Before he was film's favorite soft boy, Timothée Chalamet used to mod Xbox 360 controllers on YouTube

There's a lot of old videos of Timothée Chalamet that you can find on YouTube from his hilarious statistics rap to his stage performances in high school. Now there's more to add to the list: his Xbox 360 controller mod videos from 11 years ago.

Before he starred in Call Be By Your Name, Little Women, The King, and most recently Dune,  Chalamet created the channel ModdedControler360 where he would show off controllers that he painted. And yes, you can still watch these videos on YouTube.

"I had a Youtube channel people found," Chalamet told YouTuber Nate Hill while he was doing press interviews for Dune with co-star Zendaya. "I used to paint mod controllers."

"I would open them up and paint them and charge people $10," he said.

A then 14-year-old Chalamet made $30 from the hobby and was told by his parents to stop because he kept getting spray paint all over the house.

Before the actor admitted to the old hobby, Vice published an extensive investigation on whether or not ModdedController360 was Chalamet—the old videos only showed his hands.
