In news that will hit you harder than finding out that Call Me By Your Name author Andre Aciman is, in fact, straight, it turns out that Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet, the two lead characters who do, in fact, call each other by their own names, are straight.
OK, OK, you knew that. But the two reminded us just how straight they are on an Ellen appearance where Chalamet and Hammer recounted their very first make-out encounter. It turns out director Luca Guadagnino had the two break the ice by making out on the grass and walking away, leaving the two to ravish each other.
After yukking it up with Ellen DeGeneres over their grassy spit swap, Chalamet commented on dealing with razor burn while kissing Hammer.
“Armie didn’t have to deal with it becuase I am on the cusp of manhood, I don’t really have to shave ever,” Chalamet said. “There’s a signifcant beard goign on there. That’s a real thing people deal with.”
DeGeneres responded, “I don’t anymore, but I did.”
God bless you, DeGeneres Queen!
On another note, Hammer’s wife loved the film, but Chalamet’s grandmother hasn’t seen it yet.
