In a revealing interview, Timothée Chalamet offers insights into his life and thoughts. He muses on the contrast between his escalating fame and the ordinary milestones of his peers, such as marriage and parenthood, prompting self-reflection on life’s changes.
Throughout his six-year ascent in the spotlight, Chalamet acknowledges the importance of his growing fan base, but balances this with a yearning for personal privacy.
The interview shifts focus when Chalamet addresses the controversy surrounding his ex-colleague Armie Hammer, describing the experience as confusing. He shares his surprise at the timing of the scandal, which coincided with their project, ”Bones and All”.
Chalamet also comments on the sensationalism and clickbait nature often associated with such allegations.
A notable part of the conversation is Chalamet‘s interaction with Tom Cruise. After the release of ”Dune”, Cruise reached out to Chalamet with advice and contacts for stunt training. Chalamet recalls Cruise’s message, which emphasized the importance of self-discipline in modern Hollywood and likened it to a call to arms.
