    In a recent Instagram pic, Jonah — looking dapper in a button-down top, dress pants, and loafers — folds his hands to his waist and smiles directly at the camera. You know, the way a dad might.

    He wrote in the caption, "50 and thriving," clearly poking fun at his middle-aged look.

    Except, uh, some fans thought he was being literal.

    "*Instantly googles Jonah Hill’s age just to check* 😅" wrote one user.

    Clearly, the joke was lost on them, which somehow makes it even funnier. Just me?

    Anyway, Jonah, not one to miss out on the fun, had a perfect reaction.

    He shared a screenshot of a Metro headline, "Jonah Hill says he’s '50 and thriving’ – and fans are confused about his real age in dapper photo" with the caption, "Important news! 😂"

    You gotta love the guy for having some fun with it, right?

    Legend status.
