Los Angeles, March 10 IANS | 7 months ago

Actress Dakota Johnson says that she struggled through years of misery in high school because she was constantly teased over tabloid reports about her celebrity parents - actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson.


Dakota, who has been cast as Anastasia Steele in the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie adaptation, was home schooled during her childhood, but she got her first taste of a more normal education in her teens when she was sent to a Catholic boarding school in northern California, reports contactmusic.com.

Dakota was initially a big fan of the idea, but her classroom dreams quickly soured.

"I was just miserable there. It was a great school, but girls in that concentration are so horrific, just horrific," she told Elle magazine.

She begged her father, "Miami Vice" star Johnson, to let her leave, and she ended up going to New Roads School in Santa Monica, California, where her parents' fame really impacted her experience.

The 24-year-old reveals students would bring in magazine clippings of gossip about her mum and dad and their well-documented substance abuse issues just to taunt her.

Dakota said, "I think people, especially the press, like to pick on children of famous people, and I think that's f**king awful.

"Things get made up. It's so, so sad. And there's absolutely nothing you can do about it as a 16 year old. You're like, 'What the f**k? Why? What did I do?'"

The stress of her home life prompted Dakota to check into rehab as a teen, but she insists it was only to seek help in dealing with her family issues.

She said: "My parents had some problems of their own that put me in a position of having to deal with very grown-up stuff at a very young age. I needed some help with that, therapy-wise."
