Are Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya Hollywood’s newest couple? Some people think they might be! On Monday, January 20, one lucky fan ran into the two young stars shopping together at one of New York City’s Bed Bath & Beyond locations. Both actors were bundled up in multiple layers as they entered the store, but that didn’t stop them from getting recognized. Timothée and Zendaya graciously took some pictures with one of the store’s employees — the Little Women star even tried on the worker’s sunglasses for the snap.
After she met Timothée and Zendaya, the excited Bed Bath & Beyond employee shared the photos with her friend who posted them to social media. Fans were quick to share the images and they eventually went viral, which led to rumors about the actors’ possible relationship.

“TIMOTHÉE AND ZENDAYA WERE HANGING OUT IN NEW YORK TODAY THEY WENT TO BED BATH & BEYOND OUR FIRST TIMDAYA MOMENT,” one fan posted on Twitter. Another added, “The world would end if Timothée and Zendaya were dating.”
A third wrote, “Timothée hanging out with Zendaya………. DUNE NATION IT’S BEGINNING.”
For those who don’t know, Timothée and Zendaya first met in January 2019 after they were both cast in the upcoming movie reboot of the fan-favorite, 1980s film Dune. The movie — which is based on a science fiction novel of the same name by Frank Herbert — is described as a “space-faring adventure story that is rich with political intrigue and complex machinations.” Timothée is set to play the role of Paul, while Zendaya will portray his love interest, Chani.
The movie is currently in post-production and has a release date set for late 2020, which means that the two finished filming a while ago. So, this begs the question: was their epic shopping trip just two costars hanging out or the start of a new Hollywood love story?
