Timothee Chalamet was starstruck and “Weird” the first time he met “Harry Potter” star Emma Watson.
The two are co-stars in Greta Gerwig’s upcoming adaptation of “Little Women”. Chalamet, 23, plays Theodore Laurence opposite Watson, 29, who portrays Meg March in the film.
While on “Late Night With Seth Meyers”, Chalamet reveals he nearly lost his cool upon meeting Watson during a dance rehearsal.
“There is two big dance sequences in the film. One is with Meg March who’s played by Emma Watson. One’s with Jo who is played by Saoirse [Ronan], and as an ice breaker, as a way to lose our masks, our shields of defense, our insecurity, Greta had us do this dance class in this big room,” he explains to Seth Meyers.
“I grew up on ‘Harry Potter’ in some way,” he shares. “I grew up seeing those movies. So that first time seeing Emma Watson – this is going to be weird for her to see now – that was definitely a weird moment. I worked past it.”
It took “tons of therapy” to move past it, he jokes.
“Little Women” opens in theatres on Christmas Day.
