Is Timothée Chalamet the successor of Leonardo DiCaprio? Many think so. The art-house favoring half-French and half-American actor has captured the world’s attention with films like Call Me By Your Name, Little Women, Lady Bird, and more. But his pristine image has now been tarnished.
After reports of the Oscar nominee dating Kylie Jenner began circulating around social media, people began bashing the young star. Many thought that he was destroying his public image and disregarding the sage advice given by Leonardo DiCaprio for surviving in Hollywood by dating the Kardashian.
The One Important Advice Given To Timothée Chalamet By Leonardo DiCaprio
In an interview with British Vogue, Timothée Chalamet revealed the one life-changing advice given to him by Leonardo DiCaprio for surviving in Hollywood and having a great career. The Titanic actor had said, “No hard drugs and no superhero movies” to Chalamet. The magazine had also named him the successor of DiCaprio and the one who was carrying on the baton from a long line of actors. Here’s what the magazine wrote:
“A baton was placed in his hand, passed down the decades by James Dean and River Phoenix, David Cassidy, and Leonardo DiCaprio: Chalamet became boyfriend to an entire generation.”

However, it looks like Chalamet’s spell on the public has been broken and he has dropped the precious metaphorical baton. But why? The young actor has seemingly followed DiCaprio’s words totally. It’s because he has reportedly begun dating one of the Kardashians, Kylie Jenner.
While the Kardashians are famous, they don’t seem to have a pristine reputation in the eyes of the general public. So fans of the star think that DiCaprio should have added a ‘no dating Kardashians’ clause to his advice as well.

Recently, People magazine reported that Chalamet and Kylie Jenner are involved but the relationship isn’t anything serious. The site said, “[They] hang out every week, [but] it’s not serious. She is getting to know him. Kylie is having fun. After years of back and forth with Travis [Scott], she just wants to date without any pressure.” It now remains to be seen how the relationship progresses.
