Tom Cruise can relax, Justin Bieber doesn’t actually want to joust.

The pop star said in a video published by TMZ that he was kidding when he issued a cryptic challenge to the aging movie star Sunday night.

“I was just playing,” Bieber said in the video, chalking up the challenge to a joke.

The joke made waves.

Conor McGregor, the Irish UFC star, offered to use his company to host the fight. And more than 40,000 accounts retweeted Bieber’s chirp demanding the fight, in which he said, “Tom if you dont take this fight your scared and you will never live it down.”

Bieber backed away in the video published Wednesday, and conceded that Cruise, 56, would cruise to victory if the two battled.

“He’d probably whoop my ass in a fight,” Bieber said, grinning. “I’m really skinny.”

Bieber, 25, does own a height advantage on Cruise. Bieber is 5-feet-9, according to a Google height search, while the “Mission Impossible” star stands 5-feet-7.

Bieber said he’s never met Cruise.
