Armie Hammer’s agents dropped him, which means even more stuff is about to come out

'On the Basis of Sex' Washington D.C. Premiere - Arrivals

Even before the “Armie Hammer is a rapist/cannibal/abuser” conversation which we’re having right now, Hammer was always “off” somehow. In a different era, he would have been a shellacked-hair leading man, but modern Hollywood has always had issues with where to “put” Armie. I thought, before now, that was about his propensity to pop off on social media and in interviews, but maybe once you’re with him face to face, he genuinely reads as what he is, a creepy guy. That being said, he’s still a white guy with family money. Surely powerful Hollywood types would race to protect him, right? Um, not so much? On Friday, Armie’s agents dropped him as a client. That’s a pretty major move.

Armie Hammer has been dropped by WME. Hammer losing his agency is the latest development of a career in freefall and comes amid controversy over graphic messages he allegedly sent several women over social media. Sources tell THR that his personal publicist has also stepped away.

Last week, Hammer exited The Offer, a Paramount+ series about the making of The Godfather. Before that, he was forced to resign from Lionsgate’s action romantic comedy, which would have paired him opposite Jennifer Lopez. (Josh Duhamel replaced him in the movie.)

Hammer’s string of exits came after the revelation of disturbing messages — as yet unverified — that were posted to an Instagram account run by a woman who said she had an affair with Hammer. The messages contain graphic descriptions of sexual fantasies that include abuse and even cannibalism. Several other women have since said they experienced similar exchanges with the Call Me By Your Name star. Hammer has denied the allegations.

It’s a really big deal, again, that Armie’s agents quit that bitch. Think about it: even Johnny Depp still has Hollywood representation (he joined CAA after leaving his longtime UTA agent over financial issues in 2016). You can be a completely garbage human being and you can still pay your agent to believe in you. So, obviously, this has people guessing that some even worse sh-t is about to come out. Like, they’re literally going to find body parts in his freezer or a woman’s body buried in his backyard. Word on the streets is that an exposé is going to drop soon, possibly in a major publication like, say, the Hollywood Reporter or the New York Times. Is Ronan Farrow on it?

    I have a horrible feeling that this is going to involve children.

    • Betsy says:

      I’m still reeling from news about that latest GOP worker to be arrested for child (something; I try to skim that stuff because it’s so upsetting). I realize that child sexual abuse isn’t limited to one party, but there’s a twitter list out there with 590+ Republicans (working in a capacity to further the GOP’s political aims, I mean – policy workers, elected officials, fundraisers, etc) who have been brought up on charges and it begins to feel like the whole Q thing was GOP projection.

      Didn’t Armie Hammer share some magaty feelings previously? I think there’s a through line from the political lack of empathy – “pull yourself up by your bootstraps! personal responsibility!” – to the way that they treat women and children. Something is seriously broken in parts of America.

      • Elizabeth says:

        “the whole Q thing was GOP projection” — exactly. Trump was close to Epstein and joked publicly about him liking “younger” women.

      • lucy2 says:

        Pretty much everything the GOP complains about is projection.

      • Genessee says:

        Armie is not a MAGA. His wife is and so is his father. Armie is all in for BLM and would have loved an AOC/Biden ticket.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      There are screenshots doing the rounds allegedly from Hammer saying he fantasizes about “Chris Watts- ing his kids” I don’t know if they are real or faked but are on an account that was publishing other screenshots from Hammer in the start of this blowing up.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      But pedophiles are still protected If you have money, which Hammer does. Epstein cases involved media members and film industry people. This might involve a missing person.

    • Mac says:

      I think the simpler explanation is Hammer is a mediocre actor who has limited appeal and is hard to cast. He also sounds like a real prick. His agency and publicist saw an opportunity to dump a bad client and took it.

      • Celia456 says:

        @Mac Agreed! He’s handsome in theory but utterly forgettable. I once watched a movie of his and literally forgot he was in it! He shows up in a scene and I’m “who’s that?” I was sober

      • Jo73c says:

        yes – as demonstrated by the fact that he’s been so quickly & easily replaced in the projects he’s pulled out of (been dropped from)

      • paranormalgirl says:

        He’s like the human personification of the Silence from Doctor Who. As soon as I see him, I forget everything about him.

