  • -My first guest is a talented actress

  • who stars in the new movie, "Our Friend,"

  • which is in theaters and On Demand this Friday.

  • Here she is, Dakota Johnson!

  • Hi, Dakota! -Hi.

  • -Thank you so much for being on the show.

  • -Thanks for having me. -You look great.

  • I haven't seen you in a while, so we have a lot to catch up on.

  • First things first, last March you gave a tour

  • to "Architectural Digest," and the Internet loved it.

  • I loved it, too. It was just --

  • People were fascinated with your green kitchen

  • and your love of limes. -Yes.

  • -During the tour,

  • you very clearly state that you love limes.

  • Take a look at this video.

  • -I love limes. I love them.

  • -Yeah. Now what do you do with all those limes?

  • -I actually didn't even know that they were in there.

  • I was giving the tour and went into the kitchen,

  • and it was set dressing.

  • I'm actually -- I'm allergic to limes.

  • -Oh, my -- Stop it, now.

  • -[ Chuckles ] Yeah, I'm mildly allergic.

  • And honeydew melon, so another green thing from the outside.

  • -You're good with the honeydew melon.

  • -Oh, no, and the inside.

  • [ Both laugh ] -You can't just --

  • No one eats the outside of a honeydew melon.

  • -It's kind of beige, and then the inside is green.

  • -Yes. Correct. Yes.

  • I wouldn't eat the outside.

  • -It makes my tongue itch.

  • -But limes do the same thing?

  • -Um, kind of.

  • Limes make my tongue itch, too, yeah.

  • -Really? -Yeah.

  • -That's so bizarre. I mean, you had a lot of --

  • So, it was just set dressing, and it looked pretty,

  • and then you were like, "Yeah, I love limes."

  • You're just talking, going with the flow.

  • -Yeah, because it was hard to just ignore them,

  • so I just lied.

  • Just lied. [ Both laugh ]

  • I went the full opposite direction.

  • -Unbelievable.

  • I'm glad you came clean, man. -[ Laughs ]

  • -I know that you've also been working on projects.

  • Your production company, TeaTime Pictures, I love that.

  • How's it going?

  • -TeaTime is going really well.

  • We are actually gonna shoot our first movie

  • that we're producing, starting February 1st.

  • And Tig Notaro, who you love, and who I love...

  • -I love Tig! -...and Stephanie Allynne --

  • they are married -- are directing together.

  • -No way!

  • Oh, I love them. What's it called?

  • -We're in a very heated debate about the title at the moment,

  • so it has no title. [ Laughs ]

  • -"Lime Time" or "Honeydew"?

  • -"Honeydew" is not bad. I would watch that movie.

  • -I'd see "Honeydew." -I'd see "Honeydew."

  • Has nothing to do with the movie.

  • -Yeah, no, I'd have to read the script first.

  • But I'm sure Tig will -- She'll have a good title.

  • -Yeah, I'm excited. It's gonna be fun and funny.

  • And it's, like, really contained and short

  • and in L.A., and it'll be -- it'll be cool.

  • And then we make these lists every month --

  • Well, now, we used to do it weekly of,

  • like, top 10 lists of what's the best to watch,

  • because I get -- I don't know about you,

  • but I get really overwhelmed with kind of content overload

  • of like "What -- What am I supposed to watch

  • on all of the platforms with all of the amazing shows?"

  • -There's too many good shows. -We kind of comb through them.

  • -And then, I also heard that you're into music playlists.

  • What do you make playlists for?

  • -Everything. I make them for, like,

  • certain times of the year or certain moods

  • or road trips or dinner parties. -Yeah, dinner parties.

  • -Movies -- I do it a lot for characters and things.

  • -Like, if you and I were to go on a road trip,

  • what kind of music would you put on for us?

  • -Well, what's the vibe in our car?

  • -Fun, hittin' the road.

  • You're driving. Um...

  • -I'm driving? -I think so, yeah.

  • Do you want to be passenger seat?

  • -Well, are we, like -- Is it, like, high energy?

  • Does it have an arc? Does it go, like,

  • we start out, maybe we do --

  • Maybe it starts with "By Your Side," by Sade,

  • because I'm sitting next to you, by your side, in the car.

  • And then we're kind of groovin'.

  • And then, maybe it gets really upbeat halfway through,

  • because we're bored, and it's a road trip.

  • -I could see us -- -And then we get in a fight.

  • And then it goes to, like, Philip Glass.

  • -Yep. We get in a little tiff.

  • -Rolling hills. -We get in a tiff.

  • But then we have to go, like, to the restroom.

  • We get a snack, get our blood sugar back up.

