However, Timothée’s agent, Brian Swardstrom, quickly responded to these claims and refuted the viral rumors via a tweet.

“I know one of these actors was shooting a film in the middle east for the past several months – and he hasn’t auditioned for anything in more than 7 years,” Swardstrom tweeted.


Brian’s tweet sparked a conversation around nepotism, privilege, and industry connections. Many internet users brought Timothée’s success into question.
