‘I feel older than my years’: Timothée Chalamet describes himself as an ‘old soul’ and talks like a cannibal in new horror film Bones and All – as he becomes British Vogue’s first male cover star

Timothée Chalamet is candid about the “transition to a mature mindset” as his career skyrockets, admitting he’s an old soul.

The actor, 26, formed a storm before British Vogue when he became their first ever solo male cover star, fronting the magazine’s October issue.

And during the accompanying interview, the star also shared how he used his own experience to portray his cannibal lead character in the new horror film Bones and All.

Timothée became the first man in British Vogue’s 106-year history to scrape just the magazine’s cover, and he certainly looked the part.

Showing off his typically quirky sense of style, the Call Me By Your Name actor was dressed in leather pants and a matching waistband for one set of shots.

As he stared into the camera for his cover photo, his tousled dark brown locks were in an exaggerated curl — while he adorned with a pearl choker.

Editor-in-chief Edward Enninful described Timothée as “the modern man incarnate, as an actor and as a person” – admitting he was waiting for the right man to break the mold.

And while talking to Vogue for the landmark interview, Timothée explained how the Covid-19 pandemic changed his mindset: “I should have tried to get my grown feet under me a little earlier than I did.

“I found that I really, you know, had to be honest with myself that where I’ve been able to get myself in life, it was balls to the wall, like anything to [it] at a young age who miraculously brought me where I am. But to then switch to an adult mentality,” he explained.

The actor went on to say he feels his mentality is that of an ‘old man’, explaining: ‘The way I feel over 26 has always been something I’ve felt. It’s not like I feel like I’ve had a mental breakthrough that has given me perspective. The perspective that ‘old man’ feels, it feels like I was born with it.’

His latest film, Luca Guadagnino’s Bones and All, premiered earlier this month at the Venice Film Festival – for which Timothée looked ultra chic.

He stars alongside Taylor Russell, as the pair play Lee and Maren – cannibals who embark on a twisted love story.

And drawing on his own experience playing the character, the actor shared: “With Lee, the illusion of control is based on feelings for no one and not even interaction with anyone – with Lee’s affliction being cannibalism.”

And Vogue described his performance as “impeccably heartbreaking” when they shared the piece via Twitter, Vogue wrote: “@RealChalamet stars as cannibal bum Lee in Luca Guadagnino’s #BonesandAll.

“It’s a performance so heartbreaking, so tenderly gruesome, so violent and vulnerable, that it feels – as his work so often does – that he has carved a new generation of people.”
