It was his captivating portrayal in Call Me By Your Name (2017) that first lit up the screens and hearts, cementing his career in the industry. Since then, his ascent has been meteoric, punctuated by a string of blockbuster successes. From the Oscar-winning Dune: Part One (2019) to the highly anticipated Wonka (2023), Chalamet's performances continue to captivate audiences worldwide.

Leonardo DiCaprio's advice to Timothee Chalamet

However, did you know Leonardo DiCaprio once advised Timothée Chalamet not to get involved with any superhero movies? Yes, that's exactly what happened. The duo first collaborated in the 2021’s comedy sci-fi Don't Look Up, which also stars Jennifer Lawrence in the lead. Since then it seems like DiCaprio and Chalamet have become quite friendly with each other.

Timothée first revealed about the advice back in 2022, saying that DiCaprio told him, “No hard drugs and no superhero movies.” In his over three decades of career, Leonardo never tried any superhero flick yet, and interestingly so as Timothée. Hence, it can be assumed why Leonardo advised Chalamet something serious.

What did Timothee Chalamet reply to Leonardo DiCaprio?

In a recent interview with The New York Times during the promotional tour for the upcoming Dune: Part Two, Timothée Chalamet once again reflected on his relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio's advice. Chalamet shared insights, suggesting that while DiCaprio might have firmly closed the door on starring in comic book flicks, his own stance is more refined. He hinted that unlike DiCaprio, he has not entirely ruled out the possibility, leaving a hope of openness to exploring such roles in the future. This revelation adds depth to Chalamet's perspective on career choices and highlights the differing approaches within the realm of Hollywood stardom.
