"I don't know what happened, I like turned into Medusa," the actress says of the confrontation.
The comedian told his audience that the "Bad Times at the El Royale" star is his next-door neighbor, and he cracked up while sharing a story of witnessing her basically flip out on a couple that lives on their street while they were all attending a charity event this past Saturday. The event was hosted by Will Ferrell, and some of the funniest people in Hollywood were there, but Kimmel said Johnson gave him the biggest laugh.
"The funniest moment of the night, for me, was after the event you and I were chatting near the bar, and two of our mutal neighbors came up," he explained. "And you immediately said, 'Did you guys tow my grandfather's truck?' And their reaction was -- well, first of all, it was very clear they towed your grandfather's truck.'"
"I don't know what happened, I like turned into Medusa," she said of the moment. "And I'm not a confrontational person at all. They're people that I don't know."
"I think I really scared them," she added. "I really scared myself."
"I laughed about it the whole night. I really did," Kimmel said before asking for finer details of the conflict.
"It's a '95 F150, but it doesn't look super nice," Johnson said. "They kept calling about it, and they kept saying, 'I really just don't want to look at it anymore,' and I was like, 'Well, look somewhere else, you don’t have to stare at it all day!'"
Luckily, Johnson got to her house right as the tow truck had arrived, and her truck was able to stay where it belonged.
She has a plan to send them another message, though. "I’m gonna send them a cake," she laughed. "Of my truck."
