Did you know there's a website where you can type in the title of a movie you're about to watch with your parents so an unexpected sex scene doesn't pop up and make everyone really squirmy/decide it's time for a bathroom break? Too bad there wasn't an IRL one for Dakota Johnson when she was growing up.

In the cover story for the latest issue of Net-a-Porter's Edit magazine, the How to Be Single actress and master wardrobe-malfunction handler recalled how, as a child, she'd accompany her parents Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson on movie sets.

"I was around for a lot of it and I would watch them," she said. "But there were also things I could see that I didn't want to, like watch my parents have sex with other people. And there was a scene where my mom got slapped in the face. I lost my mind! I couldn't deal with that at all."

At least Johnson's mom had the grace to skip Fifty Shades? ::shudders::
