The massive wave of attention does not seem to phase Chalamet. When asked by GQ if he could enjoy the pleasure of being adored by millions while knowing it could all go away in a heartbeat, the actor gave a gun-ho, "Fuck yeah!"
"While it's going on, I'm going to enjoy every second of this -- it sounds cheesy, but I think of myself as an actor third, an artist second, and a fan first," he said. "But I have genuine fear of having the inability to replicate this moment again."
Like so many heartthrobs, internet chatter is swirling over what Chalamet will do next. Already on the slate are Beautiful Boy, a drug addiction drama based on the memoir by David Sheff; co-starring alongside Selena Gomez in Woody Allen's A Rainy Day in New York (which, after sparking controversy, convinced Chalamet to donate his entire salary to Time's Up initiative); and a role as Henry V in the upcoming Netflix original movie, The King.
