chalamet: Societal collapse in the air: Timothée Chalamet

The star of the dunes Timothée Chalamet didn’t shy away from talking about the impact of social media on society while promoting his new film at a press conference during the venice movie Festival

According to reports, during a press conference for his new movie, ‘Bones and All’, actor Timothee Chalamet has been open about his thoughts on social media and the harm he thinks it’s done, saying he’s glad he wasn’t a kid when social media was really popular.

“To be young now, and to be young every time – I can only speak for my generation – is to be intensely judged,” Chalamet said. “I can’t imagine what it’s like growing up with the onslaught of social media.” His most recent film is set in the 1980s, a time before social media and people were constantly bombarded with other people’s ideas.

Chalamet acknowledged that it was liberating to live a life without worrying about keeping your personality in line. He disagrees with society’s relentless need to interpret his feelings and thoughts in light of social media and what others may say about it.

“It was a relief to play characters struggling with an internal dilemma without the ability to go to Reddit or Twitter, instagram Where ICT Tac and figure out where they fit in,” he explained.

“I’m not passing judgement,” he added. “You can find your tribe there… [but] I think it’s hard to be alive now. I think the collapse of society is in the air. That’s why I hope this film counts.
