1. His artistry is definitely from father to son

It's no exaggeration to say that Timothée Chalamet's parents are the two who garner the biggest number of daughters-in-law in the United States as they have a son who is not only dreamy handsome but also incredibly talented.

He was born on December 27, 1995 in Manhattan (New York). While he inherited the artistry from his mother Nicole Flender - a former Broadway dancer, his father Marc Chalamet is probably where Chalamet takes his romantic streak of a French guy from.

Not only his parents but also his big family are involved in art. Chalamet's sister is an actress in Paris. Chalamet's uncle is filmmaker Rodman Flender, his aunt is a television producer and writer Amy Lippman. Meanwhile, his grandfather is screenwriter Harold Flender, and his grandmother, Enid Flender, is a former dancer.

2. Having failed to be Spiderman but later becoming the second Dicaprio

Probably few people know that in the past, Timothée Chalamet competed with Tom Holland for the role of Spider-Man. No one dares to say if either of them is more suitable. However, thanks to that first failure, we are able to see an endearing, passionate Elio in Call Me by Your Name.

The glory of the Marvel universe is an undeniable temptation, especially for young actors like Chalamet - a person who is struggling to find a foothold in the Hollywood's hall of fame after a lot of supporting roles.

The failure was like a boost for him. He changed the roadmap from popular commercial film genre to the artistic film series. Movies, like Call Me by Your Name, seem quite confusing and more suitable for fastidious movie lovers as it needs time to be fully fathomed and also has some kind of unprecedented depths.

On the contrary, it is for these carefully selected films that help the actor assert himself in a position that few people can do.
