Timothée Chalamet puts up gossip.
The actor “Dune” opened up about the pictures of the paparazzi who gave headlines around the world last year, showing him kissing his ex-girlfriend Lily-Rose Depp. The two, who had just finished promoting their film “The King” at the Venice Film Festival, were pictured in canoodling on a boat in Capri, Italy.
Various theories have floated about the photos (mostly a PR set up), but Chalamet set the record on a GQ profile published on Thursday.
“I was lying that night thinking it was one of the best days of my life,” the star said “Call Me by Your Name”. “I was in this boat all day with someone I really loved, and closing my eyes, I was like, indisputably, ‘That was great.'”
“And then waking up to all these pictures, and feeling shy, and it looks real nob? All pale? “he continued.” And then people were like: This is a PR stunt. ”
“A PR stunt ?!, ”Exclaimed Chalomet. “Do you think I want to look like that in front of you all ?! ”
Chalamet and Depp, the daughters of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, dated for more than a year and remained in a private relationship, but separated.
Chalamet has previously spoken about her reluctance to date – especially the word “date.”
“Date is a scary word, because that context has already been established,” the actor told W Magazine in 2018. “You can always see people in early behavior on the date.”
Since leaving Depp, Chalamet has noticed kissing and cozy with fellow actress Eiza González in June.
Maybe we’ll hear Chalamet’s background taking those photos soon.
