Dakota Johnson has spoken out about cancel culture and recent allegations against former co-stars.
The actress has starred alongside actors who have been scrutinised for recent controversies, including Shia LaBeouf, Johnny Depp, and Armie Hammer.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she discusses that she has never had those experiences with the aforementioned actors.
“I never experienced that firsthand from any of those people,” Johnson said. “I had an incredible time working with them; I feel sad for the loss of great artists.”
“I feel sad for people needing help and perhaps not getting it in time. I feel sad for anyone who was harmed or hurt. It’s just really sad.”
She goes on to say that she believes people can change.
“I do believe that people can change. I want to believe in the power of a human being to change and evolve and get help and help other people. I think there’s definitely a major overcorrection happening. But I do believe that there’s a way for the pendulum to find the middle.”
“But, yeah, cancel culture is such a fucking downer. I hate that term,” she concludes.
LaBeouf and Depp have been accused of abuse by former partners, and Hammer is facing sexual assault allegations.
