During E! News' "Live From the Red Carpet" at the Oscars, the 50 Shades of Grey star gave the host the cold shoulder when he tried to bring her over for a quick chat. "We're having a special conversation here," she said, referring to the convo she was having with Ethan Hawke...and turned around to finish that chat while Ryan waited...live on the air.
Then, as if things couldn't get any more awkward, Dakota continued to appear standoffish when she turned back around to talk to Ryan.
After saying her parents never saw her erotic thriller and that she kept a flogger from the set, Ryan asked what she was doing when the movie opened. "I think I was in London or something... I was on a plane or something...I don't know," she responded curtly. Gulp.
Perhaps this was just Oscar night jitters? Although her parents – Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson – are pros at the red carpet scene, Dakota is still somewhat of a newbie and she's also presenting at the Academy Awards for the first time tonight.
In addition to that, the actress is reportedly newly single after splitting from her boyfriend Matthew Hitt. It's possible she had her guard up in case Ryan asked her about him. Either way...could you sense the tension in that interview? Tell us what you think in the comments!
