Dakota Johnson is the cover star of Marie Claire US Summer 2020 issue, on newsstands May 28th.
Johnson is gearing up for the release of her latest film, The High Note, in which she co-stars alongside Tracee Ellis Ross. Here for her #MarieClaire cover story, the 30-year-old actress best known for the Fifty Shades franchise, opens up about her battles with depression, finding her voice and standing up for her ideas, and what she loves about making films.
The High Note debuts Friday, May 29th and will be available on nearly all on-demand platforms including – Amazon, Apple, Comcast, DirecTV, Fandango, Google/YouTube, Charter/Spectrum, Verizon, Microsoft, Dish, Sony, Cox, Altice, and Vudu.
On what Johnson wanted to portray with her character Maggie in The High Note: “Maggie is so emotional and so open, but I didn’t want her to get totally blown over by the wind. I think, especially for women, it’s such a hustle all the time. Maggie’s vulnerable, but it never stops her from going for the thing that is the most important to her.”
On coping with depression: “I’ve struggled with depression since I was young—since I was 15 or 14. That was when, with the help of professionals, I was like, Oh, this is a thing I can fall into. But I’ve learned to find it beautiful because I feel the world. I guess I have a lot of complexities, but they don’t pour out of me. I don’t make it anyone else’s problem.”
On standing up for herself and her ideas: “For a long time, I’d do a movie and have no say. I could go into something, and it’ll be one thing, and then it comes out as a totally different thing. As an artist, you’re like, ‘What the fuck?’”
On what she loves about making films: “There’s something really nice about making something that makes people just feel good and get out of their lives for a second and maybe think, Oh, my dreams could be not dreams, they could be …” Images courtesy of Marie Claire. (source)
