Tilda Swinton Pranked Timothée Chalamet At Cannes Film Festival
Tilda Swinton played a prank on co-star Timothée Chalamet at the premiere of their new film ‘The French Dispatch‘.
Both actors feature in Wes Anderson’s latest comedy-drama, alongside Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Elisabeth Moss and Benicio Del Toro. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and earned a 9-minute-long standing ovation from the audience.
It was during this ovation that Tilda Swinton embraced fellow cast member, Chalamet – using the opportunity to stick her name card on his back. Variety’s Executive Editor, Ramin Setoodeh, captured the moment on Twitter.
