Thanks to the sensual and passionate 50 Shades of Grey series, Dakota Johnson gained national fame. However, she made her acting debut when she was just a young child, co-starring with her mother in the 1999 film Crazy in Alabama. Johnson has therefore been a part of the industry for a considerable amount of time, which has resulted in her friendship with Elvis Presley’s goddaughter Riley Keough.

Johnson talked about the unique relationship she has with her close friend Riley Keough, which all began with a chance encounter when they were just 16 years old in the parking lot of an In-N-Out restaurant. Dakota reflected on their strong bond and said, “It was like finding a soulmate.”  Johnson, the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, and Keough, the child of the late Lisa Marie Presley and Danny Keough, both came from renowned families, thus their friendship appeared to develop naturally.

They had a spirit of adventure and camaraderie in the beginning. During their carefree times, Johnson recalled how they would smoke cigarettes with their moms and how whenever she went o Keough’s place she would leave after a week. As they engaged in creative pursuits together, their bond grew stronger. At the age of 19, they even formed the joke band Folky Porn as they were in New York, hiding after their respective breakups.

Johnson revealed their musical antics, saying, “With my brother Alexander, we would do three-part harmonies on Hank Williams and John Prine songs, and we’d film them on Photo Booth.”

Interestingly, this experience of being in a band led Keough to take on the role of a rock band singer in Daisy Jones & the Six, a role that kind of imitated their own playful musical journey. This role also led to her first-ever Emmy nomination
