Dakota Johnson Brings the Funny on ‘Saturday Night Live’ [VIDEOS]
Dakota Johnson showed off her comedic chops as the latest host for Saturday Night Live last night (Feb. 28).
While she tapped into her sultry side on Fifty Shades of Grey, Dakota really brought the laughs when she stepped onto the SNL stage. And although she may have wanted to talk about other things during her monologue, she still alluded to her role in the movie. But it was the bit about her family that really got our attention. Daughter of actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, she not only talked about how her mom hosted the show in the 80s but also talked about the possibility that she was conceived after (or during) the show that night years ago. The skit received more reactions when both Melanie and Don were found in the audience. And when Dakota asked if the anecdote embarrassed them, her dad said they were afraid that she would be onstage naked. (Now that’s hilariously awkward.)
Dakota’s performance in last night’s episode was pretty solid with great stints in skits like “Father and Daughter Ad,” “Say What You Wanna Say” and “Fifty Shades of Grey Press Junket.” And considering her roles in 21 Jump Street and The Five-Year Engagement, she’s got the comedy down. See some of her highlight performances from the SNL episode below and get ready to laugh.
