Gene Wilder Says Willy Wonka Remake Was An Insult

Gene Wilder made a rare public appearance last week at the 92nd Street Y, telling an audience that he thought Tim Burton's remake of the classic "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" was an insult.

"I think it's an insult. It's probably Warner Bros.' insult," Wilder said of the 2005 "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" film. "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."

Wilder, who turned 80 on Tuesday, may or may not have added, "You get nothing. You lose. Good DAY sir."
