LOS ANGELES: Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson recently revealed that she still doesn’t know where she stands in Hollywood, or what life has in store for her next. The actor, who was last seen in How to be Single, and is currently in the process of filming Fifty Shades Darker, shared that she feels pressurised when she thinks about her future.

“I still feel like I don’t know what I’m doing,” she said during an interview. “I’m unsure of what my life will be like. I have such an obsession with making movies that I probably will always do that. But sometimes my life can feel so suffocating, and then it can feel so massive, like I don’t have a handle on it at all, and I don’t know where it’s going or what I’m going to do.”

Johnson said that he may be busy with her film projects right now, but she also keeps wondering whether that’s all there is to her life. She added that it seems like the world is “so fast to move its interest to someone else”.

“When I think about filmmakers and actors that I have admired my whole life, I’ve admired their entire body of work. I have admired what they began with and what they’re doing now. And now I feel like there’s such a weird pressure to find the new face,” she continued.”I don’t get it at all. I want to see women evolve. I want to see a body of work. I want to see all of it.”
