Rumors have been circulating recently that the “Call Me By Your Name” actor may have been trying out for the lead part in the next Ridley Scott movie “Gladiator 2.” Chalamet’s agent denied the rumors and wrote:

“I know one of these actors was shooting a film in the middle east for the past several months – and he hasn’t auditioned for anything in more than 7 years.”

“Nor should he have to,” wrote one user in response to the tweet.

But fans’ reactions to Brian’s tweet were divided, and many of them questioned Timothée’s ties in the industry. A few expressed thoughts that he is a privileged star kid.

“Hollywood is giving him special treatment,” one Twitter user wrote in response. “Chalamet is a nepo baby but a lot of people don’t know that, but he has a uncle in the industry that open a lot of doors for him.”

Chalamet’s grandfather was a writer and screenwriter named Harold Flender, and his uncle is a director named Rodman Flender.

Nicole Flender, Timothée’s mother, is a well-known performer who has appeared in the films “The Bird Watcher” and “In The Heat of Passion.” His sister Pauline Chalamet also happens to be an actor, having starred in The King Of Staten Island and HBO comedy The Sex Lives Of College Girls.
