Rebecca Ferguson is addressing her recent viral comments about an unnamed "absolute idiot of a costar."

While on SiriusXM's The Jess Cagle Show, the Dune: Part Two actress, 40, said she was "not expecting" so many people on the internet speculating and trying to identify the A-list former cast mate.

"The point of the interview wasn't about finding the person. Of course people will be interested," she said.

"But what I was excited about the question — it was a very good question by him, because the point was, 'Is there a point in your career where you were treated in a way where you changed your decision on either (this is how I formulated it in myself) you want change or you will not accept it, etcetera. And it was such a clear moment for me, working with this person."

Ferguson added that she received several calls about what she said in the interview.

"I got phone calls from amazing costars who I've worked with going, 'You understand what you've done, right?' And I was like, 'Oh my God. No, I didn't... I didn't think....' " said Ferguson.

"I mean, it's not my responsibility, to be honest — I don't really care," she continued. "You're great, but my story is my story, and if you're a good person then don't worry about it."

It was on the Reign with Josh Smith podcast in February that Ferguson said she was once "screamed at" by an actor who was "number one on a call sheet." Ferguson said "no one had my back" at the time and she "would cry walking off set." Until she said she confronted the person despite being "so scared."

"I looked at this person and I said, ‘You can eff off. I’m gonna work towards a tennis ball. I never want to see you again,' " she said, later adding, "From that moment, I have never let myself get to a point where I've got home and gone, 'Why did that happen?' "

During that interview, Ferguson clarified that it was not Hugh Jackman, whom she worked with on Greatest Showman and Reminiscence, nor Tom Cruise, her Mission: Impossible costar. When host Cagle joked on the recent appearance that it was Meryl Streep from their film Florence Foster Jenkins, Ferguson laughed and joked, "Damnit! I didn't think it would come out!"
