2021 is already a bad year for Armie Hammer. At the beginning of January, several of his ex-girlfriends made themselves known to accuse the American actor of “cannibal” sexual tendencies. One of them, Courtney Vucekovic, shared sordid details with the press, letting it be known that during their relationship, Hammer had a disturbing relationship with body and blood. “He told me he wanted to break my ribs, grill them and eat them,” she told the PageSix site. “He was like ‘I wanna bite you’. If I had a cut on my hand, he would lick it. It was really weird.”
And it’s the turn of another Hammer’s ex to come out of the silence. On January 29, the actor’s ex-wife, Elizabeth Chambers, took to social media for the first time since the charges against Hammer began. In an Instagram post, the media Just Jared announced the future collaboration of Luca Guadagnino and Timothée Chalamet, former colleagues of Hammer on Call me by your name, for the production of a film centered on … a cannibal love story . No, Armie Hammer is not attached to the project, but we can understand that his ex-wife needed to express herself.
Elizabeth Chambers: “I don’t have the words”
“I don’t have the words,” Chambers said on Instagram, visibly outraged by the daring of director Luca Guadagnino and Timothée Chalamet. And she’s not the only one who finds the situation shocking. On Instagram, reactions to Just Jared’s announcement are mostly negative, with some internet users accusing Guadagnino and Chalamet of “making money off the back of a crime” and “using humor to protect a predator” .
Elizabeth Chambers began divorce proceedings in July 2020. Armie Hammer, for his part, has withdrawn from two of his professional projects since the emergence of the rumors that overwhelm him: the comedy Shotgun Wedding, in which he was to perform the reply to Jennifer Lopez, and the series The Offer, a look back at the genesis of the successful film The Godfather.
