Dakota Johnson is just too happy that she got to play the character of Anastasia Steele in "50 Shades of Grey" trilogy. Fortunately, the movie adaptation of E.L. James' novel has been a worldwide hit, and the 26-year-old star is proud that she has been known.

"I'm proud of Fifty Shades of Grey. I don't need to distance myself from that," the actress told UK Vogue, as cited by Movie Pilot when asked about the life before and after the film. "The more work I do, the more the general public sees the different things I can do. Do I think it opened doors? Yeah. More people know my name."

This is maybe the benefit of having famous parents. The model is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson.  "I think people, especially the press, like to pick on children of famous people and I think that's fucking awful," she told Elle.

"Things get made up. It's so, so sad. And there's absolutely nothing you can do about it as a 16-year-old," she added. She was even surprised why did they choose her, thinking what she ever did to get picked.

Meanwhile, in the second installment of the much-awaited movie, "50 Shades Darker," fans are waiting to see the new characters that will be added. International Design Times reported new roles will include Jack Hyde, Elena Lincoln/Mrs. Robinson and Leila Williams.

Also, Henry Cavill, Ian Somerhalder, Theo James, Charlize Theron, Cara Delevingne and Alexis Bledel would be introduced to join the highly anticipated movie. To recall, the filming of the next sequel has been delayed for it doesn't have "casting progress at all."

If ever it will pursue its original date on Feb. 10, 2017, News Every Day noted that cameras should start rolling this year and get a "casting director very soon." "We're nowhere near casting. We haven't gotten into anything like that. We don't even have a casting director on it yet," Dana Brunetti said.
