Oh! I forgot TC was in that meteor movie Don’t Look Up and it was then that I sort of “got” him. He played that stoner slacker dude and seemed so at ease in that part I wondered if that is what he’s really like irl.
I haven’t watched that film but he totally act like a young and thin “dude” and nothing more! That’s why he seemed so wrong in Little Women and The French Dispatch! Lol
It’s so funny because he has this image of arty feminine and sensitive kid with a kinda slightly ambiguous sexuality but then you see him acting and he is just a young dude! It’s hysterical!
Anyway this tweet made me laugh so I actually checked which would be Cash age today and he would be just 100! I mean obviously they would be wrong but I wondered for how much! 😉

TC and celebrities like him have been created by the industry itself. Be pretentious, be awarded. What's even worse to me is the fandom behind such celebrities. It's the typical ''you have said something negative about my fav celebrity and because I'm immature & ignorant in every sense of the word I will retaliate by insulting you in the most childish way'' behaviour of such fandoms.
Compared to BC, he has a really flat bum. Just pointing that truth out.
ANYWAY, having the absolute luck (could be considered good luck or could be considered bad luck - seems this depeneds on who you talk to) of never having seen him in anything yet, can I just say that I am soooo glad that I was his age long before social media became a thing, so all the drivel that came out of my mouth has been long forgotten?
Well, honestly, drivel still comes out of my mouth, but I am now old enough that I can't remember I said it, so my anxiety brain doesn't randomly wake me up at night cringing at it.
ETA: And, my niece and I were talking about crap like this (she is this guy's age) and she said something like "Auntie, you are so wise! You don't seem that old!" And, I could only respond with "well, I have this painting in the attic." And, while she didn't get it, my own Aunt and Uncle did.
The quote comes from a magazine article not social media and TBF journalists also have an input on those profiles so it could be something out of context and misinterpreted but normally that’s his act (see also the comic book DiCaprio’s quote. The difference is that DiCaprio is a real movie star who makes money only with his name meanwhile even Chalamet needs franchises with his name on it. Some would say that Dune is a “serious” franchise. Cool but it’s still a franchise. The same with the umpteenth version of Willy Wonka).
I think the main issue is the extremely nasty reaction by his fans. If you don’t agreed with her, cool but just ignore her. They are behaving horribly and, like most people in social media, acting like they were the victims meanwhile bullying the heretic!
Also “Stephanie” is a female name! I think probably they aren’t English speakers and very young (a lot of ageism there!). There was one talking about her menopause but well, she knew the critic is female. She was equally stupid which it’s worse because she should knew better!
EDITED I first read a few tweets that mentioned “toxic masculinity” and something about she hating his style but I didn’t understood they thought she was Johnny Cash until someone told them “he” was a “she” and that the guy in the photo was Johnny Cash! Lol
It's silly because usually Hollywood "training" was seen as some kind of msnufacting. Yes, dancing anf fighting classes (something you also could learn in theatre schools) but also make overs and the cultivation of an "image". Something that, of course, Tom Cruise was part of! It was considered something fake and ugly sometimes even destructive (Judy Garland?) and discriminatory (Rock Hudson? Or, why not? Tom Cruise threatening anyone who suggested he was gay?) but, according to those comments, it's now something admirable! Very probably, those commenters and Chalamet doesn't know the context, tho. A lot of ignorance everywhere!
On the other hand, trained theatre actors, who does the work without being so "fake" like old Hollywood stars, aren't very cool, doesn't? But probably that's why they are always in high demand
