Dakota Johnson has reportedly termed the internet ‘a wild place’ after a video of her from 2015, looking at Johnny Depp’s severed finger had gone viral. She has finally issued her take on the viral video and pointed out that she has no recollection of the interaction.
In the said viral video, Dakota Johnson, according to fan theories, noticed the actor's injured finger during a press event for her and Johnny's film Black Mass (2015). Meanwhile, the old video resurfaced on social media during his defamation trial against Amber Heard.
The video featured Johnny placing his hand on the table, Dakota touching one of his fingers, and then leaning in to talk to him. Considering Johnny and his sense of humour, the actor seemingly made a comment after which both of them could be seen laughing. Johnny then turned to the media with a serious expression on his face, while Dakota continued to look his way with a smile.
In one of the claims made by Johnny Depp, during the defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard, said she had severed the tip of his finger with a vodka bottle during an argument that took place just a few months after their wedding in February 2015.
Coming back to Dakota’s viral video, in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, the actress added she couldn’t believe it when her name cropped up on social media during the trial, though Johnny’s legal team had decided to keep her away from the courtroom.
She said, “I was like, ‘For the love of God, why? Why am I involved in this?’ I don’t remember that at all, but please, take me out of this. Don’t let this go further. Can you imagine, oh, my God, if I was called to the witness stand?”
During her interview, Johnny and Amber's court trial was still underway, and she even expressed her astonishment over the way Depp and Heard’s defamation trial was being televised and it was avaliable for everyone like a show.
She said, “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 f***ing weird. The internet is a wild, wild place.”
The jury ruled out in favour of Johnny in his defamation trial against Amber on June 2. The court has ordered Amber Heard to pay Johnny $10.35 million, and Johnny to pay her $2 million.
