Armie Hammer Compares His Leonardo DiCaprio Kiss to -- What Else? -- Firearms
One biopic I actually care about is J. Edgar. That's an intriguing, murky story. Just ask Tim Gunn, who definitely saw the FBI director dressed up as Vivian Vance one time. As for the film, you've got your Clint Eastwood direction, your Dustin Lance Black script, your Leo DiCaprio starring role, and now you have Armie Hammer, who is waxing poetic about sharing a kiss with DiCaprio in the movie. (He plays closeted homosexual Hoover's friend Clyde Tolson.) What was the kiss like? Guns, y'see!
"It's the same kind of thing as if you walk onto a set and they hand you a machine gun and [say], 'Shoot this like you know what you're doing' -- you can't grab that thing and go, 'uh...' -- you kind of have to go, 'Okay, I know what I'm doing,' and you've just got to go for it," Hammer told Just Jared. "It wasn't weird -- I have never kissed a guy -- it's not something I'm going to do in my private life, but at the end of it I was, like, man, there is a lot of weird hype."
You are my most precious Movieline reader if you read that and made a Brokeback Mountain "gun's goin' off" at any point during that paragraph. Anyway, now that I've made it, we can share it together. Gun's goin' off!
