As if overnight, Timothée Chalamet became known to every movie fan out there. This is not dumb luck, not a coincidence, but a well-deserved recognition for his amazing work.
Timothee’s acting career started quite early with some commercials and TV shows, and he eventually switched to movies. To polish his skills, the boy followed in his mother and sister’s footsteps and entered the LaGuardia High School of Music and Fine Arts. After college, Chalamet considered working full-time but was pushed to enroll at Columbia University. By the end of his first year, Timothee decided to drop out and move to the Bronx, where the rent was affordable for an aspiring actor. The young actor was eagerly waiting for the premiere of Interstellar, thinking that this movie could become his breakthrough, but it did not happen. A bit discouraged, the actor continued to do auditions and castings, but all he heard was “no” or “we’ll be in touch.”
Success came to Chalamet in 2017, when he starred with Armie Hammer in the love story “Call Me by Your Name” written by Luca Guadagnino, where he played a very dramatic role. Thanks to showing everyone that he’s got range, talent agencies finally realized Timothee was a real gem in the rough. As a result, “Call Me by Your Name” not only brought Chalamet an Oscar nomination but also made him one of Hollywood’s most wanted young actors.
A year later, Chalamet was back in the spotlight. The drama about drug addiction, Pretty Boy, is another confirmation that Chalamet is one of the most talented actors of his generation. The movie deals with happy memories of father and son as well as rehabilitation, relapses, and breakdowns. It’s an extremely realistic portrayal of addiction, and Chalamet nailed that role.
Timothee Chalamet is not just popular — he is also very smart and intelligent. The guy has a great understanding of cinema and chooses only the best scripts. In 2019, he worked with Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan in Little Women and appeared as Henry V in the King with Robert Pattinson and Lily-Rose Depp. And if you look at his confirmed future projects, you’ll see he’s been quite busy shooting the Dune sequel and Wonka.
Of course, Timothy’s acting skills are just one side of him as a person. The young New Yorker has something that keeps both men and women awake at night. And that’s his chiseled facial features. There’s even an Instagram account where his face is photoshopped into famous works of art. That’s how beautiful this guy looks. With a piercing gaze, cute curls, sharp features, and skin so fair even the British royalty would be jealous of, Chalamet is a perfect heartthrob.
Chalamet is also famous for his impeccable sense of style and love for fashion. Timothee has said more than once that he does not need a stylist, as his personal style is perfectly acceptable. In an interview for VMan magazine, Chalamet mentioned that Raf Simons, Haider Ackermann, and Edi Slimane had been his favorite designers for a long time. He even called them “real artists.”
Now Timothee is preparing for new roles and challenges. We all know that after Dune 2, there will inevitably be Dune 3. And there are some rumors spreading around about either Marvel or DC snatching him for one of their upcoming blockbusters. Whatever the future holds for Timothee, he is far from being done, and we’ll see what he is capable of.
