American actor Armand Douglas Hammer was born in the suburban outskirts of Los Angeles California. Hammer comes from an upper middle class family that has a massed moderate wealth in the financial sector. His grandparents were oil tycoons. When he was five he and his family moved to the Cayman Islands where he lived till he returned to LA during High School. It was definitely a life of privilege. Hammer is half Jewish and Russian.

Sorry ladies this man is taken. He married TV Personality Elizabeth Chambers in 2010.
With his striking blue eyes, square jaw and 6-foot-5 Adonis frame, Hammer clearly has the good-looks department covered.
