Will Timothee Chalamet address leaked 'pool' photos on 'SNL' debut? Here are some 2020 events he was in news for
In June, Eiza Gonzalez and Chalamet were spotted locking lips on a romantic getaway to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
After almost a month’s hiatus, ‘Saturday Night Live’ was back on December 5 with Jason Bateman as the host and Morgan Wallen as the musical guest. A few days prior to that, they had announced their December shows on social media. One particular name was a welcome surprise because that star would be making his debut as host for the iconic sketch-comedy show. Without much suspense, we are talking about the talented and handsome Timothée Chalamet. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will be the musical guests.
24-year-old Chalamet has time and again proved his acting talent with every movie he has starred in. The upcoming projects of the Academy Award-nominated actor include Wes Anderson’s ‘The French Dispatch’ and Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’. Fans haven’t really seen him donning the host’s hat hence it will be interesting to see how he fairs in that role. It will also be exciting to wait for the skits he stars in and to see if he pokes fun at any of the characters he had portrayed on screen.
But what will be even more exciting is if he addresses the various reasons he was in the news for. For one, in May this year, the 'Call Me by Your Name' actor was all over the Internet because the hashtag #TimotheeChalametLeaked started trending. As reported by MEAWW, fans were scouting for his nude pictures and videos. However, the trend seemed to be a hoax and all it had was blank pictures. But it did manage to gain attention. Those who joined the party later couldn't help but criticize all the fans who had forced them to click on it.
Sometime before this incident, after it was reported that Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp had broken up, a clip of the actor kissing Selena Gomez went viral on TikTok, sparking rumors that there might be something brewing between the two. In the clip, Chalamet and Gomez were locking lips. Much to the disappointment of the fans who were rooting for them to be a couple, the clip turned out to be from 'A Rainy Day in New York’.
Then in June, it seemed like he found love in the arms of Eiza González as the two were spotted locking lips on a romantic getaway to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Several intimate pictures were leaked on the Internet where the two could be seen enjoying each other’s company and sharing a private moment while relaxing in a pool. While Chalamet could be seen walking around shirtless in swimming trucks, Eiza flaunted her svelte figure in a bikini along with oversized sunglasses. Fans were divided on the leaks – some were concerned that it shouldn’t have been made public while others didn’t mind the voyeurism.
Recently, in an exclusive interview with GQ, Chalamet spoke about another leaked photo incident that involved him and his former girlfriend Lily-Rose. In Capri, they were photographed by paparazzi and in one photo, which was circulated widely, they were seen making out on the deck of a boat. The photo looked awkward and many alleged that the photo was staged for publicity. “I went to bed that night thinking that was one of the best days of my life,” Chalamet told Daniel Riley in GQ. “I was on this boat all day with someone I really loved, and closing my eyes, I was like, indisputably, ‘That was great.’ And then waking up to all these pictures, and feeling embarrassed, and looking like a real nob? All pale? And then people are like: This is a P.R. stunt. A P.R. stunt?! Do you think I'd want to look like that in front of all of you?!”
So, this year has involved a lot of leaked photographs for Chalamet, but that won’t stop his loyal fans from "stanning him". Whether the talented actor addresses any of these incidents remains to be seen in the upcoming episode of ‘SNL’
Episode 8 of ‘Saturday Night Live’ will air on December 12, 11.30 ET on NBC
