Baby Yoda has officially taken over the world. We’ve seen countless reactions, a tattoo and whatever the fuck this Guy Fieri tweet is. But Laura Dern’s reaction to the loveable green man has really taken the cake.

Dern went viral earlier this week for swearing that she’d seen Baby Yoda (in the flesh) at a basketball game. The NBA, to be specific.

“I think he was at a basketball game,” she said. “That’s all I’m going to say. That, I think I saw him at a basketball game. It was NBA.”

The internet went wild over the comment, speculating that she was referring to rapper Da Baby or even bebe Timothee Chalamet.

Nobody is really sure what sort of fucked up game Laura Dern is playing, but it’s some pretty good publicity for the Jurassic Park actress.

Maybe this is a publicity stunt? Maybe Laura Dern IS Baby Yoda? Who knows!

Laura Dern has been in Hollywood for a long time, and has starred in some huge films along the way without being one of those super *public* celebrities. This is purely speculation, but Laura Dern must know some *shit*. If there’s a secret society within Hollywood’s elite, why wouldn’t she be in on it?

Conclusion: Laura Dern knows something about Baby Yoda that we don’t.

One day in the not-too-distant future, Baby Yoda is going to take over the world and Laura Dern will utter a quiet “I told you so” from her multi-million dollar mansion.

Thankfully, the 52-year-old is taking it all in her stride and enjoying her newfound meme fame.

She’s continued the Baby Yoda joke again today, sharing a snap of the little green man himself in her coffee.

“I’m feeling quite understood today,” she captioned her latest Instagram post.

The post comes two days after she shared this absolute gem at the basketball with Timothee Chalamet (note: not Baby Yoda).

“Caught a game to see if I could find him again. #BabyYoda”

It’s been a big year for Laura Dern, staring in major projects like Little Women, Big Little Lies and Marriage Story, but somehow her biggest headline of the year is about fucking Baby Yoda.
