MELANIE GRIFFITH HOPES TO KEEP DAUGHTER DAKOTA JOHNSON CLOSE TO HOME
Melanie Griffith is shopping for a new place for her 24 year old daughter Dakota Johnson to live, and her first stop was The El Royale, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The building is just blocks from Melanie and Antonio Banderas’s home in Hancock Park. Dakota’s busy in Toronto filming Fifty Shades of Grey, while Melanie checks out the real estate. The El Royale is a historic building built in 1929 and designed by the same architect who did the Chateau Marmont. Lots of old Hollywood glamour, and the average rental is about $3,500 mo. (24 hour doorman – safe for a single girl) And of course everybody from Clark Gable and Loretta young to Josh Brolin and Katie Holmes have called the place home. Best of all, it’s right down the street from us, so maybe we’ll get some scoops!
