How Dakota Johnson Totally Embarrassed David Letterman


"Fifty Shades of Grey" star Dakota Johnson managed to turn David Letterman about fifty shades of red Tuesday night while the two were chatting about her mother, Melanie Griffith.

"Your mom used to come on the show all the time. And I really loved your mom," said David Letterman on the "Late Show."

"She brought you handcuffs one time," said Dakota Johnson. "Are you my dad?"

"I just..." said Dave.

Well, then. We never knew Melanie and Dave were that close.

But, as Dakota politely reminded us, her dad is actually "Miami Vice" star Don Johnson. So you can stop blushing so hard now, Dave.

But this isn't the first, uh, bold move the "Fifty Shades" actress has pulled recently.

She revealed to Glamour U.K. last week she snagged some scandalous mementos from the movie set after filming wrapped. "I stole lots of the underwear - they were comfortable."

Well, considering what we learned Tuesday night about Dakota's mom, we're guessing she'd be oddly proud.
