If looks could kill, Christine Baranski would be behind bars.

The Good Fight actress, 70, addressed that viral picture of her staring at Elon Musk during the 2022 Met Gala—and let's just say, she is not a fan of the richest person in the world.

"The funny thing is I have no memory of turning back and glaring at him, but I was actually dissing him as I was waiting in line to go to dinner," she told Entertainment Weekly July 20. "I was with someone who was at my table, and I noticed Elon Musk and I went, 'Oh my God, it's Elon Musk.' I basically said [to my friend], 'I don't know how you feel about him, but why is he spending billions of dollars in space when he could be cleaning up the planet?' I'm an environmentalist."

Christine, who added that she has a "low opinion" of billionaires like Elon, said she "must have at some point turned back and looked, but I did not pose for that picture."

The Mamma Mia actress told the outlet that she snuck in a diss to the SpaceX CEO, 51, in an upcoming episode of The Good Fight, which will air its final season this fall.

"We have our own Elon Musk in The Good Fight," Christine shared. "Neil Gross is in the second-to-last episode. And I get to bash the billionaires a bit. I've added a few lines [to the script], and I actually will include Elon Musk in the final episode."

The sixth and final season of The Good Fight premieres Sept. 8 on Paramount+.
