Dakota Johnson responded to a video of her and Johnny Depp that went viral during his defamation trial.
“I was like, ‘For the love of God, why? Why am I involved in this?'” Johnson told Vanity Fair.
The 2015 clip shows Johnson reacting to Depp’s bandaged middle finger during a press conference.
Dakota Johnson responded to an old video clip of a conversation between her and Johnny Depp that went viral in recent months as Depp’s libel lawsuit against Amber Heard gained national attention.
The YouTube clip, titled “THE EXACT Moment Dakota Johnson KNEW Amber Heard Was Violent To Johnny Depp“, shows Johnson in 2015 reacting to Depp’s bandaged middle finger – an injury he claimed happened at the hands of Heard†
The video has been viewed 4.1 million times.
Johnson told Vanity Fair she watched the video†
“I thought, ‘Why am I out of love for God? Why am I involved in this?'” she told Vanity Fair of the video that went viral during Depp’s trial.
“I don’t remember that at all, but please get me out of here,” she added. “Don’t let this go any further. Can you imagine, O my God, that I should be called to the witness stand?
“I can’t believe people are watching [the trial] like it’s a show. It’s like it’s a courtroom drama and it breaks my heart. It’s so, so, so crazy. People are so damn weird. The internet is a wild, wild place.”
She then acknowledged that she was wary of cancellation culture and said she had things she would never say publicly because of the risk to her career.
“What I struggle with in terms of cancel culture is the term cancel culture – the whole concept behind canceling a human being, as if it were a deal. Nobody will make mistakes in their life. The point of life is to figure it out,” she told Vanity Fair.
“Harming other people, hurting other people is not okay,” she added. “There are consequences to those actions. But the concept of the Twitterverse deciding if someone suddenly no longer exists is horrific, heartbreaking and wrong. I really think it will pass.
“I believe people eventually want to live in a better world. Twitter also makes up about 12 percent of the world? I mean, some of these people can’t even spell.”
The “50 Shades of Grey” star also reflected on her previous work in the Vanity Fair video.
Johnson remembered securing a spot in the series finale of “The Office” in 2013, all because she was a fan of the hit comedy.
“I’m in it for about three minutes and I was on that set for two weeks,” the actress recalled. “I was there every day, all day. But I met Rainn Wilson and now I always see him on planes.”
She added: “I felt like I was ruining someone’s birthday party when they really didn’t want to invite me, like they were doing it to say ‘Yeah sure, come!’ And then I was stuck there.”
The actress too weighed in on her role as Anastasia Steele in the steamy movies of “50 Shades”called her “psychotic,” but revealed she didn’t regret starring in the dramas.
