Timothée Chalamet fans annoyed at question Sam Thompson asked him during Dune interview

Timothée Chalamet fans annoyed at question Sam Thompson asked him during Dune interview

Fans thought the question was what 'you'd ask high school theatre students'

Timothée Chalamet fans are annoyed at one question the star had to answer while promoting his latest movie.

Dune: Part Two is set to hit the big screen in the UK on 29 February 2024, and its stars have been doing the press run for the past couple of weeks.

The second instalment will continue to follow Paul Atreides (Chalamet) as he unites with love-interest Chani (Zendaya) and the Fremen while seeking out revenge against those who destroyed his family.

He will face a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the universe, and has to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee.

The film, based on the 1965 novel of the same name, boasts a star-studded ensemble cast, with the likes of Josh Brolin, Florence Pugh, Austin Butler, Dave Bautista and many more along with Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya.

But during the press run, the two main stars of the epic sci-fi film have had to encounter a specific type of question, repeatedly.

Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya are very close friends in real-life, but have a romantic relationship in the movie.

Former Made in Chelsea star Sam Thompson couldn't resist asking Chalamet about it, saying in a press junket interview for the film: "You're an actor, right, I would find it so hard - like you've obviously got a relationship with somebody [on screen] who is also your friend, it's not like you actually don't know them, they're actually your friend.

"Is it easier or harder to have a relationship on-screen with someone who you’re actually pals with?"

The 28-year-old nonchalantly responded: "There’s no good answer to that.

"It’s what the story required, and maybe in some ways because we are good friends maybe it was less weird.

"It’s the nature of the job.”

In real life, Zendaya is dating Spider-Man star Tom Holland, and Chalamet is reportedly with socialite Kylie Jenner.


When the film premiered in Paris, Zendaya was asked about their kissing scenes to which the 27-year-old simply responded: “I think it’s our job.”

Fans in the comments of the video on X, which has accumulated over one and a half million views, were annoyed that Chalamet was asked the question.

One user said: "Interviewers discovering what actors have been doing for decades is hilarious."

Another commented: "I didn't even have to unmute to know which question, these are like questions you'd ask high school theatre students."

A third put: "They’re almost 30 and they’ve both been professional actors since they were teenagers!!! Why are people so obsessed with this ughhhhh."

Dune: Part Two will be available in cinemas across the UK on 29 February.
