Welcoming her onto the show and wishing her a happy belated 30th, EllenDeGeneres joked that she didn't receive an invite to Dakota Johnson's birthday party.
The actress was alluding to her appearance on the show from the previous fall, during which she dispelled rumors that her 29th birthday party was actually a gender reveal party (she's been dating Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for a few years now.), when DeGeneres called her out for attending her own star-studded bash without giving her an invitation to hers.
"Actually, no, that's not the truth", Johnson replies with a knowing smile. Johnson suggested she ask her producer, who was then shown off-set and said, "You were out of town". Here's hoping that Ellen makes it to Dakota's 31st birthday party. "You were invited", Dakota proclaimed.
"But I did invite you and you didn't come", says Dakota, in now one of the most gloriously awkward conversations on television. Ellen asked the producer. "You've been on this show many times, and don't I show like?" She was actually in Texas where she controversially sat next to former U.S. president George W. Bush at an National Football League game.
President Bush also entered the United States into a war with Iraq and Afghanistan under the later-disproved belief that they possessed weapons of mass destruction.
"People were upset. They thought, 'Why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican present?'" she said.
Addressing the controversy at the time, Ellen opened her show with a monologue about kindness and said Bush was a friend.
Since the 30-year-old's appearance, online sleuths have pieced together the potential reason why she was a no-show: DeGeneres was hanging out with buddyGeorge W. Bush the following day!
As it happens, Johnson's birthday party fell on October 5 - the same weekend that DeGeneres was at a Dallas Cowboys football game with George W. Bush. In fact, I'm friends with a lot of people who don't share the same beliefs that I have.
"No, I think I do remember, I was invited", the host concedes.
"Just because I don't agree with someone on everything doesn't mean I'm not going to be friends with them". "Of course I like you. I mean be kind to everyone".
