His joke, to say the least, caught the audience of the Film Festival of Sundance. dakota johnson was then on stage as part of the Institute’s Inaugural Opening Night: A Taste Of Sundance event, held on Thursday, January 19 in Park City, to present the International Icon Award to Luca Guadagnino.

The role of fishing

The opportunity for her to be ironic about Armie Hammerhero of his film Call Me By Your Name (2017), and scandal surrounding the actor’s sexual practices, accused of having cannibalistic inclinations. “It was here at Sundance, in 2017, that the public was able to discover Luca’s talent for storytelling, began Dakota Johnson during her speech. The quintessence of this is Call Me By Your Name. Unfortunately, I was not in this film.

Before continuing: “Luca had asked me to play the role of “fishing” (with which Timothée Chalamet masturbates in the film, and that Armie Hammer ends up eating, Editor’s note), but our schedules were incompatible. Thank God, because then I would have been one of the women Armie Hammer tried to eat.” The actress also joked about the fact that Luca Guadagnino subsequently turned Bones & All (2022), a film… about cannibalism.

“Who knew cannibalism was so popular?”

“It’s been five years since this film was screened here, and Luca hasn’t stopped surprising us,” she said. Who knew cannibalism was so popular? A speech acclaimed by the amazed crowd. Armie Hammer had indeed found himself in the eye of the storm when messages in which he exposed his cannibalistic fantasies to his former conquests had resurfaced on the web. Some of them accuse him of sexual assault. For his part, Luca Guadagnino has always denied that Bones & All was inspired by the story of Armie Hammer.
