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.

New interview + Dorian awards

There’s a new interview with Timmy and Saoirse Ronan in The New York Times. Be sure to check it out. You can read some excerpts below and see a few images in the gallery.

Timothée and ‘Call Me By Your Name’ also did well at the Dorian awards, winning Best Movie, Best Actor and the Rising Star awards.

Favorite coming-of-age films. Go!

TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET The one that took hold of me was a book, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” which was made into a movie later. It’s written in a way that only a young person could speak. And the unabashed lostness of the protagonist …

TC When you get to act in things as good as “Lady Bird” or “Call Me by Your Name,” you’ve got a huge responsibility to do them truthfully. So that young people watching can say, “I see myself on that screen!” What if I can’t do it?

New articles + Late Late Show images

There are couple new interviews out by Vanity Fair and Film School Rejects, so check those out. Some excerpts below, as usual. I have also updated the gallery with images from The Late Late Show with James Corden a few photoshoots.

In many ways, the depth of the film’s love story depends on Chalamet’s ability to convey an unpredictable stream of teenage emotions—restlessness, lust, sensitivity, surliness—as his relationship with Hammer’s character blooms. When Guadagnino (I Am Love, A Bigger Splash) first heard of Chalamet—from agent Brian Swardstrom—the filmmaker had already spent seven years trying to get an adaptation off the ground. Chalamet, who was 17 when he met Guadagnino, had just wrapped a recurring role on Showtime’s Homeland as Finn Walden, the troublemaker son of the vice president (Jamey Sheridan). But it wasn’t the actor’s résumé that impressed Guadagnino when they met for breakfast.

“I saw an incredibly articulate, bright, smart, artistically ambitious young man, someone who not only had a sense of self that was completely un-narcissistic but had ambition to make sure his art as an actor was shining on-screen,” Guadagnino said. Vanity Fair

Can you please tell me about your sleepover parties with James Ivory?

He’s a giant of cinema. Howard’s End, The Remains of the Day, A Room with a View, Maurice. There was a night I stayed with him and we watched Maurice together. He kind of dissected the film for me and drew out the similarities between that film and Call Me By Your Name. It would be a treat for any actor, but especially for a young actor to be around such a pioneer of filmmaking with that Merchant/Ivory catalog. Film School Rejects
