Oscars Luncheon + Vman interview and photoshoot

Timothée attended two events yesterday, the Oscars Luncheon and The Hollywood Reporter Nominees Night. You can see images from both in the gallery. He also gave two short interviews to VMan magazine. First he answered questions for Xavier Dolan and then had a chat with Frank Ocean. You can read some excerpts from both below. The interviews were accompanied by a new photoshoot which you can also see in the gallery along with another photoshoot for a French magazine Les Inrockuptibles (the interview is behind a paywall unfortunately for those who speak French).


XD Oh, everybody has spoiled that already! Thank you, you’re very sweet. So, what kind of artist are you? What are you looking for in your experiences with directors?

TC I look for a certain feeling, and I wouldn’t know how to describe it, but I know I’m always chasing it. I don’t quite know what it is that I’m after. I always like to think that the art doesn’t take place on screen, but in the audience member’s head. At a certain point I was able to come to grips with the idea to just “be.” That’s why I’m so impressed with your films, because you’re doing an incredible job just “being,” which is all I’m focused on while working. But you’re also weaving and keeping the story synchronized.

FO It seems like a good change of pace sometimes to do physically demanding films—the space, superhero, aggressive, big-budget action films.

TC Exactly. The project I’m jumping into is exactly that. I’m going to put on 25 pounds—I’m like a skinny little shit right now. Listen, I saw that one of your favorite films is The Master.

Paris Fashion Week + interview with drama teacher

Timothée’s at the Paris Fashion Week and you can see images from Berluti’s show in the gallery. Vanity Fair has also conducted an interview with Timmy’s drama teacher at LaGuardia. It’s a pretty interesting read, so head on over to Vanity Fair. Some excerpts can also be read below.


In Call Me by Your Name, there’s that incredible naturalism to his acting. Is that something you always noticed about him?

I think that’s really what we worked to get to. I auditioned Timmy to get into this school. He just happened to come to my room for the callback audition, and I remember his audition because I gave him the highest score I’ve ever given a kid auditioning. He was really that good, and he must have been, I don’t know, 13 at the time. It was riveting. He did two monologues, and then I think we had him read his scene. It was already clear that this kid was so interesting and gifted and compelling, and he didn’t get accepted [into the school], which surprised me. His sister was in my class, and she told me, “He didn’t get in.” I was like, “What? How did that happen?” I went to the principal [of the school at the time] . . . For some reason, who knows, maybe it was something on his middle-school record, lateness, or I don’t know what—[he had been] rejected in the interview. Thank goodness the principal was responsive to me, because I was very incensed that Timmy didn’t get in. To her credit—this was the last principal before the current one—she admitted him. In fact, thank god she did, because, I don’t know, he’d probably be in medical school now.
