Army Hammer’s childhood and family

He was a key figure in the organization of the summit meeting between Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan in Reykjavik.

On the actor’s wrist there is a tattoo HAMMER in Cyrillic as a tribute to the memory of the Russian roots.

As for Armie’s parents, his mother, Dru Ann, worked in the bank in the past, approving loans to clients. His father Michael Hammer owns Knoedler Publishing and film production company Armand Hammer Productions. In addition, the actor has a younger brother, Victor.

The first seven years of his life, Armie Hammer lived in his hometown, then the family left for the Cayman Islands, and after 5 years they returned. The years spent away from the megalopolis began to tell. In Los Angeles, the teenager lacked palm trees he could climb, and crabs that could be hunted. It turned out that the boy, who was not used to TV and computer games, had no idea about hobbies of his peers.

Somebody told everything to the school principal, he opened the unfortunate businessman’s personal locker, but found only stocks of hand lotion. “Why do you need so much lotion?” asked the indignant director, to which the guy imperturbably replied: “I have very dry hand skin.”
