So why are people mad at Dakota Johnson over limes? As InStyle noted, in her house tour, Johnson was showing off her green kitchen and turned to the bowls of limes on the counter. “I love limes, I love them. They’re great. I love them so much and I like to present them like this in my house,” the star said. But that actually wasn’t true.
“I actually didn’t know that they were in there,” Johnson said when asked about the fruits that so nicely matched her kitchen on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Jan. 19, 2021. “I was giving the tour and went into the kitchen and… it was set dressing,” the actress said. “I’m actually allergic to limes. I’m mildly allergic to limes and honeydew melon.” Wait, what? A bewildered Jimmy Fallon asked Johnson if she was just “going with the flow.” She responded, “It was hard to just ignore them, so I just lied.”
Naturally, the internet lost it over Dakota Johnson so casually tricking us. “dakota johnson is the queen of chaos and i fully stan,” one Twitter user wrote. “Dakota Johnson selling her house and confessing she hates limes is the biggest plot twist of 2021,” wrote another. “Found out that the bowl of limes in dakota johnson’s kitchen was staged and now I’m having an identity crisis,” wrote a third.
We were green with envy over Dakota Johnson’s stunning home. Now we’re Fifty Shades of confused.
