Timothee Chalamet was really conflicted about what to do in the wake of the death of George Floyd in the month of May of this year, so he joined the protests against the systematic racism and police brutality. The 24 years old Chalamet told GQ in a cover story that is published on Thursday that he marched with hundreds of people in Los Angeles, but it is said that it was important for him to remain anonymous.
He said that he wanted to shed his privilege and fame and do what he felt right by being there in the moment with the fellow protestors calling for justice. Chalamet told GQ that with a mask, a hood, a hat, and glasses, his face is deleted, and he is literally presenting a physical form. He added that people might find it disingenuous, but he found it really grounding. It was like he do not feel out of place, and yet he has not been in a crowd like this for years.

The star of Call Me by Your Name said that he has struggled with sharing his participation on social media platforms, worrying posts on social media as he has almost 10 M followers on Instagram would make the protests about him when he wanted to center the voices at the heart of the movement.
He said that he would ask his friends if they felt good after a day of protests, and if they do, is it a good thing to feel good, or does that mean that they are doing it for the wrong reasons? He added further and asked how much does he wants to put on social media. Is it a virtue signal to put it on the social media platform? But there is one thing, all of the social media is performative, right?
He, who has always been private about his love life, also opened up about Lily-Rose Depp, his ex. A photo was taken by Paparazzi of he and Depp kissing on a boat while the two were out vacationing on an island in Italy. The photo of them then went viral and served as a meme material for all the memers and the meme lovers out there.
