Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet, the stars of the gay drama "Call Me By Your Name," stopped by "The Ellen Show" where they discussed their chemistry and their intense make out sessions.

They said they had a "hilarious" ice breaking rehearsal during the beginning of filming the movie where they ended up kissing for longer than they expected. Chalamet and Hammer explain out director Luca Guadagnino told them to flip to page 71 in their script - a scene where the characters make out in the grass. The actors believed it was a random page but it was clear Guadagnino knew what he was doing.

"That's why we're here! Let's do this," the men told Ellen.

After making out for a bit, Guadagnino stops the men.

"'Stop...I want you two to make out like you wanna make out with each other - passionately,'" Hammer said the filmmaker told them. "Good direction! That's exactly what we should be doing let's do it."

"We're making out, and we're making out, and we're making out, and no one's saying stop," Hammer adds. "And all of a sudden, we both kind of stop and look, and Luca had just walked away and left us right there, rolling around in the grass."

"That was our only rehearsal," he said. "It was a bit of an icebreaker."
