Steady on Timmy! Timothée Chalamet, the 27-year-old Hollywood heartthrob, made has made the headlines after he was caught colliding with a camera on set while shooting a Chanel Bleu fragrance commercial in New York City. 

The incident, which was captured on video by TikTok user @mickmicknyc, quickly went viral, with fans even speculating about the cause of the collision. To me, it looks like the jib was meant to be propelled backward into a wide shot, but it seems it instead bolted forward into Chalamet - ouch!
