Dakota Johnson in awkward interview with US TV host Ellen DeGeneres

Knowing that Ellen missed Dakota Johnson's 30th birthday to stay with her good friend George Bush, it is really the icing on the cake. A back-and-forth ensued in which DeGeneres asked if Johnson was sure she had invited her and then asked herself why she hadn't gone.

Dakota JohnsonRecent interview with Ellen DeGeneres maybe just go downstairs as one of the most clumsy of all time, and now we know why! DeGeneres insisted Johnson had to have known she liked her because she'd appeared on "Ellen" several times - "Don't I show like?" "Oh yeah I had that thing", the comedian said. The social media users also say that Ellen has embarrassed himself on her own show by doing this.

Dakota circled wait on, pronouncing: 'But I did invite you and you didn't approach. So...' She accused Jimmy Fallon of continually interrupting her, saying, "Aren't you supposed to let people talk on this show?".

The tweets then went to another level when the internet discovered exactly where Ellen was on Dakota's birthday weekend. "I wasn't invited" - after which the awkwardness space in.

Ellen had previously defended her hang out with Bush on the show itself. This would make sense, given that the Dallas Cowboys/Green Bay Packers game took place on Sunday 6th October and Dakota's birthday fell on the 4th, just two days prior. TEA.

Johnson's 30th birthday party was held on October 5 and was attended by a slew of stars, including Robert Downey Jr., Sean Penn, Miley Cyrus, Johnson's rumoured boyfriend Chris Martin and even Martin's ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow.

The delectable twist in the entire story is that Ellen's producer concedes she was invited, but that she was "out of town", and as it turns out this is also true because, on Johnson's birthday (October 4) weekend, Ellen was at the now infamous National Football League game where she was pictured with former US President George W. Bush. Last time I was on the show, last year, you gave me a bunch of shit about not inviting, you, but I didn't even know you wanted to be invited. When I say be kind to one another, I don't only mean the people that think the same way that you do. We're all different and I think that we've forgotten that's OK, that we're all different. Johnson, realising her mistake, quickly added "other than you", before jokingly standing up and pretending to leave. The global outlet revealed points out that Dakota's birthday bash took place on October 6.
