Childhood and education
Timothée Hal Chalamet was born in New York City on December 27, 1995, and raised in the federally subsidized artists' building Manhattan Plaza in Hell's Kitchen. Pauline Chalamet, his older sister, is an actress. Nicole Flender, his mother, is a third-generation New Yorker who is half Russian Jewish and half Austrian Jewish. Flender is a real estate broker with The Corcoran Group and a former Broadway dancer. She has a bachelor's degree in French from Yale University and has taught language and dance. Marc Chalamet, his French father, is an editor for the United Nations Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) and a former Le Parisien correspondent in New York. Marc is from Nîmes and comes from a Protestant Christian family. Timothée's paternal grandmother was originally from Canada and had moved to France. On his mother's side, he is the nephew of Rodman Flender and Amy Lippman, husband and wife filmmakers and producers.
Due to his French father, Chalamet is bilingual in English and French and holds dual citizenship in the United States and France. Chalamet spent his childhood summers in Le Chambon-sur-Lignon, a small French village two hours outside of Lyon, at the home of his paternal grandparents. He stated that his time in France caused him to struggle with cross-cultural identity issues. Chalamet attended PS 87 William T. Sherman School for elementary school and later the selective Delta program at MS 54 Booker T. Washington Middle School, which he described as miserable due to the school's academically rigorous environment. Heath Ledger's performance in The Dark Knight (2008) influenced him to pursue a career as an actor. He submitted an application to Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music, Art, and Performing Arts. His acceptance into the school represented a watershed moment in his appreciation for acting. His sophomore-year drama teacher at LaGuardia, Harry Shifman, was so impressed by his audition that he insisted on Chalamet's acceptance even though he had been rejected in the interview (due to his middle school record), saying, "I gave him the highest score I've ever given a kid auditioning." For a year in high school, Chalamet dated Madonna's daughter Lourdes ("Lola") Leon, a fellow student. He graduated in 2013 after appearing in school musicals as Emcee in Cabaret and Oscar Lindquist in Sweet Charity. He is also a YoungArts graduate.
Chalamet, then 17, attended Columbia University for a year after high school, majoring in cultural anthropology and living in Hartley Hall. He later transferred to New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study to pursue his acting career more freely, having struggled to fit in at Columbia immediately after filming Interstellar. Chalamet relocated to Concourse, Bronx, after leaving Columbia.
Early roles in a career (2008–2016)
Chalamet appeared in several commercials as a child and starred in two horror short films, Sweet Tooth and Clown, before making his television debut as a murder victim in an episode of the long-running police procedural series Law & Order (2009). He then had a small part in the television film Loving Leah (2009). In 2011, he made his Off-Broadway debut in the coming-of-age comedy The Talls, set in the 1970s, in which he played a sexually curious 12-year-old. "Chalamet hilariously captures a tween's awakening curiosities about sex," wrote the New York Daily News' chief theatre critic. In 2012, he had recurring roles in the drama series Royal Pains and the thriller series Homeland, where he played Finn Walden, the Vice President's rebellious son. Chalamet, along with the rest of the cast, was nominated for a SAG Award for Best Ensemble.
Chalamet made his feature film debut in 2014, playing a minor role in Jason Reitman's Men, Women, and Children. In the same year, he appeared in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar as Tom Cooper, the son of Matthew McConaughey's character. The film received favorable reviews from critics, who praised the cast's performances, and grossed more than $700 million worldwide. Chalamet also appeared as a supporting actor in Worst Friends, a comedy that had a limited theatrical release and received positive reviews. The following year, Chalamet co-starred in Andrew Droz Palermo's fantasy thriller One & Two, which premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival to mixed reviews before being released in limited theaters. In Pamela Romanowsky's The Adderall Diaries, he played the adolescent version of James Franco's character, Stephen Elliott. Chalamet's final role in 2015 was as Charlie Cooper, the sullen grandson of Diane Keaton and John Goodman's characters in the Christmas comedy Love the Coopers, which received mixed reviews.
