“Everyone has seen “50 Shades of Grey.” Have youuuu?” ABC’s Lara Spencer asks mom-daughter dates Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson on the red carpet.
Griffith, 1989 Oscar nominee for “Working Girl,” has not seen the film. “I don’t think I can. I think it would be strange,” says Griffith.
Why would it be weird to see your daughter as Anastasia Steele, the college senior who falls for Christian Grey, a 26-year-old entrepreneur who has “very singular” tastes when it comes to relationships and floggers? (Even if Johnson is arguably the best part of the film.)
And thus begins the back-and-forth familiar to mothers and daughters everywhere.
“Alright! You don’t have to see it,” concedes an exasperated Johnson. We can’t hear what she says off-mic, but we’re pretty sure she ends it with some variation of “Geez, Mom!”
Aw! Famous mothers and daughters. They’re just like us!