      • Kaykay says:

        I watched Rebecca the other day. I have no experience watching his movies, but I wanted to see if he was good or not.
        He was the worst, man! Nothing. No chemistry or charisma. No depth. Bad actor. As empty as his inside must be.

      • Soupie says:

        Josh Duhamel is much more compatible co-starring with JLo too. They should have cast him in the first place.

    • AlpineWitch says:

      There are a couple of accounts on Twitter that say human remains were found in a place close to where his friend has a motel?

      The fact agency and publicist dropped him together at the same time is a big deal.

      • Beenie22 says:

        Jesus Christ this thread is like something you’d see on Parler with the Qanon folks.

        Yes — he’s a scumbag. But why don’t we wait for actual evidence before linking him to pedophilia or alleged human remains.

        I’m very sick of these self-indulgent, morbid conspiracy theories. Not fun in politics and not fun here.

      • Kaykay says:

        I read that too somewhere, can’t remember where though. But it was that AH and his friends co-owned a motel or something like that, and a young woman went missing 4 miles from that hotel.

    • lucky says:

      OMG. I was thinking about the TV show FLACK the whole time I was reading this story and then I got to your comment…. efffff

  2. runaway says:

    Call Me By Your Name is literally my favourite film of the last 10 years. I watch it like once a month. Admittedly I watch it for Tim Chalamet but I love the passion of their relationship. How am I gonna watch it now, he physically repulses me now. I mean he was always creepy but now… *shudder*

    • February-Pisces says:

      It’s a beautiful film. I’ve only seen it once and had no idea how popular it was as I never heard of it. I know it was on Netflix until recently but it looks like it’s since been removed. Probably because of Armie, which sucks. But Timothy Chalamet is something else. I don’t know what it is about him, cos he’s not you typical leading man, but he just has so much charisma on screen.

    • lucy2 says:

      I didn’t care for that one so much, but loved the Man from UNCLE, mostly for the styling and the incredible Elizabeth DeBicki. It was the only film I ever enjoyed AH in too. But now, yuck, will not watch that again.

    • Truthiness says:

      I loved Call Me by Your Name but I felt the whole movie was pulled back by Armie’s mediocre at best acting. He just wasn’t believable. He was superficial and glib, set amongst actors with depth. It was so frustrating because the other components of the movie were SO good.

      • ClaraBelle says:

        But, wasn’t the character he played in the movie supposed to be “superficial and glib”?

        I thought the movie was just mesmerizing and brilliant. I thought the acting was top notch by everyone in the film including Hammer. But I’m really sickened by the allegations which I assume are mostly true.

    • tsk says:

      You like the film that had a romance between a 17 year old (who looked 15) and a 24 year old (who looked 40)? Not a good look. That film and book are a gay tragedy. In that they are a tragedy to gays and LGBT people everywhere.

      Both the film and the book it is based on are insanely overrated, tbh. The film looked like an Italian Ministry of Tourism advertisement, and had all the depth of a postcard. It’s pretty, yes, but not THAT pretty and it is quite hollow.

      I won’t claim to be Miss Cleo, but I remember watching that film and having this goosebumps moment regarding Hammer. I couldn’t have imagined what he was actually like, not even in my wildest dreams tho lmao

    • Eva says:

      He’s wood in CBYN, it should have been a younger actor than an older one. He was too old for the role and his age showed, the character should be 24 years old, and he has no charisma.

  3. Kiera says:

    I’m going with consensual cannibalism. I feel like they wouldn’t drop him for sex abuse cause they would think maybe they could maybe ride it out/rehabilitate the image and make money off him. Actual cannibalism though yeah that might do it.

    • Rapunzel says:

      Consensual cannibalism? Who’d consent to that?

      • Kiera says:

        I blame CSI for why I know about this. But there are people who for very high sums of money will let people take their body parts. What they then do with those body parts is up to the person who paid. Yeah, I fell down a weird internet hole one day trying to figure out if it was a real thing. It is.

      • Ellie says:

        There’s a name for people who fetishized cannibalism, and they’re called vores. I’ve seen it discussed on Reddit, but I also saw it in my psych textbooks in college. Trigger warning for abuse and murder for the paragraph below.

        There was one case I still think about and shudder about, one man kept eating parts of another man, including his penis, until he eventually died. I can’t believe they taught us that in an early level psych class, possibly even 101.

      • Tanguerita says:

        for those with stronger stomachs:
        I live in Germany, that’s why I remember this case vividly, even though it’s been twenty years.

