  • Dakota Johnson clarified her sleep habits on „The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
  • Johnson sparked controversy last year after claiming he could sleep for 14 hours straight.
  • Johnson told Fallon that she „didn't ask for” 14 hours every night.

Dakota Johnson is clarifying comments she made about her sleep habits last month.

Johnson said The Wall Street Journal In December, he could „easily” sleep 14 hours a night, sparking a debate about how much sleep people should be getting each night.

Addressing the social media reaction to her admission Monday night on „The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Johnson said: „I said I could easily get 14 hours of sleep, but I didn't claim it.”

„I'm not a monster,” he added. „Why sleepless? Why like this? Leave me alone. I'm sleeping.”

Johnson said he was able to sleep longer without taking sedatives.

„If I take an Ambien, I think I'll be up next year,” he said.

Johnson told the Journal last month that he can't function during the day unless he gets at least 10 hours of sleep.

„Sleep is my number one priority in life,” the „Madam Web” star said.

Reaction to Johnson's comments was divided.

Some users X, formerly known as Twitter, and health experts praised Johnson for speaking out about the importance of sleep. Other users considered her „Lazy.”

The Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine (JCSM) recommends that adults between the ages of 18 and 60 get seven to nine hours of sleep each night.

Some experts say too much sleep is unhealthy.

According to John Hopkins MedicineToo much sleep can lead to many health problems such as type 2 diabetes, depression and obesity.

However, sleep scientist Roy Rayman told Business Insider in 2021 that getting too much sleep varies from person to person.

„If you sleep more than nine hours a day, several days a week, and still feel tired during the day, you may be oversleeping,” she said.

Rayman also said it's difficult for researchers to determine whether excessive sleep triggers medical conditions or results from underlying diseases.
