Armie Hammer stars in The Lone Ranger opposite Johnny Depp, a blockbuster that opens next week.
But in the latest issue of Elle (on newsstands tomorrow), the actor doesn't talk much about his famous costar, focusing instead on sex with his wife.
"I used to like to be a dominant lover," Hammer says, explaining how things have changed with wife Elizabeth Chambers. "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."
Well, that's good to know.
How is love-making different with Chambers?
"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 said.
"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."
And a safer style, as well. At least compared to one ex-girlfriend. Do tell, Armie:
“One chick tried to stab me when we were having sex. I should so not be telling this story. 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."
Aside from these personal anecdotes, Hammer also touched on a professional rumor - that also happens to involve sex.
He was never officially offered the role of Christian in Fifty Shades of Grey, but he made it clear he'd never consider it anyway.
"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."
It's true. We all now know what does do it for Armie Hammer.
