Fifty Shades of Grey Casting: Armie Hammer Rejects Role — “It’s Just Mommy Porn”
Stars either seem to love Fifty Shades of Grey or they can't wait to insult it. Armie Hammer belongs to the latter group.
The Lone Ranger star talked to Playboy about rumors he could play the lead role of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades film series.

"No one actually offered me the movie, but while I was working on Lone Ranger my agent brought it up, and I said 'Nope.' I mean, come on — it’s just mommy porn. I’m not going to sit on top of the laundry machine in spin cycle reading about putting a ball gag in someone’s mouth. That doesn’t do it for me."
However, also in the Playboy interview, Armie talked about his sex life with his "feminist" wife, journalist/actress/restaurateur Elizabeth Chambers. "... I used to like to be a dominant lover. 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.’”
And he's sure he doesn't want to do Fifty Shades? Might be the perfect outlet for those desires...
