The ‘Madame Web’ star’s year is off to a shaky start — literally
Dakota Johnson’s latest viral moment? Her reaction to an earthquake.
The Madame Web star — who has previously gone viral for awkward interviews, sleeping habits and her love of limes — is now making headlines for her reaction to an earthquake that hit Southern California last week.
While chatting with Entertainment Tonight in Los Angeles on Friday, the actress, 34, had a quintessentially Johnson way of responding to the 4.6-magnitude quake, which occurred mid-interview.
In a clip shared by the outlet, an interviewer asks if the shaking they just experienced was an earthquake, and Johnson’s jaw drops ever so slightly.
"Did you just do that?” someone off-screen asks the actress, who calmly jokes, “Did I?”
Seemingly unfazed, Johnson adds, “Do you like that we all just sat here? Fabulous.”
Unsure how to proceed after the seismic interruption, she jokes with the interviewer that they should just “continue, I guess.”
However, “there will be an aftershock,” the Fifty Shades alum notes matter-of-factly. “That was a big earthquake,” she notes. “Spooky!”

"Well, I feel like, you know, we live in California," Johnson told the outlet on the red carpet. "What are you gonna do? Freak out about an earthquake?"
She also pointed out that neither she nor the Friday interviewers did what experts advise in case of an earthquake, which is to drop and take cover.
"None of us did,” she said. "Nobody did that."
While Johnson joked about being able to cause an earthquake in real life during her ET interview, her Madame Web character — Cassandra, a.k.a. Madame Web herself — actually does have supernatural powers.
Speaking about the film in an exclusive clip shared by PEOPLE, Johnson said that "this film and this story catapults [Cassandra] into discovering her superpowers.”
Her character is "a paramedic in Manhattan who develops the power to see the future and realizes she can use that insight to change it,” per an official synopsis.
"Forced to confront revelations about her past, she forges a relationship with three young women bound for powerful destinies — if they can all survive a deadly present."
Madame Web, directed by S.J. Clarkson and costarring Sydney Sweeney, Mike Epps, Emma Roberts and Adam Scott, debuts in theaters on Wednesday, Feb. 14.
