Playing 'Fifty Shades' Star Dakota Johnson on 'How to Be Single': My Parents Can See This Movie!

After her racy role in Fifty Shades of Grey, Dakota Johnson is relieved to be in a movie that won't be uncomfortable to watch with her parents.

The 26-year-old actress walked the red carpet of the How to Be Single premiere in New York City with her mom, Melanie Griffith, and dad, Don Johnson, by her side. While the film is rated R, Dakota assured ET that it's far tamer than Fifty Shades.
