Johnson started taking online psychology courses during the lockdown and insists she will probably be in therapy for as long as she lives as she enjoys learning “about being a human”.
Speaking on The Drew Barrymore Show, she said: “I’ve been so lucky to be surrounded by people who have encouraged me to go deeper into myself. Even during quarantine, I got really into doing online psychology courses ’cause … I wasn’t going to get into college, but I did these amazing courses. I’ll probably be in therapy for the rest of my life. You never finish learning about being a human.”
The Fifty Shades of Grey actress had a “panic attack” before she sang for her role in ‘Our Friend’ and admits it left her feeling so “terrified” that she ran off the set as she tried to cope.
She said: “Singing in front of people is actually so terrifying for me. And we had to shoot the scene where you don’t even really see me. The camera’s in the back of … you can’t even really tell what’s going on, and I was meant to be performing in community theatre. And they hit playback of my voice, my vocal recording, and called ‘Action’. And it was like I had a panic attack that manifested in all the ways that it does, that it can, so, like, I just took off running. Running, like around the theatre, around backstage. I was running around, and then just started laughing hysterically, and everyone on the crew’s like, ‘What’s she doing?’ Running around, laughing and then started crying. It was like extreme flight mode.”
