Timothée Chalamet and Taylor Russell have sparked romance rumors after a source claims the two actors had a "brief fling" during the filming of their upcoming movie, 'Bones & All.'

The actors play romantic interests in the movie, which is directed by "Call Me By Your Name" director Luca Guadagnino.

Are Timothée Chalamet and Taylor Russell dating?

While Chalamet and Russell have not publicly confirmed nor denied that they are in a relationship, sources have claimed they are more than friends — or at least were once.

Timothee Chalamet and Taylor Russell reportedly had a 'fling' during filming.

According to a blind submission posted by celebrity gossip site DeuxMoi, the source alleged that a "burgeoning movie superstar known for dating his fair share of [nepotism] babies and co-stars had a brief fling with his co-lead during the filming of their new movie."

While the post didn't explicitly name Chalamet, 26, and Russell, 28, it didn't stop people from speculating that it was about them.

"They've been in touch since filming and hooked up a few times but nothing too serious," the post continued, adding that the two were recently at the Venice Film Festival, where they "reconnected."

Despite the theory, the post concluded by stating that Russell and Chalamet probably wouldn't be "coming out as a couple anytime soon," since they're both extremely "private people."

Fans have also been linking Chalamet and Russell.

The rumors first began after Chalamet and Russell made their debut at the Venice Film Festival for the screening of their new movie "Bones & All," which is set to make its theatrical premiere in November 2022.

While being photographed on the red carpet, Chalamet appeared to be gazing "lovingly" at Russell, as many fans have pointed out.

Others mentioned how close Russell and Chalamet seemed while doing interviews and snapping photos together.

In one interview, Russell gushed about working with Chalamet, crediting the "Dune" actor for making her feel like she "belonged."

“I think both of us had a feeling we were going to work together on the right thing,” Russell said, according to IndieWire.

“From the beginning with Timothée, he made a point to make me feel like I deeply belonged with this group of people," she continued, "that nothing I could do would be bad, and if I felt any sort of insecurity I could talk to him and he could comfort me. There’s a safety net we shared where there was no judgment.”

Chalamet also spoke highly of Russell, calling their new film "her movie."

"Taylor Russell, who is extraordinary. 'Bones & All' is really her movie. She brings so much [intensity] and vulnerability... it was just a joy ride to be there with her. It was one of the highest honors of my career," Chalamet said. 

Before being rumored to be in a relationship with Russell, Chalamet had been previously linked to Johnny Depp's daughter, Lily-Rose Depp.

The two dated on and off from October 2018 to April 2020, after first meeting while working together on Netflix's "The King."

Chalamet was also linked to actress Eiza Gonzalez after photos emerged of the two of them kissing in June 2020 while on vacation, though it seemed to fizzle out pretty quickly.
