Last month, the “Wonder Woman” star recruited celebrities such as Natalie Portman, Will Ferrel and Mark Ruffalo to sing the John Lennon song to show their support for those affected by the. coronavirus pandemic. However, it did not go well on social media because critics analyzed it, calling it “disconnected” and “cringey”.
“She was trying to do something nice and nice and she just got nailed,” said the 37-year-old actor, ” Tea with me“Podcast. “I just got carried away, but listen, what are we going to do. “
“Fifty Shades of Gray” star also explained how he got involved in the derision clip, revealing that it was Kristen Wigg, his co-star “Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar” had asked to participate.
“Kristen and I made a film together last summer, which should be out on July 31, but who knows what’s going to happen,” said Dornan. “We got along brilliantly. I would do anything for her – that’s how much I think about her. I was the biggest fan of it before anyway. “
He said the “SNL” veteran texted him, “Gal and I are trying to organize this thing to cheer up.
And he was more than willing to help, but received a text a few days later from Wiig that said, “Sorry. “
“It’s a funny thing. Not being on social media, I wasn’t really aware of the negative reaction, but some comrades made me realize it quickly enough, “said Dornan.
As for the reason why she was criticized so harshly, the Irish model thinks that the “out of touch” part may have been because of the actual locale that different celebrities have used as the backdrop.
“I’ll tell you what the problem was. I literally made mine in the toilets of my house, “he started. “Obviously, some people had escaped to their second home. There is too much area in the background, too many beautiful trees swaying in the background, clearly in front of an ocean, this kind of madness. “
