STAR TURN: Dakota Johnson at the GQ Men of the Year Party at Chateau Marmont in Hollywood.

SINGAPORE - Who's that girl? Here are five facts about Fifty Shades of Grey's new leading lady, Dakota Johnson:

1. She's bedded Justin Timberlake - sort of

The 2010 film The Social Network featured her as a sexy, scene-stealing Stanford University student who, after a steamy escapade with Napster founder Sean Parker (played by Timberlake), tips him off about hot new social network Facebook.

2. She's Hollywood royalty

Johnson is the daughter of Miami Vice star Don Johnson and actress Melanie Griffith. Antonio Banderas became her step-daddy after her mum married the Spanish actor in 1996.

3. She had her film debut at 10 years old

She starred in Banderas' 1999 film Crazy in Alabama, in which she and her half-sister, Stella Banderas, played Griffith's daughters.

4. She's not as "adventurous" as Anastasia Steele

Johnson is much more conservative and cautious about her romantic choices, telling USA Today in October last year: "I have a boyfriend that I've been with for a while. I've only been in long-term relationships. I've never really dated myself."

5. She's quite the model

Johnson was signed with modelling agency IMG in 2006 and was part of the Mango Jeans 2009 Spring/Summer campaign. She first got interested in modelling when she was 12 after a Teen Vogue shoot with other celebrity kids.
