Dakota Johnson had the best response when her dad, Don Johnson, informed her she'd be taken off the family "payroll" if she didn't go to college.
The legendary actor recalled the conversation he had with his daughter when she said she wouldn't continue her studies after high school. Watch above.
"We have a rule in the family that, you know, if you stay in school, you get to stay on the payroll. So, you go to college, you get to stay on the payroll," he said during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers.
"Toward the end of high school, I went to her and I said, 'So, do you want to go visit some colleges?' Or something like that. And she was like, 'Oh, no. I'm not going to college.'"
