In 1999's Crazy in Alabama, directed by Antonio Banderas and starring her mother Melanie Griffith, Dakota Johnson played her first acting role.
Johnson, who played Sondra in the film, revealed to Architectural Digest that she had previously delivered an Easter basket to Madonna while
while Banderas was filming Evita with the pop icon in Budapest in 1996. This wasn't the first time Johnson had spent time with her stepfather on a set.
Banderas earlier stated that he still treasures those memories "My daughter, whom I adore. I've been touring the globe while carrying her on my shoulders."
Johnson attended the 2017 Academy Awards, and while she looked stunning in a gold Gucci gown, it wasn't the first time.
Johnson went to the Oscars in 2000 with her stepfather and mother when she was 10 years old. Johnson, who was dressed in a purple dress and jacket,
even conducted interviews with the pair and the late Joan Rivers. When Rivers enquired as to whether this was Johnson's first Oscars, Johnson charmingly turned to Griffith and remarked, "Um...is it?"
The endearing moniker Dakota had given him as a child, "Paponio," which is a combination of papa, which is "daddy" in Spanish, and Antonio, was revealed to him by Vulture. "Paponio, I'm her Antonio papa," she said.
Johnson got emotional when she presented an award to Banderas at the 2019 Hollywood Film Awards.
