Drew Barrymore Praises Dakota Johnson For Handling An Awkward Interview With Ellen DeGeneres

Dakota Johnson received high praise from Drew Barrymore for the way she handled a viral appearance in 2019 on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

The “Fifty Shades” actress, 32, was on Thursday’s broadcast of “The Drew Barrymore Show” and was asked about her now-infamous feud with DeGeneres, who vehemently claimed she wasn’t invited to Johnson’s 30th birthday.

During the “Drew’s News” segment, Barrymore, 46, asked Johnson about some of the famous people she has the pleasure of calling neighbors — who Johnson said lives next door to Jimmy Kimmel.

While Johnson said the host and his wife are “great neighbors,” she joked that “they have a lot of parties and don’t invite me.”

“Is this for real?” Barrymore asked before appearing to refer to Johnson’s back and forth with DeGeneres. “Because people got in trouble for claiming they weren’t invited to your parties.”

DeGeneres was steadfast in her claim that she hadn’t received an invitation to a birthday party from Johnson, though she still wanted to know how well the shindig had gone.

“Actually, no, that’s not the truth, Ellen. You were invited,” Johnson replied to DeGeneres at the time. “Last time I was on the show last year, you gave me a lot of s— about not inviting you, but I didn’t even know you wanted to be invited. I didn’t even know you liked me! “
