    "I Would've Been Another Woman That Armie Hammer Had Tried to Eat": Dakota Johnson Lights Up Sundance

    A Joke Ripe for Picking: Dakota and the Peach Role That Almost Was

    While singing praises for "Call Me By Your Name" director Luca Guadagnino, Johnson shared that she nearly snagged a role in the critically acclaimed film. “Sadly, I wasn’t in it. Luca had asked me to play the role of the peach, but our schedules conflicted,” she said, delivering her punchline with precision, "Thank God, though, because I would’ve been another woman that Armie Hammer had tried to eat." Oh, my indeed.

    The audacious quip references the 2021 allegations against Hammer involving his supposed cannibalism fetish and more severe accusations of rape and abuse. Johnson's witty remark didn't shy away from the topic, and the Sundance crowd was left in an amalgamation of shock and laughter.

    No Sour Taste: Guadagnino Still Considers Hammer for Sequel

    Despite the scandalous allegations, Guadagnino hasn't ruled out Hammer's involvement in a potential "Call Me By Your Name" sequel. As recently as November 2022, he told Variety that the rape allegations were not hindering his decision to include Hammer's character Oliver in the follow-up. "Because I truly love the actors I work with, so I want to repeat the joy of doing what we did together," he explained.

    The director's continued support of Hammer, coupled with Johnson's audacious joke, raises a fascinating reflection on the intersection between art, collaboration, and public opinion.

    It's a tale of art, jokes, loyalty, and perhaps a missed opportunity (or lucky escape) for Dakota Johnson and a peach. The conversations ignited at Sundance are bound to echo through Hollywood, reminding us all that the line between art and reality can sometimes be just as slippery as a peach pit.
