Dakota Johnson Joked That She’s Excluded From The “Madame Web” Cast Group Chat Because She’s A Millennial Days After Admitting She Constantly Felt Like The “Oldest” Person While Filming

It comes just days after Dakota recalled how "no one wanted to talk" to her when she guest starred in the final episode of The Office.

Dakota Johnson has opened up about being excluded from the Madame Web cast group chat.

Last week, Dakota recalled what it was like working so closely with these three Gen Z actors on the film. Appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers, she joked that her costars “annoy” her — though made it clear that she absolutely loves them.

Dakota also added that she felt like the oldest person of the group “all the time” while filming with Sydney, Celeste, and Isabela, even though she’s “not that much” older than them.

Now, Dakota opened up further about the “sisterly dynamic” she shares with her Madame Web costars — and how their age gap has divided them a little.

Sitting down with E! News this week, Dakota said that she’s not in Sydney, Celeste, and Isabela’s group chat, joking that her being a millennial is “certainly” the reason why.

“I don't think they include me,” she quipped. “I’m older than them, and they make sure that I'm aware of that.”

Sydney, Celeste, and Isabela do in fact have a group chat named The Boo Crew, but made it known to E! that they have nothing but love and respect for Dakota.

Sydney said, “I’ve been a fan of hers since I was a lot younger,” before recalling the time she “snuck” into a screening of Dakota's R-rated film Fifty Shades of Grey when she was underage after her parents “didn't let” her watch it.

This all comes just days after Dakota recalled feeling excluded during another work stint, when she featured in The Office.

Dakota, who guest starred in the final episode of the fan-favorite sitcom, admitted that it was the “worst time” of her life during her recent appearance on Seth Meyers.

“There were weird dynamics that had been going on for the last 10 years. Some people didn’t speak to each other,” she said of the cast.

“And I’m coming in like, ‘So excited to be here!’ And no one wanted to talk to me. No one gave a fuck,” she added. “I was, like, in the background of all of these scenes, faxing things.”
