Timothée-Chalamet-GQ

Timothée Chalamet covers the new issue of GQ and talks about getting papped making out with Lily-Rose Depp on a boat last year (“I went to bed that night thinking that was one of the best days of my life. I was on this boat all day with someone I really loved, and closing my eyes, I was like, indisputably, ‘That was great.’ And then waking up to all these pictures, and feeling embarrassed, and looking like a real nob? All pale? And then people are like: ‘This is a P.R. stunt.’ A P.R. stunt?! Do you think I’d want to look like that in front of all of you?!”)

Ben Affleck explaining to Matt Damon what a “finsta” is took me out.

-AP interviewed The Way Back’s director Gavin O’Connor and star Ben Affleck, and they talked about how the actor had a breakdown when his character tries to make amends with his estranged wife. ” Said O’Connor: “It was probably the second take, Ben just had a breakdown. I’m getting chills thinking about it. It was like the dam broke and everything came out. I just remember the crew, everyone was frozen, watching him bear his soul. It was obviously real. A lot of things that he probably had to say in his own life, or maybe he had said, I don’t know.” The longer this press tour chugs along, the more I hope Affleck cleared all this talk with Jennifer Garner.
