A pair of itty bitty short shorts Armie Hammer wears in “Call Me by Your Name” exposed some of the actor’s private parts, which then had to be digitally removed.
“There was a few times where they had to go back and digitally remove my balls from the movie,” the actor said during an interview with Andy Cohen at the SiriusXM Studios on Monday, adding, “They were short shorts — what are you gonna do?”
“Short shorts and big balls is what you’re saying? Wow,” Cohen said.
“My mom’s going to love listening to this interview,” Hammer responded.
The rest of the cast, which includes Timothée Chalamet and Michael Stuhlbarg, then joked that Hammer’s testicles were digitally removed and put into other parts of the film, kind of like “Where’s Waldo?”
“If you look carefully at all the trees, it’s not all peaches,” Hammer said with a laugh.
“Call Me by Your Name,” directed by Luca Guadagnino, stars Chalamet as a teenage Italian-American who falls in love with his father’s student (Hammer) during the summer of 1983. Based on the novel by Andre Aciman, the screenplay was adapted by James Ivory. The film has received critical acclaim with a 98 percent Rotten Tomatoes score.
