Like much else about his charmed life, Armie Hammer’s handwriting is perfect — all swooping loops and exacting peaks, like something from a bygone era. I’m paging through one of his obsessively maintained notebooks while we idle at a red light in his black pickup truck, American-built and high off the ground, much like the 6-foot-5 actor himself. On this cloudless, late-summer afternoon, as he drives on the Pacific Coast Highway to his favorite Greek spot in Malibu, I flip the pages — diligent notes pertaining to Martin Ginsburg, husband of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whom Hammer will portray in an upcoming biopic of the Supreme Court justice starring Felicity Jones. “That’s what happens when you grow up on a British island,” says Hammer, 31, after I remark on his meticulous penmanship. “You have mandatory cursive classes.”

He’s referring to the Cayman Islands, where he spent a good chunk of his childhood. His father had never laid eyes on the Caribbean tax haven until it showed up in the 1993 Tom Cruise movie The Firm; but so entranced was he by what he saw, he decided to relocate the family. If that rings odd, then you probably did not grow up in the same bubble of extreme privilege as Hammer, great-grandson of Russian-Jewish oil tycoon Armand Hammer. His namesake (his full name is Armand Douglas Hammer) graces landmarks and buildings all over Los Angeles. Case in point, our journey begins at Holmby Park in Beverly Hills, home to the Armand Hammer Golf Course. “They were going to turn it into high-rises in the early ’80s,” explains Hammer. “So my great-grandfather just gave them an endowment.”

As irksomely perfect as his existence may seem, Hammer’s journey from the “fucking paradise” of the Cayman Islands to movie star (a label that makes him bristle) has faced its fair share of false starts. After his breakthrough playing the Winklevoss twins in 2010’s The Social Network, Hammer has struggled to emerge as a bankable leading man. There was his starring role in 2013’s The Lone Ranger, for which Disney lost $200 million, leading to studio head Rich Ross’ ouster. Two years later, he co-starred with Henry Cavill in the underperforming The Man From U.N.C.L.E. And his performance in 2016’s The Birth of a Nation, a role some thought could earn him a best supporting actor Oscar, was overshadowed by a rape scandal involving its director and star, Nate Parker.

Timothée Chalamet was a student at Columbia University when he first read Call Me By Your Name, the gay love story that’s had critics swooning since its Sundance Film Festival premiere in January. 

After hearing of Luca Guadagnino’s film adaptation, he rented André Aciman’s 2007 novel through a book-sharing program and “didn’t give it back for a year,” Chalamet says. “I got charged $100 for a late fee.” 
“Then you got paid to do the movie and could pay it back!” co-star Armie Hammer chimes in. 

Set in the idyllic Italian countryside in 1983, Call Me (in theaters in New York and Los Angeles Friday) depicts the blossoming romance between 17-year-old Elio (Chalamet), a precocious yet sensitive musical prodigy, and 24-year-old Oliver (Hammer), who comes to work for Elio’s professor father (Michael Stuhlbarg) for the summer. 

Initially put off by Oliver’s cockiness, Elio admires from afar and pursues a local girl (Esther Garrel). But through leisurely bike rides and poolside chats, the infatuated teen discovers surprising depth to Oliver and eventually acts on his feelings, embarking on a steamy relationship that mostly goes unacknowledged by Elio’s progressive parents.

“You’ll be meeting in the man cave,” the publicist said, pushing open the door to the ground floor of a villa set in the lush gardens of the Sunset Marquis.

Previous hotel guests have included members of Aerosmith, Guns N’ Roses and Metallica, and while they might never have visited the man cave, it seemed to bear homage to them, or to hair metal, or to hetero teenage boys, or to something. It had a pool table, a guitar, plenty of booze, a framed print of a nude body-painted woman, and another of a skull enveloped in flames. Darkened windows kept out the California sun.

By any measure, it was a curious spot to interview Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer, the stars of “Call Me by Your Name,” due Nov. 24, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story about two young men who fall in love during an idyllic sunlit Italian summer decades ago.

Arriving at the cave moments later, Mr. Chalamet and Mr. Hammer took in the décor with a few chortles, and then Mr. Hammer beelined to the guitar and began strumming, as Mr. Chalamet threw himself onto a big L-shaped couch. The pair have fallen into an easy camaraderie that extends most places they go. For a good chunk of the film’s shoot last year in northern Italy, and in the days leading up to it, they were often the only ones who spoke English, which helped them forge a connection that crackles through their scenes. They have also been promoting the film together, on and off, since its triumphant premiere earlier this year at Sundance, where it sent festivalgoers into a swoon. [Source]
