Dakota Johnson brought her signature charm and humor to Saturday Night Live this weekend, hosting the show for the first time. She delivered a hilarious monologue that touched on everything from her family to her love of marijuana.
In her monologue, Johnson joked about her famous parents, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, and her experience growing up in Hollywood. She also poked fun at herself, admitting that she’s not exactly the most “Saturday Night Live” person.
“I’m not exactly the most ‘Saturday Night Live’ person,” she said. “I’m more of a ‘stay in and watch Netflix in my pajamas’ kind of girl.”
But Johnson proved that she’s more than capable of holding her own on the live sketch show. She was game for anything, whether it was playing a clueless contestant on a game show or a sexy robot in a spoof of “Westworld.”
One of the highlights of the night was a sketch called “Please Don’t Destroy,” in which Johnson played a woman who is constantly interrupted by her annoying neighbors. The sketch was so funny that it quickly went viral.
Johnson also showed off her comedic timing in a sketch called “The Barry Gibb Talk Show,” in which she played a talk show host who is interviewing the Bee Gees. The sketch was a hilarious send-up of 70s variety shows.
