If you were having a good morning, I’m here to ruin it. Armie Hammer has a spread in the latest issue of C for Men magazine, and it is obscene. He’s tall, and has beautiful hair, and can grow great stubble, and looks incredibly handsome in the mountainous desert light, and every single one of those things is exploited in this photo shoot.
I haven’t read the accompanying interview yet because I haven’t been able to find the magazine anywhere thus far, and I’m unwilling to ask a store employee where I might be able to find it because I’m afraid they’re going to think I’m asking for “Semen magazine” (really, C for Men seems like a pretty iffy name for your publication) So for now I’m just going to look at the pictures.
For me the entire aesthetic of this shoot is: hero of a romance novel that’s absolutely terrible but that you secretly love anyway. Like the main female character is in a bad place and goes away to rent a cabin and find herself, but a mysterious man has mistakenly rented the cabin for the same week. What to do? Fall in love, obviously.
There’s even a horse! Who I’m sure is temperamental and feisty, but somehow calms under Romantic Hero Armie’s calm guidance.
And of course there’d be a chapter where a storm is rolling in and the power goes out. No more atmospheric lighting from that single strand of decorative bulbs.
(For real though, I usually hate turtlenecks on men, but he pulls one off both here and in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. What are these mysterious turtleneck-y qualities that he possesses?)
They even accounted for a Colin Firth Darcy lake type situation, because of course they did.
This shoot is a welcome edition to the Armie Hammer windfall that we’ve been blessed with recently. I was able to write a whole post a few weeks ago that was just about the projects he had at the Toronto International Film Festival because he was so ubiquitous there. You can see him in The Birth of a Nation right now, and movies he’s a part of are scheduled to be released well into 2017. Nocturnal Animals (with Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal) is already getting awards season buzz, and Free Fire (with Brie Larson) just premiered at the London Film Festival and is an incredibly fun movie according to those who saw it there. Of course, as a movie fan all of these projects excite me. Who isn’t looking for something good coming out that they can anticipate and mark on their calendar? Consider though as an added bonus that there may be many more photo shoots to come, and that would truly be the greatest gift of all.
