Armie Hammer and his wife insist awards ceremonies make for ''terrible'' date nights.

The 'Call Me By Your Name' star was accompanied to the Critics' Choice Awards at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica on Thursday (11.01.18) by spouse Elizabeth Chambers - the mother of his children Harper, three, and 11-month-old Ford - but the couple insisted there was nothing romantic about their evening.

Asked by 'Entertainment Tonight' if awards shows made for good date nights, they both emphatically replied: ''No!''

Armie added: ''This would be a terrible date.''

Instead, the pair would much prefer a child-free evening with their favourite food.

Quizzed on their dream date night, Elizabeth said: ''Alone time with sushi.''

Armie - who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor but lost out to Sam Rockwell - agreed: ''It's alone time, but yeah. I'd rather go to sushi somewhere quiet.''

Meanwhile, the couple are currently busy planning a Peter Rabbit-themed birthday party for Ford, who turns one on 15 January.

Elizabeth said: ''We're having a Peter Rabbit party with real rabbits.''

And the couple know Ford is too young to be too excited about the bash, but they think it'll be a great opportunity to catch up with their own friends.

Armie said: ''We invited all of our friends who happen to have kids the same age, and it'll be just like a nice excuse to get together with our friends.''

The 31-year-old actor previously admitted he and his wife refuse to talk about their kids when they go out on dates together.

Elizabeth said: ''We go to sushi, and we don't talk talk about the kids, that's the biggest thing.

''We don't have date night just to tell cute kid stories.''

Armie agreed: ''We're not allowed to talk about the kids.''
