Steve Martin took to Twitter on Sunday to share some good news and bad news with his fans. As for the good news, the iconic movie star said he's received the COVID-19 vaccination. And for the bad news, he joked that he got it because he's old.

"Good news/Bad news. Good news: I just got vaccinated! Bad news: I got it because I’m 75. Ha!," Martin tweeted on Sunday.

He went on to say his experience was "smooth as silk."

"The operation in NYC was smooth as silk (sorry about the cliché @BCDreyer!) and hosted to perfection by the US Army and National Guard," he shared. "Thank you all, and thank you science."

Martin, a New York resident, also shared exactly how he got the vaccine after a fan said they could not "find a place for my 83 year old mother in law who lives in NYC."

"I signed up ON line through an NYC dot gov website (sorry I don’t have the exact site), and waited IN line at the Javits Center," Martin replied. 

The Father of the Bride star claimed that the vaccine hasn't had any side effects yet. "Right now, I’m having no fide resects," he quipped. 

This isn't the first time Martin has tweeted about the coronavirus. In September, he joked about making sure fans can still recognize him under his mask. His solution? Wearing a giant "Steve Martin" sign over his head with an arrow pointing down!

"I always wear a mask when I go outside. But something about it was leaving me anxious and unsettled," he tweeted. "I thought about the problem, addressed it, and here is the solution."
