London: Actor Armie Hammer says his onscreen kiss with Leonardo DiCaprio in the upcoming movie ‘J. Edgar’ wasn`t that weird.

"It`s the same kind of thing as if you walk onto a set and they hand you a machine gun and (say), `Shoot this like you know what you`re doing` - you can`t grab that thing and go, `uh?`. You kind of have to go, `Okay, I know what I`m doing,` and you`ve just got to go for it," a website quoted Hammer as saying.

"It wasn`t that weird - I have never kissed a guy - it`s not something I`m going to do in my private life, but at the end of it I was, like, man, there is a lot of weird hype," he said.

DiCaprio plays the title role in Clint Eastwood`s upcoming movie ‘J. Edgar’, which is a story about controversial Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) boss John Edgar Hoover.

‘The Social Network’ star appears opposite DiCaprio as lawyer-turned-FBI agent Clyde Tolson.
