Dakota Johnson thinks the cancellation culture is “terribly sad.” I hate this term. “
The Fifty Shades of Gray star answered a recent Hollywood Reporter question about combat-ready actors she has worked with in the past, including Armie Hammer on The Social Network, Shia LaBeouf in The Peanut Butter Falcon, and Johnny Depp in Black Mass. “. All three were accused of misconduct of varying degrees by their former partners.
“I’ve never experienced it myself from any of these people,” she told a sales agency. “I had a great time working with them; I am sad about the loss of great artists. I feel sad about people who need help and may not get it on time. I am sad for everyone who has suffered or suffered. It’s just really sad. “
She’s also saddened by how far #MeToo and the cancellation culture have come.
“I think there is definitely a major overcorrection going on,” she told THR. “But I believe the pendulum can find the middle.”
Hammer, LaBeouf, and Depp’s allegations of misconduct have jeopardized their careers. Of these three projects, only Hammer has projects: Kenneth Branagh’s film Death on the Nile will release on February 11, and Taika Waititi’s soccer comedy Win the Next Goal is listed as a 2022 release date, according to IMDb. …
Depp faced charges of physical abuse from ex-wife Amber Heard. LaBeouf faces a civil lawsuit in which ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs accused him of physical abuse, sexual assault, including intentionally infecting her through sexual contact, and verbal and emotional abuse. Hammer has reportedly been in rehab for drug, alcohol and sex addiction since late May, a couple of months after he was charged with sexual harassment and rape.
All three denied or contested the charges.
“I believe people can change,” Johnson said. “I want to believe in a person’s ability to change and develop, to receive help and help other people.”
However, 32-year-old daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson believes that change in the entertainment industry should go far beyond a simple call for sexual misconduct.
Studios have “outdated thinking” about what films should be made, who should be filmed, what equality and diversity looks like, and how much people should pay, she said.
“Sometimes,” Johnson said, “the old school needs to be moved in order for a new one to appear.”
