Timothee Chalamet Says It Doesn't Feel Like He's Acting When Working With Saoirse Ronan

Saoirse Ronan pulls her arms around Timothée Chalamet on the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.

The two actors are opening up about their new film together, Little Women, which is set to hit theaters on Christmas Day, December 25th.

Saoirse and Timothee chatted about working together for the second time, after Lady Bird.

“He keeps me on my toes—I’m never quite sure what he’s going to do next,” Saoirse says. “That only progressed more and grew more. It helped that we do have a very natural rapport with each other…. These two characters physically need to be very comfortable with one another. They’re literally intertwined for half the film.”

Timothee added, “In the least cliched way possible, it really doesn’t feel like [I’m] acting sometimes [with her]. When it’s someone you’re actually friends with, it makes it easier.”

“It’s so rare with Saoirse – I’m so f—ing grateful to get to work with her,” he shared.

Saoirse also opened up about the power of the iconic Louisa May Alcott tale.

“It’s as important to tell Little Women right now as it would be at any point in our lifetime,’ she says. [It's] celebrating female friendships and sisterhood; it’s a story that’s full of love. That will always be relevant.”
