Armie Hammer Thirty-Five Times

Armie Hammer's on the cover of the new British GQ (thx Mac) and the chat with him in the magazine is mostly dark shit -- typical, given our world, and what he's been dealing with this year. I don't blame him. The part about his COVID quarantine with his family making him feel like an animal with its leg trapped in a snare? Jinkies. Anyway I'm glad he went and got himself some therapy, which he details in the piece, and we only wish the best for our Hammer. (Even if he gingerly steps towards the political both-siderism BS he recently pulled on Twitter, which, Armie, NO.)

Anyway since none of that stuff's fun to quote I considered quoting what he says about his mustache, seen in a couple of the photos -- he calls it "part hairy biker, part 1970s pervert" -- but then I saw the interviewer asks him about the CMBYN sequel and well obviously we need to quote that:

GQ: Any news on Find Me, the follow-up to Call Me By Your Name? 

Armie: Not really. I’ve been talking to Luca [Guadagnino, the director], but we haven’t got into it. I haven’t even read the book. I know Luca hasn’t got a full script yet, although he knows what he wants to do with the story, so I don’t know how similar or dissimilar it will be to Find Me the novel. I know if we end up doing it, it’s more important for me to focus on Luca’s vision than to focus on Find Me. The book will be a supplemental thing. 

GQ:  And the world will keep getting excited about this movie with Timothée Chalamet… 

Armie:  I know! The world will keep getting excited, which is a double-edged sword because the more excited they get, the bigger chances are of them watching and going, “This sucks!” But pressure makes diamonds, so here’s to more pressure! 

Armie any time you need a hug, you come find me, I got a hug, I got two even, for you. (As a related aside -- did y'all see that Timmy & Armie both have mini cameos in Luca's HBO series We Are Who We Are? It's true!) Now let us hit the jump for the rest of this shoot...
