Twitter user @alankruthahaha tweeted about a three-hour flight she took where she was surprised to find that her seat-mate for the voyage was actor Timothee Chalamet.
According to, Alankrutha, the flight went as follows:
“Y’all nbd just sat next to @RealChalamet on a 3 hour flight and we CHATTED FOR AN HOUR NBD I AM SUPER CALM RIGHT NOW AS EVERYONE CAN TELL.”
We feel ya.
She continued, “Working on 4 hours of sleep, I am ready to tell everyone how I met Timothee Chalamet and how we are (probably) friends no?!?!?!
So I enter the flight and see a tall, lanky dude in front of me wearing a hoodie and both of us are the only ones w/o overhead space to keep our bags and I look up and see an actual angel and alarm bells in my head go off immediately.
Flight takes off and head is exploding because I ‘had’ to know who this dude so 30 mins into the flight, I work up the courage and nudge him and ask ‘hey you look exactly like Timothee Chalamet’ to which he smiles and says, ‘I GET THAT A LOT.’
So I figured he didn’t want to be disturbed and things I did in the process- ate a sandwich, peed twice, kept stealing glances at him and 1.5 hours in, he asked me when the flight was going to land and I couldn’t hold it in and said ‘I KNOW YOU ARE TIMOTHEE’
HE LAUGHED AND SAID, ‘AYY YES IT IS, HI I AM TIMOTHEE’ and shook my hands and at this point I was basically shook/stunned and I couldn’t process anything.”
Next, she noted some questions she asked him during this time:
“List of actual questions my dumb bitch mind asked him that he answered super patiently:
She then goes back to describing their chat in a series of tweets, “What shocks me the most is this dude wanted to know about me. He asked me what I do, what my project management is about (literally who cares Timothee) where I grew up and PRONOUNCED MY NAME RIGHT.
The BEST discussion we had was about THE OFFICE and which episodes we love (I said Dinner Party - represent) and we discussed the show and at this point I’m like is my life real, is this a fever dream?
And whenever he asks about my life, I’m like !!!!! Why do you want to know about an IDIOT like me!!!! He asks about India, name drops Armie Hammer (of course why wouldn’t he) and tells me about his life growing up and how he got into films.
And his questions were super sincere and genuine and he KEPT high fiving/friendly nudging and while my heart was exploding, I also spoke to him like I would a friend only because he made me feel so comfortable!
ANYWAY, after a good conversation, he went back to his music and I went back to kicking myself hard for actually having held a good conversation with a pure soul.
The flight landed, we spoke for a bit about his upcoming films, he wished me luck for my career (I don’t care about my career at this point) and also told me I was the *only* one in his entire journey who recognized him and asks if I want a pic and I oblige graciously without any frills.”
She then posted a gif of what she feels she looked like as she walked out of the flight as her (new best friend Timothée) waved goodbye and left.
Wait, there’s more! She remembered some things she forgot to mention previously:
I think I speak for all of us when I say, thank you, @alankruthahaha, for sharing!
