'Call Me By Your Name' Star Armie Hammer Defends His Role on Twitter - See the Tweets!

Call Me By Your Name has already generated some backlash for the age difference between the lead roles in the film, and Armie Hammer is hitting back.

The movie, an adaptation of a 2007 novel by André Aciman, is about the relationship between a 17-year-old American-Italian boy Elio (Timothee Chalamet) and a 24-year-old American student Oliver (Hammer) who comes to live at Elio’s family’s home for the summer.

“Wow, did you act in a film about pedophilia? Are you a pedophile? Do you promote such depravity? I was once a fan. Blech!!” a user tweeted at Armie.

“You do know that you live in a state where the age of consent is 16, right….? Ok. Now shut up,” the 31-year-old actor wrote back on Saturday (October 7).

“And thank you for your service to our country,” Armie added.

    Jeez Armie, you don’t have to tell the guy to shut up. Show more respect while replying to people on social media.

  • Sarahh182

    it’s very bothersome people like this soldier don’t get that their bigotry is what forces gay teens to to stay hidden and and take dangerous risks just to meet someone. str8 kids have luxury of dating out in the open with people their age but LGBTQ+ kids can’t find people their age because those potential young people have to stay so hidden from bigots. Armie’s response was the best he can do …. you can’t argue with someone who is wrong but has been brainwashed to believe his belief is absolute.

  • Alex Harbie

    Nope he deserved it. You dish it out, you get it right back. Stop pretending to be a moral purist.

    The guy didn’t show any respect to Armie, did he?

  • Gina

    Let’s be honest, the guy really had a problem with the gay aspect of the movie, not the age difference. At least own your bigotry.

  • Shell

    The guy called him a paedo just because of a film role. He’s lucky he wasn’t more harsh to him.

  • Ause Ekel

    Just because someone was rude to you, you don’t have to do the same. That’s called maturity. Armie is 31 years old, not 20.

  • Ause Ekel

    No but that doesn’t justify Armie’s words either. You can be classy while teaching someone a lesson.

  • Ause Ekel

    No, that’s wrong. An agressive behavior doesn’t justify an agressive response.

  • Gina

    Respect goes both ways. If you show none, you get none in return. Armie was justified. Stop holding him to a different standard.

  • Ause Ekel

    I’m not holding him to a different standard. When you are extremely rude to someone who does the same to you, you go their mediocre level. Show maturity and teach them a lesson in another way.

  • Gina

    Nice words or mean ones weren’t gonna change that man’s mind anyways. It’s a moot point.

  • Ause Ekel

    True. I just don’t think you have to go that low to teach a disgusting person a lesson. I rather do that in a classy way. That’s how I deal with things and I feel much better in the end. If you wanna use the same kind of words it’s your call, I personally don’t like it.

  • Shell

    In an ideal world maybe but this isn’t anywhere near that. What he accused him of being is one of the worst things you can say to someone and I don’t know many who would be calm over their answer. It’s easy to say we should take the high road but when it happens, that”s not the first thing that comes to mind.

  • Alex Harbie

    No your wrong. Stop defending a man qho is indefensible. Compared to what he could have said, it was a tempered response. Do everyone a favor, don’t pretend to be some holier than thou person. If that’s an aggressive response to you, then pray that the world doesn’t chew you up and spit you out. Change your avatar, that movie betrays your very being. Try Sixteen Candles instead, a soft movie for soft people.

  • Alex Harbie

    Of course you are, your just pretending not to. Yeah, your the reason the world looks the way it does. Too soft.

  • Ause Ekel

    Better being soft and teach people a lesson with class than using the same agressivity. Sorry.

  • Ause Ekel

    I don’t agree, sorry if that bothers you. I don’t use agressivity when someone is stupid. That’s not how we teach people a lesson in my view. Deal with it and respect my way of dealing with things.

