Melanie Griffith was once known as brainiac because she quite literally didn’t know much about the Holocaust. No, this isn’t a sick joke, and it certainly doesn’t do those of the fairer hair color any favors either. So how is it that anyone, anyone at all can possibly grow up so completely ignorant of such a well known and documented atrocity? Well, she did know about it, it’s just that she had no idea about the extent of it.
Younger readers would be more familiar with Melanie as the mother of Fifty Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson, or the wife of Antonio Banderas. But in all fairness, she is quite a distinguished and talented actress in her own right. To tell you the truth, she has won a Golden Globe for her performance in Working Girl, and was also nominated for an Academy Award.
