- Timothée Chalamet celebrated Zendaya’s birthday with the sweetest message on Twitter yesterday, causing followers to swoon.
- The actress responded, saying that the note was going to make her “tear up.”
- The two are costars in the upcoming epic adaptation of Dune, due this December.
For Zendaya’s 24th birthday yesterday, her costar and friend Timothée Chalamet passed on the go-to Instagram Story spam and opted for a glowing Twitter tribute that somehow totaled fewer than 280 characters.
“Happy birthday to one of the most inspiring people I’ve met on my short journey,” Chalamet, also 24, began his message to the Euphoria star on Tuesday morning. “Someone with the strongest ethical character, and a moral compass that is in harmony with a totally fearless creative abandon. happy birthday @Zendaya, hope your day is beautiful, friend.”
Zendaya gratefully responded, “Yo, you bout to make me tear up over here man, thank you for this, I appreciate you very much.”
The two actors are starring opposite together in Denis Villeneuve’s forthcoming film adaptation of Dune, the 1965 sci-fi epic by Frank Herbert. Oscar-nominated Chalamet is lead hero Prince Paul Atreides, while Emmy-nominated Zendaya is his love interest, Chani. The film, which began production in March 2019, is slated to arrive in theaters on December 18. A new photo of the two costars arrived this week, featured in the latest issue of Empire magazine.
While some speculated that Zendaya friend-zoned the Call Me by Your Name star with her responding tweet, others simply reveled at the outpouring of love between the two stars.
A note to my friends: Send me Timothée-esque birthday tributes so I know it’s real.
