Melanie Griffith is over the moon about her daughter
Dakota Johnson's upcoming role as Anastasia Steele, opposite
Charlie Hunnam's Christian Grey
, in the film version of
' "Fifty Shades of Grey."
Well, she was over the moon, anyway -- until fans of the book started tweeting nasty things about the casting choice.
After James announced the news of Johnson and Hunnam's new roles, Melanie tweeted a big congrats to her daughter with "Eastbound & Down" star
But it was not long until Griffith was cursing at a fan who did not share her sentiment. She responded to an unkind tweet that calls Dakota "homely" and the casting choice "horrible" with, "Wow! You're quite the b**** aren't you? #dontmesswithmama" Whoops.
Meanwhile, a producer for the film reveals Johnson and Hunnam were the obvious choice, based on their chemistry at auditions. What do you think of Dakota as Anastasia?
