Dakota Johnson created most awkward moment in Ellen Show history when she called Ellen out live on air

The actress corrected Ellen in front of a live audience.

Dakota Johnson evidently takes no prisoners when it comes to false allegations.

The actress has starred in a host of Hollywood movies over the course of her acting career, and released her film The Peanut Butter Falcon with Shia LeBeouf in 2019.

Ahead of its release, Johnson featured on The Ellen Show when things turned a little bit awkward between the pair.

While there was some discussion about the film, the veteran host went on to note that Johnson had recently turned 30, which led to DeGeneres claiming she was never invited to her birthday party.

But Johnson was seemingly not happy with the response though, as she swiftly responded: "Actually, no, that’s not the truth, Ellen, you were invited.

"No, last time I was on the show, last year, you gave me a bunch of s**t about not inviting you, but I didn’t even know you wanted to be invited."

"Well, who wouldn’t want to be invited to a party?" DeGeneres quickly prompted back.

"But I didn’t even know you liked me," Johnson insisted.

This led to a rather striking comeback from DeGeneres who insisted she has always liked the actor and wouldn't have invited her on the show so often if she wasn't a fan.

Johnson called out Ellen on her own show.

"But I did invite you, and you didn’t come," Johnson insisted.

Left feeling red-faced, it was confirmed that DeGeneres was in fact invited but that she was unable to attend because she'd been out of town.

On the fourth anniversary of the uncomfortable exchange between the pair, people took to X to reminisce about it.

"Four years ago today Dakota Johnson ended Ellen's whole career with 'actually that's not the truth Ellen'," one person penned on social media at the time.

A second added: "Dakota really clowned Ellen at her own show."

While a third remarked: "4 years ago, Dakota Johnson called out Ellen DeGeneres for lying about not being invited to her birthday party."

It all sounds a bit high school, doesn't it?

Johnson wasn't the only celebrity to call on DeGeneres on the show during its 19 season-long run.

Zac Efron featured on the show alongside Taylor Swift back in 2012 where the pair revealed that the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker had taught the actor how to play the guitar.

Swift taught Efron to play 'Pumped Up Kicks' by Foster the People, which he proceeded to play for DeGeneres - but with his own lyrics.

Noting that the host had previously claimed that Efron and Swift were romantically involved, some of the High School Musical star's lyrics went: "Ellen works a long day. Giving weird interviews in a slick, cool sweater. And it gets kind of weird, yeah, callin' us out, like we're boyfriend and girlfriend.

"But it's not just 'cause we're just sitting here and we got cat videos and dance on Betty White and stuff. And it's always gonna be weird - 'Cause this song is all about Ellen and Swift, yeah."
