How I Met Your Father makes fun of Timothée Chalamet’s body. This is a common joke in the actor’s 2021 movies, after getting a lot of attention worldwide for his role in 2017’s Call Me By Your Name. The 26-year-old actor has become a box office hit. Timothée Chalamet has been called one of the most influential young actors in Hollywood. Chalamet has become a modern pop culture icon because of his roles in movies like The Hunger Games, comedies, and dramas. In HIMYF, episode 7, he is mentioned very importantly.
This year, Timothée Chalamet starred in three of the year’s biggest movies: Dune, The French Dispatch, and Don’t Look Up. Two of them are up for Best Picture. Most actors would love to be where Chalamet is right now, but that doesn’t mean the movies he’s in aren’t going to point out his flaws. Timothy Chalamet’s lack of muscle is made fun of in both The French Dispatch and Dune, focusing on his fighting skills.
How I Met Your Father on Hulu keeps up with the trend of making fun of Chalamet’s body. This comes after Valentina tells Sophie that she’s styling Chalamet at work. Afterward, How I Met Your Father moves to the future when Sophie’s son asks, “Timothée Chalamet, the professional wrestler? I can’t believe this.” This is what it looks like in the future of How I Met Your Father. Chalamet seems to have taken the criticism that he doesn’t have a lot of muscle to heart and has made his strength his top priority.
As of 2050, in the universe where How I Met Your Father takes place, the actor Chalamet is no longer known as a skinny actor. Instead, he is one of the best-known professional wrestlers.
While Dune and The French Dispatch were making fun of Timothée Chalamet’s muscles with the actor in on the joke. HIMYF’s jab is still done very lightheartedly. Future Sophie says that “back then, he was just a little movie star”. This seems to downplay that he is one of the most well-known names in modern pop culture. But it also shows that his physical strength will keep him famous. If he gets fat in the future, the joke will be on 2021’s pop culture when people make fun of how thin he is now.
In How I Met Your Father, one thing that makes it fun is that Future Sophie can tell stories about what will happen to celebrities or other people in her time. This trick was used with Future Ted in How I Met Your Mother. And it was also used in How I Met Your Father. How I Met Your Father is set in 2022, nearly a decade after the original series. This allows the same jokes about pop culture to be made in a more modern setting. There are many pop culture references in the finale of How I Met Your Mother that is pretty old now. Especially since Timothée Chalamet had only just made his film debut the year before the show aired. When the spinoff series comes out in 2032, likely, the show’s celebrity references will still be popular. But it’s doing so in a very clever way.
