Guys, I had the honor to be interviewed by Ella Kemp for her article on older fans of Timothée Chalamet. I responded to her tweet asking for older fans to reach out to her to answer some questions about stanning for Timmy. I happily answered her questions, and the results is the great article she wrote. To my surprise, my quotes are heavily featured, and the title of the article references Club Chalamet. Huzzah!!! The release of this British article could not come at a better time!
I immediately noticed an increase in followers on my twitter account, and here at Club Chalamet. Welcome everyone!
Here's the article. Read it and feel free to share your thoughts.
In a safe and serious corner of the internet, Club Chalamet is a strict no-kids-allowed zone. It’s not a silly or a particularly sexy place: a photo of 23-year-old actor Timothée Chalamet from his 2018 GQ cover shoot looks at you from the top of the page, next to the name of the website written in bright yellow letters. There is an atmosphere of calm and precise organisation. This is a forum for mature fans of the young actor, offering an inclusive environment for older people to share their love.
Although it’s the only message board of its kind, Club Chalamet is indicative of the growing community of adult fans – self-described by some as 'stan-mas'.
Simone runs the forum as well as the associated Twitter and Instagram accounts. "I want to help carve out a niche fanbase of mature, well-balanced adults in support of his career," says the 52-year-old healthcare professional. Based in Los Angeles, Simone joins a thriving worldwide community:
I love this so much! I love being part of all of the social media sites that have to do with Timmy. I've met and talked with so many amazing people. And I feel better knowing that there is such a large group of fans that are over 30 like me. lol
I just read the wonderful article on Refinery29. I am a 65 year old who also loves to follow what Timothée is up to. I think he is an amazing actor. Call Me By Your Name just blew me away and ever since I saw that over a year ago, I have wanted to share my love of the movie and Timmy with others. I also really think his fashion sense is the best! I love that he takes chances and surprises us every time. To watch or hear him in interviews I see a very smart, funny, honest, true to himself and humble guy. I am new to this site and am happy to be here.

Thanks for sharing this article. I am a 34 year old male who loves movies and loves Timothee Chalamet, because it is so rare to see an A list actor and now bonafide movie star go out of his way on his own time to please his fans, i.e. autographs, selfies, kindness, etc. It is so utterly refreshing to see. I wish more stars followed that model and realized that while there can certainly be crazy fans, most fans are great and just want to connect for a few seconds with someone they admire on stage and screen. I hope I can meet Timothee Chalamet in person at a movie event one day, because he seems so genuine and makes people feel better. I feel better about humanity just watching one of his interviews haha. Anyways I am huge fan and love Club Chalamet.
