Timothee Chalamet thrilled a 19-year-old fan when he wore a T-shirt she designed on the red carpet at the National Board of Review gala in New York last week.

The King actor, 24, sported the white T-shirt featuring embroidery of a hand throwing up the peace sign as he posed for photographs, which caught the attention of fan and Michigan-based student Avery Warsaw – who sent him the piece.

Speaking to the New York Post’s gossip column Page Six, she revealed she learnt to embroider the design in 2018, and created a rainbow-coloured version for the actor in honour of his role in LGBTQ coming-of-age flick Call Me By Your Name.

“He’s an amazing actor, but at the same time he’s very intelligent and well-spoken, silly and kind-hearted, stylish and individualistic,” she said.

Avery, who was inspired by a previous fan who gifted an Eiffel tower keychain to the actor, which he was later spotted carrying, gave her design to Timothee’s agent at a December screening of his new movie Little Women, and she didn’t have to wait long to see the star modelling her creation.

“It’s so cool because I look up to him for fashion inspiration and now he’s wearing a shirt that I made. It’s crazy,” she added.

“@RealChalamet I MADE THIS SHIRT,” she excitedly posted on Twitter. “SO GLAD TO SEE YOU WEARING IT AHH LOOKS SO GOOD.”

The actor completed the look with a white Stella McCartney jacket with black lapels and matching trousers. Avery is now selling the T-shirt via Instagram and Twitter for $35 (£27), plus an additional $10 (£8) for shipping.

Rachel Weisz is looking forward to a time when she’s not asked about working with other actresses.

The British star has won widespread praise for her two most recent films; forbidden love story Disobedience alongside Rachel McAdams, and period black comedy The Favourite with Olivia Colman and Emma Stone.

Speaking as she picked up the special Jury Award for Ensemble Performance for The Favourite at Monday night’s (26Nov18) Gotham Awards, Rachel touched on what it’s like to always be asked about her female co-stars.

“I hope that one day soon, in the not-so-distant future, we don’t get asked what it was like to share the screen with other women, because I don’t think you ever ask men that – but I could be wrong,” she mused.

The Favourite, about last Stewart monarch Queen Anne (Colman) and the two women who vied for her attention, is widely tipped to be an Oscar contender, though Yorgos Lanthimos’ film failed to win any prizes from America’s National Board of Review.

Rachel, 48, also spoke about the costumes she had to wear on the set of the 18th-century drama.

“Wearing those costumes took strength. They pulled the corsets so tight, so hard, you could feel the stays which actually left lines on my body,” she recalled.

“We shot 10 weeks in Hatfield House, a north-of-England Elizabethan mansion, and were allowed to touch only certain things. Antique guns was another difficulty. Gun powder kept getting in your eyes.”
