Timothée Chalamet has admitted he was "embarrassed" after pictures of him kissing his then-girlfriend Lily-Rose Depp on a yacht went viral last year.
The 24-year-old Call Me by Your Name actor was snapped relaxing with 21-year-old Depp, his The King co-star, in September 2019.
Speaking to GQ, Chalamet said the images left him red-faced and insisted that the pictures were not staged.
"I went to bed that night thinking that was one of the best days of my life," he said.
"I was on this boat all day with someone I really loved, and closing my eyes, I was like, indisputably, 'That was great.' And then waking up to all these pictures, and feeling embarrassed, and looking like a real nob? All pale?"
"And then people are like: This is a PR stunt. A PR stunt?! Do you think I'd want to look like that in front of all of you?!"
Chalamet is one of Hollywood's most sought-after young stars. He has starring roles in keenly awaited sci-fi epic Dune, set for release next year, and in Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch. He is also set to take the lead in a forthcoming Bob Dylan biopic.
