Timothée Chalamet, who plays Charlie in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, is the first man to be on the cover of British Vogue in its 106-year history.
The magazine says that the 26-year-old star has made a mark on his generation that is hard to forget. But if you ask the actor himself, he will say that he never thought his life would be so important at such a young age.
“I had a crazy idea when I was a young teen that I would be an actor by the time I was a late teen,” he told the magazine. When I was in my late teens and working on Homeland and doing theatre in New York, I felt like I had changed my goal to something more realistic, which was to work in theatre and hopefully make enough money doing a TV show or something else I could live on. Then, it seemed like every dream had come true, one after another. Then life moves at 6,000,000 miles per hour. ”
There are, of course, some things to learn. Chalamet says that the pandemic gave him a unique chance to learn and grow.

He said, “When COVID hit, I had to take a step back.” Everyone has to deal with things like taxes, the dentist, and being a real adult. Do you know what I mean? I should have tried to get my adult feet on the ground a little bit sooner. ”
I had to be honest with myself and say, “You know, where I am in life is because I threw everything I had at it when I was young, and by some miracle, it worked.” “But then to switch to thinking like an adult.”
That doesn’t mean that the actor who played Willy Wonka hasn’t always felt like an old soul. He has, no doubt.
The perspective that feels like an “old man
“The perspective that feels like “old man”, I feel like I was born with it,” he said, explaining it later as “the empath thing, the thinking for everyone in the room, the sort of misplaced idea, this sort of illusion of control based on trying to feel for everyone.”
In a follow-up video interview with British Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, Chalamet talks about his career in a straightforward way. He says he chooses roles that speak to him, no matter how many lines they have.
“At the beginning of my career, I just wanted to work on great projects, no matter how small my part was,” he said. “And it meant working with a great director a lot of the time. I guess I’m trying to go in a direction that isn’t obvious.
The humble actor couldn’t seem to wrap his mind around how he fits into the celebrity zeitgeist, which Enninful describes as “a moment in history, a moment in time.”
