Timothée gave an interview for Time Out Magazine. You can read it at the link with some snippets being posted below. It is accompanied by a new photoshoot which you can see in the gallery.
Every movie you do seems to be huge, though. Doesn’t that ever get overwhelming?
‘I’d rather be stressed out over how much work I’m doing than sitting in an apartment on 163rd Street and Grand Concourse in the Bronx, waiting for the phone to ring. Or taping an audition for “The Neon Demon” that I rehearsed for a week and sent in, and they didn’t respond. Or for “The Theory of Everything” or “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”.’
Have you gone all Hollywood and got a stylist?
‘I hear about celebrities who have stylists, and that blows my mind. It’s certainly not why I act, but I can wear cool clothes from some of the nicest designers in the world. [So why] am I going to pay someone to figure out what I should be wearing? That’s the fun part.’
What’s the most starstruck you’ve ever been?
‘It might have been Matthew McConaughey when I met him on “Interstellar”. He just oozes movie-star qualities. He’s so confident and rugged. And similarly with Christian Bale when I met him on “Hostiles”. I remember him asking me to repeat my name so he could hear it better and commit it to memory. My voice got caught in my throat, not really being able to get it out, thinking: Why, for the first time in my 20 years on this planet, is my mouth not following what my brain wants it to?’
A photo from a past photoshoot has been added to the gallery. Make sure to check it out!

Chalamet’s meteoric rise, following a year in which Hollywood was tipped on its head, makes him one of the most interesting young men of 2018; remaining a powerful ally to the LGBT community, being vocal when men three times his age are silent; becoming the youngest Best Actor nominee at the Oscars since 1944 and knowing all the lyrics to Bodak Yellow. All of which we’ll get to, just as soon as he’s back from the doctors.
“Please, don’t hate me,” he says, in his car, during one of our conversations. We’ve been talking about the best bagels in New York – Tompkins Square Bagels, FYI – when Chalamet breaks the news that he needs to go for a physical. Like, now. “Are you going to kill me? I won’t be long! Promise. I’m really looking forward to continuing our cross-pond conversation. I mean it.”
A week later. It’s late. My phone rings. “Umm, hey,” he says. “I thought you might be asleep by now. No, I’m kidding. So, I have a good bill of health… I was getting a kind of regimen in order for a project. Just getting a bit of a head start. I’m back, so ask me anything.”
Anything? OK, what’s on his reading list at the moment? He thinks. “Hmm. What can I not put down… hang on.” He sets the phone aside and I can hear his footsteps thump around the house. “Hello? I have one. It’s called Turn Up The Heat: Unlock The Fat-Burning Power Of Your Metabolism.”
