Armie Hammer really opens up in a new Playboy interview, with The Lone Ranger star even admitting that the magazine got him in trouble as a kid. “I almost got kicked out of eighth grade for selling Playboy,” he explains. “Me and this guy had a ring where we’d bring magazines packaged with a bottle of lotion to school — brilliant business plan, wasn’t it? — and sell them to the kids for $20.”

Unfortunately, a teacher found out. Hammer recalls, “He said, ‘I’ve heard you’re bringing in these nudie magazines.’ I said, ‘Nope, not me.’ He went, ‘So you wouldn’t mind if we checked your locker?’ Which he then went and did.” He explains, “We’d stashed the actual magazines in bushes by the school, but there was a ton of lotion in the locker. All he could say was, ‘Why do you have so much lotion?’ I said, ‘I get dry hands.’ [laughs] They couldn’t prove I was selling the magazines, so I got away with it. Fun!”

Years later, the actor’s wild side emerged when he and future wife Elizabeth Chambers began spending time together. “My wife and I were supposed to go skeet shooting on our first date, but it started to rain so we ended up going to a bunch of art galleries and then a porno store instead,” says Hammer. Married life has changed the star’s interests in the bedroom. “I don’t know how much we can put here without my parents being embarrassed, but I used to like to be a dominant lover,” explains Hammer. “I liked the grabbing of the neck and the hair and all that. But then you get married and your sexual appetites change.”

He adds, “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.'” Hammer goes on to say of the couple’s intimate moments, “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.”

Playboy asks the actor about rumors linking him to the upcoming film version of Fifty Shades of Grey. It’s not happening. “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,” says Hammer. “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.”
