I remember when people used to say that getting the cover of Time was the kiss of death for a rising actor's career because it smacked of hubris. Perhaps it's not so true anymore as so many fewer people read Time.

Since that's my type, I fell in love with the character of Elio long before CMBYN became a movie. Also, I've studied Italian.

When the movie version came along, I thought Timmy was absolutely perfect as Elio (Armie not so much; I'd pictured Aaron Tveit as I read the book). And I have never had any reason to change my mind about Tim O' Tay.

I don't care if the DL hive mind hates him. I can't think of another actor his age I like as much. The last actor I liked this much was Jake Gyllenhaal.

A lot of people in the industry who make it big at his age are obnoxiously ambitious, though they may not all be assholes. It's pretty hard to reach the top without having sharp elbows.

R23, what bothers me more regarding the article is that in an effort to "soften Tim's rough edges" they have dropped one of the things I liked the most about him, which is that he's very big on racial justice in US society. Timothee has always been very vocal defending the rights and contributions of the black community, from the people he hangs out with, his friends, to the books he reads, the people he works with, the music he listens to and the designers he wears.

All has been whitewashed to make him more palatable to a mainly mainstream white population in middle America; only mentioning his environmental credentials lest he came across too much as a 'n***** lover'

It is a big step backwards and I wonder if Tim himself has noticed or he's just going to let it slide.

by Anonymousreply 53October 16, 2021 11:31 AM

R53 This seems like a paranoid perception that white Americans are majority racist and use the N word to describe people. White Americans love so many black actors, singers rappers, performers, musicians, sports stars, journalists, talk show hosts and politicians. These people hardly need defending by Timothee Chalamet. Many of them are way bigger than he is.

by Anonymousreply 54October 16, 2021 2:42 PM

R54, R55 as much I would love that to be true, the reality is that anti-black sentiment in the US (and elsewhere too) is pretty strong. Where have you been for the past 4 years? In fact, for the past 50 years. Police brutality is still rife, POC lose their lives because they are black/brown. The industrial prison complex is still going strong and I'm sure the average American when they see a random black man or black woman do not think of them as professors at university or doctors, or curators in museums, they think of them as criminals first, or uneducated people or poor people. And I know this by speaking to African Americans and finding out what they deal with in their everyday lives.

R76 And then tried to undo it all with his whining in GQ, which in itself didn't work as his entitled attitude in that profile just made him come across even worse. But just in case it is true that the Cabo photos embarrass him - here's a few of them. It's also funny how quickly his boner went down - he actually must've shot his load in his shorts.

I do find it interesting that there's still been a string of pap photos of him in NYC. You'd think an actor who actually wanted to avoid that would walk around wearing a mask. Funny how the paps manage to find the spots where he stands perfectly still. What a coincidence.

TimoTay, in the interview on GQ, complains of his embarrassment for the photos of Capri. But it always struck me as odd that he never referred to the Cabo stunt. Why? In terms of exaggeration, Cabo far surpassed Capri (kisses with the guitar, sex in the pool, photos on the beach and then a walk in Los Angeles). The assumptions I have made about it are different. 1- At first I thought it was an invasion of privacy, or that it was only the responsibility of Eiza who had called the paparazzi, but then on reflection it seemed to me that it could very well be a stunt agreed by both her and him to attract the attention in a time like the pandemic where the film industry was stuck. 2- If there are photos it is clear that there is also a video (especially of the sex pool) but perhaps they have managed to block it or have agreed not to disclose it. 3- At first I liked TimoTay but I begin to consider him an attention whore; maybe he doesn't talk about Cabo in GQ because it burns him even more than Capri.

His social silence after Cabo's stunt over the summer of last year was a simple damage control strategy. Maybe he hadn't foreseen the furious reaction of his stans.
