I have a confession to make: I never read Little Women. I'm sure it was assigned in one English class, but I literally don't even remember the SparkNotes. Furthermore, I made no effort to watch any of the hundred television and film adaptations. That's about to change.
Today, the trailer for Greta Gerwig's (Lady Bird) rendition—starring Emma Watson, Saoirse Ronan, and Meryl Streep—finally dropped. Honestly, the whole thing looks amazing, but it’s Timothée Chalamet who will get my butt in that seat. Exhibit A:
Holy cheekbones, Batman!
Timothée plays Laurie—short for Theodore Laurence—who falls in love with Jo March (Saoirse), a girl who writes and doesn't really want anything to do with him, despite their insane chemistry. I know the whole entire point is that women are more than just one half of a love story, but...how dare?
Most of us fell in love with Timothée during his Call Me by Your Name press tour with Armie Hammer, but I promise you, Little Women Timothée is hotter than CMBYN and Lady Bird Timothée combined. Exhibit B:
Then he starts professing his love to Jo, who calls him a "disaster," and I'm full-on sobbing over two people I know zero about. I know I'm not alone in this. Here's what Twitter had to say:

This quote is brought to you by Cosmo’s very own Sarah Weldon in our group chat. Again, I have not seen any single version of Little Women, but I know in my heart of hearts that I agree.
Now, without further ado, please enjoy this peak Timothée content:
