Timothée Chalamet is giving us all the hot goss in a new tell-all interview.

In a recent GQ profile of the 27-year-old actor, Chalamet opened up about his private life and the cannibal accusations against his Call Me By Your Name costar Armie Hammer.

For those unfamiliar with the latter, Hammer found himself in the midst of some major controversy in 2021 after a woman detailed some of the gruesome and bizarre sexual interactions they had. She shared screenshots of Instagram DMs where he allegedly talked of rape fantasies, the desire to inflict pain on his partners, and even one where he reportedly said he was “100% a cannibal.”

As for Chalamet, he and director Luca Guadagnino filmed a cannibal movie called Bones and All in the spring and summer of 2021, where Chalamet played a cannibalistic character named Lee. His character wore the clothes of his victims in an act Chalamet described as “self-styling.”

This project coincided with allegations against Hammer, who played Chalamet’s love interest in Call Me By Your Name. When asked about the timing of the film alongside the accusations, Chalamet reflected on the strange period and said he felt like he needed to play the role because it was actually based on a book.

Regarding the allegations against Hammer, when asked if he had any personal experience with similar accusations, Chalamet reluctantly said, “I don’t know. These things end up getting clickbaited so intensely. Disorienting is a good word.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Chalamet addressed his relationship with Kylie Jenner and commented on the challenges of balancing his intense fandom with his private life, saying, “This reminds me of that recent South Park episode with the Worldwide Privacy Tour,” a reference to Harry and Meghan flying around in a private jet and appearing on a talk show to demand privacy. “Sometimes, people are going to be hella confused when you say you’re trying to live a private life.”

Despite the intensity of his fandom, Chalamet is grateful for them, because they’ve “led me to be where I am.”

Chalamet’s next project, Wonka, is set to hit theaters on December 15.
