Timothee Chalamet Gets Praise From 'Beautiful Boy' Writer Nic Sheff

Timothee Chalamet steps out for a reception for his film Beautiful Boy!

The 22-year-old Call Me by Your Name actor snapped some pics at the event held at Metrograph on Monday (December 10) in New York City.

He was joined by Nic Sheff, who, along with father David, wrote the best-selling pair of memoirs on which the film is based.

Petra Collins and Nathan Mitchell were also there to show their support.

Beautiful Boy chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.

“So proud of @tchalamet for this nomination,” Nic wrote on Instagram, referring to Timothee‘s Golden Globe nomination. “As someone who lived it, I’ve honestly never seen a more true, authentic portrayal of what it’s like to struggle with this disease and be trapped in that relapse cycle. The amount of humanity and nuance he brought to this performance is just astonishing. And at 22 (21 when he shot this) it seems like something off a miracle to me.”

“But beyond that, I just couldn’t be prouder of who Timmy is as a person and what an incredible role model he is for young people — and all people, actually,” Nic added. “Can’t wait to see what he does next — and so grateful for all the hard work he’s put in to this film and to being of real service to our community. He’s seriously a good dude. We’re lucky to have him…”
