There are a few actors that come to mind when one thinks of director Luca Guadagnino: Dakota Johnson, who starred in his films bigger splash And suspense; Michael Stuhlbarg, who appeared on Call me by your name And bones and all; Timothee Chalamet, who also stars bones And CMBYN. And then there’s Armie Hammer, who many might want to forget, if only Dakota Johnson would allow us.
During the opening night event at Sundance Film Festival This honor Ryan CooglerAnd Nikiato JossoAnd W Kamau Belland Guadagnino, Johnson presented the director with an International Icon Award. “She was Here at Sundance In 2017, audiences witnessed a film that uniquely featured Luca’s iconic approach to storytelling. Vision and style Call me by your nameJohnson for the Crowd (Per variety), and joked, “Unfortunately, I wasn’t into it. It was a pity. Luca asked me to play Peaches but our schedules conflicted.”
(For starters, Chalamet’s character Elio uses a peach to masturbate in the movie, and soon after Hammer’s character Oliver goes to eat it –Although he doesn’t in the end, unlike Oliver in the novel.)
Johnson continued sarcastically, “Thank God, because then I would have been another woman that Armie Hammer tried to eat.” After some laughs and cheers from the audience, she continued, “It’s been five years since the movie came out here and Luca hasn’t stopped taking us to exciting places. Who knows.” Cannibalism was very common? “
In 2021, Hammer was accused of various abuses, though perhaps the most eyebrow-raising allegation was his supposed cannibal fantasies. That same year, Johnson was asked about Hammer (with whom she appeared in The Social Network) as well as other male co-stars like Johnny Depp and Shia LaBeouf who had been accused of abuse during a Hollywood Reporter interview. She claimed that she had no negative experiences with the cast, and called the cancellation culture “frustrating”.
“I had a great time working with them; I feel sad for the loss of great artists,” she told the outlet. “I feel sad for people who needed help and may not have gotten it in time. I feel sad for anyone who has been hurt or harmed. It’s really sad. I believe people can change. I want to believe in human ability to change, evolve, get help and help others. I think there is definitely a significant overcorrection going on.” Some stinging remarks in an irrelevant letter should not be taken into consideration This overcorrection.
