Timothee Chalamet Ate Cherries, Fruit Roll-Ups For Cannibal Scenes In Bones And All

Timothee Chalamet ate cherries and chocolate to make cannibal scenes in his new movie look realistic.

Chalamet and Taylor Russell play cannibal young lovers on the run in Bones and All, the new movie by Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino.

Speaking to Slash Film, Russell revealed what they were actually scoffing in the gory cannibalism scenes.

"On a very practical note, Luca said that we were eating corn syrup," Russell said.

"But I know that I wasn't, because I remember the incredible effects team and the team who were handling all of that sort of stuff told me that it was maraschino cherries, dark chocolate, and Fruit Roll-Ups. If that sounds good to you, cool. If it doesn't, fair enough. But it was very sweet and [tastier] than anything else maybe you could imagine."

Based on the 2015 novel of the same name by Camille DeAngelis, Bones and All also stars Mark Rylance, Andre Holland and Chloe Sevigny. It premiered at the Venice Film Festival in Italy in September, where it was awarded the Silver Lion prize for best direction and the Marcello Mastrroianni Award for Best Young Actor or Actress for Russell.

Russell and Rylance are also up for Outstanding Lead Performance and Outstanding Supporting Performance, respectively at the 32nd Gotham Awards, which will be held on Nov 28.  

Bones and All (R21) opens in Singapore cinemas on Nov 24. — BANG SHOWBIZ
