Dakota Johnson admits she suffered a panic attack while preparing for her first singing scene on the set of forthcoming film Our Friend.
The actress, 31, made the surprise admission while appearing remotely on the latest installment of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday evening.
‘That was so scary,’ Dakota told Jimmy, 46, while also admitted to suffering a ‘little bit’ of ‘stage fright’ ahead of the scene.
‘Singing in front of people is actually so terrifying for me,’ she added. ‘And we had to shoot the scene where you don’t even really see me.
‘The camera’s in the back of… you can’t even really tell what’s going on, and I was meant to be performing in community theater. And they hit playback of my voice, my vocal recording, and called “Action”‘.
‘And it was like I had a panic attack that manifested in all the ways that it does, that it can, so, like, I just took off running. Running, like around the theater, around backstage.
‘I was running around, and then just started laughing hysterically, and everyone on the crew’s like, ‘What’s she doing?” Running around, laughing and then just stopped moving and started crying. It was like extreme flight mode.’
