Timothée Chalamet Reveals He Had A Secret Xbox 360 YouTube Channel

The star of Dune recently confirmed that he had his own YouTube channel after it was discovered by fans.


During the press tour for the newly released film, Dune, the star of the blockbuster Timothée Chalamet revealed that he had his own YouTube channel dedicated to custom Xbox 360 controllers.

The actor, who plays Paul Atreides in the film, and his co-star Zendaya, who plays Chani, were recently talking about their experience with video games in a new interview with YouTuber Nate Hill. The pair spoke about the consoles and games they played growing up, with Chalamet mentioning that he got "hooked" on Luigi's Mansion and Super Smash Bros, and liked playing Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare.

At one point during the interview, Chalamet revealed that his fans found his old YouTube channel, which was called "moddedcontroller360", going on to confirm that the mystery person behind the camera was in fact him.

"I used to paint my controllers, I did three, and I spray painted them [...] I would open them up and paint them," Chalamet said. "I would charge people $10."

The star of Dune added that he made "30 bucks" after spray painting his Xbox 360 controllers and selling them, also adding that it took him "five hours" to paint one.

Recently, Fortnite added new Dune-inspired character skins to the game in collaboration with the release of the new film, which Nate Hill also revealed to the co-stars during the interview, to their surprise.

Chalamet also spoke about how he was never "that good at Fortnite" saying that the "building was difficult for me", then jokingly asked if "we can do a Travis Scott concert except Dune" with the film's composer, Hans Zimmer.
