Amid the internet frenzy that constantly surrounded anything said or done during the Johnny Depp versus Amber Heard defamation trial, old footage of Dakota Johnson and Depp from 2015 resurfaced online, going viral in no time. Now, the Fifty Shades of Grey actress has addressed the clip, leaving many netizens shocked by what it truly captured.

By now, you’re probably aware of the fact that in court, Depp claimed that his ex-wife severed his finger with a vodka bottle during an argument, only a few months after their wedding in February 2015. Well, in the said viral video, shared numerous times on TikTok and other social media platforms, many Depp supporters alleged that Johnson was looking at the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s injury while on a media run of the crime drama film Black Mass, which both actors starred in.

Until now, Johnson had never addressed the footage. But in an interview with Vanity Fair, she finally spoke out. “I was like, ‘For the love of God, why? Why am I involved in this?’” she said while shaking her head.

Johnson even went on to state that she had no recollection of the moment and didn’t want to be involved in the story in any way. “I don’t remember that at all, but please, take me out of this,” she continued. “Don’t let this go further. Can you imagine, oh, my God, if I was called to the witness stand?”

The actress, who is soon set to star in a film adaptation of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, then expressed her bewilderment at the way the trial was available “like a show.” It should be noted that at the time of the interview, the trial had not yet concluded.

“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,” she shared, adding, “Humans are so fucking weird. The internet is a wild, wild place.”
