Dakota Johnson’s New Tattoo Made Olivia Colman Furious
Dakota Johnson’s new tattoo ‘pissed off’ Olivia Colman
As co-stars in 2021’s The Lost Daughter, Dakota Johnson and Olivia Colman have often spoken of the bond they built while filming the intense emotional drama. In fact, all the women behind The Lost Daughter became close during production. That’s why when Johnson got her new tattoo alongside The Lost Daughter director Maggie Gyllenhaal and co-star Jessie Buckley, Colman was furious.
Following this year’s Met Gala, Dakota Johnson got a new and meaningful tattoo in a friend’s kitchen. The fresh ink is of a small scarab beetle on her ankle. It isn’t Johnson’s first tattoo, but when her The Lost Daughter co-star Olivia Colman found out, she was furious.
During her interview for the August issue of Vanity Fair, Johnson laughed. “She was pissed off,” the actor said of Colman. “She called and was like, ‘What the fuck?’”
“I got a WhatsApp photo of them all getting the tattoo that we were all meant to be having together,” Colman told Vanity Fair by phone from England, where she was on location filming a Sam Mendes movie. “I was rageful. I was so jealous. Tell her if she doesn’t give me my tattoo, that’s the end of our friendship — and I was considering her a friend for life.”
In The Lost Daughter, Dakota Johnson plays Nina, a young woman struggling with her roles in life. Nina befriends Leda (Olivia Colman) while both are vacationing separately in Greece until she finds out a strange secret about Leda. Meanwhile, the story also follows Leda’s flashbacks to her earlier life when she, too, was a struggling young woman (young Leda is played by Jessie Buckley).
