Armie Hammer just made our holidays a lot happier.

Not only did the Social Network hottie confirm he's thisclose to playing Leonardo DiCaprio's love interest the biopic J. Edgar...

Hammer told us the rumor that he and the Inception star will be lip-locking in the flick is...true!

"Yeah, jealous?" Hammer said last night at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and In Style Miss Golden Globes Party in West Hollywood.

In the Clint Eastwood-directed film, Hammer is set to play Clyde Tolson, J. Edgar Hoover's protégé and rumored lover.

So did the 24-year-old actor ever think he'd get the chance to smooch a star like Leo?

"No, but I always hoped!" he laughed. "Somewhere, deep down inside it was something I always hoped for."

Hammer tells us wife Elizabeth Chambers isn't the least bit jealous of their onscreen smoochin'. "She's just happy I'm not kissing another woman!" he said.

Joking aside, Hammer says he's beyond excited for the project. "It's a chance to work with one of the best in the business and someone whose career I could not respect or want to emulate more," he said of Eastwood. "And especially working with Leo right off of Inception! It's just incredible."
