Timothee Chalamet has been a busy little bee in these recent times. From switching roles in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune to the intensely character-driven story in Bones & All (2022), the star had been off of social media in preparation for his role. Stating in the press conference for Bones & All, the young actor shared how “societal collapse is near” since people have been increasingly judgemental on social media.
Timothee Chalamet claims societal collapse is near
Timothee Chalamet will be seen in the upcoming book-to-movie adaptation of Bones and All (2022) where two star-crossed lovers travel through Ronald Raegan’s America (the 1980s). Also, both the leading characters are…cannibals. The movie is based on the book of the same name by author Camille DeAngelis (who is ironically a vegan!) and is helmed by Luca Guadagnino as its director.
At the Venice press conference of Bones and All, the 26-year-old actor got honest about the degree to which social media impacts us as a society.
“To be young now, and to be young whenever—I can only speak for my generation—is to be intensely judged. I can’t imagine what it is to grow up with the onslaught of social media, and it was a relief to play characters who are wrestling with an internal dilemma absent the ability to go on Reddit, or Twitter, Instagram or TikTok and figure out where they fit in.”
