Melanie Griffith has been banned from watching Fifty Shades of Grey by Dakota Johnson.

The 56-year-old actress admits she is unlikely to ever see the upcoming erotic movie, starring her 24-year-old daughter, even though she is very proud of Dakota for taking on the risky role and supported her on the set of the film.

Fifty Shades of Grey ban for mum

The blonde star, who recently split from Antonio Banderas after 18 years of marriage, told IndieWire: "I have not seen Fifty Shades of Grey.

"I don't think I'm going to see it. [Dakota] was like, 'You guys cannot come. There's no way.'

"So we're not going. I did go visit for a couple of days when they were shooting just normal stuff. I did see the Room of Pain - I did go in there and check it out."

Melanie has no doubt that her daughter will be a huge star.

She said: "She's amazing - so good. It's just so beautiful to see her doing this. She had her mom and her dad and her grandmother and she's just taken us all and thrown us away. She's like, 'Here I am.' "

Meanwhile, Melanie plans to keep busy following her separation from Antonio.

Asked about her plans for the future, she said: "I'm going to do a lot of things. I'm going to do Pippin on Broadway in January."

But she added: "It's not about my career now. It's just about finding great work and having a good time. My kids are almost grown. I'm getting divorced. I'm just happy. I'm really joyful. Life is good."
