Timothée Chalamet shares advice he got from Leonardo DiCaprio: ‘No hard drugs and no superhero movies’

Leonardo DiCaprio has taken Hollywood It boy Timothée Chalamet under his wing, giving him some practical — and PG-rated — career advice: “No hard drugs and no superhero movies.”

Chalamet, 26, shared cheeky advice from her 47-year-old ‘Don’t Look Up’ co-star with British Vogue on Thursday. As Page Six reports, the entire knowledge of party boy DiCaprio, who was spotted having a bros night out on Tuesday after being spotted with potential new love interest Gigi Hadid this week, is on target. The “Revenant” Oscar winner has been notorious about his movie roles.

Chalamet, who earned an Oscar nomination for her lead role in the 2017 romance drama “Call Me By Your Name,” is charting her career success, appearing alone on print, as a fan favorite and fashion star. Has become the first person to Cover of British Vogue.

Fame has sometimes been challenging for Chalamet, a New Yorker who made her debut as a teen in the 2012 drama series “Homeland” and transitioned to film with “Men, Women and Children” and “Interstellar.”

“I had a delusional dream for an acting career, in my early teens, in my late teens,” he told British Vogue, explaining that the pandemic humbled him and might not have prepared him for adulthood.

“I should have done it a little earlier than trying to get my adult feet under me,” he told the magazine. “I found myself really, you know, be honest with myself that where I’ve been able to bring myself to life was balls on the wall, like throwing everything [it] At a young age, by some miracle, I got to where I am.”

Off the big screen, Chalamet has solidified itself as a fashion force, with headline-grabbing looks like sequin hoodies and backless halter tops. Notably, Chalamet has yet to officially partner with a designer for a fashion campaign. It seems that, like DiCaprio, he is quite strategic about the business deals he agrees to.

“When [success] came my way, I felt very special that I didn’t want people – and I really don’t want to see myself – cashing in,” he told British Vogue.
