Christine Baranski on viral Met Gala photo, ‘dissing’ Musk

She put up a good fight, even if it was unintentional.

Christine Baranski is shedding some light on the wide-eyed daggers she aimed at Elon Musk during this year’s Met Gala — memorialized in Sinna Nasseri’s viral photo from the annual May event.

“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,” the “Good Fight” star, 70, told Entertainment Weekly this week.

Upon noticing the controversial Tesla founder’s presence, Baranski recalls having “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?’”

Noting she’s “an environmentalist,” Baranski said, “I must have at some point turned back and looked, but I did not pose for that picture.”

She pointed to the Paramount+ “Good Wife” spinoff — which will end with its sixth season, premiering on the streamer in September — and how the finale gives her a platform to confront the morals and actions of said billionaires.

“I get to bash the billionaires a bit,” she told the outlet, referring to her character, Diane Lockhart, getting to have it out with the Google-adjacent founder portrayed by John Benjamin Hickey. “I’ve added a few lines [to the script] and I will include Elon Musk in the finale episode.”
