Melanie Griffith is one of the few people out there who's not excited to see the highly anticipated "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie.

But she has a good reason. Her daughter, Dakota Johnson, plays Anastasia Steele!

"I have not seen 'Fifty Shades of Grey.' I don't think I'm going to see it," Griffith recently told IndieWire. "[Dakota] was like, 'You guys cannot come. There's no way.' So we're not going. I did go visit for a couple of days when they were shooting just normal stuff. I did see the Room of Pain — I did go in there and check it out."

While Griffith won't be watching her 24-year-old daughter engage in any onscreen sex and raunchy S&M maneuvers, that doesn't mean she isn't proud of Johnson for landing the highly coveted "Fifty Shades" role.

"She's amazing — so good," Griffith gushed. "It's just so beautiful to see her doing this. She had her mom and her dad and her grandmother and she's just taken us all and thrown us away. She's like, 'Here I am.'"

Meanwhile, Griffith made a rare admission about her divorce from Antonio Banderas after 18 years of marriage and her plans post-split. "I'm going to do a lot of things," she said. "I'm going to do 'Pippin' on Broadway in January. It's not about my career now. It's just about finding great work and having a good time. My kids are almost grown. I'm getting divorced. I'm just happy. I'm really joyful. Life is good."
