On Wednesday, January 19, Johnson made another iconic talk show appearance, this time on The Late Late Show With James Corden. For the appearance, Johnson wore a red mini dress with long sleeves, and it’s…very mini. And she paired the dress with red high heels.
At the beginning of the interview—which also included actor Josh Gad—Johnson is trying to sit in a comfortable position on the couch. She crosses her legs, positioning her hands to cover herself where her skirt rides up. Corden notices she’s a bit uncomfortable and asks, “Are you good?… Are you alright? Are you worried?… Do you want my jacket?”
To this, Dakota Johnson had the most Dakota Johnson answer Dakota Johnson could have. “I’m okay. It’s nothing nobody hasn’t already seen,” she replied. This is, of course, a reference to her role as Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey film series, in which she had many sex scenes and much nudity.
After having a little laugh, the interview resumed as usual. Corden asked Johnson how she feels about her parents, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, posting photos of her as a child on social media.
“No, I don’t like it,” Johnson said. “But I also don’t go on social media so I don’t find out about it until it’s like really baked into the internet. And somebody will send it to me like, ‘Oh, you were so ugly!’ or ‘You were so cute when you had braces and a slicked-back ponytail.’”
When she finds out, Johnson says, she reverts back to being a 12-year-old. “I’m like, ‘Mum, you can’t do that! We’ve had this conversation so many times!’ She doesn’t care.”
