Actor Armie Hammer has described his onscreen kiss with Leonardo DiCaprio, insisting the same-sex smooch "wasn’t that weird".
DiCaprio plays the title role in Clint Eastwood's upcoming movie J. Edgar, about controversial Federal Bureau of Investigation (Fbi) boss John Edgar Hoover.
The Social Network star appears opposite DiCaprio as lawyer-turned-Fbi agent Clyde Tolson, the man rumoured to be Hoover's lover, and he has revealed the actors locked lips in a kissing scene.
He tells ET Canada, "It’s the same kind of thing as if you walk onto a set and they hand you a machine gun and (say), ‘Shoot this like you know what you’re doing’ - you can’t grab that thing and go, ‘uh…’ - you kind of have to go, ‘Okay, I know what I’m doing,’ and you’ve just got to go for it. It wasn’t that weird - I have never kissed a guy - it’s not something I’m going to do in my private life, but at the end of it I was, like, man, there is a lot of weird hype.”
