Dakota Johnson opened up about her panic attack during the filming of her forthcoming movie, Our Friend. She admitted that she was suffering from ‘stage fright’ as she had to film her first singing scene.
The actress admitted to clamming up when the cameras started rolling. She shared how terrifying it is to sing in front of people. On her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, she said they had to shoot the scene where you cannot really see her.
“Singing in front of people is actually so terrifying for me,” she said Tuesday on “The Tonight Show” (via Daily Mail), “and we had to shoot the scene where you don’t even really see me.” She revealed how her panic attack began as soon as the director shouted “action”. The Fifty Shades of Grey actress shared how this made her run from the cameras and around the community theatre where they had been filming.
Dakota explained that she was running around and started laughing hysterically and everyone on the crew was wondering what she was doing. She recalled, “I was running around, and then just started laughing hysterically; and everyone on the crew’s like, ‘What’s she doing?’ Running around, laughing, and then just stopped moving and started crying. It was like extreme flight mode.”
For the scene, she had to perform in a community theatre production. “They hit playback of my vocal recording and called action. It was like I had a panic attack that manifested in all the ways that it does, that it can,” the actress recalled.
Dakota Settles It With Jimmy Fallon
Our Friend revolves around a couple Nicole played by Dakota and Matt Teague played by Casey Affleck. It follows them as they cope with Nicole’s terminal cancer diagnosis. The movie also features Jason Segel.
Even during her interview, Dakota was seen wearing the emerald ring she was first seen wearing back in December. She raised a lot of eyebrows as rumors of her getting engaged to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin started doing the rounds. The couple has been on-and-off for two years.
Between the interview, she also brought back the viral debate of the January 2019 episode of The Tonight Show. The actress gave her take on the dress which confused many. She said it is white and gold but it also looks blue and gold.
Back in February 2015, Catlin McNeill had sent the internet into a complete divide; as she uploaded a photo of a dress to Tumblr and making it a public plea. She asked for help to find the color of the dress and asked if it is white and gold or blue and black.
Users were divided as some celebrities were also divided. Taylor Swift had tweeted the outfit was blue and black meanwhile, Reese Witherspoon said it was clearly white and gold. But eventually, the world got its answer: the dress was in fact blue and black.
Dakota also addressed whether she was Team Edward or Team Jacob when it comes to Twilight. She said she was team Edward and she also settled if Jack could have fit on that door with Rose in Titanic. The actress thought that would have been possible.
The High Note alum was also asked; whether Ross and Rachel were on a break in Friends as she said they were. Still, there were some debates Johnson wasn’t willing to settle; including whether she preferred Game of Thrones or The Lord of the Rings.
