Just like a butt dial, side-eye can be completely accidental.
Dakota Johnson became a meme after the recent Golden Globes, when a photo caught the "50 Shades Freed" actress seemingly glancing at Angelina Jolie while Jennifer Aniston presented an award. Jolie looked like she was studiously not paying attention to her ex-husband Brad Pitt's ex-wife. The Instagram photo went viral.
But now Johnson explains that she wasn't looking at Jolie at all.

On "The Tonight Show," Fallon asked Johnson about staring at Jolie while Aniston was presenting. First, Johnson defended herself by pointing out, "But so is Armie's (Hammer) wife!" =
She added, "I'm not the only one! ... I was trying to be sly about it."
But Johnson clarified that she wasn't actually side-eyeing on Jolie. "Truthfully, I don't think I was really looking at her because if you look really closely at the angle of my eyes, they're kind of over here," the actress said.
And by "here," she meant the table full of kids from "Stranger Things." So, instead of side-eyeing, she was fangirling!
"The thing that I hate the most is when people are in restaurants or whatever, when they try to take a sneaky picture of you," Johnson said. "So, I did that at the Golden Globes."
