Armie Hammer Doesn't Want 'Fifty Shades' Role, Except He Really Does
Armie Hammer might have claimed he doesn't want the role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, but he's certainly not acting like it. Despite dismissing rumors that he's being considered for the handsome S&M purveyor — telling Playboy he wouldn't act in "mommy porn" — Hammer has been quite vocal regarding his sex life during his most recent press tour. For Disney's Lone Ranger, a family film, mind you.
In the same Playboy interview, Hammer claimed he had changed his sex habits after marrying his wife of three years, Elizabeth Chambers. Prior to tying the knot, Hammer seemed quite willing to tie some knots, much like E.L. James' handsome hero. "I used to be like a dominant lover," the Lone Ranger actor told Playboy. "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.'"
Some might think, when in Rome — Hammer was talking to Playboy, after all — but the actor once again spoke out about his sex life... to women's magazine ELLE . "One chick tried to stab me when we were having sex," he said to the magazine. "She was like, 'True love leaves scars. You don't have any.' And then she tried to stab me with a butcher knife. Of course I promptly broke up with her... seven months later."
Violent sex? Seems a story fit for many a mommy. Next up: The actor talks to Rolling Stone about how deep Coldplay is. Either Hammer has a unique way of courting a film role, or Lone Ranger is not quite the kid's film we thought it was.
