It’s hard being a skinny white boy. You have to wait your turn to be white boy of the month. No matter how many workout videos you post, they still call you “skinny.” And when it all comes down to it, you’re still just Timothée Chalamet to them. Spider-Man: Far From Home’s Tom Holland has sort of broken the mold by solidifying himself as “the one who can’t keep a secret” and not “the one from New York” (Ansel Elgort and Lucas Hedges can fight for that title). But Holland still can’t escape Timothée Chalamet’s curse. While on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Holland talked about how his 20-year-old brother, Sam, was afflicted while on vacation.
“This girl walks into the sea, she’s gorgeous, she’s walking over,” Holland sets it up. “She breezes right past me. Hello? And she goes over to Sam and goes ‘Oh, my God, are you Timothée Chalamet? And he was like ‘Yes.’”
It’s an epidemic. You don’t even have to have the right accent to be Timothée Chalamet. But since this is how these things go, here’s Sam Holland to obsess over. We’ll pencil him in for August’s WBotM.
