Dakota Johnson Labels Herself 'Very Defiant Person', Thinks Rules Are 'Stupid'

The 'Fifty Shades of Grey' actress talks about dismissing rigid rules and opens up about the thing she hates the most about doing a press tour for her projects.

AceShowbiz - Dakota Johnson, the 34-year-old daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, has offered her distinct outlook on life and career. In a candid interview with Bustle, she revealed her longstanding disdain for rules and conventional structures.

The actress expressed, "I am a very defiant person. If somebody tells me I can't do something, I am shaking, even if I had no interest in doing that thing." This defiant streak traces back to her childhood, as Johnson explained, "I think I just find rules and some structure really ridiculous, silly and stupid."

Despite her aversion to strictures, Dakota is not entirely dismissive of others' feelings. She maintains a balance by accommodating and respecting others' emotions and ideas. She shared, "I will accept and accommodate everyone's feelings and ideas and thoughts. But as long as I'm not hurting another human being in some way - even with my work, with agents or managers or whomever - I'll listen to everyone and take everything very seriously and then I will do what feels really right to me."

In the professional arena, Dakota's authenticity shines through. "It's hard for me to fake it. It's hard for me sometimes to go along with the silliness of doing a press tour," she confessed, underscoring her commitment to staying genuine in an industry often fraught with pretenses.

Her determination to follow her passion was tested early on. Dakota's parents preferred she attend college instead of diving into acting. Recalling her father Don Johnson's stance, she said, "He cut me off. He said if you go to college, you still get an allowance. And I was like, 'Well, I'm going to be an actress.' So he was like, 'Alright, well you're on your own.' I was cut off." This decisive moment was pivotal, setting her on the path of self-reliance and creative freedom.

Dakota Johnson's story is a compelling testament to the importance of following one's instincts and the courage to defy expectations. Her journey offers inspiration to young people navigating their own paths, reminding them that authenticity and passion can triumph over conventional norms.
