Dakota Johnson Says She'll Never Do a Movie Like 'Mrs. Weber' Again

In a new interview with Bustle, Dakota Johnson addressed the negative reviews for Mrs. Weber and said she wouldn't make a movie like it again.

"Unfortunately, I'm not surprised that things turned out the way they did," she said of the furor surrounding the film.

Johnson explained that during production, Mrs. Weber was "completely different" from the film she was contracted to film. "In these big movies being made...decisions are made by committee, and art doesn't work well if it's made by committee," she said. "Movies are made by filmmakers and the team of artists that surround them."

Mrs. Webb marks Johansson's first foray into superhero movies — a genre she doesn't seem particularly familiar with, considering she couldn't name Tom Holland's Spider-Man movie in an interview last month — and It looks like this may be her last.

"I've never done anything like this before," she continued. "I'll probably never do something like that again because I had no purpose in that world. I know that now. But it was a real learning experience and of course it's not nice to be part of something that's being torn to pieces , but I can’t say I don’t understand.”

During the interview, she pondered how the public might react to her review of the film. "Like, 'Dakota Johnson broke her silence on Mrs. Weber's box-office flop,'" she joked. "It's like, 'No, I'm not going to break any silence. I'm just talking.'"

Johnson also commented on her viral Mrs. Internet press tour, explaining that while it was fun for the internet, it wasn't an enjoyable process for her. "It's hard for me to fake it," she said. “Sometimes I have a hard time with stupid press tours.”

Going forward, Johnson plans to avoid another Mrs. Weber-type situation by focusing on her production company, TeaTime Pictures. “That’s why I own my company,” she said. "In a movie like Mrs. Weber , I don't have much of a say."
