Way back in March of 2020, Architectural Digest dropped one of their celebrity house tour videos starring Dakota Johnson. Her house was actually pretty cool. Lots of bookshelves, wood, art, plants, and… huge bowls of limes? Dakota explained, “I love limes, I love them. They’re great and I love them so much. And I like to present them like this in my house.” But last night, during a Tonight Show interview with Jimmy Fallon, Dakota admitted the truth… the limes were added by a set dresser. She actually doesn’t love limes. In fact, she’s allergic. Dakooota! You were supposed to be a warrior for the truth!
Dakota told Jimmy (via The Takeout):
“I actually didn’t even know that they were in there,” she said. “It was set dressing. I’m actually allergic to limes… mildly allergic. And honeydew melon… Limes make my tongue itch.”
When Fallon asked why, then, she had made such a show of the limes on her house tour, Johnson said, “It was hard to just ignore them, so I lied.”
Here’s the interview, which Dakota squeezed in right before bath time:
And here’s the original video:
Hmmm, is Dakota “mildly allergic”? Or is the zesty zing of limes simply too exciting for her clearly vanilla tastes? Case in point: her maybe fiancé Chris Martin.
