The cast and director of Call My by Your Name sat down for a candid interview with Andy Cohen on Sirius XM, and the conversation quickly turned awkward for Armie Hammer. Much to the actor’s embarrassment, Hammer had to wear tiny shorts in the coming-of-age film that at times revealed his genitals.

While his castmates Timothée Chalamet and Michael Stuhlbarg snickered, Hammer explained that the shorts were problematic for postproduction. “There was a few times where they had to go back and digitally remove my balls from the movie,” the actor said. “They were short shorts, what are you gonna do?”

Italian director Luca Guadagnino chimed in, saying, “It’s both things,” which Cohen assumed to mean Hammer had “big balls.” Seeing that he had embarrassed the actor, Guadagnino quickly backtracked. “No no, I’m not saying it. I had to remove digitally.”
