Timothee Chalamet is coming to be considered as the new Leonardo DiCaprio in terms of huge popularity at an early age and dating with many celebrities. Call Me By Your Name made Chalamet a global Icon, the way Titanic played a pivotal role in DiCaprio’s life

Timothée Chalamet, 22, has sparked a Chalamania equal to Leonardo DiCaprio’s Leomania in the late 1990s. Before his own Titanic—Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name —Chalamet originally starred on TV shows like Royal Pains and Homeland, as well as in arthouse films like Men, Women, and Children and Miss Stevens. Timothée Chalamet’s journey to millennial pin-up was accelerated in a way that could only happen in the age of reposts and double-taps. His rabid fan base arose fully formed from what most people assumed would be a low-budget indie film.

DiCaprio and Chalamet both learned piano to embrace the character magnificently

In Call Me By Your Name, Timothée Chalamet learned to play the piano. When Leonardo DiCaprio was younger, he used to play the organ. Lourdes, Madonna’s daughter, dated Chalamet. Bridget Hall, Naomi Campbell, Bijou Phillips, and Helena Christensen all appear on DiCaprio’s dating resume. Chalamet has underlined his cool with more than a wink to the camera, seamlessly switching to French in interviews, yelling out Cardi B in acceptance speeches, and conversing on the phone with Frank Ocean. Is he about to form his own Peach Posse?

DiCaprio was a Vermeer picture come to life, yet he went practically undetected until his breakthrough in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, following which he featured on Interview’s June 1994 cover. In Nancy Jo Sales’ renowned 1998 New York magazine article of DiCaprio, a gossip writer said, “Even at the Basketball Diaries party at the Hard Rock Café, no one was paying much attention to him.”

Leonardo achieved glamour at an early age so Chalamet

Leonardo DiCaprio was unstoppable for around eight films, from The Basketball Diaries, until The Beach. DiCaprio was courting both fans and the press as a cheeky newbie who flirted with MTV anchor Daisy Fuentes and partied with “The Pussy Posse,” a cherubic pin-up with a Cheshire grin. Tobey Maguire, magician David Blaine, and actor Lukas Haas were among the group. In New York, they frequented nightclubs and clubs such as Jet 19, Shine, and Sky Bar.

Chalamet is faddish among the girl fans, the way DiCaprio was

Regardless of dates, parties, or thin frames, it’s his boldness as a young actor that bears the most resemblance to DiCaprio’s chameleonic ability. Chalamet is the king of broodiness (see Ladybird, Homeland), and his unflinching confidence and wounded posture in Call Me By Your Name proves he can act. He was even nominated for the Academy Award for Call Me By Your Name.
