Blind Item #4

Even with the help of her mother, this A-/B+ list actress is barely getting any work and the work she is getting is not that great. This is why so many people turned down the franchise role she took. It was a career killer.

Dakota Johnson

Ha ha

MJ said...

D Johnson, and i think in her case it counts, too, that her others movies haven't benn successes

if they were, she would have had others roles, killer franchise or not

I don't get what it would be a career Killer. Plenty of other actresses did similarly like Kim Bassinger in 9 1/2 WEEKS. Maybe her attitude is the career killer.

Chillax said...

She just does not have that je ne sais quoi needed to last in the business. She is quite bland. Beautiful but not super memorable.

Aquagirl said...

9 1/2 weeks was a great movie!

Gen-z99 said...

Because she is as bland as bland gets.I said it since and I said it again the role should have gone to an exoticcal not some plain ass white vanilla girl like Dakota and that guy.

parissucksliterally said...

Dakota Johnson, yes.

There is nothing interesting about her. At all.

Flashy Vic said...

Did anyone else fantasise about tying Dakota up?

Sorry to be gross, but I certainly didn't.

Even if that kink was my thing, which it isn't, she just isn't attractive enough to entice anyone who isn't into that thing enough to be bothered. Sorry.

difference is 9 1/2 weeks was a good movie with very good acting. kim basinger was great in it. dakota johnson took a role in a bad movie (made $$ but it was seen more due to curiosity) that was going to get a lot of scrutiny. she sucked. she's not a good actress. she's never shown any evidence of talent. she's pretty in a different way and has famous parents. that's it.
she shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath with kim basinger in 9 1/2 weeks.

FrenchGirl said...

Watch Suspiria. Johnson is very good.

nancer said...

i read 5 pages of critics' synopses on rotten tomatoes and didn't see her name mentioned in a single one. couldn't have been THAT good. LOL.

Dakota Johnson calls the paps on herself SO MUCH. It’s odd and embarrassing

Unknown said...

She was great in the short-loved sitcom she did with Nat Faxon. She IS talented, just has had no- or bad-luck, IMO.

hunter said...

she has the PERSONALITY OF A BAG OF SAND fer chrissakes you guys let's at least cut the shit.

She may technically be "talented" but she has no sparkle and has the presence of yesterday's leftovers.

This has a lot less to do with the shit material of 50 Shades - if they had cast someone - like Ruby Rose - who really lights up a screen come on - OITNB catapulted her. Or someone like Taryn Manning who - trailer face okay but she is an EXCELLENT ACTRESS who delivers a punch on screen.

So does Natasha Lyonne - I've been watching her screen sass since American Pie and, while troubled, she definitely has the "it" factor.

Sorry Dakota - nobody cares about you and your shitty hairstyle.

hunter said...

Also Emma Stone - she's "average" in the looks department - let's be real, but she is VERY compelling on screen, lots of action behind her eyes, she's TRYING and she's great!!

I'm also a huge fan of Hayden P's acting, regardless of all the stuff we know. I do think she's an excellent actress.

Nicole said...

Id love to see Selyma Hayak tied up--and I'm a chick.

trufflepig said...

I can think of a number of A-list actresses, even Oscar winners, who are a lot blander than her. Most of them are boring as fuck. And most of them can't act. Let's face it: 90% of Hollywood sucks at acting!

Sean said...

That's insulting to vanilla

KOB said...

I don't think she's a bad actress, but I also don't think she's amazing. I respect her choice that she wants to avoid big studios, but that is where the work and money is. Small indie films struggle to get made, and beggars cant be choosers. I also think people are getting fed up with her constant papwalks which are clearly self staged, and her relationship with Chris, from the outside at least, looks miserable. If you want work Dakota, stop avoiding the events where you "sell your wares" so to speak, like Cannes. You cant hide away forever but expect the roles to flood in

Angela said...

I can remember a few blinds where Enty would tear Charlie Hunnam a new one for turning down the part that should have made him a star.

Looks like Enty doesn't remember them.

Jennifer said...

@Unknown

I liked that show too. Everything gets cancelled.

C’est Vrai said...

I kinda like Dakota Johnson, but admittedly I’m not film snob. When I’m sad and need to laugh I like to watch that movie how to be single I thought she was funny in that. She is far less annoying then a lot of other starlets out there. Plus she gets to hang with GOOP and Chris Martin lol

KOB said...

Come to think of it, I would blame the franchise at all. I remember an Entry blind saying she was turning down roles to stay by her grumpy ass boyfriends side 24/7 making her sound like a grade 1 clinger. So which is it Enty?

Stevie Nixed said...

Emilia Clark turned down the role. Prob happy she did.

Drewholtaus said...

Dakota needs to marry chris and just give up the acting thing

Raspy said...

She's not. Same bland delivery with every line even after the lame reveal at the end. Super obvious when her body double was dancing, Dakota couldn't even be bothered to develop muscle tone for the role. Atrocious film.

texasrose said...

So don johnson isn't trying to help her too??

Vita said...

Unknown - I came to write the same thing...the show was Ben and ? Two names is all I remember. I was stunned bc every review called her a breakout star, charming, charismatic, incandescent, even! Then it got cancelled and she opted for 50 Shades. OMG was that bad.

Anyway, she was pretty good on SNL, and was pretty funny on talk shows, though she needs to bag the soft-spoken mumbles.

Point being, I think she's got potential, she just needs the right part, but there are so many vying for the exact same thing.

VikingSong said...

I'm not a fan of Dakota Johnson either @Gen-Z99, but that doesn't excuse your racist comments regarding White women. If another poster made derogatory remarks like that about Black, Asian or Hispanic et al., women all hell would break loose..

rabbit said...

What Hunter said.

MissDavie said...

Dakota Johnson. I'm honestly surprised she's had as much of a career as she has.

Jane said...

I don't blame the franchise as such, it's more down to her not bothering or just turning down jobs so she can stay near her so called boyfriend. He and all the planned pap photos are doing more harm. Before she was with Chris she went to a lot of social events & since she's been with him hardly any
