Dakota Johnson Plays Pop Quiz With Marie Claire

Dakota Johnson, Marie Claire's summer cover star, plays a game of Pop Quiz and answers random questions about herself. Watch the video here.

Dakota Johnson is Marie Claire's summer 2020 cover star (opens in new tab), and she knows exactly what she wants. In the issue, she discusses her upcoming film, The High Note, and why she carefully chooses every project she works on.

“For a long time, I’d do a movie and have no say,” she tells  (opens in new tab)Marie Claire (opens in new tab). “I could go into something, and it’ll be one thing, and then it comes out as a totally different thing. As an artist, you’re like, ‘What the fuck?’ I definitely want to have my craft, my artistry, and my ideas respected and tossed around. I want to be part of the process.” She continues, “I also have really specific taste.”

That specific taste is visible in Johnson's episode of Pop Quiz, where MC asks cover stars to answer questions about themselves. During the game, Johnson reveals the movies that make her cry, the best gift she's ever received (it has to do with her 30th birthday), the last book she's read, and the unexpected word that makes her cringe (hint: It's not moist).
