Armie Hammer discusses his nude scenes in Call Me By Your Name

For those of you who have read Andre Aciman’s 2007 novel Call Me By Your Name, you’ll know that it contains more than a few very intense gay sex scenes.

The film is set in 1980s Italy, as 17-year-old Elio (played by Timothée Chalamet) embarks on a summer affair with 24-year-old doctoral student Oliver (Armie Hammer).

However, for the movie adaptation the nudity has been – excuse the pun – stripped back, but we’re sure some of you will be glad to hear that it’s not completely absent from the film.

It’s something Armie recently opened up about in a new interview with IndieWire: “I have a daughter who will one day go to junior high and it somewhat terrifies me, the idea that people would tease her, like, ‘Here’s a picture of your dad’s dick.’

“We definitely shot more than you see.”

Fingers crossed for the director’s cut, guys…

Armie went on to discuss just how much time during filming he had to be in the buff in front of the cameras.

“We spent several days shooting this movie completely nude,” he said. “After the first take you really how silly all the nerves are that you’ve built up about this thing.”

Call Me By Your Name is gearing up to be one of the biggest LGBT+ films of the year, receiving critical acclaim across the board.

It will be in UK cinemas on 27 October, and in the US on 24 November.

Meanwhile, director Luca Guadagnino recently told Gay Times that a sequel to the movie has already been discussed.
