Armie Hammer Talks Leonardo DiCaprio 'J. Edgar' Kiss
Since he pulled double duty in "The Social Network" -- and earned himself a breakout -- Armie Hammer's career has been on fire. And first up for his post-Facebook flick: heating up the screen with Leonardo DiCaprio.
Hammer plays Clyde Tolson, Associate FBI Director under longtime chief J. Edgar Hoover (played by DiCaprio) in Clint Eastwood star-studded biopic, "J. Edgar." Tolson is rumored to have done far more than assist Hoover in his vast empire of secret gathering and celebrity monitoring, though; it's long been rumored that the two lawmen were secret gay lovers, a topic Eastwood's biopic is embracing wholeheartedly.
As such, Hammer and DiCaprio will share "lots of kissing scenes," as Hammer told E! Online in February.
Yesterday, speaking to Entertainment Tonight Canada, Hammer revealed that the scenes have been completed and gave a recap of the kissing.
"It wasn't that 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," he said (via Just Jared). "You always have a special relationship with someone when you finish a movie with them, but...he's got a bunch of stuff he is doing after that, I've got a bunch of stuff I'm doing....we didn't start a book club together or anything."
As for that stuff he's doing, it includes two major roles he just grabbed. He'll play the Prince (where he'll be kissing Lilly Collins) in "The Brothers Grimm: Snow White" and will ride as The Lone Ranger, alongside Johnny Depp's Tonto.
