Gene Wilder apparently has some pretty strong feelings about Tim Burton's remake of Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, starring Johnny Depp as ol' Willy boy.
The actor, best known for his role as THE candyman in the 1971 Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory film, came clean in an interview Thursday night, speaking up about Tim's take on the Roald Dahl classic.
"I think it's an insult.. It's probably Warner Bros.' insult."
He then added:
"Johnny Depp, I think, is a good actor, but I don't care for that director. He's a talented man, but I don't care for him doing stuff like he did."
Harsh!! But at least he's a fan of Johnny, as are we! ;)
Perezcious readers, which Wonka film do U like best?!
