Dakota said she gets ‘really nervous’, for example, when coming onto his show ‘and I laugh and then cry most of the time’.

‘But, singing in front of people is actually so terrifying for me,’ she told Jimmy.

‘And we had to shoot the scene where you don’t even really see me. The camera’s in the back of… you can’t even really tell what’s going on, and I was meant to be performing in community theater. And they hit playback of my voice, my vocal recording, and called ‘Action’,’ Dakota recalled.

‘And it was like I had a panic attack that manifested in all the ways that it does, that it can, so, like, I just took off running. Running, like around the theater, around backstage.  

‘I was running around, and then just started laughing hysterically, and everyone on the crew’s like, ‘What’s she doing?” Running around, laughing and then just stopped moving and started crying,’ Dakota shared.

The 21 Jump Street actress blamed her behavior on being ‘so scared’.
