Selena Gomez has been using her social media to urge her fans to vote in the upcoming US presidential election and after casting her vote, she decided to check in on her pal Timothée Chalamet as he stopped by to do the same.
Taking to her Instagram, Selena, 28, streamed a live video of her chatting with the Call Me By Your Name actor, 24.
Timothée was in New York at an early voting station and revealed he had been waiting in line for over an hour.
He told Selena: ‘Right now I’m literally voting at my early voting station in New York at Madison Square Garden which feels particularly metaphorical because I’ve seen many great things happen here.
‘So, I’m hoping another great thing happens today, well, on November 3.’
Selena pointed out that it looked like a lot of people had turned out to vote, with Timothée revealing that queues were as long as four hours in some parts of Brooklyn.
‘It’s really moving to see this many people show up… it feels like people are motivated,’ he said.
The presidential election will see current president Donald Trump go head-to-head with Joe Biden, with Timothée making it clear that he doesn’t want Trump to be reelected.
‘Oh man, I really hope this guy loses,’ he told Selena. ‘I think in New York we’re good, voting wise, victory wise.’
Selena agreed as she told her close pal: ‘My stomach hurts because I’m so nervous.’
She had wanted to vote in person, but revealed she ‘couldn’t for certain situations’ so cast her vote via the mail instead.
Her live video with Timothée comes as celebrities have been calling on fans to go out and vote ahead of the election next month.
Blake Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds were seen casting their votes together, with the funny couple making a joke of it being Canadian star Ryan’s first time voting in the US.
Gossip Girl star Blake, who was trolled by Ryan for photo-shopping shoes onto her feet, captioned her post: ‘It was Ryan’s first time. He was understandably scared. It all happened so fast. Like, REALLY fast. He wept. I pretended to weep. Then he called all his friend. #voteearly.’
Ryan teased: ‘This is my first time voting in America. I’d like to thank my wife Blake for making my first time so gentle and loving. It was super scary at first, then exciting and now I’m a little tired. But proud. #VoteEarly.’
Friends star Jennifer Aniston was also seen voting early and as she did so, she encouraged her fans to follow suit, urging them to be responsible and not to vote for Kanye West because they think it’s funny.
‘It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible,’ she wrote online.
Kanye has put himself in the running for president this year and reportedly spent an addition $3million (£2million) on his presidential election campaign recently – despite polling at just 2%.
