LOS ANGELES, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Dakota Johnson took mom Melanie Griffith as her date to the 87th Academy Awards.
The 25-year-old Fifty Shades of Grey star and 57-year-old actress turned heads in solid-colored gowns at the annual Oscars ceremony. Johnson stunned in a scarlet Saint Laurent dress, while Griffith wore a black ensemble and accessorized with a sparking clutch.
Johnson and Griffith looked gorgeous on the red carpet, but made headlines for their awkward mother-daughter interview about Fifty Shades. Johnson got testy with her mom after Griffith told ABC she wasn't sure if she would watch her daughter in the erotic romantic drama.
Johnson stars as Anastasia Steele in the film, a college student who falls for BDSM-loving businessman Christian Grey. The movie is based on the E.L. James novel of the same name, and topped the box office for a second time over the weekend.
Johnson is the daughter of Griffith and actor Don Johnson, who first married in 1976 and remarried from 1989 to 1996. Griffith recently praised her daughter's accomplishments on Twitter, but admitted both of them would be "very uncomfortable" if she were to see Fifty Shades.
