Between Timothée Chalamet and social networks, it’s not a love story! The actor, starring in the drama “Bones and All”, spoke about the effects of these networks on his generation, revealing his very worried opinion on the subject.
As Variety reports, it was during the press conference for Bones and All of Luca Guadagninoin which he and his co-star Taylor Russell play the cannibalistic lovers, that Timothée Chalamet shared his thoughts on the social media world we live in.
Inspired by the fact that the feature film takes place in the 80s, the actor – who was able to enjoy a little respite from social networks during filming – spoke about some of their harmful effects. on his peers.
To be young now and to be young at all times – I can only speak for my generation – is to be intensely judged. I can’t imagine what it’s like growing up with the onslaught of social media and it was a relief to play characters in an internal dilemma without being able to go to Reddit, or Twitter, Instagram or TikTok and find where they fit in.
But that doesn’t mean Timothée Chalamet thinks social media is always a bad thing. “I don’t pass judgment”, he clarified. “You can find your tribe there.The actor continued, however.
I think it’s hard to be alive now. I think the collapse of society is in the air. That’s why I hope this movie will matter.
And the public seems conquered! Indeed, Bones and All, which just had its premiere in Venice, received an 8.5-minute standing ovation, the longest and most enthusiastic of the festival to date, beating Tara drama with Cate Blanchett who got a 6 minute standing ovation. As the crowd cheered “Luke! Lucas!”, the Italian director even shed a few tears.
Taylor Russell also shared Chalamet’s concern about the threat social media poses to children today.
“I have a little brother who is 19-20 years old, and to think of him in this world and the judgment of self and others that people seem so inundated with every day, in such a drastic and harsh way, is so frightening, because the hope is that you can find your own compass in all of this and it now seems like a difficult task”, said the actress.
Earlier asked what it was like to switch to such an intimate film between two episodes of the sci-fi epic Dunes of Denis VilleneuveTimothée Chalamet said he was happy to work with the director of Call Me By Your Name which launched his career.
“This story is about someone who is on a prophecy – on a path, and can’t get out of it.“said the comedian. “I was dying to work with Luca again to tell a story that was grounded, like the first story we told, but this time in the American Midwest, in the 80s, about disenfranchised people all possible ways.”
Luca Guadagnino, he saw no one other than the young actor to interpret this key role. “The second I read it, I said, I think only Timothy can play this role”, he said in an interview last year. “He’s fantastic, a great performer and to see him soar like he’s doing now, I’m proud of him. And this character is something very new for him, both endearing and heartbreaking.”
