Twitter goes wild over Dakota Johnson shutting down Ellen DeGeneres in viral interview clip

A clip from Dakota Johnson's recent appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" went viral over the holiday weekend in which the "50 Shades" star calls out DeGeneres after being accused of not inviting her to her birthday party.

The actress sat down with DeGeneres for Wednesday's episode of her show to promote her latest movie, "The Peanut Butter Falcon," and the talk show host brought up Johnson's 30th birthday party that happened back in October and wondered why she wasn't invited to attend.

"How was the party? I wasn’t invited," DeGeneres asks Johnson in the clip.

"Actually, no, that’s not the truth," Johnson replies with a knowing smile. "Ellen, you were invited. No, last time I was on the show last year, you gave me a bunch of sh-t about not inviting you, but I didn’t even know you wanted to be invited."

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.

"Well, who wouldn’t want to be invited to a party?" DeGeneres responds, before Johnson shoots back, "Well, I didn’t even know you liked me."

"Of course I like you. You knew I liked you," DeGeneres says, defending herself. "You’ve been on the show many times and don’t I show like?"

"But I did invite you, and you didn’t come, so…" Johnson trails off, as Ellen appears confused. "This time you invited me?"

"Yeah," Johnson says.

"Are you sure?" DeGeneres asks.

"Yeah," Johnson says again.

 

 

DeGeneres was skeptical that she received the invitation, so Johnson tells her to "ask everybody -- ask Johnathan, your producer." When someone from behind the scenes confirms that she was indeed invited, Ellen says, "Oh yeah, I had that thing."

"It [the party] was probably in Malibu. That’s too far for me to go to," DeGeneres then says, before Johnson confirms the location of her star-studded bash.

"No, I think I do remember, I was invited," the host concedes. "Thank you!"

Naturally, Twitter had a field day with the playfully tense moment between the two stars on "The Ellen Show."

So, what was the "thing" that Ellen had that weekend? Well, Johnson's party was held in Malibu, California, on Saturday, October 5, where the likes of Miley Cyrus, Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey, Jr. were on-hand to celebrate her turning 30. The next day, DeGeneres made headlines for attending a Cowboys game in Dallas, Texas, with her wife Portia de Rossi, George W. Bush and wife Laura Bush.

We all know what happened next.
