Timothée Chalamet è innegabilmente una delle giovani star più brillanti di Hollywood, il che significa che è stato costretto a imparare ad affrontare l’essere famoso. Perdere l’anonimato è qualcosa di cui l’attore ha parlato nel dicembre 2018 mentre parlava con la collega Emma Stone durante una conversazione per Variety. Riferendosi al fatto che ora è una figura riconoscibile, ha spiegato: “Non è davvero opprimente o drammatico in alcun modo, a dire il vero. La gente mi ha visto, ma non è stato davvero pazzo. … Ho scelto ‘Spider- Amico” e quelle cose, e non le ho ricevute. Quelle sono preconfezionate, sarai famoso dopo questo genere di cose. “Chiamami col tuo nome” e “Lady Bird”, erano davvero” t… Penso che questo sia ciò che mi aiuta quando vengo fermato: si tratta di film”.
Of course, Chalamet's star has continued to rise. That's why he talked again about fame during an October 2021 interview, telling Time, "I'm figuring it out. On my worst days, I feel a tension in figuring it out. But on my best days, I feel like I'm growing right on time." Granted, that may or may not have factored in the pressure that comes with social media.
Although some celebs refuse to use social media and others can't seem to stay away, Chalamet is the kind of person who partakes but is wary of the impact social media can have on our lives.
Timothée Chalamet says people are intensely judged on social media
If you're following Timothée Chalamet on social media, then you're certainly not alone. The actor has more than 2 million followers on Twitter alone. Of course, that's just a fraction of the 17.7 million people who follow him on Instagram. With that kind of focus aimed at him on the internet, it's no wonder that the star has some serious concerns about social media.
Chalamet shared his thoughts on social media during the Venice Film Festival while promoting his film, "Bones and All," mentioning that his character (who had lived in the 1980s) would have avoided the modern problem. He explained (via E! News): "To be young now and to be young whenever — I can only speak for my generation — is to be intensely judged. I can't imagine what it is to grow up without the onslaught of social media. And it was a relief to play characters who are wrestling with an internal dilemma absent the ability to go on Reddit or Twitter, Instagram or TikTok, and figure out where they fit in."
"Without casting judgment on that, you can find your tribe there, but I think it's tough to be alive now," Chalamet continued. "I think societal collapse is in the air — or it smells like it." Hopefully, this star's followers are on the nicer side, and society will keep rolling along.
