Ever since his breakthrough appearance in Luca Guadagnino's 2017 romance film Call Me By Your Name, Timothée Chalamet has quickly risen the ranks, becoming one of the most sought-out actors in the industry. He's become Hollywood's golden boy and everyone's favorite young heartthrob. The proof? Chalamet stars in two highly-anticipated features that release today—Denis Villeneuve's sci-fi epic Dune, alongside Zendaya, and Wes Anderson's latest feature The French Dispatch.
Chalamet's stellar performance in Call Me By Your Name earned him a tremendous amount of accolades and acclaim, as he was one of the youngest actors to receive an Academy Award nomination for the Best Actor category at the age of 22. The effects of his huge achievements made waves in his career, as he's been in a wide range of films since. From Greta Gerwig's two critically acclaimed films Lady Bird and Little Women, to Felix van Groeningen's heartbreaking drama Beautiful Boy, and David Michôd's epic war film The King, there isn't a single role that doesn't fit.
It's clear that the 25-year-old actor has continued moving up in the film industry, and it appears that 2021 is turning out to be his biggest year yet. From co-hosting this year's Met Gala to his roles in The French Dispatch and Dune, plus Adam McKay's star-studded black comedy Don't Look Up set to be released in December, the French-American star has clearly achieved a level of back-to-back successes that is rare to find in someone so young.
Of course, his success doesn't end here. Chalamet can soon add singing and dancing onto his already impressive resume as his upcoming projects include playing music legend Bob Dylan in the biopic Going Electric and the iconic role of Willy Wonka in the latest adaptation based on Roald Dahl's famous novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Following in the footsteps of Hollywood greats such as Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp for the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory prequel, Chalamet's career trajectory is a never-ending rise to the top as this film prepares to be one of the most anticipated yet.
The young heartthrob's effortless talent and good looks have all combined to create a superstar of a Hollywood figure. As a fashion icon as well, Chalemet's hair, jawline, and androgynous looks are signature to his fashion influence. Vogue has even praised him for "plying the boundary between traditional masculinity and femininity," and GQ ranked him in 2020's best-dressed man in the world. Moreover, the Hot Summer Nights actor recently became a brand ambassador for Cartier.
Chalamet's sparking influence provides a charm that is reminiscent of Old Hollywood, which the industry has welcomed with warm and open arms. As he continues to expand his collection of talents, we're excited to watch his rising trajectory.
