“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.

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!
