"The Lone Ranger" star Armie Hammer isn't afraid to get candid, which is exactly what he did while playing 20 Questions with Playboy for the magazine's July/August 2013 issue.
Naturally, sex was on the interview menu, with Hammer admitting that his lovemaking style has changed since he tied the knot with wife Elizabeth Chambers in 2010.
"I used to like to be a dominant lover," he confessed. "I liked the grabbing of the neck and the hair and all that. But then you get married and your sexual appetites change. And I mean that for the better -- it's not like I'm suffering in any way. But you can't really pull your wife's hair. It gets to a point where you say, 'I respect you too much to do these things that I kind of want to do.'"
He continued, "The two us will literally break out laughing in the middle of it, finish up and be like, 'Well, that was oddly fun!' So it becomes a new kind of thing that's less about 'I want to dominate you' and more about both of us having a really good time. It's just a different style."
Along those same playful (and TMI) lines, he's not averse to bringing his work into the bedroom, teasing that his wife "loves" the "Lone Ranger" mask he swiped from the set.
But the Q&A isn't all about Hammer's life between the sheets. The 26-year-old actor was also eager to recount stories from the crazy "Lone Ranger" shoot, including one about co-star Johnny Depp's unexpected fascination with poisonous creepy-crawlies.
"These scorpions were so massive that you'd barely be able to fit one in a cereal bowl," he recalled. "After the scene, we went to check out the dudes who handle them, and one of the handlers just opened his mouth and one of the scorpions crawled out. I was like, 'Okay, I'm good!' and walked the hell away. But Johnny said, 'I want to try that!' and just shoved it into his mouth. He's a total character -- a bohemian and an artist in the truest sense."
Overall, filming the "Lone Ranger" was brutal. "They beat the sh*t out of us," he said. "[T]there were windstorms, then sandstorms, then electrical storms. In New Mexico they laid five miles of train track so we'd have our own rail to shoot on, and Johnny and I spent weeks just running on top of trains. One day it got to 120 degrees, and I was wearing this wool suit, leather gloves, leather mask and hat for 14 hours of daylight. I got so skinny they had to put new holes in my belts."
We're exhausted just reading that. The Disneyfied fruits of Hammer's labors hits theaters July 3.
