Timothée Chalamet knows he has the golden ticket.
Chalamet has seen the frenzy over his upcoming movie musical Wonka, and he is making it clear the film is not what the internet expects.”You know what’s really funny about that is it’s so misleading,” he told British Vogue for its October cover story. “This movie is so sincere, it’s so joyous.”
The Call Me By My Name actor revealed he has seven musical numbers during the musical.
“I hate to say it, but the dream as an artist is to throw whatever the f**k you want at the wall, you know?” Chalamet shared.
He added,”And I guess what I’m realizing is that one’s personal life, one’s adult life, can be quite boring and the artist’s life can still be extraordinary.”
When a first glimpse of him in crimson velvet and a top hat surfaced, the internet went wild, with one user tweeting, “In this one, Wonka f**ks.”
Other tweets echoed this sentiment with, “Timothée Chalamet as Willy Wonka if Willy Wonka made the Forbes 30 under 30, and, “Definitely different, but I respect a fine looking British look.”
