Dakota Johnson, renowned for her portrayal of Anastasia Steele in the “Fifty Shades” series, recently emphasized the utmost importance of rest in her life. In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Johnson disclosed that she strives for a minimum of 10 hours of sleep but often finds herself easily extending it to 14 hours, emphasizing, “I’m not functional with less than 10. I don’t have a regular wake-up time; it depends on my schedule. Sleep is my top priority.”
Following a rejuvenating night’s sleep, Johnson skips breakfast and swiftly indulges in a favorite morning ritual – a comforting oat milk flat white. As for self-care practices, the actress has a fondness for baths, expressing, “I’ll immerse myself in a bathtub at any given moment. Water has a grounding effect for me, especially if the day feels overwhelming.”
Dakota, the daughter of actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, shared insights into her upbringing, acknowledging the valuable lessons gleaned from her parents’ on-screen presence. She admires their confidence and notes her mother’s enigmatic allure, appreciating that she “doesn’t give it all away” and maintains an air of mystery.
Beyond her acting career, Johnson is actively involved in narrating the documentary “The Disappearance of Shere Hite.” The film explores the life of feminist sex educator Shere Hite, who faced backlash for her groundbreaking 1970 book, “The Hite Report,” offering insights into female sexuality and the female orgasm. Johnson reflects on Hite’s intelligence and eloquence, expressing concern about her being erased from history.
In a recent endeavor, Dakota curated Hite’s work for the “100 Years of Design and Decency” exhibition at Miami’s Museum of Sex. Passionate about sparking conversations on sexual wellness, Johnson said, “It’s intriguing and somewhat alarming how we’re still grappling with discussions around sexual wellness. I hope this exhibition initiates dialogues on how we approach this topic in today’s context.”
