Timothée Chalamet is ‘Gen Zs answer to Leo’ – but these celebs could take that crown

Don't Worry Darling star Florence Pugh has hailed her Dune: Part Two co-star Timothée Chalamet Gen Z's answer to Leonardo Dicaprio.

He is charming, handsome and unbelievably talented, so the comparison is a compliment within itself. Timothée Chalamet and Dicaprio have previously been spotted together, with both finding success in their early careers.

But we can't give all the heartthrob credit to Chalamet, he's hot but surely there are other contenders for that coveted Gen Z heartthrob crown?

Before we go on, it's worth noting that Gen Z's are anyone born between 1997 and 2012, millennials however are born between 1981 and 1996. So many of these celebs are actually millennials themselves – but that doesn't mean they can't be eye candy for Gen Z's right?

We mean, at 48 Leo is actually a Gen X and he is many millennials number one celeb crush. Anyway, here are five other celebs we think could take the crown.

Harry Styles

Who else other than the British heartthrob?

The 29-year-old 'As it Was' singer is not only known for his acting but also guitar skills from One Direction. Could he get any hotter?

Not to forget his hair transition from wavy curls, to a smooth comb-over.

And lastly, his confidence and style has evolved – with him breaking stigmas in the fashion world.

Christopher Briney

The 24-year-old star has previously been called a young Leo, but told ET Canada that he "appreciates it but doesn't see it."

His co-stars from the romance series, The Summer I Turned Pretty, agreed that he also looks like the Titanic star.

In the show, Christopher was known for his bad boy persona who had turned "soft" for the main character Belly Conklin.
