Dakota Johnson May or May Not Be Bisexual, but Fans Are Loving the Idea That She Might Be
Dakota Johnson is charismatic, funny, and seems like a pretty nice person. She doesn’t really get into problematic situations and her hilarious Ellen appearance solidified her as the best meme of 2019 that keeps on giving. Now fans have rediscovered an interview where Johnson seemed to have confirmed she’s bisexual. And they love it.

An old interview with Dakota Johnson seems to hint at her being bisexual
Johnson, like most celebrities, isn’t just going to come out and say who she’s dating. She’s talked about her previous relationships in the past, but even in her current relationship, she’s not super forthcoming with details. However, back in 2017, she talked to Vogue in-depth about her life and her projects like Fifty Shades of Grey. She also talked about her sexuality.
“I’ve been in a phase of my life where I’m fascinated by young women coming to terms with their sexuality,” she told Vogue on Jan. 13, 2017. “I guess, by proxy, I have been experiencing that in my own life, and it’s very interesting to me.”
She said this in response to talking about the roles she’s taken, which include Anastasia Steele, but also other movies like The Social Network and A Bigger Splash. But then they got into her recent breakup (at the time) and she talks about her intense feelings when she’s in a relationship.
“Sh*t happens,” she said. “I think I’m a little bit heartbroken all the time, even when I’m in a happy relationship. I don’t do casual very well, and my feelings, even the good ones, get so intense that they hurt.”

This brings us to her direct quote that has fans freaking out. In addition to already saying she’s exploring her sexuality, Johnson cheekily talks about making this interview “really juicy.”
“Can we say that I’m taking this time to explore my bisexuality?” she asked. “Or that I have given myself to the Lord following the release of my sexually explicit trifecta of films?”
A lot of fans are loving this and ‘connecting the dots’
Now, she’s being a little bold and playful when she said this, it seems. But while she didn’t exactly say “I’m bisexual,” calling it “my bisexuality” seems to hint that she is. Or she could just be exploring if she is, and she’s really not.
It’s obviously unclear, and no one should assume anyone’s sexuality or label. But fans are loving the idea that Johnson could be bisexual.
One Twitter user wrote, “people are surprised dakota johnson isn’t straight when she’s that cool and charming.” And writer and internet personality Gaby Dunn tweeted, “I wanna be the type of queer where a woman being spotted with me is essentially her coming out.” She was referring to another tweet of Johnson hanging out with Cara Delevingne a ton.
Fans are really leaning into this, with another tweeting that they’re “connecting the dots” and clues that Johnson has seemingly left for them. It was a pretty joyous day on Twitter when this trended on July 15.
Dakota is currently dating Chris Martin
Johnson was linked to actor Jordan Masterson in 2013. And according to E! News, she went on to date Matthew Hitt, lead singer of the band Drowners, in 2014 for a two-year, on-again-off-again relationship. Another Twitter account wrote that Johnson and Delevingne may have dated in 2016, which is when a lot of their pictures are from, but that one is more speculation.
But none of these past relationships have been as public as her current relationship with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. As Showbiz Cheat Sheet previously reported, the two have been dating since 2017, and while very private when it comes to public appearances, their relationship has been confirmed by Johnson’s mom Melanie Griffith. And sources say Johnson gets along with Martin’s ex-wife, Gwenyth Paltrow.
Only Johnson can be the one to confirm or deny her potential bisexuality, but most of her fans are ecstatic, nonetheless.
