Even though both Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet are currently rumoured to be dating other people, ever since first look photos of the actors in Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming sci-fi blockbuster Dune have been out fans can’t help but ship the duo who claim that they are just very good friends. But the beautiful message 24-year-old actor has penned for Zendaya’s 24th birthday makes us yearn more for the friends to become a couple if they aren’t already because Timothée practically adores her!
“Happy birthday to one of the most inspiring people I’ve met on my short journey,” the Oscar-nominated star tweeted. “Someone with the strongest ethical character, and a moral compass that is in harmony with a totally fearless creative abandon. Happy birthday Zendaya, hope your day is beautiful, friend..”
Zendaya later responded to the sweet birthday message from her best pal with an equally adorable tweet, “Yo, you bout to make me tear up over here man, thank you for this, I appreciate you very much,” she wrote.
It is widely known that Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet are the best of friends and have been spotted together a number of times from red carpet appearances, parties, and they are even each other’s shopping buddies as earlier this year, they were spotted at Bed, Bath & Beyond in New York. And now these besties are all set to share the silver screen together and find out if the charisma of their friendship is visible in the chemistry of their characters as well or not.
In the highly anticipated epic, Dune, due to release later this year, Timothée Chalamet portrays the lead character of Paul Atreides, who is on the mission to protect his desert planet Arrakis from extinction. In the film, birthday girl Zendaya plays a mysterious women named Chani who comes from the Freeman tribe and is Paul’s love interest.
“I wasn’t in it very much, so when I was watching the trailer, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ I called Timothée and said, ‘Dude! You should be proud.’ It is a big deal to even be a small part of something with such a massive cast. And I love sci-fi stuff too. It’s fun to escape into another world,” Zendaya told InStyle last month.
We know, they both are both too cute and perfect for each other and why on Earth are they not dating already! The reason in Zendaya’s case could be the almost certain rumours of her dating her Euphoria co-star, the dreamy Jacob Elordi. But if these predictions fall short of the truth and it turns out that Timothée Chalamet is indeed dating Zendaya, we know we will be rooting for this perfect Hollywood star maybe-couple!
