Evidently, Armie Hammer knew his wife Elizabeth Chambers was the one from the moment they started dating.

"When we finally got together, Armie really wanted to get married," Chambers tells Town & Country during the couple's joint interview with the magazine.

She recalls, "He sat me down and said, 'Look, we don't have to do this. We could just go our own ways, and then one day you'll be 40 and divorced and we'll run into each other, and we'll laugh and go out to dinner and have this same connection, and we'll wonder why we wasted all of that time. Or we could just do it now and enjoy the ride."

Sure enough, the Lone Ranger star's unusual approach worked, as the couple married in 2010 and are going strong.

And while he and his wife seem OK talking about their relationship, Hammer himself is a bit reluctant to discuss acting.

"I don't like to talk about the craft of acting," he says. "It's like asking a guy who screws lug nuts for a living to talk about his technique."

Of course, we'll get to see Hammer do his thing when The Lone Ranger hits theaters on July 3.
