Timothée Chalamet, a rising star in Hollywood, has been taken under Leonardo DiCaprio’s wing and given some sensible, PG-rated professional advice, including “No hard drugs and no superhero movies.”
The witty advise from Chalamet’s “Don’t Look Up” co-star, age 47, was shared by the actor with British Vogue on Thursday. DiCaprio, a party animal who, according to Page Six, was most recently seen having a boys night out on Tuesday after being photographed with Gigi Hadid this week, may have some good advice. The Oscar winner for “Revenant” is renowned for being picky when it comes to his movie projects.
Being the first man to ever appear alone on the print cover of British Vogue, Chalamet, who received an Oscar nomination for his leading performance in the 2017 romantic film “Call Me by Your Name,” is charting his own career achievement.
Chalamet, a New Yorker who began his career as an adolescent actor in the drama series “Homeland” in 2012 before moving into film with “Men, Women & Children” and “Interstellar,” has found fame to be occasionally difficult.
He confessed, “I had a false desire in my early teenage years to have, in my late teenage years, an acting career. The pandemic humbled me and maybe made me feel unprepared for maturity.”
He said to the magazine, “I should have been trying to get my grownup feet under myself a little bit earlier than I did.” “I discovered that I had to be really, you know, honest with myself about the fact that where I’ve been able to get myself in life was balls to the wall, like throwing everything into it from a young age that, by some miracle, got me to where I am.”
Chalamet has established himself as a fashion icon off the big screen with eye-catching ensembles like sequin sweatshirts and a backless halter top. Notably, Chalamet has not yet formally joined forces with a fashion designer for a campaign. Like DiCaprio, it appears that he is quite deliberate about the business transactions he accepts.
“I felt strongly that I didn’t want others and I really didn’t want to see myself cashing in when success came my way,” he said.
