You know you've made it as an actor when there are shirts with your face on them for sale on the internet. Young Timothée Chalamet, just a humble 22-year-old who brings his mom to red carpet events, has reached that level of fandom, largely springing from his unforgettable role in Call Me by Your Name and his equally enthralling performance in Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird. So when Vogue brought to my attention that a plethora of Timmy-themed items exist online, my own frantic search began.
Actress and director Zoe Lister-Jones even created a "Chalamet and Chill" t-shirt with all proceeds going to Planned Parenthood. "I created the tee because I literally couldn't have a conversation with a girlfriend without them bringing up Chalamet. It was an epidemic," she said. An epidemic indeed. The hair, the sideways smile, the brooding look, and damn, those acting chops - many are likening Timothée to Leonardo DiCaprio, and it's easy to see why. Join me as I board the Timothée train and browse the hilarious and completely necessary merch ahead.
