Jonah Hill wants everyone to know things are good between him and Baby Yoda, aka Grogu, the little green star of The Mandalorian.

The mock feud began after the online reaction to a recent profile in W Magazine in which the actor mentioned that he doesn’t typically watch sci-fi, but Don’t Look Up co-star Leonardo DiCaprio convinced him to watch the Disney+ series set in the Star Wars universe.

He wasn’t exactly impressed.

“Leo made me watch The Mandalorian when we were making Don’t Look Up,” he told the magazine. “And it was like... Baby Yoda was so cute, but I just didn’t give a fuck because I didn’t know anything that it was about.”

The comments led to more than a few laughs online ― including this one:

I like how they present this like he’s feuding with baby Yoda

Jonah highlighted the tweet on Instagram to take a shot at the coverage of the comment.

“LOL is there anything cornier than literally all media,” he wrote. “They’re literally trying to create beef between me and Baby Yoda.”

He added:

“I’m getting ahead of it. I wanna say this once on the record officially: Baby Yoda and I are dear friends and text at least once a week. 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.”
