Timothée Chalamet is a remarkable young actor. He’s 22 years old, and already gets to be called an Oscar-nominated star — for the rest of his life! And if you’re thinking that what he pulled off with his performance in Call Me by Your Name is anything short of extraordinary, think of it this way: He is the youngest person nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor since Mickey Rooney for Babes in Arms in 1939; the third youngest nominee in category history.
That’s why it’s so shocking to think that he’s actually BOMBED auditions — on multiple occasions, no less. He told V Man magazine, “I was up for bigger, more commercial projects, but I didn’t get them. They just didn’t choose me, and it’s been gratifying, coming from more of a place of artistry and not just pure exposure.”
We agree — Timmy didn’t need any of those projects. Nevertheless, we can’t help but look at the what-could’ve-beens, you know?
