Griffith admitted that she didn't want to see the film in an interview on the red carpet at the 87th Academy Awards held here Sunday night, reports mirror.co.uk.

"She's a really good actress. I don't need to see it to know how good she is," Griffith said.

To which Johnson said: "Alright! You don't have to see it. Jesus Christ."

The 25-year-old essays the role of Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of the E.L. James novel "Fifty Shades of Grey". She has also shot multiple sex scenes with co-star Jamie Dornan for the film.

The interviewer then asked Griffith if she found it awkward because of the sex in the film, to which Johnson responded: "It's a movie. She knows that."

Griffith then tried to smooth things over with her daughter by saying she'd watch the film if she asked her to.