  • Ause Ekel

    I know what you mean but I don’t support this kind of behavior toward disgusting people. He could have sent the same message using other words. That’s how I see things anyway, you have the right to think differently, that’s more than fine.

  • Alex Harbie

    Sure. You keep thinking that. I’m sure it will help you. You don’t understand what aggressive means. Stop lying to yourself.

  • Ause Ekel

    Okay

  • Alex Harbie

    Nah your defending a vile human being, i see your true colors now. You must have a hardon for scumbags. But hey, maybe guys like that are your cup of tea. I’m not going to respect you, you deserve none, and you have earned none.

    Your view is dangerous, good people are like Armie are put down, but you defend a man who sexually harasses women, simply because it’s wrong to call people out? Keep responding and I’ll keep calling out your BS.

  • Alex Harbie

    Not okay.

  • Ause Ekel

    Okay.

  • Ause Ekel

    What? What the hell are you talking about? Disgusting people like that guy or Harvey Weinstein deserve to be put down but not in the same level they did it. There are other ways to deal with assholes and following their behavior isn’t how I handle these situations. I don’t like how Armie Hammer replied to that man but that doesn’t mean I’m defending that asshole. And NO, I’m not saying Armie is a bad person either.

    Do NOT say anything about me. You don’t know me so shut up.

  • Alex Harbie

    Ha! Reactionary, i knew it, the do gooder routine never holds up. You don’t need to say it, your implying it. Sure your defending him, you never disavowed his behavior til now. You don’t know Armie, so why are you making judgement calls. See, if it’s that easy to push your buttons, then what good is your do gooder routine, when telling others to be civil in how they respond.

  • Ause Ekel

    Wow, super reactionary! Okay then Alex Harbie.

  • Alex Harbie

    Yeah, reactionary again. Keep going, I love debating someone who’s blind to the outside world.

  • Ause Ekel

    Me too :)

  • Alex Harbie

    Sarcasm. I didn’t you beong the coward you are by defending people who rape and sexually harass women, had it in you to say something that comes from a hateful place. Now your learning, see what happens when you wake up to reality.

  • Ause Ekel

    I’m not defending anyone who does that. I’m not defending what Armie WROTE. It’s like talking to a door in here. Bye.

  • Alex Harbie

    Go away. I’ve dealt with you multiple times, you defended James Woods, and you hated on Armie for responding back in the most benign way possible. You are scum. Is Harvey Weinstein next? How about Roman Polanski, or Donald Trump?

  • Ause Ekel

    Okay door, keep talking.

  • Alex Harbie

    Ha! I thought you always took the high road, now your insulting someone? Your not that intelligent, i never said anything about Armie. Disappointed, I was rebutting a person who can’t even understand basic reading comprehension, it looks like you just took it upon yourself to write something for the sake of it. Go away amateur, your not worth the time.

  • Ause Ekel

    Okay door.

  • Alex Harbie

    Okay, coward.

  • Ause Ekel

    Okay “I don’t know how to read, I’m a door”.

  • Alex Harbie

    Ok, I don’t know how to read, I’m a raging coward who loves old rapists. :)

  • Ause Ekel

    Wow, keep proving how smart you are Mr. Door. Anyone who can read, unlike you, can see that I hate Harvey and anyone who does evil but just because I didn’t like what Hammer said to that asshole on Twitter I became a bad person. Are you a gossip writer or something? You clearly loves to twist people’s words :)

  • Alex Harbie

    Aw. Someone is defensive because it’s true, you support gerontophilic rapists. I read that quite clearly. Yes you are an evil scumbag, and it shows, keep going Mr. Door. By the way that last sentence is “love” not loves, rape apologist.

  • Ause Ekel

    Okay talk alone.

  • Alex Harbie

    Lol says the person who keeps replying. Bye Mr. Door, have fun with the rapists.

  • Alex Harbie

    Okay, guy who keeps replying, take your own advice for once you rape apologist.
