Timothée Chalamet Was an Xbox YouTuber Who Modded Controllers

Timothée Chalamet's latest film, Dune was released last weekend to positive reception and a record-breaking box-office opening for Warner Bros. Pictures. Following the success of the Denis Villeneuve sci-fi epic, a sequel announcement was inevitable.

But prior to starring in oscar-nominated films and big-budget enterprises, Chalamet was a bit of a gamer. The actor used to mod and design Xbox 360 controllers on his YouTube channel, appropriately titled ModdedController360. Chalamet spoke more about his early business in an interview with Nate Hill.

For a short period of time in 2010, the actor designed various 360 controllers through a variety of themes. If you're planning your Christmas presents early, a 15-year old Chalamet has a video showcasing a holiday-themed controller that you can gift to a lucky gamer.

The actor starts every single video with "what's good YouTube", as shown with another video showcasing a modded 360 controller with a blue and silver design. The actor recently spoke to Fortnite player Nate Hill about his brief business. Humbly amassing an impressive $30, the actor had to close his shop permanently, at the request of his parents:

I made three. My parents were like, 'There's paint all over the house, you can't do this anymore.'

Though his channel only has 3 videos, maybe he can continue his modded work one day? Of course, when he isn't starring in Hollywood blockbusters. The full interview with Chalamet and Zendaya can be seen above.
