Dakota Johnson tells her neighbor, Jimmy Kimmel, that their other neighbors suck

Dakota Johnson was on her neighbor Jimmy Kimmel’s show in a very special guest appearance over the fence between their two properties. She was wearing an enormous fuschia dress with balloon sleeves that she said was straight off the runway and smelled like feet. It was the perfect outfit for a socially distanced interview where you could only see her from the chest up. I’m just thinking of how celebrities are going to dress differently for interviews now. We’re used to seeing so many women’s legs in high cut dresses but now that interviews are remote we’re going to see more creative tops and cleavage. I think Dakota just set a trend.

My favorite part of this interview is when Dakota talked smack about their neighbors. At first I thought she was joking, then Jimmy confirmed that the neighbors to the other side of Dakota had her grandfather’s truck towed! Apparently Dakota confronted the neighbors at a charity event, right in front of Jimmy, and he told the story on his show when he was interviewing her in 2018. Here’s a link to that older interview and here’s what they said back then:

Jimmy: After the event, you and I were chatting near the bar and two of our neighbors came up. You immediately said ‘did you guys tow my grandfather’s truck?’ It was very clear that they did. They [got nervous] and then they just disappeared.

Dakota: I don’t know what happened I just turned into medusa and I’m not a confrontational person at all.

Jimmy: If I have problems on the block I’m going to come to you first and tell you. I laughed about it the whole night. Has there been any fallout from that?

Dakota: No I think I really scared them.

Jimmy: Your grandfather left you this really cool old truck. It’s a beater. It’s got out of state license plates.

Dakota: It’s a ’95 F150 but it doesn’t look super nice. He gave it to me and then he passed away. It’s very sentimental, but these neighbors. I hope they’re watching right now. They kept calling about it. They kept saying ‘I really don’t want to look at it anymore.’

Apparently Dakota got there before the tow truck driver and was able to stop it from being towed. She told Jimmy she was going to send the neighbors a cake of her truck! In this latest interview, Jimmy said he confirmed with the neighbors that they did try to get her grandfather’s truck towed.

On Hunter S. Thompson being her neighbor growing up
Hunter and my dad were best friends. He was at the house every night. He would always bring really bizarre gifts like bird callers, goggles or a fishing rod. He used to come into the driveway at like 3 o’clock in the morning to let us know that he was there.

On her neighbors sucking
You’re the best [neighbor]. The ones on the other side suck.

I had to rent a garage to put my truck in which is absolutely bullsh-t. They never owned up to it. Do you remember that night? That was nuts. I lost my mind.

Jimmy: They did tell me that it was them. [They saw the show.]

I watched Dakota’s Architectural Digest video tour of her home finally, and she bad mouthed the neighbors in that too! She said they’ve been trying to get her to cut her bamboo grove, but that she isn’t doing it because it keeps them from seeing into her yard.

Whenever I have a problem with neighbors, I talk smack about them to other neighbors and try to play like it’s innocent. I’ll be like “oh so and so did this, but I really don’t know how to feel about it” or “have you seen all the dog poop in the neighborhood? It looks like it’s from a big dog, like the one Carole has.” Dakota is openly calling out her neighbors to their faces and mentioning them in interviews! We’ve seen that she’s got some nerve and I’m here for it.

Here’s that interview! She’s so mellow but you do not want to cross her.

    I bet she gives Gwyneth a run for her money!

    I’ve liked Dakota since she stood her ground during that Ellen interview. Everyone has always talked about Ellen’s behavior but I feel like that interview really jump started the conversation on Twitter.

  3. MaryContrary says:

    I feel for her. We have horrible neighbors on one side of us-a for sale sign went up in front of their house a few weeks ago and I was ecstatic.

    • lucy2 says:

      Isn’t that the best relief?
      Previous house had a non-stop barking dog behind me, with an idiot owner who illegally burned lawn debris and filled the neighborhood with smoke occasionally. The day they moved, the silence was deafening!

  4. Nancypants says:

    We don’t have any problem neighbors now and it IS a relief.
    I think we are the only people in the state who don’t have a dog.
    We had one for 16 years and loved her dearly but we decided she’d be the last.

    Now, we have this rather odd house behind part of our backyard. The turn-over rate is crazy. I don’t know if it’s a rental or, I kind of think, a temp home for a religious group but everyone who has lived there has had a nuisance barker with a doggy door so it could go out anytime. Great.

