Armie Hammer is a doll and a treasure, but a dancer he is not. But, it seems all the slack he’s been getting for his dorky dancing in Call Me By Your Name has some justification. He was dancing to no music!
In the behind the scenes clip shared on Instagram, Hammer shares that the cast were all dancing around to silence.
“For anyone who thought I was exaggerating how terrible filming dance scenes is,” Hammer captions the Instagram video, shot between takes while “trying to keep the non-existent vibe alive.”
“When you’re filming a dance scene, what they don’t tell you is that there’s no music. None,” Hammer told James Corden last year during an appearance on The Late Late Show. “Now that it’s totally silent, and everyone in the room is staring at you, dance.”
“I don’t really have a go-to sober dance move, so this was all things I had to learn on the fly,” he continued, adding that the final result was “a lot of flailing, a lot of jumping.”
Alright, we’ll give Armie Hammer a pass on this one.
