Josh Brolin is opening up about the internet thinking he wanted to “make out” with Timothée Chalamet.

Speaking on Tuesday’s episode of Good Morning America, Brolin, 56, addressed the rumors that stemmed from his poetry about his costar, 28, in the new Dune book, Dune: Exposures.

“Yeah... you know, that's gotten out of control. You know what, when you're an older actor, okay, and you're looking at new, great younger talent, I get excited,” Brolin said. “So you're sitting there and you see Florence Pugh, or you're seeing Zendaya, or you're seeing Timothée, and I get excited.”

“Especially people who work hard,” he continued. “So I'm sitting there writing and I don't have a scene that day, and I'm writing these nice things and then the internet grabs a hold of it and thinks I want to make out with Timothée or whatever.”

“It makes no sense,” Brolin added. “It says more about them than it does about me.”

Dune: Exposures collects hundreds of "intimate, evocative photographs" taken by Director of Photography Greig Fraser on the sets of Dune: Part One and Dune: Part Two. The book is made up of candid photos on set, as well as poetic writing by Brolin.

Brolin plays the role of Warmaster Gurney Halleck in Dune: Part One and in the upcoming sequel, which will be released on March 1.
