Armie Hammer revealed he’s been getting an unusual request from “Call Me By Your Name” fans.

The actor appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and said he can usually spot the “Call Me By Your Name” fans who wait at the stage door for his Broadway play “Straight White Men.”

“The people who come, you can usually spot them right away,” Hammer says “And the biggest, dead giveaway is they will normally hand me a peach. I get handed at least a peach or two almost every stage door.”

“The first time someone handed me a peach I go, ‘Oh, thanks.’ And they go, ‘No, that’s not for you, will you sign it for me?’ ” he continued.“They’re going to put that peach on a shelf because it has my signature and in 10 days, it’s going to putrefy and their entire place is going to be full of fruit flies.”

The peach has become an iconic symbol for the film which featured a sexual scene with the fruit.

Hammer also shared that he and his “Call Me By Your Name” co-star Timothée Chalamet and director Luca Guadagnino still talk frequently.
