A fan who got to sit next to Timothee Chalamet on a flight acted EXACTLY how anyone lucky enough to sit next to him would: Totally beside themselves with complete and utter giddiness!

 

— And of course, they immediately took to social media to tweet about it. About ALL OF IT.

 

Every. Single. Detail. And we’re all for the tweets that we were gifted with. Priceless!

 

Here’s what happened:

The 23-year-old actor was sitting in the middle seat in economy class. The fan, with Twitter name Alankrutha and handle @alankruthahaha, was seated beside him and told him he looked like Timothee Chalamet. Timothee replied that he got that a lot. Riiight.

 

Later on in the flight, the fan told Timothee they knew it was him – and that’s when their very interesting conversation began, which the fan then shared on Twitter!

 

Read Alankrutha’s tweets right here (as well as the equally entertaining comments from other users) –

Alankrutha:

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

 

Enen:

The real question though, is does this happen in economy class or should I just stop dreaming that this will ever happen to me

 

Alankrutha:

HE WAS IN ECONOMY!!!!!!!! THAT WAS MY FIRST QUESTION TO HIM!!! MIDDLE SEAT ECONOMY

 

Alankrutha:

Working on 4 hours of sleep, I am ready to tell everyone how I met Timotheé Chalamet and how we are (probably) friends now?!?!? pic.twitter.com/YVceaTjqx4

 

Alankrutha:

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 to see an actual angel and alarm bells in my head go off immediately pic.twitter.com/xVXEwcrdGk

 

Alankrutha:

flight takes off and head is exploding bc 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” pic.twitter.com/SaEpjOqOBE

 

Alankrutha:

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 U R TIMOTHEE” pic.twitter.com/fixN4Z9X4G

Alankrutha:

HE LAUGHED AND SAID “AYYY 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 pic.twitter.com/nYXovxWM4s

 

Alankrutha:

List of actual questions my dumb b***h mind asked him that he answered super patiently:
1. Why are you sitting in economy class (he laughed and said how dare you)
2. Have you met Beyoncé (he has not)
3. How is Steve carrell (he said he’s amazing and offered to FaceTime him!!)

 

Alankrutha:

List of words that escaped my mouth:
1: I googled your height
2. Pls see my friend’s (@amyoosed)twitter dp, it is ur face
3. I have stalked ur Wiki page (got a hi 5 for this)
4. Are u going to the oscars
5. Your introductory scene in lady bird kills me tho ur a D bag in it

 

Alankrutha:

What shocks me the most is this dude wanted to know about me. He asked me what I do, what project management is about (literally who cares timothee), where I grew up and PRONOUNCED MY NAME RIGHT

 

Alankrutha:

the BEST discussion we had was about THE OFFICE and which episode 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

 

Alankrutha:

And whenever he asks me 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 (ofc why wouldn’t he) and tells me about his life growing up and how he got into films

 

Alankrutha:

And all 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 to a friend only bc he made me feel so comfortable!

 

Alankrutha:

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 conversion with an pure soul

 

Alankrutha:

The flight landed, we spoke for a bit about his upcoming films, he wished me luck for my career (Idc about my career at this point) and also told me I was the *only* one in his entire journey who recognised him and asks if I want a pic and I oblige graciously w/o any frills

 

Alankrutha:

MORAL OF THE STORY- if you work hard enough and never leave your house, you might stumble upon @RealChalamet on a flight and proceed to ask him who the most famous celeb on his phone is. *THE END*

 

Alankrutha:

Major things I forgot to mention:
1. When the stewardess offered him flight pretzels & orange juice, he scarfed them down in < 20 secs like he hadn’t eaten in 48 hours
2. He asked if I was expecting him to be taller or shorter- I said shorter (shut up @ me)
3. He loves easy A

 

Alankrutha:

This pure BABY asked me where I watched Lady bird and I said I watched it in the theatre and his EYES LIT UP I CANNOT. Anyway, my only regret is that I didn’t ask him to drop his skin care routine, feel like it would’ve led to this
