Timothee Chalamet has added to his growing reputation as a queer fan favourite by giving $1,000 to New York’s LGBT Community Centre live on the Golden Globes red carpet.

The Call Me By Your Name actor was told during an interview at the Golden Globes on Sunday (January 6) that champagne company Moët “will give $1,000 to the charity of your choice.”

Chalamet asked: “Are you serious?” before following the Moët representative’s instructions and looking straight into the camera to say, without hesitation: “LGBTQ centre in New York.”

The red carpet reporter for Entertainment Tonight told him: “Good for you!” to which the actor, who was nominated for best supporting actor for his work in Beautiful Boy, responded: “Sweet, thank you.”

A tweet with a clip of Chalamet’s instant decision to give the donation to New York’s LGBT Community Centre has gone viral.

The post, tweeted along with the caption “he said that so fast ugh his mind,” has attracted around 20,000 retweets and likes.
