Call Me By Your Name has been in theaters for less than a week, and already it's managed to make Armie Hammer and his absurdly short shorts iconic among audiences. But that didn't come without any slips.
In a recent interview with Andy Cohen on Sirius XM Radio Hammer explained how the length of his shorts turned out to be a real problem, something even his Mom would cringe at. They were so teeny weeny, his balls were apparently popping out of them repeatedly during filming.
Hammer was joined by his co-stars Timothée Chalamet and Michael Stuhlbarg, and director Luca Guadagnino, to talk about the film. Aside from talking about the movie's more serious homosexual love story, the crew spent a solid minute going over the intricacies of Hammer's wardrobe malfunction.
"There was a few times where they had to go back and digitally remove my balls from the movie. They were short shorts. What’re you gonna do?"
The film's director Guadagnino said Hammer's shorts weren't completely to blame, he told Cohen, "it's both things."
"Short shorts and big balls is what you’re saying."
Call Me By Your Name is now in theaters!
