The 25-year-old plays Paul Atreides in the sci-fi movie, a young man who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. Pretty full on, huh?
In anticipation of Dune dropping in cinemas, the likes of Timothée, Zendaya, Jason Momoa and Rebecca Ferguson took part in a press tour, visiting everywhere from Toronto to Venice and London.
Along the way, as well as serving very beautiful red carpet looks, the actor also made some fans very thirsty, thanks to this viral clip. In it, Timothée catches eye contact with a fan in the crowd while giving an interview, and yeah, it's pretty swoon-worthy.
"Look I'm not even a fan of his but if he did that to me I'd pass away," one person wrote, while another said, "He did a double take, a little head nod, and looked again! Like I'd simply die."
Someone else put, "How does it feel to be living my dream?" and "The look! How didn't you scream?"
Taking to Instagram Stories last night [26 October], the actor thanked fans for their support of his new movie. "THANK YOU to EVERYONE who saw these movies in theatres this past weekend!!! [sic]" he wrote.
"The movies exist because of the cast and crew but actually going to see them in theatres got it over the finish line !! So THANK YOU !!!!! [sic]"
Quick question: How do we join the fan club?
