What did Dakota Johnson say about her parents?
While she has an official Instagram account, Dakota Johnson admits she is not one to use social media often.
Her parents, however, remain active on the internet and often post photos and videos – sometimes of Dakota.
On January 19, 2022, Dakota appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
“I don’t like it, but I also don’t go on social media, so I don’t find out about it until it’s 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,'” Dakota said when James asked about her parents uploading baby pictures online.
“I become like a 12-year-old and I’m like, ‘Mom, you can’t do that. We’ve had this conversation so many times!’,” the actress added.
“She doesn’t care.”