      • Julie says:

        We do have cases of consenting victims. The internet has made it easier for these sadists to find masochists of an equivalent grade. The most famous recent case being a German gay man by the name Armin Meiwes but it’s speculated it’s happening a lot more frequently under the radar. I read a piece about these guys who volunteer their limbs on fetish sites, so they don’t end up dead but just disabled.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        There was that incident in… Germany (?) where a man put an ad out to be eaten and killed. In that order. It only made news again because the man was released as it was technically consensual. *shudders*

        It does happen, but I think something worse is about to come out.

      • Nina Simone says:

        Yikes. Such a coincidence- their names are similar

        Armin /Armie

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        Armin / Armie…hmmmm. 🤔

        lol yes, I know…NO connection. But still a weird coincidence, dontcha think?

      • Sam the Pink says:

        Well, it doesn’t need to involve death, actually. There are people who are, I guess, curious. There’s a pretty well-known case of a guy who lost his leg in a motorcycle accident and took the leg home and cooked it and he and his friends sampled it in some tacos, and yes, it’s real – here is the Vice story on it:

        I mean, I guess there are some people who are genuinely curious about tasting human meat, and I suppose as long as nobody dies and the meat is offered consensually and freely, like the man above, it’s…okay? Maybe? But that’s clearly not what Armie was suggesting, so I don’t think it applies here.

      • Yikes says:

        “Consensual cannibalism? Who’d consent to that?”

        As pointed out above, like that German case where the guy wanted to be eaten (and to eat himself whilst still alive and possible). But can also imagine something like a sell-your-organ-to-fund-iPad-purchase situation. He goes to a country with poor legal system and lots of poverty and finds a shady doctor to remove the rib from a woman who gets USD$5,000 for both of her lower ribs. Whilst she’s recovering in bed he gets to BBQ it in front of her, pull off each tender strand of meat, and suck out the marrow. Sick, sick man!

        House of Effie is posting in IG stories that she knows what’s going down and she feels physically sick.

      • tsk says:

        It’s funny that people mention the famous cannibal case from Germany, because I think it is in that case where the jury declared the victim mentally incapable of consent with the argument that nobody who would consent to being killed and eaten is in the right state of mind to actually consent in a meaningful and useful definition of the word.

        Interesting case, tbh.

    • Case says:

      “Actual cannibalism though yeah that might do it.” It’s not funny, but this made me laugh. This story just keeps getting stranger and stranger.

  4. Feedmechips says:

    Deuxmoi had a post the other day suggesting something massive is about to drop that he can never recover from.

    • Julie says:

      Deuxmoi is just the 2020s Enty. Enty of course being the 2010s, Ted Casablanca. These types have always operated on repeating speculation as if it’s sourced and then relying on confirmation bias to build a reputation for being right.

      Armie has been let go because he was never an fiscal asset. He was desperately trying to build his value as a prestige hire but even that has faltered given the dreck that was Rebecca. He was dropped because he simply isn’t worth the hustle of defending and once one rep jumped, the rest didn’t want to be left holding the bag of crap that is AH.

      What Deuxmoi is picking up is that a bunch of serious journalists have been circling the story. They’ve been following a few victims accounts for example. But nobody knows what angle they will take. They may well be looking to tell a story about BDSMs place in our evolving world and ludicrousness of expecting people to fully understand the potential psychological implications of consent to being a punching bag for someone’s sexual pleasure. Or maybe they will write pieces castigating us for being “prudes”. Who the hell knows? I can promise you Deuxmoi does not.

      • Feedmechips says:

        After I posted this comment, I saw Deuxmoi posted again, this time saying the LA Times has a piece coming out. I suppose we shall see soon enough.

        Also, +1 for the throwback reference to Ted Casablanca.

      • Kebbie says:

        DeuxMoi says all the time they’re just posting anonymously sent submissions and they’re not able to vet or verify any of it. Enty claimed to actually have knowledge on celebrities (and buried his site disclaimer that it was fiction.) Ted Casablancas obviously presented himself as being in the know too. I don’t think DM has ever done that.

      • Christine says:

        I still miss Ted Casablanca! I sat behind him on a plane once, and spent the flight passing a US Weekly back and forth, writing various thoughts on the photos. My son spilled milk on the issue when he was a toddler, I almost cried!