Chalamet played Jim Quinn in the autobiographical play Prodigal Son at Manhattan Theatre Club in 2016. Chalamet was cast as a younger Shanley, a misfit Bronx kid in a prestigious New Hampshire prep school in 1963, by its playwright and director John Patrick Shanley and producer Scott Rudin. His performance was praised, and he received the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Play, as well as a Drama League Award nomination for Distinguished Performance. In Julia Hart's Miss Stevens, Chalamet played the troubled student Billy Mitman alongside Lily Rabe. According to The Hollywood Reporter's Stephen Farber, Chalamet's performance was "compelling" and "startling," with his character's speech from Death of a Salesman being among the best he has ever seen. The New York Times' Stephen Holden compared him to James Dean.
Make a name for yourself and rise to prominence (2017–2020)
After being attached to the project for three years, Chalamet starred in Luca Guadagnino's Call Me by Your Name, which was based on André Aciman's novel of the same name. The plot revolves around Elio Perlman, a young man living in Italy in the 1980s who falls in love with Oliver (Armie Hammer), a university student visiting his family. Chalamet studied Italian and learned to play the piano and guitar as part of his preparation. Call Me by Your Name premiered to critical acclaim at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, with critics praising Chalamet's performance in particular. Empire's Olly Richards stated, "In a film where every performance is excellent, Chalamet makes the others appear to be acting. He alone would make the movie worth seeing ". The Hollywood Reporter's Jon Frosch stated that no performance this year "felt as emotionally, physically, and intellectually alive," and included Chalamet on the magazine's list of the year's best performances. Time and The New York Times both included him on their lists. He received nominations for the Critics' Choice Movie Award, Golden Globe Award, SAG Award, BAFTA Award, and Academy Award for Best Actor. He won the Gotham Independent Film Award for Breakthrough Actor and the Independent Spirit Award for Best Male Lead. He is the third-youngest Academy Award nominee for Best Actor, and the youngest since 19-year-old Mickey Rooney in Babes in Arms in 1939.
In Elijah Bynum's directorial debut, Hot Summer Nights, Chalamet played Daniel, a gawky teenager who gets swept up in the drug-dealing business over the course of a summer. It received a limited theatrical release in 2018 and generated mixed reviews from critics, though Chalamet received praise from K. Austin Collins of Vanity Fair, who called the "sensitivity" in his performance "something special". Later that year, he played Kyle Scheible, a rich hipster in a band and Saoirse Ronan's character's love interest in Greta Gerwig's solo directorial debut, Lady Bird. The ensemble cast was praised by critics, with Ty Burr of The Boston Globe praising Chalamet's "hilarious" performance in particular. Chalamet co-starred with Christian Bale in Scott Cooper's western Hostiles as a young soldier named Philippe DeJardin.
Chalamet was elected to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 2018. Later that year, Chalamet starred in the drama Beautiful Boy as Nic Sheff, a teenager addicted to methamphetamine who has a strained relationship with his father, journalist David Sheff (played by Steve Carell). The film, directed by Felix Van Groeningen, is based on two memoirs: the elder Sheff's memoir of the same name and Nic Sheff's Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines. Variety's Owen Glieberman compared Chalamet's performance to that of James Dean in Call Me by Your Name, stating that "Nic, in his muffled millennial James Dean way, skittery and self-involved" is a departure from the "marvelous directness" he displayed in the role of Elio Perlman. He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, and BAFTAs.
At the 2019 Busan International Film Festival, Chalamet will be promoting The King.
