Ellen heard all about how Armie Hammer kissed Leonardo Dicaprio and reviewed Clint Eastwood’s recent film, J. Edgar.
Ellen: J. Edgar Review
The preview showed J. Edgar, played by Leondardo, getting into his car after a trial that left him livid.
He yelled at his protege, Clyde Tolson, played by Armie, to fire the FBI operative who killed John Dillinger.
“Firing the man who killed John Dillinger would be a PR disaster,” Clyde said to J. Edgar.
J. Edgar consented to giving the operative a boring desk job but qualifeid that, “If he wants to keep that job, he best stay out of the papers!”
Ellen: Armie Hammer Kissed Leonardo Dicaprio
“There is a kissing scene between you and Leo in this movie,” Ellen said. “How was that?”
“The first guy I ever kissed in my life was Leonardo DiCaprio,” Armie said and teased the mostly female crowd that they should all be jealous.
As fun as a kissing scene between Leonardo and Armie seems, Armie said that it was darker than it sounds.
“It’s not the kind of kissing scene everybody thinks it is,” he said, explaining that there were “fake blood and broken glass involved.”
Armie explained that the kiss between Clyde and J. Edgar is the violent culmination of years of painfully repressed sexual tension.
Trying to lighten the mood, Ellen said, “I heard he has soft lips.”
“He does have soft lips,” Armie said.
Ellen: Armie Hammer’s hero Clint Eastwood
Apparently, Clint Eastwood is a great person and really easy to work under. Armie Hammer said that he expected Clint to be a grizzly and unapproachable jerk, but found out he was quite the opposite.
“He’s fantastic and he’s so much better than you would think,” Armie said. “He’s so nice. He’s so funny.”
Armie even encouraged everyone else to meet Clint.
“They say don’t meet your hero, but if your hero is Clint Eastwood, meet him because he’s awesome,” he said.
