ELLE by Doug Inglish
And you thought your ex was bad.
Armie Hammer, who recently opened up about his sex life with his wife in Playboy, has continued to dish more bedroom details, spilling stories about his scary ex-girlfriends in the July issue of Elle magazine.
"One chick tried to stab me when we were having sex. I should so not be telling this story," he says before continuing with his coital confession. "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," he admitted.
The 26-year-old heartthrob, who didn't attend college in order to pursue career in film, also admitted he was originally distracted by the L.A. party scene while trying to break into the biz.
"I'd grown up in a household of so much love and so much good, everything just felt wholesome," the Lone Ranger star revealed. "Once I was on my own, I was like, 'Let's see how hot this candle can burn,'" he explained, admitting that, for three or four years, there were drugs, drinking and staying up for days on end with girls who were "bad, bad news."
But Hammer has put his partying in the past and is now happily married to wife Elizabeth Chambers, "I like the idea of marriage," he said. "I like the idea that I have a best friend. It's comforting."
Too cute. And Armie also admitted he's a hopeless romantic, who isn't afraid to get in touch with his sensitive side.
"I have no qualms about kissing her in public," he said. "I know some guys are like, 'Stop, there's people around.' There's such a big part of our culture, the male psyche—you don't cry, you don't show weakness. I mean, guys are just as emotionally complicated as women. We just play dumb better."
Which is, perhaps, a side to himself he should showcase in his next role.
"I'm not crazy about taking my shirt off for a movie," he revealed. "Right now, that's the thing: You have a young, handsome actor, take his shirt off, put him in front of the camera. It sets up this pressure to stay camera ready all the time. I don't want to think about myself that much. The guys who do it are like, ‘Oh, it's been two hours, I have to eat yams. My glycemic index is dropping.' It can very easily turn people into narcissists. It just seems silly."
Agreed. But we'd still squeal at the sight of Armie shirtless.
