You are undoubtedly aware that people should sleep for at least seven hours every night according to health guidelines, yet many cannot even meet that recommendation due to a variety of circumstances.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Dakota revealed that she frequently naps for longer than three hours at a time and that, in times of stress, she will stop at nothing to take a “grounding” bath. People were shocked to learn last month that actress Dakota Johnson can “easily” sleep for 14 hours.

Dakota said she doesn’t have a regular waking time

Dakota explained her daily schedule, stating that she doesn’t have a “regular” wake-up time. “It depends on what’s happening in my life. If I’m not working, if I have a day off on a Monday, then I will sleep as long as I can. Sleep is my number one priority in life.” says the actress. When asked how many hours of sleep she usually aims for, Dakota earnestly replied: “I’m not functional if I get less than 10. I can easily go 14 hours.”

How her statement created controversy

The star’s remarks generated controversy, and she quickly found herself the focus of numerous opinion articles. Others flocked to social media to express their amazement and jealousy at how well-rested Dakota is, as outlets questioned whether this was too much sleep to be healthy. However, for every admirer of Dakota’s ability to sleep, there was someone who called her a backwards person, saying that her excessive sleep was evidence that she had “no real life responsibilities.”

“I would sleep all day too, if I had money like hers, a cook, maid, & gardener. Must be nice to get 6hrs of sleep. I work 3 jobs just to get a good paycheck. I’m exhausted. I’m happy she gets to rest 15hrs a day,” another person tweeted.

Dakota clarifies on the Jimmy Fallon show about her statement

When Jimmy brought up the different news articles regarding her sleeping patterns, Dakota nervously responded to him., “I didn’t even say it like that.” “You like to sleep 14 hours?” Jimmy asked. Answering between awkward giggles, Dakota explained: “No, I said that I could easily sleep 14 hours… But I don’t, like, demand it. I’m not a monster. I have a job.”

And as Jimmy reiterated just how much scrutiny she had faced for her comments, Dakota got defensive. She asked: “Why is sleep bad? Like, why? Leave me alone — I’m just asleep!” “I’m literally doing nothing,” she continued. “I’m just sleeping!” After Jimmy stated that he would “love” to sleep for fourteen hours, Dakota didn’t hesitate to express how effortless it is for her. She said: “I don’t have to take anything to sleep like that either. I can just sleep like that.”

“I think if I took, like, an Ambient [sleeping pill], I think I would wake up next year,” she added.

This time, viewers have responded to Dakota’s comments less sharply, with most of them concurring that the haters ought to stop and let Dakota sleep as much as she pleases without making her feel bad.

“I mean, if I could sleep 14 hours I would 😂,” one person commented on a clip of the interview. Another wrote: “Sleep is amazing and overwhelmingly underrated.” “If I COULD demand 14 hours a night, I would,” somebody else admitted. One more asked: “Why would i want to be awake more than I’m asleep when sleep is so comfy cozy?”
