Mark Hamill is a legend on Twitter. The actor best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the “Star Wars” series is funny, warm and generous when it comes to interacting with his fans. But he might not have known that one of them is Ariana Grande.
On Saturday, Hamill tweeted “Thank you, next” ― what he apparently believed was a “random phrase” and didn’t realize was the name of Grande’s latest single. The singer herself caught wind and was starstruck by Hamill.
Hamill later clarified the motivation behind his initial tweet and modified his spelling to match the song’s: “Thank U, Next.” He also heaped praise on the 25-year-old singer, calling Grande “one of the most popular artists in the history of showbiz.”
Grande continued to be bowled over by Hamill, saying of his follow-up tweet, “I’m gonna tattoo this to my forehead.”
She’s obviously joking, but still, we would recommend holding off on tattoos that you may later regret.
Allow us to perform the Jedi mind trick on you, Ariana. You’re going to be OK right now. You’re going to be OK.
Clarification: Language in this story has been amended to clarify that “Thank U, Next” is a single, not a full album.
