Dakota Johnson Reveals How She Came to Direct Coldplay's 'Cry Cry Cry' Video (& It's Not Because She's Dating Chris Martin)


Dakota Johnson
directed the “Cry, Cry, Cry” music video for her boyfriend Chris Martin‘s band Coldplay, and now, she’s explaining how that happened.

“I wrote the story and pitched it to the band like every other director did, and they chose mine—not because they’re partial to me at all,” Dakota told Marie Claire while letting out a laugh, referring to her relationship with the band’s frontman. They have been dating since 2017.

Dakota added that she curated “every single detail” in the music video. “When I work, I’m constantly thinking about the job. It takes up so much of my brain. Not all of my projects are only good messages, but all of them have a little bit of something that makes me feel like it’s an okay thing to pour my heart into.”

You have to watch the music video, which was released this past February! You can find out the last time we saw Dakota and Chris out together right here.