  • And then we make up again. -Yeah, when we stop for a snack

  • and you go to the restroom, then it's,

  • "Waiting on a Friend," by the Stones.

  • -I was thinking at one point, do we sing

  • "Hit the Road, Jack" and really get into it

  • and, like, fake lip-sync and, like, laugh and stuff?

  • Wait. Now I'm driving.

  • -Oh, yeah, well...

  • -Don't worry about it. I'll drive.

  • -That's what the fight was,

  • because you're a back-seat driver so then you take over.

  • 'Cause I don't like fighting. -No, I don't like fighting,

  • but, you know, I'm not even a back-seat driver,

  • but it's either go with the GPS or don't go with the GPS.

  • I can't be watching you going like, "What?

  • What do you mean make a right? I would never make a right."

  • I go, "Yeah, then turn it off." Just go your way.

  • -Got it. Got it. But if we go like --

  • Hit the road, Jack, and don't you come back

  • -Where are we going? -Then you go like...

  • That's rightIt's like that.

  • And we start choreographing a thing to it.

  • Maybe you have a kerchief.

  • -Probably, yeah, 'cause we're in a convertible.

  • -Now we're talking. -Yeah.

  • -You know we're definitely in a convertible.

  • -Where are we going? -I think we're just touring,

  • like, those weird things that you can see, like, on Route 66,

  • like, World's Biggest Ball of Yarn, stuff like that.

  • -Okay, yeah.

  • -Just for like for some Instagram photos to post.

  • -My kind of road. -This sounds fun.

  • I like starting with Sade, by the way, that's my jam.

  • "By Your Side." That's my one.

  • -Great song. -Oh, God, right now --

  • -I'll make you a playlist. -You will?

  • -Yeah. -I'd love one.

  • Hey, I want to talk about your new movie.

  • -Okay. -It's called "Our Friend."

  • -Yeah. -It's based on a true story.

  • For anyone who doesn't know it, can you set it up?

  • -Yes. It's based on a true story of a couple who, the wife --

  • the woman has terminal cancer.

  • And their best friend moves in and sort of takes care of them.

  • And throughout this, this story, like tumbling over the years,

  • it's about, like, immense friendship

  • and pain and torture and, like, tragedy,

  • but also humor and levity and love

  • and most of all just compassion.

  • -You do a great job in the movie.

  • We even get to hear you sing a little bit.

  • I don't think we've heard you sing before, right?

  • How was that experience? -No.

  • That was so scary.

  • I actually had -- I have a little bit of stage fright.

  • Like, I -- When I come on your show,

  • I get really nervous,

  • and I laugh and then cry most of the time.

  • -[ Laughs ] You've cried.

  • Yeah, you've cried a couple times, yes.

  • -I've cried a couple times, which that's fine.

  • I'm used to it by now, but singing in front of people

  • is actually so terrifying for me.

  • And we had to shoot the scene where you don't even

  • really see me, the camera's, like, in the back of a --

  • like, you can't even really tell what's going on,

  • and I was meant to be performing in, like, community theater.

  • And they hit playback of my voice --

  • my vocal recording and called "action," and my --

  • it was like I had a panic attack that manifested in all the ways

  • that it does, that it can,

  • so, like, I just took off running.

  • Running, like around the theater, around backstage.

  • I was running around, and then just started

  • laughing hysterically, and everyone on the crew's like,

  • "What's she doing?"

  • Running around, laughing, and then just stopped moving

  • and started crying. -Yeah.

  • Just complete -- Just embarrassment?

  • Or you spun yourself out?

  • -I just, like, got -- I don't know.

  • It took over. I got so scared.

  • It was like extreme flight mode.

  • -Gosh. For the scene --

  • Were you doing something from a play, right?

  • Was it "Checkers" or something? -Yes.

  • -That was the scene? [ Both laugh ]

  • -Yeah, you know that really famous musical, "Checkers"?

  • -Yeah, of course, the famous musical, "Checkers."

  • But that was -- Ah, come on, that was so fun.

  • Well, you're great in it. I want to show everyone a clip.

  • Here's Dakota Johnson in "Our Friend."

  • Take a look.

  • -I'd like to be blonde.

  • No, I, um...

  • I want to have blue hair. [ Chuckles ]

  • And I also want to go to New York one last time

  • and see "Les Mis."

  • And, um...

  • Mardi Gras. I want to be a grand marshal.

  • And, um...

  • I want to sing on stage with Katy Perry.

  • -Dakota Johnson. "Our Friend" is in theaters

  • and On Demand this Friday.

  • When we come back, Dakota is going to settle

  • some of the biggest debates of all time.

  • Stick around.
