Timothée Chalamet is currently one of the top actors working in Hollywood, ever since Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me by Your Name.” He’s starred in critical favorites like “Lady Bird” and “Beautiful Boy,” and headlining the Oscar-winning science fiction blockbuster “Dune,” and its upcoming sequel. Now he is being mentored by the top actor of the Generation X era.
Chalamet revealed that Leonardo DiCaprio gave him some great advice. Timothée revealed to British Vogue the two main pieces of career advice that Leo gave him.
“No hard drugs and no superhero movies.”
Chalamet hinted at the “celebrity friend” who gave him that advice. He kept the identity anonymous because of a possible a** kicking back in 2021.
DiCaprio and Chalamet co-starred in Adam McKay’s 2021 satirical comedy, “Don’t Look Up,” last December. The film nominated for a best picture Oscar.
That advice is working out well for Chalamet so far. He will star as a young Willy Wonka in Paul King’s origin story “Wonka,” along with reprising the role of Paul Atreides in Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune: Part Two” with Zendaya, Florence Pugh, and Austin Butler.
