Timothée Chalamet's roles in critically-acclaimed films like "Call Me by Your Name" and "Lady Bird" have earned him plenty of recognition within the past year. He has previously starred alongside Matthew McConaughey and Ansel Elgort, and plays Steve Carell's son in his latest movie, "Beautiful Boy."
“甜茶“TimothéeChalamet在广受好评的两部电影——《以你的名字呼唤我》和《伯德小姐》中的角色，在过去的一年里为他赢得了很多的认可。他之前曾与马修·麦康纳（Matthew McConaughey）和安塞尔·埃尔格特（Ansel Elgort）合作过，并在他的最新电影《漂亮男孩》中饰演Steve Carell的儿子。
At this point, Chalamet's passionate fans are probably aware of the correct way to pronounce his first name (it's "Timo-tay," but he thinks it's "pretentious" to ask people to say his name that way). But there might be a few lesser-known details about the Oscar-nominated actor.
Here are five things you probably didn't know about Chalamet.
1.He was a mascot for his middle school basketball team because he didn’t make the cut to be a player.
He explained that being in a costume is hot, "but at halftime, you can take it off and just relax." He also joked that "if the whole acting thing doesn't work out," he's open to being a mascot again.
2.He went to high school with Ansel Elgort.
Chalamet and Elgort both grew up in New York City and attended LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and Performing Arts. According to Elgort, they played on the same basketball team and had the same teachers."No one disliked Timmy," Elgort added during an interview with MTV. "Some people disliked me."
3.The actor had a rap alter ego known as "Timmy Tim" or "Timmy T."
“甜茶“其实有说唱歌手的另一面，有人称他"Timmy Tim"或者"Timmy T."。
His most popular song involved statistics and was created during his high school days. The music video has since been popularized by Ellen DeGeneres, who questioned Chalamet about it during an appearance on her talk show in November 2017. According to Armie Hammer, Chalamet turned in the rap as part of an assignment and "the teacher only gave him a D+ or something."
4.Chalamet auditioned for the role of Peter Parker in "Spider-Man: Homecoming."
The role ultimately went to Tom Holland. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Chalamet said that he "read twice and I left sweating in a total panic" after auditioning. He also considered going back to audition again, but decided against it.
5.When he was 17 years old, he got cast in "Interstellar" and left his New York home to live alone in Canada as they filmed.
Chalamet explained to the Los Angeles Times that he didn't want to be accompanied by guardians while working on the movie. To avoid them tagging along, he found a California state law that said a person who has a high school degree and is more than 16 years old is legally allowed to travel alone, as long as the film's production company is based outside of the West Coast. "I just told my parents I was going alone," Chalamet said. "I've always felt like there was less creative space on sets with guardians. I just felt independent at a young age."
