Dakota Johnson reacts to a clip of her conversation with Johnny Depp that went viral during his trial with Amber Heard: ‘Please, take me out of this’

  • Dakota Johnson reacted to a video of her and Johnny Depp that went viral amid 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 at a press conference. 

Dakota Johnson reacted to an old video clip of a conversation between her and Johnny Depp that went viral in recent months as Depp’s defamation trial against Amber Heard gained national attention. 

The YouTube clip, titled “The EXACT moment Dakota Johnson KNEW Amber Heard was VIOLENT towards Johnny Depp,” shows Johnson in 2015 reacting to Depp’s bandaged middle finger — an injury he alleged happened at the hands of Heard.

The video has racked up 4.1 million views. 

Johnson told Vanity Fair she watched the video.

“I was like, ‘For the love of God, why? Why am I involved in this?'” she told Vanity Fair of the video going viral during Depp’s trial.

“I don’t remember that at all, but please, take me out of this,” she added. “Don’t let this go further. Can you imagine, oh, my God, if I was called to the witness stand?

“I can’t believe that people are watching [the trial] like it’s a show. It’s like it’s a courtroom drama and my heart breaks. It’s so, so, so crazy. Humans are so fucking weird. The internet is a wild, wild place.”

She then acknowledged that she was wary of cancel 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, like they’re an appointment. No person will not make mistakes in their life. The point of being alive is figuring it out,” she told Vanity Fair.

“Hurting other people, harming other people is not okay,” she added. “There are consequences for those actions. But the concept of the Twitterverse deciding if someone just all of a sudden doesn’t exist anymore is horrifying, heartbreaking, and wrong. I do think that it will pass.

“I believe that people want to live in a better world, ultimately. Also, Twitter makes up like, what, 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 past work in the video with Vanity Fair. 

Johnson recalled securing a spot on the series finale of “The Office” in 2013, all because she was a fan of the hit comedy. 

“I’m in it for like, three minutes and I spent two weeks on that set,” the actress remembered. “I was there every day, all day. But I did meet Rainn Wilson and now I always run into him on planes.”

She added: “I felt like I was crashing someone’s birthday party when they actually didn’t mean to invite me, like they did it just to be like ‘Yeah sure, come!’ And then I was stuck there.”

The actress also weighed in on her role as Anastasia Steele in the steamy “50 Shades” films, calling them “psychotic” but revealing that she doesn’t regret starring in the dramas.
