Luca, talking about Armie:
“And by the way, I don’t ask my cast: are you gay or not? Yes, Armie is married and he’s wonderful husband and father. But who knows where his desires lie? I’m not going to be the one to question him. Imagine if Rock Hudson was not cast as a love interest? I love those movies and I love and believe in the romance between him and his leading ladies.”
"顺便说一下，我不会问我的演员：你到底是不是gay？这种问题，没错， Armie是结婚了，他是个超棒的丈夫和父亲。但谁又知道他的欲望所向何处？我不会去做质问他的那个人。想象一下如果洛克·赫德森(上世纪50年代好莱坞著名直男形象的演员,本人实则是gay)没有在银幕上扮演情种? 我爱他的电影，我喜欢并且深信他和女主一起演绎的浪漫爱情。"Armie, talking about recording the CMBYN audiobook‘And he also taped the Call Me by Your Name audiobook, an experience that “felt like I got to go back to Crema,” Hammer said. “We read it for 20-something hours, but it was just the best 20-something hours of the last couple months, apart from spending time with my family and kids.”
However, the more you listen as Hammer wistfully describes his time on Call Me by Your Name —a transformative experience he will spend the rest of his life attempting to recapture — the more you realize it’s exactly how one might reminisce about a lover long gone. Hammer may play Oliver onscreen, but at heart, he is a secret Elio. “That’s exactly what it feels like!” he admitted. “And I’m still in love.”
And, last but not least, this:
Armie Hammer: If you believe it or not I had my first sex scene in Call Me By Your Name’!
Luca Guadagnino: Wait, you never did this before?
Armie Hammer: No! But you and the crew dealt with it like it would be nothing special, just another scene. And as soon as it is “Cut!” you look up and come out of the fog: there’s the boom operator, there’s the camera man and they just do their job. I wish I could fill this feeling in bottles, the feelings before and after the scene. I would need weeks to explain the difference.
