Dakota Johnson gives very rare insight into relationship with Coldplay frontmanNovember 15, 2023
Gwyneth Paltrow raves about ex Chris Martin's partner Dakota Johnson
Dakota Johnson has spoken out about the heartfelt way her boyfriend and Coldplay vocalist, Chris Martin, pulled her out of a depressive episode.
As she was being honoured for her depression advocacy work at the 17th Annual HOPE Luncheon Seminar, the actress opened up about her mental health.
Dakota has lived with depression since she was 15-years-old and stated her coping mechanism is to use humour to “deflect.”
However, the 50 Shades of Grey star revealed this is one of the signs Chris knows to look out for.
She recalled: “A few weeks ago I was having a low day, my partner said to me so kindly, ‘Are you really struggling?’. I said, ‘No.’

“He said, ‘Baby, you’re wearing a Cats T-shirt,’” Dakota continued: “Like Cats, the musical. It turns out I was really struggling.
“But that moment lifted my heart, and it pulled me out of it.’
The actress shared: “I think most of the time I speak about depression or anxiety in a very self-deprecating way. Perhaps it is easier to look it in the eyes if I wear the mask of comedy.
“Covering my pain or anxiety in comedy is a lifelong tool and I don’t think it’s a bad thing. It works. It helps me because sometimes if I don’t laugh, I’ll cry.”

In 2021, the singer publicly dedicated the song Universe to Dakota during a Coldplay concert, as he told the crowd: “This is about my universe, and she’s here.”
The couple provided a brief glimpse of their relationship the following year with Chris briefly crashed her Zoom interview.
When Dakota was finally able to connect to the Sundance Film Festival Zoom event, she could be heard giggling with the 46-year-old.
After helping his girlfriend with the technical issue, Chris quickly threw up a peace sign and left the room.
