Leonardo DiCaprio and Armie Hammer
The anticipated gay kiss between actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Armie Hammer in Clint Eastwood’s new movie has been filmed.
The film is a biography of the late, controversial FBI director J Edgar Hoover (played by DiCaprio) and includes his rumoured gay relationship with Clyde Tolson (played by Hammer), who was associate director at the FBI.
“It was on Friday when they had their kissing scene, and it was very passionate,” a source told E! Online.
“[They did] more [takes] than Clint normally does,” said the source. “They wanted to make it right… It’s a more involved scene than just the kissing… It was so sexy.”
In February, the film’s scriptwriter, Milk’s Dustin Lance Black, denied claims that the film would be ‘de-gayed’.
Hoover and Tolson not only worked together but dined out, socialised and even holidayed together. They were constant companions for over 40 years and never married. When Hoover died in 1972 Tolson inherited his house and estate.
