Is Timothee Chalamet the new Leonardo Dicaprio?

The 24-year-old actor has been impressing us in the last few years. Suddenly he is in every newly released movie, and he rocks the big screen every time! His recent boom remembers us to our beloved Leonardo DiCaprio in the '90s when he was magnetic for the cameras. Keep reading to know if we are in the presence of the new Leo!

  • Timothee Chalamet was born on December 27, 1997, in Manhattan, New York.
  • He is the ex-boyfriend of Lily-Rose Depp, Johnny Depp's daughter.
  • In October 2020, Wes Anderson's movie 'French Dispatch' is going to be released, and Timothee is on it. Also, in December 2020, the film 'Dune' will be available with him and Zendaya on it.
  • His most known character until now was Elio, in 'Call me by your name'. That film's producer was the one who had the hunch of him being the new Leo DiCaprio since 2018.

The American actor has been lately in all the new movies we watch. He first appeared on TV series like 'Royal Pains' and 'Homeland' in 2012. Just as DiCaprio in 'Parenthood' in 1990, his career started on TV.

Timothee also played some roles in art house films before his own 'Titanic' movie: Luca Guadagnino's Call Me By Your Name in 2017. Playing Elio was definitely the propellant of his career.

Actually I think he’s one of the best actors in the world,” 'Call Me By Your Name’s' producer Rodrigo Teixeira told Variety. “Maybe he’s the new Leonardo DiCaprio? (...) We’re so proud and happy to work with him.

Both have been nominated to the Oscars at an early age. Leonardo when he was 19 years old for 'What’s Eating Gilbert Grape', and Timothee at his 21 years old for 'Call me by your Name'.

Timothee in Little Women

Until now, the youngest actor has played roles in 22 movies, with also highlighted performances in 'Beautiful Boy', 'Lady Bird' and 'Little Women'. On the other side, the 45-year-old actor has been in 34. Not bad Timothee, you almost catch Leo!

Last but not least, these two have a bunch of fans crazy in love with them. They are besides of great actors, really handsome men that every girl on earth wants to date. Of course, some lucky ones achieve that goal for us.
