In a new interview with Playboy, actor Armie Hammer opens up about his sex life with wife Elizabeth Chambers and also addresses rumors that he will play the lead in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.
In his upcoming action western The Lone Ranger, Hammer's character "John Reid/The Lone Ranger" wears a Zorro-esque mask, which he says he kept and his wife loves. That led the interview to venture into Hammer's sex life, a topic on which he was very open.
"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," the 26-year-old actor tells the magazine.
However, after marrying his journalist and actress wife in 2010, Hammer says his practices in the bedroom changed.
"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.'"
Hammer, whose acting career surged after playing twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss in the 2010 drama The Social Network—which landed him roles in J. Edgar, Mirror Mirror, and now The Lone Ranger—continues to candidly divulge about his sex life in the interview.
"The two us will literally break out laughing in the middle of it, finish up and be like, 'Well, that was oddly fun!' So it becomes a new kind of thing that's less about 'I want to dominate you' and more about both of us having a really good time. It's just a different style."
In his all-inclusive interview, in which he pontificates on everything from his stance on marriage equality to his "abusive" obsession with McDonald's cuisine, Hammer also sets straight the rumors on his suspected role in the big-screen adaptation of 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," he said. "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."
