Timothée Talks with Variety

Timothee Chalamet on His Racy Sex Scene in ‘Call Me By Your Name’

VARIETY – “I wouldn’t be the actor I am without New York,” says Timothée Chalamet. The 21-year-old breakout star of three upcoming movies with Oscar buzz (“Call Me by Your Name,” “Lady Bird” and “Hostiles”) grew up in Hell’s Kitchen, graduated from LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, studied at both Columbia and NYU and now resides in the East Village. On his way to work these days, to shoot the (still untitled) Woody Allen movie starring Selena Gomez, he rides the subway instead of taking a chauffeured car.

Doesn’t anybody recognize him? “Not at all,” says Chalamet, who appeared in character parts in Showtime’s “Homeland” and “Interstellar.” But his anonymity is about to end with the release of Sony Pictures Classics’ “Call Me by Your Name,” which opens on Nov. 24. In Luca Guadagnino’s coming-of-age drama, Chalamet plays Elio, an American teenager in Italy who falls for an older man (Armie Hammer). Critics have been raving about the art-house film, comparing it to “Brokeback Mountain.” And Chalamet could be the youngest man to be nominated for a lead-actor Oscar since Mickey Rooney for 1939’s “Babes in Arms.”

He spoke to Variety about his career so far.
