Actress Dakota Johnson candidly shared her less-than-pleasant experience during her cameo on the NBC series finale of The Office in 2013. Despite being a huge fan of the show, Johnson expressed that the filming process was “honestly the worst time of my life.” Initially expecting a brief appearance, she ended up spending two weeks on set and felt barely included in the show.
During her appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers on February 8, Johnson revealed, “Some people didn’t speak to each other. No one wanted to talk to me. No one gave a f–k.” The actress highlighted “weird dynamics” that had persisted on the set for the past decade, making her time there uncomfortable.
The Office, which originally starred Steve Carell, John Krasinski, and Jenna Fischer, ran for nine seasons from 2005 to 2013. While Johnson’s experience wasn’t enjoyable, it didn’t diminish the show’s legacy.
Seth Meyers empathized with Johnson, attributing the challenges to The Office itself rather than her. He assured her, “Look, it’s the f-king office’s fault. It’s not your fault.” Johnson playfully agreed, stating, “It’s their fault.”
This isn’t the first time Johnson has been candid on a talk show, having previously addressed various topics, including her memorable interaction with Ellen DeGeneres and her experiences filming the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise. The actress remains known for her openness and authenticity in sharing her thoughts and experiences.
