Dakota Johnson has been single for a long time. She ended her relationship with boyfriend Matthew Hitt in the summer of 2016, which means that it has been a full year since she dated anyone. However, new pictures show that Dakota may have found a fling just in time for the summer.
The Fifty Shades of Grey actress was spotted hugging a “very hunky male pal” in Hollywood, sending shockwaves through her fanbase. People have not been able to identify the man, but there is a chance that he may be more than just a friend.
For the hangout (or a date), Dakota Johnson decided to keep things casual by opting for a black jumpsuit, natural locks, and sunglasses, according to Daily Mail.
She has talked about her love life in previous interviews, which showed just how sensitive she is when it comes to the matters of the heart.
“I think I’m a little bit heartbroken all the time, even when I’m in a happy relationship,” she said, according to Vogue.
“I don’t do casual very well, and my feelings, even the good ones, get so intense that they hurt.”
She has been linked with Jamie Dornan, who is her co-star in Fifty Shades franchise, but those dating rumors are nothing but hopeful speculations from eager fans. The Irish actor is married to Amelia Warner and has two babies. In fact, Amelia followed him to Canada and France when he was shooting the last two films of the series. Dakota even made an effort to hang out with the mother-of-two when filming schedules allowed.
But Jamie Dornan can’t seem to escape all the labels that come with starring in a movie about BDSM. This weekend, he took part in a golf tournament, which seems like an innocuous thing to do, but the pictures from the event immediately sent his fans gasping for air.
Check out the picture that caused so much drama.

Something that Dakota and Jamie have in common is that they both do not participate in social media. So when things like this break loose on the Internet, they are both saved from the outrage.
But Dakota’s mom, Melanie Griffith, does and takes great pleasure in giving updates about her life. Most recently, she posted about a trip she took to Aspen with her friends to celebrate July 4th.
Melanie Griffith is still an active performer, having recently signed on to perform at Laguna Playhouse.
