Timothee Chalamet surprises Mexican fans by donning a gold luchador mask at the Dune: Part Two Mexico City premiere… after admitting it was ‘weird as hell’ to kiss Zendaya

Timothee Chalamet gave his Mexican fans a bit of a surprise by donning a gold luchador mask at the Mexico City premiere of Dune: Part Two.

The 28-year-old actor admitted in a 2020 interview that he was a “massive WWE fan” growing up, seemingly bringing that passion to the premiere.

He was seen walking the red carpet at the National Auditorium in Mexico City wearing the mask, which ostensibly honors the ‘lucha libre’ Mexican wrestling tradition that has roots dating back to the late 19th century.

The outing also comes after both Chalamet and his co-star Zendaya admitted it was ‘weird as hell’ to kiss each other on screen as they are such good friends.

The New York native stepped out in a stylish gray suit over a slightly unbuttoned black dress shirt.

The coat sleeves were also rolled up over the black dress shirt sleeves, with the actor also rocking a bizarre black Prada belt.

He completed his look with matching gray dress pants and stylish black dress boots for the premiere.

Both Chalamet and Zendaya starred as Paul Atreides and Chani in the first Dune movie released in 2021, although Chani was a much lesser presence.

She mainly appeared during unexplained visions that Paul would have, finally meeting her in the flesh at the end of the film.

The second film – adapted from the second half of Frank Herbert’s sweeping epic 1965 novel – follows Paul as he teams up with Chani and her Fremen people to exact revenge on those who destroyed his family.

As teased in the various trailers, Paul and Chani develop a romantic connection, despite the actors talking to them Entertainment Tonight about how ‘awkward’ it was to kiss each other on screen.

“It’s definitely weird,” Zendaya said of their on-screen kiss. “I think both of us are just like, “Okay. This is our job. OK, we’re going to do it.”

Timothée went on to call the intimate show ‘weird as hell’ because the two are ‘so close, platonic’.
