Dakota Johnson bullied at school

Dakota Johnson films scenes with Max Martini on the set of "Fifty Shades of Grey" **NO Canada**

In an interview with Elle magazine Dakota Johnson opened up about her miserable high school years, admitting that she was constantly bullied.

The actress has revealed that other kids gave her hard time because of tabloid reports about her famous parents Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson.

Dakota was a home schooled child, but was sent to a Catholic boarding school in California when she was a teenager. It turned out to be a horrible experience.

“I was just miserable there. It was a great school, but girls in that concentration are so horrific, just horrific,” the actress said.

After begging her father to leave the boarding school, Dakota was transferred to New Roads School in Santa Monica, California.


However, things didn’t go as well as she had expected since the kids from school would bring in magazine clippings about her mom and dad and their substance abuse issues just to provoke her.

“I think people, especially the press, like to pick on children of famous people, and I think that’s f**king awful,” Johnson said. “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?'”

    Kids, but especially teenagers are very rude and very cruel at school, to the outcasts as they call them it is easy for them to find the one or two to bull on and they are happy. They just need a reason and will turn a life of their classmate into a nightmare as this is the part of their age and they want to have fun and make themselves look better and more powerful bulling people, who are weak or have more reasons to be bulled. This is sad that Dakota Johnson had to come through all this a s a teenager as there were not fault of hers, but I believe this also taught her some lessons in life or at least added to the strength of character.
