It is a no-brainer that Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin make an adorable couple. The two have kept their relationship under wraps, but there have been instances when it was difficult to believe that the two were in love. After parting ways with ex-Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris was rumored to be dating Dakota in 2017, and the two have been going strong.
Both Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin are averse to talking about their relationship. In a rare instance, Chris referred to the actress as his partner during a podcast while talking about SubPacs in March 2023. Now, Dakota Johnson has referred to the Coldplay singer as a partner while talking about how her beau calms her down during hard times.
Dakota Johnson Shares An Anecdote Of Chris Martin Helping Her Through Difficult Times
In Hollywood, many actors have openly shared their struggles with mental health and how they have overcome it.
Dakota Johnson is one of them who has openly shared her story and has been an advocate for mental health awareness. Recently, she gave a moving speech at the 2023 Hope for Depression Research Foundation at The Plaza in New York City.
During Dakota Johnson’s speech, she shared an anecdote about how her partner, Chris Martin, has supported her recently to point out that she was struggling. She said, “A few weeks ago, I was having a low day and my partner, [Chris Martin], said to me, ‘Are you really struggling?’ and I said, ‘No?’”
Dakota continued, “And he said, ‘Baby, you are wearing a Cats T-shirt.’ As in Cats the musical. So it turns out, I really was struggling. But that moment lifted me up and pulled me out of it.”
The Actress Finds Masking Depression In Comedy Relieving
Further in her speech, Dakota Johnson said that she felt a bout of anxiety after the foundation learned about her depression and decided to present an award to her for advocacy. In the speech, the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ actress admitted that she talks about depression and anxiety “in a very self-deprecating way.”
Dakota Johnson said, “Perhaps, I sometimes find it easier to look it in the eyes if I mask it in comedy.” She added, “Covering my pain or anxiety with comedy has become a lifelong tool, and I don’t think it’s a bad thing, it works, it helps me. Because, sometimes if I don’t laugh, I will cry.”
