She has been open and honest about seeking therapy in the past.
But Dakota Johnson has revealed she will likely be in counseling for the rest of her life as she opened up about her appreciation for psychology.
‘I’ve been so lucky to be surrounded by people who have encouraged me to go deeper into myself,’ Dakota, 31, said on Monday’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show.
‘Even during quarantine, I got really into doing online psychology courses ’cause I never went to college ’cause I wasn’t going to get into college, but I did these amazing courses,’ she added.
‘I’ll probably be in therapy for the rest of my life. You never finish learning about being a human.’
Dakota, who is the daughter of actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, has previously spoken candidly about suffering from depression and learning to cope with it.
‘I’ve struggled with depression since I was young—since I was 15 or 14,’ she previously told Elle. ‘That was when, with the help of professionals, I was like, Oh, this is a thing I can fall into.
‘But I’ve learned to find it beautiful because I feel the world. I guess I have a lot of complexities, but they don’t pour out of me. I don’t make it anyone else’s problem.’

Meanwhile, Dakota also discussed using George Clooney’s name to get reservations at restaurants.
‘Did you or did you not use to make reservations at restaurants under the name George Clooney to get the best table?’ Drew asked Dakota.
‘No, it wasn’t even to get the best table it was just to get a reservation but yeah I did that,’ Dakota confirmed.
Surprisingly, George was ‘cool’ with Dakota’s name-dropping tactic.
‘I had not met him obviously and he was like, “I’ve heard about what you’ve done.” And I was like, “Oh my God.” But he was cool with it,’ she said.
Dakota has been busy promoting her new film Our Friend, which was released last week by Gravitas Ventures in theaters and on demand.
Based on a true story, the film follows couple Nicole (Dakota) and Matthew Teague as they confront an uncertain future after Nicole is diagnosed with terminal cancer, with the couple allowing their best friend to move in and help.
The film also stars Oscar-winner Casey Affleck, 45, as Matthew and Jason Segel, 41, as close friend Dane Faucheux.
