ON ADJUSTING TO FAME round his mates: “I felt like, ‘Was I gloating?’ or ‘Was it too self-deprecating?’ It just felt like this impossible task. But then over time, the more comfortable I got in my skin.”

SINCE THEN his sizzling streak has continued, blowing previous the bounds normally in place for the heartthrob. “It’s been so validating to see and hear people noticing the versatility in my work.”

HIS TURN because the psychotic highschool quarterback Jeff within the sapphic comedy Bottoms proved to be an unforgettable expertise. “We joked, ‘God must hate the gays,’ because we had to deal with locusts, lightning, and torrential storms to finish this brilliant movie.

IN THE IDEA OF YOU, Galitzine and Hathaway had been clear about making the pulpy fanfic serve a objective. “We both viewed the intimacy as integral to the storyline but not salacious. I think female pleasure has been reduced to the sidelines for so long, and it felt like we were on a mission to really make an important movie for women turning 40 and later on, and just giving women a sense of ownership and empowerment. And that sounds almost silly to say, but that’s where we’ve been. I think as an industry, we have needed to improve upon the implicit misogyny that I think has existed. We just work really well together. I think it’s because we share a lot of values
and we just really get on.”

HIS TRIP to SXSW with The Idea of You was notably shifting. The followers’ enthusiasm left Hathaway in tears. As for Galitzine, “It’s filling me with confidence, a quiet confidence.”
