Friendship is and will always be the best ship ever. Friends keep us going, the support us, they make us feel complete. Friends are there through the good and bad times. Some would say that they are the relationships in our lives where we let our guard down and let people in.
Hearing people talk about their friendships and why they mean something to them is definitely something that we appreciate reading. Dakota Johnson recently was interviewed for Vanity Fair for a profile on Riley Keough and opened up about their very special friendship.
As you may know, both come from very famous families. Dakotas parents are Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson (and yes, if you haven’t heard of them, they were very famous back in the day) and Riley’s mom is Lisa Marie Presley. Coming from family dynasties can’t be easy, but the two found a close friendship with each other.
She continued by saying that the two had an immediate “understanding” with each other and talked about the beginning of their friendship , “We would just smoke cigarettes with our moms. And they’d call each other and be like, ‘I guess she’s going to stay with you for the next four days. Call me if she needs a ride.’ I’d go to Riley’s and then leave a week later. I don’t know if that’s normal, but, yeah, just running around LA, sharing clothes, smelling like Nag Champa. Most of it involved music festivals and dating musicians, of course.”
We stan. We love a close friendship that remains strong through the years. We can all only hope to have friendships this special in our lives.
