Timothee Chalamet told RTÉ Entertainment that he relates to his fame as a fair trade-off to getting to work on projects he is passionate about.

The 23-year-old actor can currently be seen starring alongside Saoirse Ronan in Greta Gerwig's adaptation of Little Women, and it marks his second time he has worked with both stars after appearing in 2017's Lady Bird.

That same year Call Me By Your Name earned Chalamet an Oscar nomination and he was propelled into the spotlight.

When asked by RTÉ Entertainment how he handles the surreal side of fame, which comes as a by-product of being a successful actor, Chalamet said, "I like how you said it, the way I understand it and the way I relate to it is I've gotten to work on things like this with Greta Gerwig, Florence (Pugh) and Saoirse.

"If it means the ability to get to work on projects you actually want to work on, it seems like a fair trade off."

Little Women is in cinemas now.
