The ‘blonde’ artist publicly voiced his appreciation for the Luca Guadagnino-directed film in a Tumblr post back in December, with Ocean praising actor Michael Stuhlbarg in particular for his part in the movie.

Ocean has now taken on the role of interviewer for a new V Man feature, with the musician interviewing the Oscar-nominated Chalamet over the phone for the piece. In the chat, the pair discussed Chalamet’s rising profile – with Ocean asking if anyone had called him by his character’s name, Elio, in the street – as well as breaking down the best places to hang out in New York and Los Angeles.
Other subjects covered included fashion (Chalamet at one point rapped the “please don’t touch my Raf” line from Ocean’s A$AP Mob collaboration ‘RAF’), Chalamet’s high school rapping video and movie soundtracks – with Ocean replying to Chalamet’s insistence that he should score a film by saying: “Yeah, one of these days.”
Last month, Chalamet showed his appreciation for Cardi B by rapping ‘Bartier Cardi’ on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
