Kevin Costner is not going there.

The actor was quick to shut down questions about the rumored internal drama surrounding his exit from the popular show “Yellowstone” when pressed on the topic during an interview with Gayle King that aired Thursday.

Costner sat down with the host on “CBS Mornings” to promote his new show “Horizon,” but the conversation turned uncomfortable when King asked him to divulge why he decided not to return to “Yellowstone” for another season. King referenced rumors of a dispute between the actor and creator Taylor Sheridan and issues regarding compensation and scheduling.

The 69-year-old actor, who portrayed John Dutton lll in the series for five seasons, told King that he “loved the show before anybody” and would return “in a second if I felt that it was something that I could do.”

“But the characterization of you isn’t necessarily flattering,” King probed. “You made demands, you want to have a certain schedule, you want to shoot at a certain time, you want certain money.”

“If it’s not that hard, why can’t the two of you be able to work it out? People would love to see that,” she said.

Costner did not appreciate the persistence.
