    Being a millennial, the ‘Fifty Shades’ star felt ostracized among her Gen-Z co-stars revealing that they would annoy her. In a recent interview with Seth Meyers on Late Night, Dakota Johanson opened up about the generational disconnect she felt with her co-stars. The actress said, “I love them. And they annoy me. And I love them.”

    Seth Meyers further asked Johnson if she felt oldest among the three co-stars. To which Johnson replied, “All the time. Like, every second of the day. I’m not that much older than them.” However, this is not the first time Johnson felt ignored by her co-stars.

    Previously the ‘Persuasion‘ star also opened up about how she was neglected on the set of ‘The Office, in which she starred in a minor role that went unnoticed.

    While talking with E! News, Johnson spoke about feeling disconnected from her co-stars and they never fail to make her feel older. The actress also revealed that Isabel Merced, Sydney Sweeney, and Celeste O’Connor were part of a group chat named The Boo Crew and she wasn’t invited to be a part of it. Johnson said, “I don’t think they include me. I’m older than them, and they make sure that I’m aware of that.”

Dakota Johnson also praised Sweeney saying, “She’s such an amazing actress, and really has such an incredible work ethic.” In an interview with Capital FM, Johnson said, “The three younger women became really close, and that it was sweet and wonderful to see their camaraderie.”

    Meanwhile, in the same interview with E! News, the co-stars praised Dakota Johnson and admitted that they always looked up to her.
