The pair had apparently met back in the day when Chalamet was feeling particularly low about the trajectory of his acting career, when Cudi gave him some life-changing advice. But this latest encounter has supporters of both entertainers fawning over how sweet the significance of the meeting was. Fellow party attendees captured the moment when the Call Me By Your Name star embraced with his musical icon.
