Jonah Hill somewhat bizarrely announced on Instagram that he is not actually feuding with Mandalorian star Baby Yoda - after a magazine profile sparked concern online.
“I wanna say this once on the record: Baby Yoda and I are dear friends and text at least once a week,” Hill wrote in his Instagram caption.
Why did he feel the need to say that, you may wonder. Well, the comic feud began after Hill’s interview with W Magazine. He told the magazine his Don’t Look Up costar, Leonardo DiCaprio, introduced him to The Mandalorian. However, Hill was not interested in the Disney+ series nor Baby Yoda.
“Leo made me watch The Mandalorian when we were making Don’t Look Up, and it was like, Baby Yoda was so cute, but I just didn’t give a f*** because I didn’t know anything that it was about.”
He mopped up the unfolding drama with an Instagram post.
The caption read: “We may not be text every day type of friends and yes Covid put a strain on our friendship , but we are all good. And that’s all I will say on this matter ! Now please respect our privacy at this time.”
Other celebrities joined in on the fun, including actress Natasha Lyonne who wrote: “Wow. Really messed up what you did to Baby Yoda.”
In other news: we can only assume Baby Yoda has a cell phone.
The actor often posts funny or positive messages to his social media. In October, he made headlines after asking people to stop commenting on his appearance via Instagram.
