Timothée Chalamet has revealed the two rules Leonardo DiCaprio gave him when they first met in order to have a successful career in Hollywood, and they're not what you'd expect.
Although still at a young age, 26-year-old Chalamet has already achieved many awards in his career, including the Independent Spirit Award for Best Male Lead in 2018, and the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor in 2017.
The Call Me By Your Name star has also been nominated for various accolades, including an Academy Award, two Golden Globe Awards and three BAFTA Film Awards.
Having experienced so much success by his mid-20s, Chalamet has now revealed in a recent interview with British Vogue the two important rules he learnt from Leonardo DiCaprio early on.
Chalamet said DiCaprio, who he starred alongside in Don't Look Up, shared these rules with him when they first met in 2018: "No hard drugs and no superhero movies."
It's really as simple as that, according to DiCaprio!
Well, DiCaprio must surely be someone Chalamet looks up to when it comes to his career, with him having won 101 awards to date from a staggering 252 nominations. These include being nominated for six Academy Awards as an actor, six British Academy Film Awards and 11 Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The famed actor has claimed one from each of these, and also three Golden Globe Awards from 13 nominations.
Some of his more popular films include Titanic, The Revenant and The Wolf of Wall Street.
Further on in his interview with British Vogue, Chalamet went on to speak about how he felt life was 'moving at six million miles per hour' and how the pandemic allowed him to regroup.
He said: “When Covid hit, it required me to take a step back and be humbled to the idea that the greatest rock star… No, I don’t want to use that word, sorry, sorry. Scratch rock star. But [everyone has to] deal with, like, taxes and the dentist and real adulting, you know?
"I should have been trying to get my adult feet under myself a little bit earlier than I did."
The American actor continued: "I found myself having to really, you know, be honest with myself that where I’ve been able to get myself to in life was balls to the wall, like throwing everything at [it] at a young age that, by some miracle, got me to where I am.
"But to then transition to an adulting mindset."
