For many of us, the Harry Potter books and movie franchise was a big part of our childhoods. Apparently, this was also the case for Timothée Chalamet, who sent the Twitterverse into meltdown after he wore a Slytherin jumper in a press appearance.
To give a bit of context to this story, thanks to the premiere of Dune, we’ve been treated to some very dreamy Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet fashion moments, but none of us were quite prepared for this one.
In a recent press appearance for Dune, fans couldn’t believe their eyes when they spotted that he was wearing a Slytherin sweater. Not only hinting that he’s a big Harry Potter fan, but also that he is in fact a Slytherin (one of the four Hogwarts houses).

Though Slytherin is synonymous with villains in the Wizarding world, like Tom Riddle and Bellatrix Lestrange, this news has led many of us to rethink our house allegiance—how can we now proudly rep Gryffindor when Slytherin has Timothée?
Like us, the HP corner of Twitter went wild for the image of Timothée in an emerald green zip-up, with the Slytherin crest displayed proudly on his chest.
One Twitter user wrote: “Timothée Chalamet wearing a Slytherin sweater is something I didn't know I needed.”

Another said: “As if @RealChalamet could get hotter here he comes repping the Slytherin attire like a goddamn modern-day Draco Malfoy”

A third tweeted: “Might have screamed when I learned that Timothée Chalamet is Team Slytherin.”
I knew @RealChalamet was pretty cool- but now I know he’s a fellow #Slytherin he’s even cooler ✊🏻💚🐍October 20, 2021
Though sadly we’ll likely never see him in a Harry Potter-related movie or series, despite fans calling for it, at least there’s no shortage of new Timothée content, with both Dune and The French Dispatch hitting theatres this month.
