Armie Hammer Talks ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’, Marriage Equality, ‘The Lone Ranger’ & More With ‘Playboy’

Armie Hammer
10 reasons why we think he's a dreamboat.
Before we start talking about Armie Hammer’s awesome interview with Playboy, can we take a moment and appreciate how sexy he is?

Have we done that? Good. Now, to his interview. I’ve gotta say, Playboy interviews are always really amazing as you always get the truth from people. And we learned quite a bit about Armie in this one. Like did you know he has no plans to do Fifty Shades Of Grey?

“No one actually offered me the movie, but while I was working on Lone Ranger my agent brought it up, and I said ‘Nope.’ I mean, come on—it’s just mommy porn. I’m not going to sit on top of the laundry machine in spin cycle reading about putting a ball gag in someone’s mouth. That doesn’t do it for me.” 

But he was quite the entrepreneur in middle school when it came to all this sexual. “I almost got kicked out of eighth grade for selling Playboy. Me and this guy had a ring where we’d bring magazines packaged with a bottle of lotion to school—brilliant business plan, wasn’t it?—and sell them to the kids for $20.” And the teachers never caught him!

So, did you guy know Armie got to hang out with actual cowboys while film The Lone Ranger? “It’s funny: When we were eating at a burger joint with the cowboys in Lone Ranger, I point-blank asked, “Did you ever eat a horse?” And every one of them said, ‘Oh hell yeah, man—that’s good eatin’!'” Cowboys and death defying stunts? Good times.

And finally, Armie is all for marriage equality. “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.”
