Kylie Jenner and Timothee Chalamet 'love literature' but fans say reality star is too 'vapid' for actor
Fans believe the match between Kylie and Timothee is Kris Jenner's last-ditch effort to improve Kylie's relevance and further her cred in Hollywood
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: One of the most talked about Hollywood couples currently is none other than Kylie Jenner and Timothee Chalamet.
The 25-year-old 'self-made billionaire' and mother of two has dated several men in the entertainment business in the past, including rappers Travis Scott and Tyga.
Chalamet, on the other hand is known for bagging prestigious film roles, from playing Willy Wonka in the newest take on Road Dahl's book to Paul Atreides himself in 'Dune'.
The two recently made things 'official' by snogging in front of cameras at a Beyonce concert and then popping up at the US Open finals to get handsy in the stands.
However, since the couple's PDA pictures went viral, netizens think the reality star is supposedly far too "vapid" for the skinny actor, who is known for playing serious dramatic roles.
A fan has however claimed, in a recent Deuxmoi submission, that the Kylie Cosmetics creator and the 'Dune' star share a "love of literature." The information sparked a discussion about the couple and their true selves away from cameras.
When did Kylie Jenner and Timothee Chalamet start dating?
It is said that the two first spoke in January 2023. During Paris Couture Week at the time, Deuxmoi posted a video of them laughing together at the Jean Paul Gaultier fashion show. They weren't pictured together, but they both attended the Vanity Fair 2023 Oscars after-party too.
When Timothée's Beverly Hills home was photographed with Kylie's black Range Rover parked outside, romance rumors first surfaced in April 2023.
They were then seen dining out casually at Tito's Tacos in Santa Monica. After that, a source told People (via Harper's Bazaar) that they "are hanging out and getting to know each other."
Even though they were getting closer by May 2023, they were still trying to keep it casual. They were "trying to keep it low-key," a source told Entertainment Tonight, while a different source told People that Kylie "enjoys dating, but her main focus is being a mom."
Finally, they were spotted together at Beyoncé's Renaissance concert in Los Angeles in September, along with other A-list celebrities like Kelly Rowland, Kendall Jenner, and Meghan Markle, despite rumors that they had split up in August.
They kissed as cameras flashed, confirming their relationship had taken off and things were getting serious. Their recent PDA-heavy outing at the US Open only further affirms that they are still a couple.
What do fans think about Kylie Jenner And Timothee Chalamet's relationship?
Even though Kylie is frequently portrayed as the shallow half of the relationship, an anonymous tipster wrote to Deuxmoi to say that "her love of literature is partly what sparked her interest in Timmy."
"She's a huge fan of the Dune series and rarely gets an opportunity to have in-depth discussions about it," they continued, "and Timothée is actually happy to talk Children of Dune with her."
"Can we not Kris?" was written beneath a screenshot of the submission that was posted on the Fauxmoi Reddit sub, alluding to the momager who may have been 'selling' the story. Many commenters disagreed with the assertions.
What did netizens write about Kylie Jenner and Timothee Chalamet?
One wrote: "Look, this seems kind of fake but...Kylie is probably not half as vapid as people act like she is and Timothee is probably like 10x more vapid than people act like he is. All in all, that probably comes back to equal vapidness and a perfectly reasonable match."
Another Redditor pointed out the unfair stereotyping of the two. "Yeah, people think that because Kylie's a Kardashian-Jenner with lip fillers on a reality TV show, she's dumb and because Timothee's a French-ish guy who's skinny and in A24 movies, he's an intellectual," they said. "The reality is that they're both likely not idiots, but also not academics." Harsh, but good point.
Regarding Kylie's purported taste in books, one person said, "It's hilarious how they're trying to spin Kylie as a literature buff when Dune is written at a 5th grade reading level. Frank Herbert is no Tolstoy or Brontë sister," one said of Kylie's alleged book tastes.
That comment then sparked another sub-debate about Frank Herbert's position in the world of literature, which is just a whole other discussion.
