Dakota Johnson’s latest movie, The Lost Daughter, is directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal and it was a star-packed premiere. And amongst the stars was Dakota’s father, Don Johnson. However, due to a Covid-19 test, Don was asked to leave the premiere even before he could find his seat.
Why was Don Johnson asked to leave?
In a recent interview with Andy Cohen, Johnson explained what happened the evening of the movie premiere. According to him, everyone had to arrive 30 minutes early to be tested for Covid-19.
From there, Johnson and his wife were escorted into the theatre to sit down. However, only a few minutes later, they were interrupted by a man asking if Johnson could “step outside”.
“So I walk in, I have my popcorn with Kelly, my wife is with me and we go in and we sit down, I’m eating popcorn, I’m talking to, you know, a few people and so on and so forth. And the dude comes in and he says, ‘Mr. Johnson, could you step outside, I want to talk to you.’”
Johnson insists, however, that the man can say what he needs to right there.
“He leans down and whispers in my ear ‘you tested positive.’”
Johnson refused to believe that he tested positive and immediately gets his assistant to call for a second opinion. And even though his test was a false positive, he still missed Dakota’s movie.
“And of course, it was a false positive, but the movie it was too late. I couldn’t see the movie, so I am dying to see the movie, but I’m still happy to be COVID free.”
What is The Lost Daughter about?
The Lost Daughter takes place on a Mediterranean island where Leda (Olivia Colman), a university professor, is on holiday by herself. However, she becomes obsessed with another woman (Dakota Johnson) and her daughter as they prompt unsettling memories of her own early motherhood.
