Timothee Chalamet, the dude with the hair that makes everyone else’s hair question its life choices, spilled the cocoa beans on stepping into Willy Wonka’s quirky shoes. E! News, the detectives of Hollywood gossip, just had to ask if Timothee hit up Johnny Depp, the OG Wonka, for some golden-ticket advice.
But hold your fizzy lifting drinks! Timothee’s response was more unpredictable than a chocolate factory on roller skates. Nope, he didn’t drop a Wonka emoji in Johnny’s DMs. In fact, he’s playing it cool, as cool as a snozzberry in a freezer.
He did, however, toss some verbal confetti at the 2005 version of the Wonka saga, the one where Tim Burton took the whimsy dial and cranked it to 11. Timothee basically said, “That movie hit theaters when I was knee-high to a gummy bear, and boy, was it audacious!”
As for the original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory from ’71, Timothee’s got a sweet spot for it. He confessed his love, and no, not the cheesy rom-com kind – we’re talking about a full-blown candy crush on the classic.
And let’s not forget the extra sprinkle on this chocolate-covered scoop: Timothee and Johnny Depp’s daughter, Lily-Rose, had a love affair as sweet as a sugar rush. But alas, like a bubblegum bubble, their romance popped in April 2020.
Timothee’s journey into Wonka-land is filled with boldness, nostalgic sweetness, and a sprinkle of Depp drama. Stay tuned for more updates, and remember, life is like a box of chocolates – you never know if you’ll get a golden ticket or just a nougat-filled disappointment!
