She introduced CMBYN director Luca Guadagnino with some humor.

Last night was the opening night of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and Call My By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino was honored with the International Icon Award.

At the inaugural “A Taste of Sundance” dinner, the Italian film director was introduced by his friend, Dakota Johnson, who made an incredible joke at his (and Armie Hammer's) expense.

In case you're not familiar with the situation, Hammer starred in Call My By Your Name alongside Timotheé Chalamet. In 2021, a woman came forward and accused him of sexual assault, abuse, and cannibalistic fetishes. Hammer has denied all of those allegations and despite it all, Guadagnino said he would invite Hammer back for the potential sequel to CMBYN. Late last year he coincidentally released Bones and All, another film starring Chalamet that just so happened to be a cannibalistic coming-of-age romance.

The jokes write themselves. Step forward, Dakota Johnson, who called back to CMBYN's infamous peach scene in her introduction.

“Luca had asked me to play the role of the peach, but our schedules conflicted," she said. "Thank God, because then I would have been another woman that Armie Hammer tried to eat.”

Oop.

“It’s been five years since [Call Me by Your Name] premiered here and Luca hasn’t stopped taking us to exciting places," she added. “Who knew cannibalism was so popular?"


The joke comes over a year after she defended Hammer, previously saying she was “sad for the loss of great artists” like Hammer, Johnny Depp, and Shia LaBeouf, all of whom are former film costars who face abuse allegations.

“I never experienced that firsthand from any of those people,” she said at the time. “I do believe that people can change. I want to believe in the power of a human being to change and evolve and get help and help other people.” Johnson concluded the thought with, "cancel culture is such a f*cking downer. I hate that term.”
