He’s 6’5″, 220 pounds — but there’s only one of him — unlike the genius performance he gives of the two Winklevoss twins in David Fincher’s Social Network.
Last year we spied then newcomer Armie Hammer on Gossip Girl as Gabriel Edwards - ponzi scheming boyfriend of “fauxcialite” Poppy Lifton.
But what makes us really interested in Armie is that he is an L.A. native. Born and raised in Los Angeles, the 24 year old actor still lives in L.A. with his wife Elizabeth Chambers who he married in 2010, and met through his best friend artist Tyler Ramsey.
Armie grew up between Los Angeles, Dallas, Cayman Islands (ages 7 – 13) and is named for his late great-grandfather, Armand Hammer, a local philanthropist, business tycoon, Angeleno and Fabergé egg collector. Armie’s father is a local car collector.
Armie attended Grace Christian Academy in Cayman Islands (a grade school his father started (!)), and L.A. Baptist High School and Calvary Junior high in L.A. During the college years, he went to Pasadena City College and UCLA; eventually dropping out to pursue acting.
Armie has one brother (21) who is a business major at college.
