Timothée Chalamet thinks there’s a lot more in the world to worry about than the paparazzi. The acclaimed actor is sharing what he thinks of all the attention he’s receiving under the spotlight.
Chalamet is one of the fastest rising stars in the film industry. He’s got an Academy Award nomination, a handful of acting accolades, highly-anticipated films under his belt at just 23 years old. Aside from that, his rumored PDA-packed relationship with actress Lily-Rose Depp has made him the main subject of the paparazzi’s lenses.
However, the actor doesn’t concern himself with all the unwanted attention from the paps. Chalamet spoke to ET about the matter at the premiere of his film The King in New York.
“…I would way rather [have] these kinds of stresses or anxieties than what am I going to get on my PSAT or SAT or ACT or whatever,” he told the outlet on Tuesday.
Indeed, Chalamet believes there are far more stressful things in life. As for what he thinks of being stalked by photographers the actor said:
“I don’t feel like it works that way as much. Those things exist, but — this is a bigger conversation. But with social media, everyone has a camera anywhere, so I wonder what the business model is, following someone around with a DSLR, but who knows?”
Chalamet and Depp have been snapped numerous times by paparazzi that doesn’t seem to phase them at all. When you’re two of the most in-demand young stars in Hollywood, there’s not much to complain about is there?
