Timothée Chalamet is finally spilling the secrets that catapulted him to stardom. In an interview with Time, the Dune actor said a piece of acting advice given to him by one of his heroes has brought him tons of success.

“One of my heroes — I can’t say who or he’d kick my a** — he put his arm around me the first night we met and gave me some advice. ‘No hard drugs — and no superhero movies,'” he said,

He continued: “It’s a combination of luck and getting good advice early in my career not to pigeonhole myself.” In response to a question about his growth as an actor, the 25-year-old said he’s “figuring it out.”

“On my worst days, I feel a tension in figuring it out. But on my best days, I feel like I’m growing right on time.” He went to add that he doesn’t like being called a “movie star,” instead emphasizing on being called “an actor.”

“You’re just an actor,” he said, adding that the term “movie star” is cringeworthy and feels “like death.”
