Who is Eiza González, the woman who stole Timothée Chalamet's heart after his split with Lily-Rose Depp?
Timothée Chalamet's charm has doubled up over the years and ever since ‘The Call Me By Your Name’ star split from Lily-Rose Depp after dating for more than a year, fans have been wondering if he has a new lady love in his life. The star, who can make women's knees go weak with just one look, was caught locking lips with Eiza González during a romantic vacation to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on Monday, June 22.
The 24-year-old actor seems to have moved on from Depp after two months of the couple's split. He was seen stroking Eiza's hair and smooching her as the two were hanging out on a getaway with a few friends. Gorgeous snaps from his trip with the ‘Baby Driver’ beauty, 30, were captured by TMZ and have been floating around on the Internet. Reportedly, Chalamet even strummed the guitar for Eiza while they were all having a good time at the poolside.
Soon, he lost his shirt and joined Eiza for a dip, who flaunted her svelte figure in a two-piece bikini. No sooner did the photos make their way to Twitter, fans couldn't help but admire the good-looking pair but also slammed them for being out during the Covid-19. "Timothée Chalamet living his best life with girlfriend Eiza González," one tweet said and another read, "Timothée Chalamet and Eiza Gonzalez vacationing in Mexico in the midst of a global pandemic!"
However, not everyone was happy with the couple, who have a six-year age gap. Calling them the "most random celebrity couple", one said, "Timothée Chalamet and Eiza González might be the most random celebrity couple I’ve ever heard of," and another posted, "So timothée is apparently hanging out and kissing Eiza González in Cabo... she has worn blackface and culturally appropriates without apologizing. I’m sorry but that ain’t it. Timothée what are you doing lauv?"
Many are wondering: Who is Eiza González? Born in 1990, Eiza is the only daughter of the former Mexican model, Glenda Reyna. Her father, Carlos González died in a motorcycle accident when she was 12. The actress and singer is known for her roles in the horror series 'From Dusk till Dawn: The Series', 'Baby Driver', 'Alita: Battle Angel' and 'The Fast and the Furious' spin-off film 'Hobbs & Shaw'. She got her first role at 16 when she was cast as the protagonist in the 2007 teen-oriented telenovela 'Lola...Érase una vez' and then played the lead role of Clara Molina on the Nickelodeon teen drama 'Sueña conmigo'.
By 2013, Eiza moved to Los Angeles and began dating her 'From Dusk till Dawn: The Series' co-star, DJ Cotrona. The two separated in June 2016. Eiza has been romantically connected to several celebrities in the past, including Josh Duhamel, Liam Hemsworth, Maluma, Calvin Harris, and Cristiano Ronaldo. Pointing it out, one fan wrote, "Miss Eiza, pls tell me how you got Liam Hemsworth, Josh Duhamel, Alejandro Fernandez and Timothée Chalamet. Pls chile, I'm begging." Many were jealous and one fan said, "Just the randomness of them together. Eiza and Timothée. I can't even think of a ship name for them BYE."
Moreover, many dug up past tweets of her blackface and slammed her as a "racist" and "Trump supporter". "So... what do yall think about Eiza and Timothee? I honestly think he can do WAY better.. like cmon Timmy, she did blackface and she’s a racist. what I’m trying to say is I miss Lily and Timothee together :/," one said. However, another pointed out how she apologized years ago sharing a photo of her message and posted, "Eiza Gonzalez is not racist, stop talking about her for doing Blackface, she apologized years ago."
News of Chalamet's split from Depp sprung up in late April, after which the actor was noted as being 'single' in his British Vogue May 2020 feature.
