Dakota Johnson wants to follow in the footsteps of her parents

06/08/2008 at 12:06 PM ET

Dakotajohnson_15666543_max_cbbDakota Mayi Johnson – the daughter of actors Don Johnson, 58, and Melanie Griffith, 50 — has recently been spending her time dabbling in the modeling world.  Although the 18-year-old just signed with the famous model agency IMG, she has already completed what she considered her "first real job" with none other than Vogue.  Shared Dakota,

It was pretty surreal, the fact that I was doing Vogue.  It didn’t really sink in until afterward.

With a seemingly bright future ahead of her as a model, her focus is ultimately turning to something more familiar to her: acting.  Gracing the cover of the newest issue of Aspen Peak, Dakota reveals that she is in search of what she’s passionate about, and according to her, she thinks she may have found it.

Everyone has that thing that sparks some sort of emotion in them.  Acting does that for me.

Not knowing where her future may lead, Dakota — who says she’s uncertain "where I’m going to be tomorrow or in a week" — is at least sure that she is taking her time to get there.

I don’t know what’s going to happen, and I’m not rushing anywhere.

Dakota seems to have the prettiest features from her parents. Good luck to her.

She’s a very pretty girl. She has that All-American look to her.

She was so cute in Crazy in Alabamm when she was running after her mother’s car carrying her little sister.

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
