Has Dakota's raunchy role doomed her relationship?
Dakota Johnson is already a household name here amongst the YourTango crowd, but when Fifty Shades of Grey finally hits theaters in February of next year, she'll be set for global superstardom.
Unfortunately for the A-lister-in-the-making, Johnson's longtime boyfriend Jordan Masterson may not be so comfortable with that idea. Reports are circulating that Masterson is jealous of Johnson's new celebrity status, even though she comes from a Hollywood acting family.
An insider whispered that Johnson's media attention "bugs him." Who is this dude? Here's all you need to know about Jordan Masterson — and the likelihood the couple can weather the ongoing media storm:
Jordan Masterson is an actor as well.
Masterson had a recurring role on ABC Family's Greek as well as Last Man Standing (where he replaced Nick Jonas). He's played several bit, guest and recurring roles in other series and movies, including The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Perhaps his lack of a starring role is why he's a bit miffed by Johnson's sudden success?
Masterson's from an acting family, too.
His older half-brothers are Danny Masterson, who starred as Hyde on That '70s Show, and Chris Masterson, who played oldest brother Francis on Malcolm In The Middle. Jordan guest-starred on both shows with his big bros.
He's a Scientologist.
Masterson and his brothers are all firm followers of the Church Of Scientology, and rumor has that Masterson wanted Johnson to convert to the sci-fi-based religion to help cope with her fame. And to, you know, help him cope with the fact that she's filming S&M scenes with another dude.
He may have daddy issues.
Masterson's father told press that he hasn't seen or spoken with his son in nine years, pinning the blame on his excommunication from the Church Of Scientology. While there may be other issues and underlying causes at play, Masterson may not have the steadiest foundation in his own life to form a healthy relationship with someone else.
He may have issues with sex, too.
Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote that both pain and sex — the main themes in Fifty Shades of Grey — are both "tools of degradation" and used "to shrink people and cut their alertness, knowingness, power and reach." He also developed a "Know To Sex" scale to determine people's attitudes toward sex. Maybe that's why Masterson is so on edge about Johnson's role as Ana Steele — she'll likely know a lot more about sex by the time filming wraps!