Chalamet starred in Woody Allen's romantic comedy A Rainy Day in New York the following year. The Me Too movement prompted a resurgence of Allen's 1992 sexual abuse allegation. Chalamet claimed he couldn't answer questions about working with Allen because of contractual obligations, but the Huffington Post obtained a copy of his contract, which contradicted this. Chalamet did not promote the film and instead donated his salary to the charities Time's Up, LGBT Center of New York, and RAINN. In his 2020 memoir Apropos of Nothing, Allen claimed that Chalamet told Allen's sister Letty Aronson that he only denounced him to increase his chances of winning an Academy Award for Call Me by Your Name. In David Michôd's Netflix period drama The King, based on several plays from Shakespeare's Henriad, Chalamet played Henry V of England, a young prince who unwittingly ascends to the English Throne. "Chalamet does robust work, straightening his lanky posture as he goes, rising up into the role like a man ascendant," wrote Richard Lawson of Vanity Fair. In Little Women, an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's novel of the same name, Chalamet played Theodore "Laurie" Laurence, a lovestruck adolescent. The film, his second collaboration with Gerwig and Ronan, was praised by critics, two of whom—Peter Travers of Rolling Stone and Ann Hornaday of The Washington Post—also praised Chalamet's performance, with Travers noting the actor's "innate charm and poignant vulnerability," and Hornaday praising his "languidly graceful" performance and its "playful physicality." In 2020, Chalamet will host an episode of the sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live.

Chalamet starred as a student revolutionary in Wes Anderson's ensemble comedy-drama The French Dispatch in 2021. The film had its world premiere at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival and received favorable reviews. Anderson wrote the part specifically for Chalamet. He was "perfectly attuned to Anderson's highly specified wavelength," according to Paste Magazine's Brianna Zigler. Denis Villeneuve's film adaptation of the science fiction novel Dune, which premiered at the 78th Venice International Film Festival, starred Chalamet as the main character Paul Atreides. According to Villeneuve, Chalamet was his only choice for the role because "I needed that for the audience to believe this young man will be able to lead a whole planet." Dune received positive reviews with The Hollywood Reporter's David Rooney praising his "magnetic pensiveness gives the coming-of-age element some heart" and Lewis Knight of Daily Mirror writing that "Timothée Chalamet completes his ascension to Hollywood leading man status". Dune grossed more than $400 million worldwide, becoming his highest-grossing release. Chalamet played a skater punk in Adam McKay's Netflix ensemble comedy film Don't Look Up, his final role of the year. Critics had mixed feelings about it. The Los Angeles Times' Justin Chang described Chalamet as "sweetly sincere" in his small role. The film's ensemble cast was nominated for a SAG Award.
Chalamet reteamed with Guadagnino in the road movie Bones and All (2022), co-starring with Taylor Russell as cannibal drifters. The project was his first foray into production, and he credited Guadagnino with guiding him through the process. The 79th Venice International Film Festival saw the world premiere of Bones and All. Leila Latif of IndieWire praised the chemistry between Chalamet and Russell and took note of his "near-peerless ability to gently weep", and Jon Frosch of The Hollywood Reporter added that "Chalamet reminded us why he's the best actor of his generation". The following year, he provided the voice for the Netflix adult animated musical special Entergalactic.
Chalamet will next appear as Paul Atreides in the Dune sequel, Dune: Part Two, and as Willy Wonka in the Paul King-directed musical film Wonka.

He was named to Forbes' 30 Under 30 Hollywood & Entertainment list in 2018.
Chalamet has been dubbed a sex symbol and a fashion icon by the media, with his hair, jawline, and androgynous appearance highlighted as trademarks. Vogue named him the most influential man in fashion in 2019, and credits him for continuing "to ply the boundary between traditional masculinity and femininity", writing "those fashion choices are all the more impressive considering that Chalamet styles himself". GQ named him the best-dressed man in the world in 2020.

At the 94th Academy Awards, Chalamet wore a sequined Louis Vuitton jacket from Nicolas Ghesquière's womenswear collection without a shirt; W declared that he had "rewritten the gentleman's Oscar dress code for good", highlighting the boundary-pushing outfit that "blurred the lines of fashion's traditional gender divide". In 2022, Chalamet was the first solo male to appear on the cover of British Vogue's October print edition, becoming the magazine's first solo male to do so.
Chalamet divides his time between New York and California in his personal life. Despite widespread media coverage and public interest, he rarely speaks about his personal life.
