Armie Hammer Discusses Marriage Equality, Banging Leo DiCaprio, And His Dominant Sex Life

armie hammer

Armie Hammer, whose stock has been rising since he scene-stealing performance in The Social Network, will next be seen in the upcoming film adaptation of The Lone Ranger. Hammer sat down with Playboy‘s Brantley Bardin  to play 20 questions. The topics covered everything from gay marriage and whether or not J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI director was gay to what goes on in the bedroom between him and his wife. Let’s just say, ride ‘em cowboy!

On banging Leo DiCaprio (well whether or not his character in J. Edgar did):

PLAYBOY: In 2011’s J. Edgar, directed by Clint Eastwood, you play Clyde Tolson, the associate director of the FBI, opposite Leonardo DiCaprio’s J. Edgar Hoover. No one knows for certain, but the two were so inseparable that many assumed they were lovers. The movie hints that the answer is yes. Where do you stand?

HAMMER: On set I’d always say, “Clint, what do you think? Did they ever bang?” And he’d go [in a heavy Eastwood whisper], “I don’t know. I don’t think so.” Then I’d ask Leo, “So what do you think? Did they ever do it?” And he’d go [takes a deep breath], “I don’t know…maybe.” But I was like, “Oh yeah, they did it for sure!” That was my standpoint, 100 percent. Like maybe one night they had a few too many martinis and all of a sudden [mimes passing out and waking up], “Oh! What did we just do? Oh my God, that felt so good! And so bad! I hate you, I love you, get away from me, get over here!” One of those things, you know?

On marriage equality:

PLAYBOY: Where do you stand on marriage equality?

HAMMER: I don’t think anybody should be telling anybody else who they should marry or not marry. That’s my official standpoint. This is social evolution, and the thing with evolution, whether you look at it in terms of a plant or a species or a mind-set, is it will always take time. But you just want to say, “The debate’s over, folks. Get used to it.”

On his healthy (and dominant) sex life:

PLAYBOY: You’re a guy who has gone on record saying he’s obsessed with tying knots and who often carries a rope and a knot guide with him wherever he goes. Now we’re hearing about a mask. Is there anything we need to know about your sex life?

HAMMER: Well, if you’re married to a feminist [journalist, restaurateur and actress Elizabeth Chambers] as I am, then it’s…. I don’t know how much we can put here without my parents being embarrassed, but I used to like to be a dominant lover. I liked the grabbing of the neck and the hair and all that. But then you get married and your sexual appetites change. And I mean that for the better—it’s not like I’m suffering in any way. But you can’t really pull your wife’s hair. It gets to a point where you say, “I respect you too much to do these things that I kind of want to do.”

      He and Elizabeth are just awesome. Love their bakery here in San Antonio. He actually serves cupcakes on his off time. I love his cupcakes! Total stud. Doesn’t take himself too seriously. Gorgeous inside, out. Ok, I’ll stop gushing.

      That had me in stitches.

      I love the fact that these burned out old Hollywood people STILL try to keep the closet going.

      Yeah Eastwood…of COURSE nobody was gay back then. (Eye Roll).

      As for Hammer, he always comes off very easy going and likable. And I remember reading that they kept wanting him to wax his chest for Mirror Mirror and he wouldn’t. Thank you for their being one or two actors out there who look like they’ve gone through puberty.

      Hey Armie,
      Feminism and kink/bdsm/bondage/dominance are not mutually exclusive, so long as consent is established.

      Needless to say, I’d be happy to let you dominate me!

      I must be the only one who felt the part about his sex life was a little bit tmi, didn’t need or want to know that
