Dakota Johnson has publicly called out her mum Melanie Griffith for sharing photos of her on social media without her consent. Although the 32-year-old actor, who is best known for her starring role in Fifty Shades of Grey, is no stranger to the camera and does have her own social media profiles, she is pretty low-key when it comes to her online presence. It's no wonder then, that she had a few words to say about her mum's decision to share snaps of her online.

Speaking to James Corden on The Late Late Show With James Corden this week (19 January), the actor opened up about her frustration, especially when she finds out her mum – who has half a million followers – has shared a throwback to Instagram.

"I don't like it, but I also don't go on social media, so I don't find out about it until it's really baked into the Internet, and somebody will send it to me like, 'Oh, you were so ugly—or you were so cute, when you had braces and a slicked back ponytail'," she told the host.

"I become like a 12-year-old and I'm like, 'Mom, you can't do that. We've had this conversation so many times!'" the actor added. "She doesn't care."

But, like most kids, Dakota has had her fair share of cringe moments when it comes to her parents. "My mom is the most amazing person, but she embarrasses me in front of a lot of people," the actor recalled, before revealing her mum once called her out in front of her crush when she was just eight-years-old. "I was across the airport behind a plant," Dakota laughed, admitting that she tried to her best "to be invisible."

"It was obvious, I was very visible," she added. "I couldn't hide behind the plant… it wasn't like a tree."

We've all been there, right?
