Fifty Shades of Grey star, Dakota Johnson, hosted Saturday Night Live this week and she brought some familiar faces for her opening monologue. Dakota’s monologue became a family affair when her parents Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson took part in a short skit about how Dakota was probably conceived during Griffith’s SNL hosting stint in 1988. Dakota revealed that her dad proposed to Griffith a second time during the guest appearance. Nine months later, Dakota was born. She joked that she “must have been conceived that night after the show, or maybe even during the show.”
Dakota then confirmed it to Melanie and Don who were in the audience. The estranged couple were averting their eyes, but confirmed that the timeline was about right. When asked about what was wrong, Don Johnson admitted, “We were just afraid you were going to be naked.”

This is a reference to Griffith’s interview during the Oscar red carpet where she revealed that she’s not interested in seeing her daughter’s raunchy film. The moment became a trending topic on social media, with people commenting on the awkwardness between Melanie and Dakota.
So, I think Dakota Johnson and Melanie Griffith actually hate each other. Or they had an awful fight in the car en route to Oscars.

The SNL guesting is the first time Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson were seen in public together after they parted ways in 1994. Earlier in the week, the two were seen at LAX prior to their flight to New York for Dakota’s Saturday Night Live appearance.
