Armie Hammer Ran A Naughty Business As A Kid

Stars—they're just like us... well, some of us maybe.

The Lone Ranger (2013) actor Armie Hammer went on The Late Late Show on April 20, 2017 and revealed to host James Corden that he had quite the entrepreneurial spirit as a child. Though, he may have taken things a bit too far.

After fellow guest Rob Delaney admitted he used to steal Playboy and Penthouse magazines and sell them to his friends, Hammer, 30, explained how he followed a similar business model as a kid—with one small but major addition: lotion.

"Oh, God. My wife is going to kill me," Hammer, who's married to actress Elizabeth Chambers, said. "Basically, we would have the Playboy magazines you'd buy. You know those little hotel lotions—the small, individual size lotions?"

"You would sell pornographic magazines and a small bottle lotion to boys at your school?" Corden asked, laughing.

"It sounds so much worse when you say it out loud!" Hammer, who wasn't exactly hurting for money, responded, defending himself. "But in my head it wasn't that bad; I was just an entrepreneur."

But, it turns out that Hammer's business never really took off. After a friend—named Dan, Hammer wants you to know—snitched to the principal about the naughty products that Hammer was pushing, school authorities were on to him. "After lunch, somehow I get called into the principal's office and they're like, 'We hear that you're selling Playboy magazines,'" Hammer explained. "And I was like, 'I have no idea what you're talking about.' And they're like, 'No, no. We heard this and we want to go look in your locker right now.' And I was like, 'Fine! Let's go look in my locker.'"

"What they didn't know is that I had a weird feeling something like this would happen," he went on. "I stuffed them in a bunch of plastics bags and tied them up and stuffed them in the bushes in front of the McDonald's that was right by our school on Santa Monica Boulevard. They opened my locker and there's obviously no Playboys in there, but there was a bunch of little cans of lotion. They're like, 'What's the lotion for?' I was like, 'I get dry hands—thank you very much.'"

Man, who knew the Social Network (2010) star was one of the bad kids, huh?
