The real cool mom is Melanie Griffith, which Dakota Johnson confirmed during an appearance on The Late Last Show with James Corden. Not only did she mention that Griffith took her to get her belly button pierces — at age 14 — she was also on hand when Johnson got her very first tattoo. "She took me to get my belly button pierced when I was 14, and she also got her belly button pierced. I don't know why I am telling you this," Johnson told Corden, before adding, "My mom took me to get my first tattoo." Another fun fact came out as well. Johnson also said that when she got her belly button pierced, Griffith got one, too.

"'I'm not a tattoo fiend. It's 2021. That is conservative," Johnson said. She noted that as she's gotten older, she does have some regrets. "I regret some of them because they are just silly now."

Instead, the character that he ended up getting actually translates to "happy go lucky." "It means happy go lucky, which I'm not mad at," he said. "But then someone else told me they thought it might mean 'crane.'" "Machine or a bird?" Johnson asked. "The machine, I think," Corden said. "I'm fine with 'happy go lucky.' I'm pleased with 'tattoo.' And if it means 'crane,' I'll live with it."
