Dakota Johnson Keeps Getting Skunked: "This Was the Fourth Time in a Year"
With four films in 2018, life should smell like roses for Dakota Johnson — but she woke up Jan. 7 at her home in the Hollywood Hills to find a "skunk situation." It's become an epidemic.
"This was the fourth time in a year, so I've been having to deal with that," she says with a laugh. "I was trying to figure out what the source of the smell was and thank God, it was someone else's dog, not mine."
Johnson, who walked the red carpet at the Golden Globes with "brilliant" Call Me by Your Name director Luca Guadagnino (who directed her in A Bigger Splash and the upcoming Suspiria), also used that adjective when describing the HFPA's changing of the guard from Miss Golden Globe to Golden Globe Ambassador.
As a former Miss Golden Globe, Johnson said, "It's a small step forward, but it's a step forward. Anyone who wants to do that should have the opportunity to do so. Gender equality is fundamental."
