Tom Ford told Armie Hammer to lose 15 pounds before the start of filming of ‘Nocturnal Animals’

Saw Nocturnal Animals at ArcLight in Hollywood last night and really dug it. Not everyone did but I was fully engaged and thought Jake Gyllenhaal was, as always, first-rate. Anyway, also in the movie in a small role was Armie Hammer who, entertainment reporter Jeanne Wolf found out this week, had to trim down for the role. Jeanne writes on Facebook: The handsome director (Tom Ford) admitted to me that he cared a lot about how his stars looked, especially Hammer. “When I met him, I told him to lose fifteen pounds for the movie and he did. He was too good looking to have that extra weight. And, of course, the way he looked on film mattered very much.’ Then Hammer revealed Ford’s control of fashion on the film set. “I’m going to get in trouble for telling you this,” laughed Hammer as he sipped his martini topped with two perfect olives. “When my character is not as suave and fashionable at the start of the movie Tom told me he’d dress me in Brooks Brothers. Then when I got rich and fancy and stylish he put me in all Tom Ford clothes.’
