Amid quarantining, Armie Hammer had to resort to working a construction job — and it wasn’t for an acting role.
The 6-foot-5 “Call Me By Your Name” star put his muscle to work for a good cause during the Hollywood pandemic shutdown.
During a Tuesday night appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” Hammer said he found himself low on options and when his buddy bought an old motel near Joshua Tree National Park and asked him to come work on it, he took on the challenge.
“It was this kind of abandoned, run-down motel, and I came back from the Cayman Islands where I was during quarantine and I was like, ‘Dude, I have nothing to do,’” Hammer recalled. “He was like, ‘Do you wanna come live with me in this abandoned motel and do construction with me?’”
Although Kimmel said he couldn’t believe a movie star like Hammer would actually say yes to something like that, the actor was game.
“Do you think I had anything else better going on?” he said. “I was literally sitting at home picking boogers and seeing how far I could flick them. I was really out of options.”
The 34-year-old Santa Monica native first revealed he was working construction back in August, following his split from wife of 10 years Elizabeth Chambers in early July.
Hammer, who was last seen on the big screen I 2019 1/4 u2032s “Wounds,” will next star in the Netflix film, “Rebecca,” due out Oct. 21.
