Armie Hammer has been caught thirsting over Call Me By Your Name co-star Timothée Chamalet’s latest Instagram selfie.
The stars of the hit gay romance, who are obviously both straight because it’s Hollywood, struck up a close relationship between filming love scenes that has endured to this day.
Case in point: Hammer getting horny on main over a trademark moody Chamalet selfie Tuesday (October 13).
Chamalet, 24, sent pulses racing when he uploaded the sombre snap of himself wearing a cap and a patterned face mask, looking off into the distance.
Hammer, 34, pretty much said what we were all thinking when he commented: “OoOOOoOoooo KING S**T!!,” with a string of aubergine, sweat, heart and fire emojis.
The four emojis have all been identified by researchers as helping to secure dates when used flirtatiously. Because science.
Nearly 190,000 Instagram users liked Hammer’s comment, and the responses were everything you would expect, to be honest.
A Chamalet fan-page wrote: “I didn’t sleep last night just because for thiiiiiis🔥🔥”.
“Call Me By Your Name 2 right there,” a user said.
“Give it up, the 🍑 always wins,” one user, clearly a bottoms rights activist, wrote.
“No more Big D**k Energy. Only Armie Hammer Divorce Energy,” another commented.
Hammer announced his divorce from wife Elizabeth Chambers in July.
Previously the actor has boasted that he was a “dominant lover” before his marriage, telling Playboy: “I liked the grabbing of the neck and the hair and all that. But then you get married and your sexual appetites change.”
Armie Hammer and Timothée Chamalet’s to reunite in Call Me By Your Name 2.
The exchange comes ahead of the pair’s plans to reprise their roles in the sequel to Luca Guadagnino’s film.
In the first Call Me By Your Name, Chamalet played the coltish 17-year-old Elio Perlman who falls for Oliver (Hammer), a square-jawed American in his 20s who came to stay with Elio and his family in their Italian villa.
A sequel has been confirmed with both actors on board. Guadagnino has said it will take place “five or six years afterwards” and will tackle the AIDS crisis, as well as events such as the Gulf War and the rise of Silvio Berlusconi.
This means the film will divert from Find Me, the sequel to Call Me by Your Name published by author André Aciman in 2019.
“I haven’t even read the book. I know Luca hasn’t got a full script yet, although he knows what he wants to do with the story, so I don’t know how similar or dissimilar it will be to Find Me the novel.”
He added: “I know if we end up doing it, it’s more important for me to focus on Luca’s vision than to focus on Find Me.
Hammer said fan excitement for a sequel is “a double-edged sword”.
“The more excited they get, the bigger chances are of them watching and going, ‘This sucks!’ But pressure makes diamonds, so here’s to more pressure!”
