Watch “Call Me By Your Name” Star Timothée Chalamet As A Teenage Rapper

He's actually pretty good, too.

Timothée Chalamat is currently starring in the very buzzy Call Me By Your Name but in addition to being a talented actor, did you know Chalamat was a teenage rap star?

Well, “star” might be pushing it. But he did perform for classmates at New York’s LaGuardia Performing Arts High School, where he rapped under the stage name “Timmy T.”

Two videos have surfaced of Chalamat dropping rhymes—and you only wish you were this cool when you were a teen. The first is a video from 2013, when he raps about statistics for his “favorite teacher ever,” Ms. Lawton.

Then there’s another video gem from 2011, complete with backup dancers and some sick beats.
 

His rapping wasn’t the only reason Chalamat stood out from the crowd at LaGuardia: While there he dated classmate Lourdes Leon, a.k.a. Madonna’s daughter.

Chalamat recently swung by Sirius XM, where Andy Cohen recalled they first met at a party when the young actor was dating Leon. Chalamat also remembered that night because it was when he got to dance with the Material Girl herself.

 

Making out with Armie Hammer AND dancing with Madonna? Timothée Chalamet is living the dream.
