Armie Hammer’s balls were digitally removed from his new film Call Me By Your Name, a queer romance already breaking box office records and winning lots of awards.
Andy Cohen asked the 31-year-old actor on his radio show for Sirius about the size of his short shorts. The conversation soon led to the actor discussing his testicles.
Cohen asked, “Let’s talk about that. Were your balls coming out of the short shorts? Talk to me about the science of Armie’s short shorts.”
Armie Hammer replied, “There were a few times where they had to go back and digitally remove my balls.”
Watch how Armie Hammer’s balls came up to begin with here:
“My mom is going to love this conversation,” Hammer says. He soon after admits to Cohen that his mother may not see end up seeing the film because of her conservative and religious values.
Hammer probably hates that the subject of his balls came up at all. He recently told Vanity Fair he hated being asked by interviewers about a crotch grab that happens in the film.
Hammer seems to be a little sensitive when it comes to these topics, including his personal life. Buzzfeed recently published titled “Ten Long Years of Trying to Make Armie Hammer Happen.” The article exposes the actor’s long road to success, citing his wealth and privilege as the only reason for him getting so many chances. Armie Hammer’s paternal great-grandfather was oil tycoon and philanthropist Armand Hammer.
Hammer didn’t like the article very much. He reacted to the article with a tweet calling it “bitter AF,” according to multiple reports. He took his page down a day later, and he deleted his Twitter account after reading it.
Hammer made headlines in the past with his Twitter activity, including this past September when he called out James Woods, who had criticized Call Me by Your Name for its portrayal of a love affair between a 17-year-old boy and Hammer’s older character.
“Didn’t you date a 19 year old when you were 60…,” Hammer wrote at the time.
That tweet then prompted Amber Tamblyn to accuse Woods and a friend of attempting to pick up her and one of her friends when she was just 16.
