Actor Timothée Chalamet, known for his roles in acclaimed films, revealed that despite Leonardo DiCaprio’s advice against superhero movies, he would consider signing on for one if the script and director were great.

Chalamet credits watching Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” as a pivotal moment that sparked his interest in acting.

“Well, Leonardo DiCaprio said to me, ‘No superhero movies, no hard drugs.’ Which I thought was very good,” Chalamet said.

“I follow them both! But the movie that made me want to act is a superhero movie, ‘The Dark Knight.’ If the script was great, if the director was great, I’d have to consider it.”

“When I was 12 years old, after attending one of my sister Pauline’s [ballet] performances, I petitioned my Mom and grandma to see Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’ with me,” Chalamet said.

“We went to AMC Empire 25 in Times Square for a 7:30 screening. I left that theater a changed man, and I’m serious about that. Heath Ledger‘s performance in that film was visceral and viral to me, and I now had the acting bug,” he said.

Chalamet has garnered critical acclaim and award nominations for his performances in various films, including “Call Me by Your Name” and “Dune,” and his diverse filmography has showcased his talent and versatility in the industry.
