When Chalamet first stepped in front of Hedi Slimane’s lens in 2014, he was all but unknown—the lanky, 17-year-old blueprint of the star he was to become. Today, Chalamet is one of the most recognizable faces in cinema, with projects running the gamut from period dramas to sci-fi epics. In David Michôd’s The King, he was the reluctant heir to the English throne; in Greta Gerwig’s remake of Little Women, he breathed life into the boyish, lovesick Laurie, while her solo directorial debut, Lady Bird, saw him assume the ostentatiously suave posture of the dirtbag boyfriend; and in Felix Van Groeningen’s biographical drama Beautiful Boy, he depicted the emotional turbulence of a teenage meth and heroin addict’s painful path towards recovery—one that feels all the more heart-wrenching in the midst of America’s opioid crisis.
In the years since his rapid ascent, Chalamet has made a point to establish himself as an artist first and foremost, taking on unconventional roles in independent projects. But when he and Slimane reunited in Saint-Tropez, Chalamet had just emerged from shooting his first major studio film, Denis Villeneuve’s reboot of the sci-fi epic Dune, a story that has renewed relevance in our political moment. “The battle of tribes and cultures [in Dune] is unfortunately extremely pertinent to the world today,” Chalamet tells Document. “I think there are many contemporary parallels with the world we live in.”
