Like Jesus feeding the 5,000, but make it Hollywood
Timothée Chalamet is living his east London fuckboy fantasy, only this time, he’s brought with him some Brick Lane-style bagels. The 23-year-old attended the premiere of David Michôd’s historical drama The King in New York last night, wearing a neon yellow turtleneck and all-black suit, which he accessorised with a white paper bag filled with the round, doughy goods.
In a Gen Z reenactment of Jesus feeding the 5,000, or Oprah Winfrey’s ‘You Get A Car’, Chalamet – who plays King Henry V in the film – began to distribute the baked goods, from his favourite Tompkins Square Bagels in East Village, to his subjects – I mean, fans – as he walked down the red carpet. Accompanying King Timmy, was his co-star Lily-Rose Depp, who plays Catherine of Valoisin.
Hitting Netflix on September 2, The King sees Chalamet play a reluctant King Henry V with an out-there bowl cut as he transitions from rebellious prince to British monarch, navigating ”the palace politics, chaos, and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life”. An equally indie-looking Robert Pattinson also stars in the film as Louis, a son of King Charles VI of France and Catherine’s brother.
