It's been several years since the Miami Vice star, 65, and Griffith, 57, have been seen in public together.

Dakota Johnson comes from a rich background of actors and actresses and is now starting to truly flourish as one herself. Born on October 4th 1989, the 25-year-old star of Fifty Shades of Grey is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, while her stepfather’s from her mother’s later relationships include Steven Bauer and Antonio Banderas.
Having started her acting career in 1999’s Crazy In Alabama, Johnson has gone on to appear in a number of big movies, such as The Social Network, 21 Jump Street and Need For Speed, but had gone largely under the radar prior to her (somewhat surprising) casting as Anastasia Steele in this year’s adaptation of E.
