Timothy Shalamet puts the rumors to rest.
The Dune actor revealed paparazzi photos that sparked headlines around the world last year, showing him kissing then-girlfriend Lily-Rose Depp. The two, who had just finished promoting their film The King at the Venice Film Festival, were filmed boating in a boat in Capri, Italy.
There were different theories about the photos (mostly that they were a PR setting), but Chalamet set the record directly in a GQ profile posted on Thursday.
“I went to bed that night, thinking it was one of the best days of my life,” the star said. “Call me by your name.” “I was on this boat all day with someone I really loved, and when I closed my eyes, I was like, no doubt, ‘That was great. “
“And then I wake up from all these pictures and I feel embarrassed, and it looks real nob? everything Pale? he continued. “And then people are like, ‘This is a PR stunt.’
“PR cascade ?!exclaimed Chalomet. “Do you think that I would like to look like that in front of all of you ?! ”
Chalamet and Depp, the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, have been dating for more than a year and have maintained a very personal relationship, but have since separated.
Earlier, Shalamet spoke about his reluctance to meet – especially the word “date”.
“The date is a very scary word, because then this context is established,” the actor told W Magazine in 2018. “You can always see people behaving early.”
Since breaking up with Depp, Shalamet has been spotted kissing and comforting his colleague Aiza Gonzalez in June.
We may soon hear Chalamet’s behind-the-scenes photos of these photos.