    Then, I waited a month. I never saw a person, just the dog and one morning this dog was barking it’s head off at squirrels no less and I snapped.

    I work part-time but work evenings and often don’t get home until around midnight and I was sleepy and my next door neighbor friend is older than God and was recently widowed and another neighbor has cancer and I went outside and SCREAMED at the house, “SHUT THE HELL UP! MUZZLE YOUR DAMN DOG!”
    This is the killer, a woman scurried out and took the dog in after it had been barking for almost 30 minutes.
    It never barked again. I don’t think they still have it.

    One woman who lived there years ago trained her 2 big dogs to not bark by screaming at them and throwing cold water in their faces. No harm and they quit barking.

    Sidenote: that “bush” Dakota is standing behind…I’m pretty sure it’s Star Jasmine and it covers Charleston, SC in May etc. but more in giant, well-trained vines.
    I’m pretty sure it’s what part of heaven smells like.
    The other part smells like orange blossoms. 🙂

      That is abusive shit.

    • Christina says:

      Wow, you sound like a really bad neighbor. Muzzle your damn dog, woof!

  5. Lipreng says:

    I believe Jimmy said he lives across the street from John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. Not sure who else lives near them.

    • lucy2 says:

      I think they used to live there, I remember them talking about neighbor pranks or something before. But I think John and Emily moved to NY a while back?

    Having bad neighbors is the worst because there is no getting away from them. We lived in a great neighborhood and then had to move due to unforeseen circumstances and we were on a timeline so we are currently in a house that I hate. I’ve never liked it, we’ve had to do so much to it and literally keep finding half ass crap that the previous owner did to it, 5 years later. Pretty much all of our neighbors are older couples but there was a family behind us that were horrible and when they moved a couple summers ago and I was never so happy. We have some new neighbors that aren’t great but I’m just counting down until we can get out of here at this point.

    I will never understand the kind of people who complain about eye-sores. I get complaining if there’s a noise issue, or a safety issue. But the kind of people who get involved to the level that a vehicle is unwelcome to be parked in their neighborhood just weird me out. Who has the time or energy to focus on that kind of crap.

    Our neighbors are mostly older, they’re all 50+. Two of them have tractors that are annoyingly noisy, but they’re not using them at all hours or anything, so it’s perfectly fine. We pay one of them to plow out our driveway after big snowfalls so it works out in my favor.

      We live in a nice (non gated) community in southern California…. given where we are there are Teslas, Mercedes, BMWs and loads of Infiniti SUVs parked everywhere. One day a beater car started parking everyday in front of my house. Not illegal and I didn’t know them or care but my neighbors went ballistic and “investigated”. Turns out another neighbor down the street told her nanny to park in front of our house as she didn’t want her nanny’s car in front of her house. ( We are at the end at the cul de sac with lots of extra parking and we have an old Volvo station wagon so perhaps she knew we wouldn’t care) My other neighbors had a word with the neighbors and got into some sort of pissing match. Sheer lunacy all around. So, yeah, I totally get what happened to Dakota.

      • Thea says:

        When I was in high school, we were doing some remodeling. So I had to park my car at a cul de sac, it wasn’t in front of anyone’s house, it was to the side of someone’s, where no one ever parks and a neighbor left a note that I couldn’t park there. It was also a nice so cal neighborhood, that was gated and has lots of nice cars. And the thing is, my car wasn’t even a beater or anything. It was a bmw. Never found out who wrote the note, but it was annoying.

    • Keiji says:

      Same; there is something very wrong with you if somebody’s truck offends you. Who cares, seriously?? I thought that if I got rich one day it might eliminate the neighbour problem, but reading this shows me it never ends! Sigh.

  8. Case says:

    I really like her vibe.

  9. Chris says:

    I really like her too, but when watching that architectural digest episode my husband got angry at her neighbor complaint. He pointed out that bamboo is incredibly invasive and in some states youre not even allowed to plant it because it spreads so rapidly and chokes out native species. Sooooo…. I’m with her neighbors on the bamboo thing. She definitely has the resources to find an alternative privacy plant. Other than that, they could definitely be complete jerks.

  10. Jules says:

    she looks so ridiculous in that pink horror show.

  11. Charfromdarock says:

    Her voice is so soothing. She could voice one of those sleep apps.
