What is Dakota Johnson Net Worth ?
Dakota Johnson is an American model and actress who has a net worth of $14 million. Dakota Johnson is probably best known for playing the lead role in the “Fifty Shades” film series, although she has been involved in numerous other projects over the years. Over the years, she has exhibited an impressive range, playing a wide variety of different characters across many genres.
Early Life: Dakota Mayi Johnson was born on October 4th of 1989 in Austin, Texas. Dakota was born into an acting family, as both of her parents are known actors. Her father, Don Johnson, is known for playing the role of James Crockett in the hit 80s series “Miami Vice.” Dakota’s mother, Melanie Griffith, is famous for roles in movies like 1988’s “Working Girl.”
Her father wasn’t present during her birth, as he was on the set of the film “The Hot Spot.” Her extended family is also connected in the entertainment world, as her maternal grandparents are former actors. Antonio Banderas was once Dakota’s stepfather. She also has six half-siblings, two on from her mother and four from her father.
Dakota was raised on film sets, traveling with her parents to various locations as they played a number of different roles. She was never able to lay down roots for very long, and this affected her sense of stability. Johnson was also diagnosed with ADHD at an early age, and she struggled as she switched from school to school as her family traveled around the country. Dakota later admitted that she struggled with depression, which started at the age of 14 and eventually required her to go into rehabilitation in 2007.
Career: Johnson began her professional career as a model. She first became interested in modeling at the age of 12 and appeared in “Teen Vogue” alongside children of other celebrities. Her parents insisted that she finish high school before she began her acting career, even though Dakota was interested in acting from a young age.
Although she was rejected from the Juilliard School after graduating from high school, she pushed on with her acting dreams. In 1999, Johnson made her film debut in “Crazy in Alabama,” a film directed by her stepfather, Antonio Banderas.
Roles came more freely after her success with “Fifty Shades of Grey,” and later in 2015 she appeared in “Black Mass,” “A Bigger Splash,” and “Cymbeline.” In 2016, she followed up with “How to Be Single.” In 2018, Dakota appeared in “Suspiria,” a supernatural horror film. To prepare for the role, she had to undergo rigorous dance training.
Fifty Shades Salary: The original “Fifty Shades of Grey” film did not come with a massive paycheck for Dakota. If reports are to be believed, she took home just $250,000 for her services on the first film in the franchise. However, she apparently negotiated a 7-figure salary for the next two films, which makes sense considering how successful the original movie was at the box office.
Relationships: Dakota Johnson has been romantically involved with a number of other artists, including a musician named Noah Gersh and actor Jordan Masterson. She also dated Matthew Hitt, who is the lead vocalist for the rock band Drowners. In 2017, she began a relationship with musician Chris Martin.
Real Estate: In 2016, Dakota Johnson purchased a home in Hollywood Hills for $3.55 million. The property lies alongside numerous mansions owned by other celebs, and it was built in 1947 by renowned architect Carl Maston. The four-bedroom home features a lap pool, and Johnson renovated parts of the interior after her purchase.
