Johnson Siblings Ranked Oldest to Youngest

6 Dakota Johnson Siblings: Ranked Oldest to Youngest

With a last name like Johnson, we could be talking about anyone. When it comes to Hollywood royalty, Johnson’s could be a dime a dozen. Though several Hollywood families bear the same name, there aren’t many quite like Dakota’s. Dakota Johnson and her five siblings are a household name in acting, and if you’ve had a chance to catch any of Dakota’s past or recent work, you’ll know why.

She is the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, both of whom have experienced the pinnacle of success in their field of acting and film producing. It was inevitable she and her five siblings would carry the mantle as some of the industry’s most bankable, box office drawing stars.

Dakota began her career before she was a teenager. However, it wasn’t until her role in Fifty Shades of Grey as Anastasia Steele, which sent a shockwave through pop culture, that she became known on a first name basis and had directors desperate to cast her in their next scandalous romantic drama.

In 2022, it’s easy for her to attract much of the media attention as the centerpiece of her family, but she has five siblings who also deserve a mention for their accomplishments in the industry. So join me as we draw the curtains back and take a look at the illustrious Johnson clan, ranking them from oldest to youngest!

Dakota Johnson has enjoyed the highest tier of fame as an American actress, producer, and model. Thanks to her recurring role in the Fifty Shades series, she skyrocketed to the top of every casting agent’s wish list as a marquis movie star.

Dakota has had small roles in many films that we now consider classics, with The Social Network (2010) being the most prominent. Fans of her career might even consider her breakthrough role not to have come from the Fifty Shades erotic drama, but from her supporting role in the widely praised action comedy 21 Jump Street (2012).

Dakota was a BAFTA Rising Star Award nominee in 2016, and the accolades didn’t stop there. She has a People’s Choice Award and a nomination for two MTV Movie & TV Awards. Her impressive career resume tells us that she has a knack for picking excellent scripts. She’s been in films like the mob drama Black Mass, Suspiria, The Lost Daughter, and the endearing comedy-drama The Peanut Butter Falcon.

Johnson has been open about her struggles with depression since her teen years and has spoken about how checking into a rehabilitation clinic and undergoing therapy has been instrumental to her recovery. Throughout adolescence, she was interested in acting but was dissuaded from entering the cut-throat industry until she was out of high school. It proved to be a wise decision considering how successful she’s become.

Stella Banderas maintains a close relationship with her parents, but did file a petition to have her original last name of Griffith dropped. According to her, it was to simplify her name and make it shorter, presumably to make it more marketable.

She was quoted as saying: “As well, I typically do not use ‘Griffith’ when referring to myself or on documents. So, dropping the name would match my regular use.”

Jasper Breckenridge Johnson has not followed the family blueprint thus far in his life. He’s the son of Don Johnson and Kelley Phleger.
