The film was directed by her stepfather, Antonio  Banderas. Dakota resumed her schooling and waited several years  before she decided to become a professional actress and model. In  2006, she was voted Miss Golden Globe, a launching pad bestowed  on off-spring of famous parents.

The film received eight Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture. She also appeared in three additional films: Beastly,  alongside Vanessa Hudgens and Mary-Kate Olsen; Ezna Sands’ film, Chloe & Theo; and So Yong Kim’s film, For Ellen; She had roles in several other films: Goats, with David Duchovny; Nicholas Stoller’s film, The Five-Year Engagement, for producer Judd Apatow, and the  hit feature film version of the 1987 television show, 21 Jump  Street that made Johnny Depp a star. She also won the female lead  in the film Date and Switch, Her first television show, Ben and Kate, where she played “Kate”, aired on Fox during the Fall 2012 season. It  was canceled in 2013, and she quickly resumed her feature film  career with three high-profile films: Need for Speed, Cymbeline, the  modern-day adaptation of the William Shakespeare play, “Cymbeline”, and the starring role of “Anastasia Steele” in Fifty Shades of Grey, the  adaptation of the best-selling erotic novel, “Fifty Shades of Grey”. She  beat out many young actresses for the coveted role of Anastasia, and  the film became a worldwide hit, making her a star. She won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress for “Fifty  Shades of Grey”. She has continued to seek challenging roles, such as of a young mother who loses her son in Black Mass, opposite her  “21 Jump Street” cast-mate Johnny Depp, and of a temptress in A Bigger Splash. She has balanced her dramatic career by doing  comedies as well, such as How to Be Single. Her other film credits include: Bad Times at the El Royale, The Peanut Butter Falcon,  Suspiria, Wounds, Our Friend, and The High Note.
