Timothée Chalamet thinks the sexiest British accent is… Hull?

Clementine Hall Clementine Hall - 9th December 2023

Hollywood A-lister Timothée Chalamet has revealed the British accents he finds sexiest, and the results are unexpected.

The 27-year-old star of Wonka said that a Hull accent is up there as one of his favourites, along with Italian and French.

How does Timothée Chalamet even know about Hull’s existence, never mind know what the accent sounds like?

The star, who rose to astronomical fame back in 2017 with his portrayal of Elio in Call Me By Your Name, and has since starred in blockbusters such as Dune and Little Woman, revealed his favourite access on the current Wonka press tour, The Hoot reports.

Chalamet appeared on LadBible TV talking to Keegan-Michael Key, where they discuss the internet’s biggest debates.


In a segment where they debate the British accent, Chalamet goes on to reveal his top three British accents… and the answers are not what you would expect.

Firstly he admits his favourite is the Hull accent, he says: “I like the Hull accent. Hull is sexy”.


We’ve never thought of the Hull accent as particularly sexy before, but we will absolutely take it.

He then goes onto say: “I like Hull, Essex is my top three, and I like a middle-aged Yorkshire accent.”

We’re not sure the difference between a Yorkshire and a middle-aged Yorkshire accent, but what Timothée wants then Timothée will get.


In the comments, one person said: “I’m from Hull and nobody in Hull likes the Hull accent lol.”

Another joked: “suddenly i have the hull accent.”

And someone else wrote: “good day to have a hull accent.”

So thank you Timmy, we’d have to say that we wholeheartedly agree and that our accent is in fact, the sexiest of them all.

Next time we’d like to see you attempt a Yorkshire accent on the big screen, because we’re sure you’d absolutely smash it.
