Frank Ocean, a self-proclaimed fan of “Call Me By Your Name,” interviewed Timothée Chalamet, an Ocean superfan, for a V-Man feature that sent the Internet into cyber hyperventilation.

Ocean called Chalamet for the phone interview and immediately Chalamet was trying to contain his excitement.

“This is so exciting. It is an honor to speak to you, man. I’m such a huge fan. This is going to be a real test to keep my voice level and keep this as normal of a conversation as possible,” Chalamet says.

Ocean asks “Has anyone on the street called you Elio yet?” and Chalemet shared that he gets spotted more for his role in “Lady Bird.”

“That’s been happening. Though riding the 2 train or taking the M12 bus around the city, that hasn’t changed; I guess people don’t really give a fuck in New York. I actually get more people stopping me for Lady Bird, and going, “Is that the douchebag from ‘Lady Bird?’ So that’s awesome. I’ve seen certain actors, or musicians like you, keep a sense of integrity and mystery,” Chalamet says.

Ocean also pointed out why he thinks Elio was a good breakout role for Chalamet.

“I think it’s also good for you that this is your opening song,” Ocean says. “It’s such a proper foundation, to do roles like these that have so much heart and vulnerability in the very beginning, completely boutique or small, but on the lips of so many.”

Later in the interview, Chalamet starts to sing Ocean’s “Seigfried” lyrics to him causing Ocean to laugh.

“Don’t do that,” Ocean says.

The pair also discussed their mutual admiration for Joaquin Phoenix, the best places to eat in New York City and Sufjan Stevens.

The internet was thrilled that the two artists were able to connect.
