Timothee Chalamet Reveals That "No Hard Drugs, No Superhero Movies" Advice Came From Leonardo DiCaprio

You may recall Timothee Chalamet revealing that one of his heroes gave him some sage advice when his career was just kicking-off, and the Dune star has now named his adviser as Leonardo DiCaprio.

Timothee Chalamet was already poised to hit it big in Hollywood when he landed the lead role in Dune after impressing in the likes of Call Me By Your Name and Little Women, but playing Paul Atreides in Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi adaptation pretty much made him a household name.

When an actor reaches a certain level of fame, it almost seems inevitable that one of the major comic book franchises will come calling, and while most up-and-coming stars would jump at the chance to play a superhero, Chalamet has (so far) chosen to take a different path - possibly based on the advice of one of his heroes!

Last year, Chalamet revealed how he's able to keep a level head amid all the attention. “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: No hard drugs, and no superhero movies.”

Now, during a new interview with Vogue, the Willy Wonka actor has decided to name his adviser as none other than Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood and Don't Look Up star Leonardo DiCaprio.

DiCaprio has famously stayed away from big studio franchises over the years, so it's fair to say he has been taking his own advice. Will Chalamet follow-suit? You have to believe the highly in-demand actor has already had some offers, so it'll be interesting to see what the future holds.

Would you like to see Chalamet play a Marvel or DC Comics hero or villain? If so, which character do you think he'd be best suited to? Drop us a comment down below.
