Ellen DeGeneres said she didn’t get an invitation to Dakota Johnson’s birthday party, and the actress had to fact check her
“You turned 30, how was the party? I wasn’t invited,” DeGeneres asked Johnson, whose birthday was on October 4, during an appearance on Wednesday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
In response, the “Peanut Butter Falcon” star told the host: “Actually no, that’s not true, Ellen. You were invited. Last time I was on the show, last year, you gave me a bunch of s— about not inviting you, but I didn’t even know you wanted to be invited.”
Johnson added that she didn’t know that DeGeneres liked her, and insisted that she gave the comedian a heads up this time around.
“I did invite you and you didn’t come,” the “Fifty Shades” star said.
DeGeneres went on to say, “I don’t think so,” then got clarification from a crew member who said that she couldn’t attend because she was “out of town.”
“Oh yeah, I had that thing,” DeGeneres said. “It was probably in Malibu. That’s too far for me to go to.”
The host finally admitted that she was in fact invited and thanked Johnson.
“I really didn’t remember that until just now,” she said.
During Johnson’s previous appearance on the show in October 2018, the subject of birthdays also came up.
At the time, Johnson had just celebrated her 29th birthday with a party that included pink and blue balloons, which led people to speculate that the celebration was a gender reveal party and that she was expecting a child with boyfriend Chris Martin.
Johnson cleared up the confusion on the show and recalled attending DeGeneres’ 60th birthday party in February 2018.
“I think I kind of crashed your birthday party,” she said.
“I was just arm candy,” she added, referring to her relationship with Martin, the front man of Coldplay.
In response, DeGeneres said: “I knew you’d be with him. I didn’t have your number at the time, which is why I invited him and I knew he’d bring you. But now I have your number and I’ll call you directly. And now you have my number, so you could have called to invite me.”
