Actor Armie Hammer has said kissing his J. Edgar co-star Leonardo DiCaprio wasn't “weird.”

Hammer and DiCaprio star in the upcoming Clint Eastwood-directed film of the life of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover.

DiCaprio plays the lead role in the movie, while Hammer, the 24-year-old co-star of The Social Network, plays Clyde Tolson, Hoover's co-worker and alleged lover.

J. Edgar screenwriter Dustin Lance Black previously promised a “tender” kiss for the men.

Hammer talked about the experience during an interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada.

“It wasn't 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.”

Hammer added that he and DiCaprio, 36, had formed a “special relationship” while filming.

“You always have a special relationship with someone when you finish a movie with them, but he's got a bunch of stuff he is doing after that, I've got a bunch of stuff I'm doing … we didn't start a book club together or anything.”
