In a recent Sirius XM interview with Andy Cohen, Call Me By Your Name stars Armie Hammer, Timothée Chalamet and director Luca Guadagnino discussed making the buzzed about Oscar contender—including wardrobe malfunctions.
The movie is set during the summer of 1983, so the costumes had to be in period, and luckily for us that includes plenty of short shorts.
During the conversation hard-hitting journalist Cohen picked on Hammer to ask the tough questions: “Were your balls coming out of the short shorts?”
“How did you know that?” Guadagnino asked surprised.
“There was a few times where they had to go back and digitally remove my balls from the movie,” Hammer revealed. “They were short shorts! What were you gonna do?!”
Guadagnino then joked that they digitally removed Hammer’s goods, but maybe the editors just hid them in other scenes throughout the movie.
“Like a Where’s Waldo,” he joked.
“Those are the Easter eggs,” interjected Chalamet.
Please God don't tell me they were replaced with Christopher Plummer's balls. https://t.co/QSQanblWLH

Obviously we are going to need the version with Hammer’s balls still intact to be released as an unrated version next year. Or is anyone down for another viewing of Call Me By Your Name, this time playing a game of “spot the scrotum?”
Even with some of Hammer’s flesh being removed, Call Me By Your Name is still a hit with audiences. The film had the highest per theater average of 2017 when it was released in New York and L.A. last week, and it won multiple trophies at the Gotham Award this week, including Best Feature and Breakthrough Actor.
Could Oscars glory be far behind?
