Timothée Chalamet, another internet celebrity, asked Leonardo DiCaprio about the most important rule he followed in his career.
The Academy Award victor gave the Academy Award nominee the piece of advice to live by a single, straightforward credo: “No hard drugs and no superhero movies.” Therefore, there is no longer a possibility that DiCaprio or Chalamet will join the MCU.
Before, in the previous year, Chalamet divulged the piece of advice; however, he did not mention that Leonardo DiCaprio, who played Wolf of Wall Street, was the one to give it to him.
“One of my heroes — I can’t say who or he’d kick my ass — he put his arm around me the first night we met and gave me some advice,” Chalamet stayed coy at the time.
Now, Chalamet has established a place for himself in the annals of history by becoming the first man to appear alone on the cover of British Vogue. The actor from “Bones and All” mentioned that in spite of his early success, he has “always felt” older than his age (he is currently 26).
Chalamet went on to say, “I had a delusional dream in my early teenage years to have, in my late teenage years, an acting career And in my late teenage years, working on ‘Homeland’ and starting to do theatre in New York, I felt like I reduced my goal to something more realistic, which was to work in theatre and hopefully make enough money doing either a TV show or something I could sustain myself [with]. And then it felt like every dream came true, exponentially. And then life is moving at six million miles per hour.”
In the film adaptation of the musical “Wonka,” in which he stars alongside Olivia Colman, Paterson Joseph, and Rowan Atkinson, Chalamet showcases his talent as an actor in the theater by leading seven of the musical numbers. Paul King, who directed “Paddington,” will take the helm for the “Willy Wonka” prequel, and its release date is set for December 15, 2023.
Is it possible that Chalamet will continue to showcase all three of his talents on screen? The actor known for his role in “Dune: Part Two” did describe Lady Gaga as “fascinating.” The Oscar winner and “House of Gucci” star will be starring in the upcoming superhero film “Joker: Folie à Deux” opposite Joaquin Phoenix, who won an Academy Award for his role as the Joker.
During his appearance at the Venice Film Festival, Timothée Chalamet not only put an end to rumors that he would be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe but also warned the audience that “societal collapse is in the air.”
“I think it’s hard to be alive now,” Chalamet stated. “I think societal collapse is in the air. That’s why hopefully this movie [‘Bones and All’] will matter.”
The novel “Bones and All” by Camille DeAngelis was adapted for the screen by David Kajganich (“Suspiria”), who also directed the movie. “Call Me By Your Name” auteur Luca Guadagnino directs.
