The Dune actor was standing in line at Madison Square Garden to vote in person when Gomez called him via livestream on Instagram this weekend. “Right now I’m literally voting, at my early voting station in New York at Madison Square Garden,” Chalamet said, “which feels particularly metaphorical because I’ve been many great things happen here. So I’m hoping another great thing happens today.”
Chalamet also shared footage of the long line of people waiting to vote and said, “It’s really moving to see this many people show up. It feels like people are motivated.”
He added: “Everyone’s telling young people to vote, but it feels kind of condescending, ‘Duh, we’re gonna vote. Duh.’”
Last week, Gomez shared a photo to her 194 million Instagram followers after she’d voted, with the caption: “Just finished filling out my ballot!” The post has already been liked by over nine million people. Elsewhere, Chalamet has made his thoughts on the election very clear, taking to Instagram to share his thoughts on Donald Trump and encouraging his followers to “vote that fucker out”.
