Timothée Chalamet and Tilda Swinton attend the "The French Dispatch" photocall during the 74th annual Cannes Film Festival on July 13, 2021 in Cannes, France.

After Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch premiered at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday (July 13), Tilda Swinton decided to prank one of her co-stars.

As we previously reported, standing ovations have long been a dramatic feature of Cannes Film Festival premieres – so much so that Adam Driver lit up a cigarette during his movie Annette. This time, the Suspiria actress was caught on camera (and jumbo screen) sticking her “Tilda Swinton” reserved seat sign, on the back of co-star Timothée Chalamet without him knowing.

Video of her classicly smooth prank was taken by Variety executive editor Ramin Setoodeh, who posted it to Twitter.

Twitter loved Swinton’s smooth moves and praised her success:

One user cleverly played on Chalamet’s Call Me By Your Name, tweeting: “Call me by my name.”

Bill Murray was also in attendance for The French Dispatch‘s premiere along with Hippolyte Girardot, Adrien Brody, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro and Lyna Khoudri.
