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.
The actor also promised to donate funds from his work on the film to the LGBT Center in New York and RAINN, an anti-sexual violence organization.
Timothée Chalamet announced on Instagram Monday night that he will be donating his salary from his work on the upcoming Woody Allen film A Rainy Day in New York to three charities: Time’s Up, the LGBT Center in New York and RAINN, an anti-sexual violence organization.
“I have been asked in a few recent interviews about my decision to work on a film with Woody Allen last summer … What I can say is this: I don’t want to profit from my work on the film, and to that end, I am going to donate my entire salary,” Chalamet said in his statement.
Timothée attended the LA Film Critics Association awards yesterday and you can see images from that in the gallery. I also added some more images to some of the recent events galleries, thanks to our wonderful affiliate I Heart Saoirse and a photoshoot.
