Timothée Chalamet on the role of the artist in a time of social unrest and how sci-fi futures can explain the world around us

For Document’s Fall/Winter 2020 issue, he reunites with photographer Hedi Slimane six years after their first shoot and joins Document in conversation about our complicated present

Elio sighs and looks off into the distance, dispassionately turning the peach in his hand until, with a furtive glance, he pushes a finger through its ripe center, causing juice to run down his bare torso. His unfocused gaze makes it clear that his mind is elsewhere as he continues to pry it open, and, sliding the fruit against his skin, slowly guides it into his pants—and fucks it. Elio’s lust turns to shame when his lover Oliver, having found him asleep with the battered peach by his bedside, discovers what he has done. “I’m sick, aren’t I?” Elio asks, desperate and embarrassed by the heights of his desire. Oliver observes Elio with amusement, grinning deviously before he takes the peach into his hand, plunges his own finger into the hole, and brings it to his lips to taste what has been left behind.

This was the world’s introduction to Timothée Chalamet, whose breakout role as Elio in Luca Guadagnino’s 2017 film Call Me By Your Name skyrocketed him into the spotlight, earning him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. The awkward sensuality of the scene—Elio’s misplaced longing, his sudden arousal and clandestine exploration—could have been merely shocking in less capable hands, yet Chalamet’s performance renders the moment one of poignant erotic angst, charged with all the raw vulnerability and absurdity of adolescent desire.

The Arrival of Timothée Chalamet

GQ – Every once in the rarest while, a young actor shows up in a movie like an alien—anonymous and yet in possession of such preternatural talent that audiences start thinking about the actor’s future not in years but in decades. Call Me by Your Name’s Timothée Chalamet is just such an alien, and just such a once-in-a-generation talent.

The artistry of filmmaking has always preoccupied Timothée Chalamet. Fittingly, the quality of the craft is more than apparent in his first major leading role, Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name. To prepare for being on set, Chalamet has long immersed himself in complex cinema— movies like critically-acclaimed Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan’s I Killed My Mother. Here, Chalamet and Dolan meet up in Paris to discuss Chalamet’s creative sights for the future, his relationship with Armie Hammer, and the realities of love and pain.

XD When I saw Call Me By Your Name, I had the feeling I knew you. Although I guess that’s what movies are trying to achieve: To connect us, strangers, and make us feel that we know the characters we’re presented.

TC Absolutely. I’ve been the biggest fan of your work for years. You direct films that make really strong, clear choices…the moment, in Mommy, when the actor opens up the aspect ratio—wait, I don’t want to ruin it!

“Elio, Elio, Elio,” hums Timothée Chalamet’s character in Luca Guadagnino’s romantic dreamscape Call Me By Your Name. Over the course of a fleeting yet formative summer in early 1980s Italy, Elio falls in love with an older visiting houseguest, Oliver (Armie Hammer). Based on André Aciman’s beautiful novel of the same name, the film illustrates a narrative of grueling desire and devastating passion. Chalamet also stars in Greta Gerwig’s lauded directorial debut, Lady Bird. As the youngest Oscar nominee for Best Actor in nearly 80 years, Chalamet is redefining the role of the leading man. And, as Frank Ocean finds out, Chalamet isn’t afraid of failure.

FRANK OCEAN Hello? This Timothée?

TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET Yeah, man. This is so exciting. It is an honor to speak to you, man. I’m such a huge fan. This is going to be a real test to keep my voice level and keep this as normal of a conversation as possible [laughs].

Timothée Covers GQ Style

Sunday, Sep 17, 2017

Meet the two new cover stars of GQ Style‘s latest issue. As the leading men of the critically acclaimed Call Me By Your Name, an intoxicating and tender love story set in the luscious countryside of northern Italy, Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer are two names you’ll be hearing plenty come awards season.
GQ – See the dual covers and get a preview of their interview below, then read the full feature in GQ Style Issue 25, arriving on newsstands Thursday 21 September.

Timothée Chalamet on filming the infamous peach scene…
“I remember eating a peach maybe a week after that scene and thinking, ‘Oh, we did a scene with this fruit.’ I didn’t have it to the degree I do now but just from flicking around online, that’s the scene that’s consistently highlighted itself. It’s funny because now I’m about as aware of that as I could be. When we were shooting that scene, you know, sometimes I really would forget that the camera was there. By the time we did that scene it was almost like an out of body experience.”

On the difference between formulating sexual chemistry on screen with a man versus a woman…
Armie: “I don’t really feel that there’s much of a difference. Trying to create chemistry with a human is trying to create chemistry with a human. It’s about taking it off of yourself and reading them and taking what they’re giving you and allowing it to affect you. It’s about being so close and intimate with someone that you can detect those subtle changes that allow you to go on this sort of subtle dance.”

Timothée: “I almost think the chemistry, as opposed to the physical mechanics of the actual kissing or sex scene, is more palpable in the lack of contact.”

The Autumn/Winter 2017 issue of GQ Style is available on newsstands and to download from Thursday 21 September.
