Early life 
In 1999, she made her film debut in Crazy in Alabama where she and her half-sister, Stella Banderas, played daughters to their real-life mother, Melanie Griffith. The film was directed by her stepfather, Antonio Banderas.
Once she graduated from high school, she signed with William Morris Agency and started her acting career. She had her first box office hit in 2010 with David Fincher's film The Social Network, in which she had a scene with Justin Timberlake. The film received eight Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture. She also appeared in four additional films: Beastly; Ezna Sands' film Theo; So Yong Kim's film For Ellen; and Larry Clark's film Savage Innocent. She has roles in several 2012 films: Christopher Neil's film Goats, with David Duchovny; Nicholas Stoller's film Five Year Engagement for producer Judd Apatow, and the feature film version of the 1987 hit television show 21 Jump Street. She also won the female lead in Chris Nelson's film "Gay Dude," written by Alan Yang.
In her first television series, she had a lead role as Kate on Ben & Kate. The show was canceled after one season in 2013, airing for four months. Johnson resumed her film career, joining the cast of Need for Speed.
In 2010, Dakota traveled to Sydney, Australia, where she shot the "Rising Star" campaign for fashion label Wish.
