With leading twists and turns in Luca Guadagnino’s cannibal coming-of-age story “Bones and All” and Denis Villeneuve’s fantasy epic “Dune: Part Two,” Timothée Chalamet wears many different hats.

In December, he will add a more colorful top hat to Paul King’s movie musical ‘Wonka’, an original story about Roald Dahl’s sweet chocolatier. While details about the film are limited, paparazzi photos leaked from the set have sparked a social media frenzy as fans were quick to turn Chalamet’s Wonka into a meme. (In a viral tweetactor and comedian Ben Schwartz wrote: “In this one, Wonka fucks.”)

In an interview with British Vogue, Chalamet teased the upcoming movie, responding to the internet jokes. “You know what’s really funny is that it’s so misleading. The movie is so heartfelt, it’s so upbeat,” he said, adding that he has seven musical numbers.

Chalamet also noted that making the film helped him grow as an artist: “I hate to say it, but the dream as an artist is to throw anything you want against the wall, you know? And I think what I realize is that one’s personal life, one’s adult life, can be pretty boring, and the artist’s life can still be extraordinary.

Elsewhere in the interview, Chalamet revealed that Leonardo DiCaprio gave him memorable career advice: “No hard drugs and no superhero movies.” DiCaprio and Chalamet shared the screen in Adam McKay’s 2021 satirical comedy “Don’t Look Up,” which premiered in limited theaters and on Netflix last December, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
