Watch in Cinema

Since his breakout performance in Call Me by Your Name, Timothée Chalamet has become a critical darling and certified heartthrob as Greta’s Gerwig go-to soft boy, Paul Atreides in science epic Dune, and (controversially) a young Willy Wonka.

After a thorough examination of what makes Pedro Pascal a bona fide zaddy, the Thirst Experts are back to examine the hotness of the beautiful boy himself, and they’re asking all the burning questions: Why does his relationship with Kylie Jenner elicit confusion and rage? What exactly is going on in the Wonka trailer? Is he the artful dream boat we think he is or is he just French?

Part Ted Talk part gossiping with friends, Thirst Talks is a live panel show that celebrates desire, crushes, and shameless thirst with a dash of cultural criticism. The show that asks why we think our crushes are hot and what collective thirst says about the culture.
