There have been SO many casting rumors about who would be cast as Anastasia in the film version of the uber book hit Fifty Shades of Grey, but after months of speculation and guesses, an actress has been named. The author E L James tweeted on Monday:
“I am delighted to let you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.”
And Dakota Johnson is Hollywood royalty as a third generation actress. She is the 23-year-old daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, and the granddaughter of legendary actress Tippi Hedren.
Previously, Dakota Johnson has starred in The Social Network and the sitcom Ben and Kate.
Hope her folks are okay with their little girl taking on such a racy role!
