Timothee Chalamet Reveals His Secret YouTube Channel

“I would charge people $10.”

Timothee Chalamet has been winning hearts ever since his first movie. But while he has held the attention of his fans with his latest release by dodging giant sandworms in Dune, a surprise revelation is in store for fans.

The actor was once a gamer in 2010, specifically a YouTuber who focused on modded Xbox 360 controllers and boasted about 14,000 subscribers, as reported by Vice.

During an interview with YouTuber Nate Hill alongside fellow Dune star Zendaya, the pair discussed their histories with video games, where Chalamet discussed how he got into games like Luigi’s Mansion and Super Smash Bros. Melee. He then went on to get into both Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2, which is where he revealed that he was the owner of ModdedController360. 

After Vice published its report, a clip of Chalamet was shared showing him admitting to his past as a young controller modder.

“I spray painted them on my pillow. I would open them up and I would charge people $10,” Chalamet said, noting he made a grand total of $30 before his parents told him to quit filling the house with paint fumes.

Chalamet’s old channel shows off a red and green Christmas-themed controller, a blue and silver controller, and a red and black controller.

Meanwhile, new reports suggest Shia LaBeouf was fired as Timothee Chalamet’s ‘Call Me’ lover. 

The former Disney Channel star, 35, was in the running to play Hammer’s character, Oliver, who was the older boyfriend of Chalamet’s Elio.

Screenwriter and producer James Ivory explained in his new memoir, “Solid Ivory,” that LaBeouf was first contacted to play the role.

In passages published in GQ on Wednesday, Ivory wrote that he was uncertain about LaBeouf’s casting due to the fact that he couldn’t visualize the “Fury” actor playing “an academic writing about the Greek philosopher Heraclitus.”

“Shia came to read for us in New York with Timothee Chalamet, paying for his own plane ticket, and [director Luca Guadagnino] and I had been blown away,” Ivory said. “The reading by the two young actors had been sensational; they made a very convincing hot couple.”

However, Ivory claims that LaBeouf was “dropped” from contention after a run of “bad publicity.”

The screenwriter, who was originally supposed to direct the film, went on to say, “Luca cast Armie Hammer and never spoke to, or of, Shia again.”
