Actress Dakota Johnson has been using the coronavirus shutdown to study psychology.
The Suspiria star admits she barely scraped by in school during her childhood, but now she’s developed a passion for learning, and she’s been putting her unexpected downtime to good use.
She told America’s The Drew Barrymore Show, “During quarantine I got really into doing online psychology courses because I never went to college – ’cause I wasn’t gonna get into college – but I did these amazing courses.”
“I did graduate high school,” she added, “but I’m pretty sure it was really, truly, by the skin of my teeth! I think they were like, ‘Just get her out of here!'”
Dakota admits the online classes have helped her understand more about her own mental health and behavior, which she has been working through in regular counseling sessions for years.
“I’ll probably be in therapy for the rest of my life,” she mused. “It’s like, you never finish learning about being a human.”
