Timothée Chalamet (pronounced “Timothy” not “Teem-oh-tay,” according to his close friend Ansel Elgort) was on The Tonight Show with Jimée Fallon on Wednesday and did a very standard “I’m new here” interview during which he charmed the socks off both Fallon and his audience by discussing his wide-eyed first experience at the Golden Globes on Sunday.
“I look out in the room and it’s all actors and directors I’ve admired for a long time, and then sometimes it’s like, my mouth is moving, like, ‘Oh...They’re listening to me right now. This is totally surreal. This is so strange.’”
He then expressed how wild it was to be in the same category as Gary Oldman (who, side note, was once accused assaulting his ex-wife with a phone) Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, and Daniel Day Lewis before adding:
“We got to talk to Angelina Jolie and talk to Jennifer Aniston right after. I was like, ‘Oh my, God! Which side are we on?’”
Oh, Timmy. Timmy, Timmy, Timmy. Now that you’re officially a real-life Hollywood star with some major award nominations under his belt, it’s time you learn something about the biz: When it comes to Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie, you have to pick a side.
The team you’re on will not make or break your career (it has nothing to do with your talent of course), but choosing one of them (you may not be neutral here) will help define your character as much as, say, a haircut or an interview demeanor. So what are you, Timmy? A floppy haired, affable Aniston? Or a floppy-haired, affable Jolie? Choose wisely.
Change of subject: Kendall Jenner has a message for all of you who think she—a model in 2018—works any less hard than models in the ’90s did when they were young. You know how she knows? Because she actually talked about it with a couple women, like Cindy Crawford, who has been doing this for a long time. A lot of people tell her that it must be “so much easier now because they have Instagram,” but that’s just not true. Jenner still had to go to all the castings, she still had to go to all the meetings, and all that stuff to get to where she is now. She didn’t get to skip a stop just because of social media. Jenner has 12-hour days. Sometimes she even has 24-hour days! She still has to do all those things.
Her full quote is below:
“We don’t work any less hard than the ’90s models did when they were young...I’ve actually talked about it with a couple of women, like Cindy Crawford, who have been doing this for a long time. A lot of people are like, ‘Oh, it’s so much easier now because you have Instagram. You don’t even need an agency anymore.’ But that’s just not true. I still had to go to all the castings, I still had to go meet all the photographers, I still had to do all of that to get to where I am now. There wasn’t a step taken out just because I had social media. I still have 12-hour days, I still have even 24-hour days sometimes; I still have to do all those things.”
I’m so happy.
