Timothée Chalamet made history by becoming the first person to appear alone on the cover of the print edition of British Vogue.
The actor wears a pearl necklace on the cover of this month’s magazine, photographed by editor Edward Enninful.
In an interview inside, Timothy reveals that Leonardo DiCaprio gave him some simple career advice while working with Netflix’s comedy film “Don’t Look Up” last year.
“There are no drugs and there are no superhero movies,” he says Leo told him.
Little Women star Timothy is known for his style and sleek red carpet looks.
In one photo from the October edition, the 26-year-old cuts his trademark curls into a Mohawk, while in another he can be seen wearing a leather jacket and leather pants.
Enninful said he was waiting for “the moment that felt right” to put a man on the cover of the fashion monthly for the first time in its 106-year history.
He describes Timothy as “a young actor at the peak of his early career who is reminiscent of Deans and DiCaprio of decades past, but whose relationship with a new generation breaks with old-fashioned masculinity”.
In a video interview with Enninful, Timothée said it was an “honor” to be on the cover of Vogue, joining stars like Rihanna, Billie Eilish and Lady Gaga.
He also talked about how the Covid pandemic made him realize he had to deal with “real adulthood” just like everyone else.
“Taxes, dentists and real bar mitzvahs, you know?
“I should have tried to get my adult feet under me a little earlier than I did,” he said.

Timothée may be the first person to appear on a print cover alone in the UK, but some Twitter users point out that Zayn Malik appeared on a digital cover in 2018.
The magazine’s sister publication US Vogue made global headlines in 2020 when his former One Direction bandmate Harry Styles appeared on its cover wearing a dress.
Timothy became an international star after appearing in the 2017 film “Call Me By Your Name,” which earned him an Oscar nomination.
He will appear in the upcoming prequel to “Willy Wonka,” a musical about the character’s early life.
