Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson have been divorced for a long time, but they came together on Wednesday night to support their daughter Dakota Johnson as her latest film, How to Be Single premiered in New York City.

Donning skinny leather pants and a long black coat, Melanie Griffith looked lovely as she posed alongside Don Johnson inside the venue.
It was back in 1976 when Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson tied the knot–the first time. That marriage lasted just six months, but 13 years later–in 1989–the two gave it another try. That time their marriage lasted about six years.
Don Johnson got married again in 1999 to Kelley Phleger. The two are still married, and Phleger attended Dakota Johnson’s big premiere–politely staying in the shadows as Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson posed for pics with their daughter. Half-brother Jesse Johnson–Don Johnson and Kelley Phleger’s son–joined in the family photos.
Dakota Johnson stars in How to Be Single alongside Rebel Wilson. The film allows Dakota to show off her humorous side–something that wasn’t nearly as obvious in Fifty Shades of Grey.

It was just over a week ago that Dakota Johnson shared that it’s not always easy having famous parents like Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. She cited watching her parents have sex with other people in films as one of the hardships.
Kudos to Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson–along with Don’s wife Kelley Phleger–for putting Dakota Johnson first at her premiere–casting aside any animosities they may have, and celebrating her latest achievement.
