Dakota Johnson makes a splash in quirky fish dress as she joins co-star Sean Penn for Daddio screening at Toronto International Film Festival
Dakota Johnson, Sean Penn, and Christy Hall attended the screening of their movie Daddio at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday.
Johnson, 33, who stars in the film alongside Penn, looked typically gorgeous in a whimsical nude-toned dress with a fish print.
The longtime actress stunned with her lustrous brunette locks flowing over her chest with her signature bangs.
Sean, 62, kept his look simple as he wore a black suit with a black button-up shirt.
And writer/director Hall, had the same idea as she also donned pleated black trousers and a sheer black top.

Johnson’s flowy frock was rounded out with a pair of woven, peep-toe, wine-colored mule heels.
She added glinting necklace that was made with a delicate gold chain and a pendant featuring emerald stone.
Her face was made up with warm tones highlighting her cheekbones and a matte shade coated on her pout.
A muted purple manicure was displayed on her natural, short nails, complementing her footwear which was a similar shade.
Sean looked handsome with a shadow of a white beard and his short, graying hair style with a wispy flair.
Daddio was produced by Dakota’s independent entertainment company TeaTime Pictures.
She and Penn are the sole stars of the drama, which sees the duo in just one location throughout the movie’s entirety.
Following the two through New York City in a cab ride from JFK Airport to midtown Manhattan, the plot tracks a single conversation between the duo.

In the taxi ride, the driver (Penn) and passenger (Johnson) are strangers who discuss various subjects ranging from romantic love to childhood trauma.
Addressing the intimacy of the actor’s dialogue, Hall told Entertainment Weekly, ‘It’s easier, I think, to bare your soul to someone like a cabbie, because you know you’re never going to see them again.’
And she praised the 13 Shades Of Grey star’s performance as she gushed, ‘[Dakota] brings a remarkable complexity to her character, skillfully excavating profound depths in ways that took this role to places well beyond what I had imagined.’
She explained further, ‘From start to finish, you truly cannot divert your gaze. She embodies a character who is confident yet vulnerable.’
