You never know what will happen when you're traveling.
You might end up meeting someone very interesting in the airport security line and forging a life-long friendship! Orrrrr you might end up having your flight delayed and end up trying to spend 6 hours trying to fall asleep in an uncomfortable seat at your gate. It can really go either way. Of course, celebrities have to travel, too. In fact, most of them probably travel more than the average person. And while some of them pay top dollar to sit in first class and hide from the everyday folks in Economy, others choose to sit among the plebs. Apparently, Timothée Chalamet — star of Call Me By Your Name and Beautiful Boy – is one of the latter types of celebs. Or, at least, he was, when a fan found herself sitting next to him.
She shared the whole story in a now-viral Twitter thread. It was clearly very exciting for her.
Air travel is both magical and kind of the worst.
via: ShutterstockOn the one hand, you can be transported to the other side of the globe in a matter of hours by flying through the sky like a bird.
On the other hand, the security lines are kind of the worst.
via: ShutterstockYou'll never feel more like livestock than when you're in line at the airport. And you'll inevitably get stuck behind the ONE PERSON who has decided to wear very complicated shoes, a belt, and who carries all of their change in their pockets.
Once you're finally on the plane, you'll inevitably get your knees smacked by the seat in front of you.There's no way around it. It's going to happen.
And heaven help you if you have to visit the lavatory.
via: ShutterstockIt's like they asked someone to design the least comfortable bathroom ever, made it just a little bit less comfortable, and then put in every plane in the world.
And, of course, there are the seatmates to deal with.If you're lucky, you and your seatmates will enter into an unspoken agreement to ignore each others' existence even though you are practically sitting on each others' laps.
Or you might get really lucky, as the woman in today's story did.
via: TwitterThis is Alankrutha. She's a Twitter user, a traveler, and — as you're about to find out — a big fan of Timothée Chalamet.
Alankrutha recently found herself sitting next to Chalamet on an airplane.
