Dakota Johnson jokes that Armie Hammer would have tried to ‘eat her’

PARK CITY, Utah – Dakota Johnson joked that Armie Hammer would have had a chance to “eat” her if she had starred in “Call Me by Your Name.”

While praising the film’s director, Luca Guadagnino, at Opening Night: A Taste of Sundance presented by IMDbPro Thursday, the “Lost Daughter” actress joked that she was almost cast as the film’s iconic peach.

“Unfortunately I was not there [‘CMBYN’]. Luca had asked me to play the part of the peach, but our agendas were conflicting.

“Thank God, because I would have been another woman trying to eat Armie Hammer.”

At first, the crack got some laughs and giggles, but after an awkward pause, Johnson received rapturous applause and cheers.

“Who knew cannibalism was so popular?” Johnson, 33, added, referring to Guadagnino’s most recent project, “Bones and All.”

Guadagnino, 51, was honored with the Sundance Institute International Icon Award.

Hammer, 36, has been living in relative isolation since he was accused of rape by a woman named Effie and sexual misconduct by exes Courtney Vucekovich and Paige Lorenze.

Vucekovich, the founder of glamor app Flashd, told Page Six in January 2021 that the disgraced “Social Network” star would express his desire to “barbecue and eat” her during their courtship.

“He told me he wanted to break my rib and barbecue and eat it,” she recalls.

“‘F–k that was weird,’ but you never think about it again,” Vucekovich said when he overlooked the strange behavior at the time. “He says, ‘I want to take a bite out of you.’ If I had a little cut on my hand he would want to suck or lick it which is about as weird as we got.

Meanwhile, 24-year-old Lorenze claimed to Page Six that Hammer used a knife to cut the letter “A” near her vagina.

“I kind of leaned back and let it happen,” she told us at the time. “I wasn’t sure what to do or say. … As sad as that is, I wanted him to like me and feel like I couldn’t do what he wanted.

Hammer, through statements from his attorney, has strongly denied that he did anything wrong.

“From day one, Mr. Hammer has maintained that all his interactions with [Effie] — and every other sexual partner of his for that matter — have been completely consensual, discussed and agreed in advance, and mutually participatory,” the statement reads.

“[Effie’s] attention-seeking and ill-advised legal action will only make it more difficult for real victims of sexual assault to get the justice they deserve.”

The ‘Death on the Nile’ actor is still under investigation by the LAPD.
