You know what makes every movie (or TV show of live stage play or anything that involves a human being delivering lines for an audience, presumably) better? If you said "Timothée Chalamet (opens in new tab)," then you are both correct and in good company. Laura Dern (opens in new tab) (who happens to be another great addition to any movie, TV show, live stage play, or other thing involving a person delivering lines to an audience) thinks so too.
The accomplished actress presented Chalamet (opens in new tab) with a the Spotlight Award at the 30th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala earlier this week and had literally nothing but amazing things to say about him backstage.
"We've just had an amazing experience working together on this film, Little Women. So we just finished before Christmas," Dern told ET Online (opens in new tab), explaining how she and Chalamet (opens in new tab) met and bonded.
Dern (opens in new tab) and Chalamet (opens in new tab) are just two of the incredible actors appearing in Greta Gerwig's Little Women (opens in new tab) adaptation. The cast also includes Meryl Streep (opens in new tab), Emma Watson, Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, and Eliza Scanlen.
And, when asked if she would write Chalamet (opens in new tab) into her other big, highly-anticipated ensemble hit, HBO's Big Little Lies (opens in new tab), which is returning for a second season, Dern was basically like "HELL YES."
Okay, here's what she actually said:
"I think we would be very happy to have him. He's amazing!"
But that paraphrases as "HELL YES," right?
Of course, it's not that far-fetched to imagine Chalamet appearing on Big Little Lies. There's already quite a bit of crossover in the casts.
"Meryl Streep (opens in new tab), who is also in Little Women, is also in Big Little Lies. So she and I got to do two things in a row, which was a dream," Dern said.
