At the international premiere of ‘Wonka’, which took place at the Royal Festival Hall in London, England, ET had the opportunity to speak with the star.

As part of the Wonka promotional tour, Timothée Chalamet has been wearing a number of different clothes that are considered to be on the cutting edge of fashion. His purple velvet suit that he wore for the global premiere makes no exception!

The actor, who is 27 years old and appears in the new remake of the film based on Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, looked dashing in the tailored suit from Tom Ford’s Spring 2024 collection. He wore the suit without an undershirt, which was a very bold move.

The bare-chested appearance was complemented with a massive, short-length Cartier necklace made of white gold that had onyx, opals, tourmalines, and emerald stones. Chalamet wore the necklace under his shirt.

The interview took place on the red carpet at the Royal Festival Hall in London, England, and was conducted by ET’s Cassie DiLaura. During the conversation, Chalamet said that his attire was more style-oriented than functional, given the frigid temperature of forty degrees.

Chalamet stated, “I don’t know what the hell I was thinking,” before agreeing with the statement, “Aww man, yeah, do it for the fashion!”

According to Chalamet, he felt the burden of stepping into a character who is so revered by people all over the globe while he was playing the part of Willy Wonka in the film Harry Potter and the Chocolate Factory.

Chalamet responded to a question about how he felt when he put on the famous top hat and purple coat of Wily Wonka for the first time by saying, “My initial reaction was ‘Oh god, I hope I get this right because now it’s really happening, and this is a character that is beloved.'”

Wonka is a prequel adaption of Roald Dahl’s most beloved book, which was published in 1964 and has been adapted for the big screen twice previously. It was Gene Wilder who performed the role of the famed chocolatier in 1971, and Johnny Depp who portrayed the role in 2005.

Chalamet pointed out that “people are very protective over films or characters they love, so you don’t wanna be blasphemous, but you know, I was in the best hands with Paul King, our director.”

While Chalamet was anticipating the praises that fans and critics alike would give to Wonka, he said, “We’ll see what people say, but I’m very proud of it.”

In addition to Chalamet, the cast of Wonka includes Hugh Grant, who plays an Oompa-Loompa, Olivia Colman, who plays Mrs. Scrubbit, Sally Hawkins, who plays Willy’s mother, Rowan Atkinson, who plays Father Julius, and Keegan-Michael Key, who plays the Chief of Police.
