Dakota Johnson made her "Ellen" debut on Friday to talk about her upcoming film,"Black Mass," but as is the case with many talk-show hosts and interviewers, Ellen DeGeneres just couldn't help but bring up "Fifty Shades of Grey."
In a charmingly awkward way, Johnson answered DeGeneres' questions while maintaining a sense of humor about her role in the sexual fantasy film.When asked if people act "weird" around the actress, Johnson admitted, “Sometimes people just say things that are little bit awkward for me.”
She went on to recall an interesting encounter with a cab driver -- judging by the accent she put on, it took place in New York -- who told her he'd watched her film with his wife.
"He’s like, ‘We really liked it.’ I was like, ‘Thank you very much.’ And he was like, ‘I thought there could be more sex,'" she said, deadpan. "And I was about to roll out of the car as he was driving.”
But the best part of Johnson's appearance on the show was when she reluctantly accepted the host's gifts: a collection of "Ellen blue" sex toys, including a flogger, a crop and rhinestone-encrusted handcuffs. Now she'll always be reminded of Ellen while in the act with her "Fifty Shades" co-star, Jamie Dornan.
