Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin have kept their relationship private since they started dating last October. But this past weekend, cameras caught them making a rare display of public affection while walking Johnson’s dog, Zeppelin, in her Malibu neighborhood.
In one of the pics, Johnson is reaching behind Martin’s back as he tenderly grabs her hand. And in another, the two are holding hands while he walks a step in front of her.
According to the Daily Mail, the 28-year-old daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith dressed casually in a blue plaid top and distressed jeans, with sunglasses and slides. Martin sported a gray sweater and black pants, along with a trucker hat and red sneakers.

Earlier that day, photographers snapped pics of Johnson on a cupcake run, and for her errand, she was stylishly dressed in tight-fitting riding pants tucked into matching boots along with a tank top, New York Yankees cap, and sunglasses.
Now that the Fifty Shades trilogy is behind her, Johnson is starring in the remake of Suspiria with Tilda Swinton and Chloe Grace Moretz. A trailer for the film hit the internet earlier this month that had unsettling images of a rivalry between Johnson’s character, Susie Bannion, and Swinton’s character, Madame Blanc. Susie is a member of a creepy dance company overseen by the chain-smoking Blanc.
Italian director Luca Guadagnino – who previously directed the movie Call Me By Your Name – directed the bloody thriller that tells the story of at least one dancer who goes missing. At the end of the trailer, we see a metal hook on a table and a quick flash of mealworms on a woman’s face.
At CinemaCon, fans saw some graphic footage from Suspiria that featured someone literally ripping a woman apart while Johnson’s character practiced ballet in another room. Many people had to look away because the scene was so gruesome.

As for her previous work in Fifty Shades, rumors flew during filming that Johnson (Anastasia Steele) didn’t get along with her co-star Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey), and the two did not like each other. But Johnson recently put those rumors to rest by saying that the two “will be friends forever.”
Dornan says that the two went through a unique situation together, and they had to rely on each other. And, it forged a bond between them that will always be there.
Suspiria, an Amazon Studios film, will be released on November 2nd.
Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin have never confirmed their relationship, but things seem to be great between them.
