Dakota Johnson explained why her time in The office It wasn’t the dream job I had been waiting for.
Before Fifty Shades of Grey The films launched her to world fame, Dakota, as a many other famous actors — had the opportunity to appear as a guest star on The office.
Despite being a huge fan of the show at the time, Dakota candidly revealed during a recent appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers that his time at Dunder Mifflin was quite miserable.
“Honestly, that was the worst moment of my life,” she told the host, before explaining how the guest role came about.
“I loved that show,” he said. “They said to me, ‘Do you want to be in the series finale?'”
Dakota recalled that she had enthusiastically accepted the offer thinking she would “show up like half a day” and have a fun time. However, it ended up being a lot more work than she expected.
“I was there for two weeks,” he said, “and I’m barely in the fucking program.”
Aside from her limited screen time, Dakota also recalled that the vibes on set were also very awkward, revealing that some of the cast members weren’t even talking to each other at this point in the show.
“There was a strange dynamic that had been going on for the last 10 years. Some people didn’t speak to each other,” he recalls, without naming names.
“And I walk in like, ‘I’m so excited to be here!’ And no one wanted to talk to me. Nobody gave a damn,” he added. “I was like in the background of all these scenes, faxing things.”
In an attempt to make her feel better, Seth, who also appeared briefly in the final episode of The office – chimed in to praise his faxing skills, describing it as “one of the most credible faxes I’ve ever seen.”
Dakota’s recent admission about The office comes as another candid confession on the press tour for his new film, Mrs. Webbwhich hits theaters on February 14.
In addition to admitting that she didn’t know if the movie “would be any good” while she was filming it, Dakota recently weighed in on the never-ending debate about “nepo babies“In Hollywood.
“When that started, I found it incredibly annoying and boring.” saying the actor, whose parents are Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. “If you are a journalist, write about something else. “That’s just boring.”
In another interview with The officialalso recalled her viral interview with Ellen DeGeneres in 2019, where she exposed the host for apparently lying about not receiving an invitation to her 30th birthday party by saying on air, “That’s not the truth, Ellen.”
Of the infamous exchange, he said: “It’s going to haunt me.”
It’s still real, Dakota.
