Tom Cruise has finally answered the question the internet has been wondering about since the summer.

Back in August, a Twitter user posted a screenshot of the actor from his 2008 film Valkyrie, wondering if Cruise used a prosthetic posterior for that particular scene:

The post went viral, and now Cruise is settling things once and for all. During a recent interview with Screen Rant to promote his new film American Made, the actor said he was unaware of the meme and that the butt speculation is unfounded.

“I have no idea,” he said. “There was no prosthetic in Valkyrie. No.”

Cruise also said that American Made, which features a running gag in which his character moons his family, does not feature a butt prosthetic or body double.

“It’s me. It’s not CGI, it’s me. I do my own mooning in films,” he added. “So let it be known — I do my own mooning.”

Good to know. Thanks, Tom!

American Made opens in theaters on Friday.
