The star spills on what ~almost~ happened at the award show

Wardrobe malfunctions can happen when you least expect them. Just ask Dakota Johnson, who thought she was in the clear once she made it onstage … and got thrown a curveball when she least expected it.

The 26-year-old actress recently opened up to Seth Meyers on
Late Night With Seth Meyers
about almost losing her top on live television at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards.

Johnson said when she went onstage to accept the award for Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress, she briefly hugged her friend and fellow actress Leslie Mann, who may or may not have unhooked the top half of her Armani Privé Couture crop top and skirt ensemble.

“I hadn’t seen her in a while, so I hugged her,” she told Meyers. “I hugged Leslie and then my dress broke and it was a two-piece, so my top almost fell off.”

Not one to miss a beat, Meyers quipped: “That would have been a People’s Choice.”

During the award show, Johnson joked about the near-nudity moment, commenting on the fact that it wouldn’t be the first time fans have seen her er, assets.

“Leslie just broke my dress,” the Fifty Shades of Grey star announced, adding, “Well, it’s not like nobody here hasn’t already seen my boobs.”


We’ll end this post with some equal-opportunity toplessness.
