Timothée Chalamet is one of the hottest young actors around, and Harry Styles is easily one of the most in-demand pop stars. There really isn't a better celeb-on-celeb combo right now, and when i-D Magazine brought the two together for an interview, what they chose to talk about surprised a lot of people.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
