Timothée Chalamet he just walked the 2022 Oscars carpet shirtless and we need a second to breathe. Twenty-six years old, star of DunesDenis Villeneuve’s blockbuster, launched when he was only 21 years old Call me by your name by Luca Guadagnino, is today among the most loved American stars. So much so that, as the Guardiannow we talk about Chalamania. Modern version of the DiCapriomania of which adolescents were the victim when in 1997 it came out Titanic with the then 23 year old Leonardo DiCaprio. “So good to go crazy, DiCaprio mania explodes,” he wrote Republic in March 1998.
Today is the time of Timothée obsession. Exploded thanks to the splendid interpretation of Timothée in Call Me by Your Name. with which it became the youngest Oscar nominated in the past 80 years. Then many other important films came to keep it alive: Lady Bird, Hot Summer Nights, Beautiful Boy, The King, Little Women… But he keeps his feet firmly planted on the ground: «I don’t know how all this is possible, it’s absurd. I am grateful to be able to work and to being able to pay my bills by myself»He said a few years ago. He hasn’t won the Oscar yet, but he has already taken home dozens of awards, including the one for the biggest star of tomorrow. Where does she keep them? “My mother has them, she put them on next to the trophies won as a kid with sports competitions, when I dreamed of becoming a footballer. In practice, now, they are of him, “said with a laugh the French-American actor who virtually received from DiCaprio the scepter of the new promise of cinema.
Timothée has a lot in common with his predecessor. Handsome, androgynous, talented, he is an irresistible mix of mystery, innocence and sensuality. All bonuses, when it comes to winning the hearts of teenagers (and not only). Son of a reporter French who works for the United Nations and of a former American dancerA bilingual since he was born, Chalamet dropped out of Columbia University to be a full-time actor. Not even DiCaprio liked to study: the Oscar winner doesn’t even have a diploma in his pocket. Another point of contact: they both started from the TV series. Both, after the film that consecrated them, have never stopped.
But while 20-year-old DiCaprio flirted with (almost) every supermodel of the time (from Bridget Hall to Naomi Campbell to Helena Christensen), the heartthrob Timothée (even coworkers like Jennifer Lawrence have admitted they have a crush on him) seems more prone to lasting loves. From 2013 to 2017 he was engaged to Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes Maria Cicconehis classmate at the The Guardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. Then it came into her life Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis. The two fell in love in 2018 on the set of The King. In 2020 the news of the break. The future? we’ll see
