Nobody panic but our dreams have finally come true. Dream baes Timothée Chalamet and Frank Ocean have now interacted. The two got together for an interview with V Magazine and it may not break the internet, but it definitely broke the innocent coffee cup we were holding on the subway this morning when we saw the news.
The entire interview is obviously required reading because when the powerhouses who made Call Me by Your Name and Blonde cultural landmarks with their talent get together, we should all scream, but here are three of our highlights.
When Timothée fangirled and recited Frank Ocean lyrics to Frank Ocean.
TC: “Dreaming a thought that could dream about a thought. / That could think of the dreamer that thought. / That could think of dreaming and getting a glimmer of God.”
FO: [Laughs.] Don’t do that.
Frank Ocean speaks in lyrical beauty outside of his music and is a Call Me by Your Name fangirl.
FO: I just finished Call Me By Your Name, the novel, yesterday, for more insight before we talked. It’s a really special role and an opportune, appropriate time right now in popular culture. I think it’s also good for you that this is your opening song. It’s such a proper foundation, to do roles like these that have so much heart and vulnerability in the very beginning, completely boutique or small, but on the lips of so many. Congratulations for the work and its effect and how it’s made people feel; it’s tremendous.
Frank Ocean loves the Call Me by Your Name soundtrack as much as we do—and might score a film one day.
FO: That [Call Me By Your Name] soundtrack is super good.
TC: We listened to Sufjan Stevens [included on the soundtrack] with Luca and Armie [Hammer] right before we started shooting—that was an experience, to listen to that and, like, hold each other after. It’s awesome to hear you say that about the soundtrack. You’ve got to score a movie.
FO: Yeah, one of these days.
