Timothée Chalamet who plays the fictional chocolatier “Willy Wonka” in the upcoming film “Wonka” has addressed sexual allegations against fellow actor Armie Hammer.
What Happened: Chalamet made his comments to Time Magazine in a profile piece on Monday. On the fellow “Call Me By Your Name” co-star, he said, “It’s a question worthy of a larger conversation, and I don’t want to give you a partial response.”
Hammer was accused of rape in March. The actor has denied the claims made by Effie, a person who runs an infamous account on the Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB) owned Instagram social networking service, reported Variety.
Call Me By Your Name was a breakthrough role for Chalamet who features in the upcoming musical Wonka — based on the “Charlie And The Chocolate Factory” by Roald Dahl — also starring Rowan Atkinson, Olivia Colman, and Sally Hawkins.
On Monday, Chalamet shared his Wonka look on Twitter.
