"I'm so, so proud of Simone," Johnson said of her 16-year-old daughter, who says she has already expressed an interest in starting a career in Hollywood.
"Naturally, the concerns are there," he added, referring to the recent and widespread sexual harassment scandal in the industry. "We've had this conversation before with her because … it's so frequent.
"In short, we are proud of the brave women who have stepped forward, and they really created this turning point," Johnson told T.J. of ABC News. Holmes. "I have worries, I'm his father, and I'll always have concerns with her, period."
Before the conversation made headlines that left Hollywood, Johnson sat down with Holmes to talk about his long-awaited new movie, "Jumanji: Welcome to the jungle."

"I never had the privilege of having a movie at Christmas," Johnson said. "When a Christmas movie comes out, I think you have a responsibility, make sure it's good."
Johnson said the new "Jumanji" movie was especially close to his heart because it was filmed in Hawaii, a place where he spent years growing up.
