12 signs that prove Timothée Chalamet is an actual living, breathing angel


This is investigative journalism at its finest.

Timothée Chalamet became the breakout star of 2017. His film Call Me By Your Name not only scooped him a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the 2018 Academy Awards but, it firmly put his name in lights alerting us that he’s a force to be reckoned with.

And so, into 2018, Beautiful Boy was released, a heartbreaking film looking at drug addiction and how it can tear apart the most concrete of families, Timothée’s portrayal of Nic Sheff was not only harrowing but beautifully portrayed, scoring him a BAFTA nomination. And thankfully, if you love Timothée’s work even a pinch of the amount I do, you’ll be happy to know he’s set to return to our screens again this year when he’ll star in Little Women alongside Saoirse Ronan.

So, aside from the fact that he’s clearly a remarkable and capable actor, how do we know Timothée is actually an angel?

1. He’s got skin as smooth and clear as a baby’s bottom

I mean, literally flawless.

2. He speaks FLUENT French

Timothée is American-French. He spent his summers as a child in a small village near Lyon where he became so immersed in French, he even dreamt in the language. Hello!

3. He has the greatest grin

It’s contagious.

4. He brought his MOTHER as his Oscars date.

I wish we were making this up. He’s the Oxford definition of goals.

5. A fan sat beside him on a flight during the week and she couldn’t get over how nice he was… chatting to her for over an hour.

Angel, I tell you. A-N-G-E-L.

6. He’s 23.

And oh-so accomplished.

7. He went to the same school as Ansel Elgort

They both attended LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts known more locally as School of Living, Breathing Angels.

8. He gets on with Kanye

I mean, you’d have to be extra-terrestrial.

9. He’s also set to star in a movie with Selena Gomez

The pair are set to star in Woody Allen’s A Rainy Day In New York.

10. Tiomthée hung out with Shania Twain at Coachella last year

I mean, this lad is so well connected.

11. He prefers to be called Timmy

That’d be Timmo here in Dublin.

12. He’s apparently single

The last lucky lady Timothée was linked to was Lily-Rose Depp, however, it was never confirmed and so, we’re optimistic about his current status.

Living, breathing angel I tell you. We cannot wait to see what’s next for the star on the rise.
