Ah Timothée Chalamet, the internet’s boyfriend. Timmy has had a seriously impressive career already at just 24. He’s been in Call Me By Your Name, Little Women and Ladybird to name but a few, but there is a lot more to Tim than his acting.

Here are 10 facts you may not have known about the actor.

He holds dual-citizenship in the US and France

You don’t get a name like that unless you’ve got some french in you! Timothée’s dad is French and the actor spends his summers there with his grandparents in a small French village two hours away from Lyon. This means that he has a French and a US passport.

He’s got a famous family

He’s got lots of movie-business family members. His sister Pauline is an actress who lives in France, but that’s not all. His mam’s side is really creative. She was a Broadway dancer, his uncle is filmmaker Rodman Flender, and his aunt is a television producer and writer Amy Lippman. His grandfather was screenwriter Harold Flender, and his grandmother, Enid Flender is a former Broadway dancer.

He could have been a rapper

During his time in school, he dabbled in some rapping under the name Lil Timmy Tim. Yes really!

Ansel Elgort is a school friend

Not only does Timothée have a famous fam, but famous friends too. One of Chalamet’s classmates during his time at LaGuardia was Ansel Elgort. The two are still close friends today and are often spotted hanging out.

He could have been Spider-Man

Timothée auditioned for the role of Spider-Man in the Marvel films. The role eventually went to Tom Holland though, so we’re not complaining.

He has some famous girlfriends

Timothée most recently date Lily Depp, but they split this year. It’s not the only famous GF he’s had though, as the actor also dated Lourdes Leon, the daughter of pop superstar Madonna. The couple started dating while they were both students at LaGuardia around 2013 and were together for a few years.

He was a basketball mascot

Timothée was apparently good at soccer, but not so good at basketball, and acted as a mascot for the team instead. Speaking about the job he said that being in a costume is hot, “but at halftime, you can take it off and just relax.” He also said “if the whole acting thing doesn’t work out,” he’s open to being a mascot again.

Kiernan Shipka is like a sister to him

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star starred alongside Timothée in 2015. In the thriller, called One & Two, the actors played brother and sister. Kiernan said they ended up leaving the project feeling like actual siblings. “He’s such a part of the Shipka clan,” she told “Refinery29.” “He should hyphenate his last name, actually.” Cute!
