"A Bigger Splash" is a showcase for "Fifty Shades of Grey" submitted by Actress Dakota Johnson.
The avatar is pretty irresponsible.
"No, it's very irresponsible. Penelope is a manipulative son of a bitch, "says Dakota Johnson.
"She is super smart, but her sexuality is off the rails."
Johnson, 26, starred in the seductively film "A Bigger Splash", who claims to be a 22-year-old, even though it is in fact a minor. Penelope's father, a record company man, is played by Ralph Fiennes. Being a rock star villa on the island of Pantelleria, star Tilda Swinton and her boyfriend Matthias Schoenaerts play also a part. The film is a black comedy and a thriller about the life of luxury as well as people's vices.
In such a world, Johnson can not be just a guest. She is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. His grandmother is Alfred Hitchcock's film star Tippi Hedren.
"Acting always interested me, my family and I feel just very proud of it." Johnson agrees to say.
Johnson speaks timidly anyway. Personal publicity is already perhaps too familiar. Johnson's first major film role was the lead role in "Fifty Shades of Grey", along with last year's biggest successes. Now, job offers are enough - but an erotic film was also stigmatized.
"At the beginning, I have to said 'no' to movies where I had to be naked."
Johnson admits that he was scared to get in to "A Bigger Splash": before Fifty Shades, Johnson had made only little roles in comedies. The sitcom called Ben and Kate - where she was in the leading female role, only with one season.
Even Fifty Shades was a risky leap of publicity, the award-winning director's Luca Guadagnino and his team offered her to display her skills.
"I met Ralph and Tilda, and both encouraged me (to do the movie). During the reading of the script I was surprised in a very good way: this is a too amazing to be true. Then I went to New York, packed up all my stuff, dye my hair, and I flew to Sicily."
Now, she is looking forward to Fifty Shades of Grey's two sequels. The first promotional tour spread the rumor that Johnson and actor Jamie Dornan don't get along very well, but the situation seems to have calmed down.
"The first movie (process) filming was not a dull moment," Johnson says diplomatically.
Is Fifty Shades a big and expensive training, where Johnson is a passenger, or whether she is also having responsibility for the success of the film?
Actress thinks a bit: "Both."

Fifty Shades of Grey star Johnson has one of the most-talked about red carpet looks of 2016, and Young says of working with her: "She's amazing, and is super, super fun and she's someone that enjoys the fashion and the process, it's really fun for us. We talk about it all the time anyway. Actresses are actresses, not all of them are super into clothes, and Dakota is really into clothes so I can talk to her about it."

Now, Griffith is passing along what she's gleaned to actress daughter Dakota Johnson. Griffith says she and Dakota's father, actor Don Johnson, try to be as honest as possible about the reality of working in Hollywood, while also encouraging the Fifty Shades of Grey star to find her own way.
"She is very strong and she's charting her own course," says Griffith. "But she does listen to her dad and I just try to stress to her that the most important part is enjoying the work and having fun and for her to really be enjoying this time in her life because it's not always this great. As great as it is for her right now, she's going to have times where she's really not having any fun, you know? It just happens.
"It's a very strange business because you either have the magic or you don't," she continued. "It's not anything you can learn from anybody. The camera either loves you or it doesn't and that's the part that's really hard and sad for many people – they just don't have that thing. Dakota has got that thing all over the place, she's just magic in front of the camera, she was born that way, it wasn't an acquired thing."

On working with Johnson in "How to be Single":
“[Dakota] reached out to me and said, ‘Hey, do you want to play my boyfriend in this movie?’ I would play her boyfriend in any movie. I love her as a person. I love working with her. I feel like we found a lot of nice little moments [on film], and sometimes it doesn’t come as easy. But with her, it really does.”
