Dakota Johnson goes from passive brunette to dirty blonde.

Judging by the painfully awkward promo tour for Fifty Shades of Grey, we’re willing to bet Dakota Johnson is pleased to distance herself from the flick by appearing as a punchy blonde in her next release, a gritty update of Shakespeare’s Cymbeline.

Starring alongside Ethan Hawke and Milla Jovivich. Dakota plays Imogen (totally a blonde name) in this dark tale of dirty cops, a biker gang and a drug kingpin.

As a blonde she suddenly looks much more like mum Melanie Griffiths (her dad is ’80s spunk Don Johnson, of course). And hopefully Ma Griffiths will be a bit prouder of her daughter’s work that she appears to be in this red carpet clip.
