Dakota Johnson nearly flashed the entire People’s Choice Awards audience (and thousands of viewers!) while accepting an award from Leslie Mann! Luckily, she saved herself from the malfunction AND made a witty joke to go along with the awkward situation right there on stage.
Dakota Johnson, 26, may have won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress at the 2016 show, but she showed her comedic side while hitting the stage to accept her trophy! After a near-disastrous wardrobe malfunction, the 26-year-old joked about her lack of clothing in Fifty Shades of Grey — and it all happened right on the spot!
Things could’ve gone REALLY wrong when presenter Leslie Mann accidentally broke the back of Dakota’s dress as she gave her a hug before handing over the trophy! Yikes! Jamie Dornan’s co-star looked totally caught off-guard at first, and awkwardly held the back of her gown closed while informing the audience what happened.
But once she got everything back in place and felt more comfortable, she made sure the audience could get a laugh out of it. “Oh well, it’s not like all of you haven’t seen my boobs already anyway!” she joked, before heading into her list of thank you’s. LOL, great on-the-spot wittiness, Dakota — we dig it! And we can’t really blame Leslie for accidentally breaking the dress…she did joke that she had been drinking “a lot” before the show. Whoops! We have a feeling Dakota probably forgave her…
Of course, the actress’ joke was referring to how she spends a LOT of the hit movie Fifty Shades of Grey totally topless, with her boobs visible for the world to see. And there’ll be a lot more where that came from, too, because Dakota is set to reprise her role in the franchise’s sequels! The next film, Fifty Shades Darker, is set to hit theaters in Feb. 2017 — we’ll be patiently waiting. And in the meantime, maybe Dakota should film a comedy!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Dakota’s near-wardrobe malfunction?! And how about that quick, witty save?
