Kid Cudi’s influence knows no bounds.
The rapper’s music is often credited with helping his fans through tough times, with “Saturday Night Live” alum Pete Davidson once saying Cudi’s music “saved my life.”
And it appears Cudi’s words are just as powerful as his music. Breakout actor Timothee Chalamet told GQ that Cudi’s words of wisdom saved his acting career.
In 2014, Chalamet “was broke and struggling in ways he hadn’t expected” after his role in “Interstellar” failed to foster significant new opportunities.
After sitting with Cudi backstage at the musician’s concert, Cudi gave Chalamet some life and career changing advice.
“The takeaway was: Are you, Timothee, the sort of person who can’t possibly live any other way? ‘F**k yeah,’” Chalamet said.
Chalamet, 22, propelled to stardom with roles in “Call Me By Your Name” and “Lady Bird”.