      • Yikes says:

        Christine, such a great story.

      • Case says:

        People still refer to Enty as being credible and I never got it. Blinds might have something to them, but they need to be taken with a grain of salt.

    • jbyrdku says:

      Read that yesterday!

    • lucy2 says:

      I saw that as well, something about illegal acts. Yikes.

  5. Joy says:

    He’s either eaten someone or done something to a child. Because God knows in Hollywood nothing matters.

  6. P says:

    This reminds me so much to the family in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. A bunch of rich psychos.

    • Mariposa says:

      There was a long interview with Armie’s aunt on the Juicy Scoop podcast a few days ago, and WOW. It was amazing. She’s written a book about what it was like growing up in her family, and it is a bit similar to the book Trump’s niece wrote. She said her father AND her brother (who is Armie’s dad) sexually abused her and that Armie’s dad is a really dark, evil person. She just made so much more sense of the whole thing.

      Interestingly, she said that the family had a pattern of looking perfect on the outside but having a very dark underbelly, and it seems like Armie was repeating that pattern. I think she also said she thinks there is more to come out. She was fairly compassionate towards Armie and said that mutigenerational trauma is an awful thing and she really feels for his children and hopes he can get help.

      • Deering24 says:

        AH’s dad is hard-core evangelical Christian, so that bespeaks a lot of cray even before you get to the “four generations of wealth ruled by a sinister patriarch” thing. 😳😳

    • Va Va Kaboom says:

      I thought the exact same thing when his family’s deeply disturbing past got brought back up along with this new scandal. I honestly wondered if they were a bit of inspiration for Stieg Larsson, though I doubt it.

  7. Loulou says:

    That is wow, even Mel Gibson is still getting work. But I don’t think he personally has a lot of money and he really is not the biggest money maker or ever was one. The expose might be horrendous, plus he doesn’t have a billion dollar franchise. Call me cynical but I think it was a monetary decision.

    • Watson says:

      Yup. It’s never about morals. He’s been dropped because whatever Armie did goes beyond sharing photos without consent, emotional abuse and physical harm where the women lived to tell their tales. He also tellingly doesn’t have a massive money making history like Depp or Mel Gibson or woody Allen. Making money is the ultimate shield in Hollywood. Which leads me to conclude Armie must have an actual body in the closet or something.

    • Mia4s says:

      The fact that the publicist bailed too is probably an indicator that something REALLY bad is coming.

      Interesting twist on the agent thing though: one of the women who outed this whole situation leaked text messages that seem to show that Hammer’s main agent (they work in teams for the name stars, but there is usually a “main” one) Brandon Liebman was (a) helping Hammer conceal the “affairs” from his wife; and (b) cheating on his own wife!

      Now to be fair at this point there’s no evidence that the agent was involved in the same stuff or knew the details (covering for someone’s extramarital affairs is trashy, but not criminal). And he’s got bigger clients with better prospects who he may be in danger of losing, so I’m sure he didn’t lose sleep over dropping Hammer. But if the agent decides he is leaving to “spend more time with his family” very soon? Well I am going to have some follow up questions.

    • observing says:

      Aren’t their actors with smaller/lesser resumes that still have agents though? Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl has scandal attached to him, and even he still seems to have an agent. Something Hammer has done must be even worse.

  8. hindulovegod says:

    In wonder if his family’s sordid past will get an airing. Someone had been scrubbing those Wikipedia’s of the bad stuff for years. I’m surprised his publicist didn’t try to use the family’s skeletons to help him. Weave a story of overcoming abuse and dysfunction?

  9. Lady Luna says:

    I do wonder what he did that people are jumping ship. People are saying on Twitter that he left the country too.

  10. Onerous says:

    There are screenshots of his DMs where he implicates his agent – saying that he knows the game and helps him set things up. And that Armie knows his secrets and that’s why the agent helps him.

  11. Emily says:

    Someone commented before that a girl went missing near the hotel he and his friends own/renovating. Wonder if he’s being named a suspect. Honestly, if he’s being dropped it’s bad.

  12. FF says:

    Is that vid of his son sucking on his toe still up? Because why do that, let alone film it and put it on Instagram.

  13. Linda says:

    Whatever it is I hope we’ve seen the last of him and his career.

  14. June says:

    Someone called him “Christian grey without the love”

  15. lisa says:

    if he did something to a kid, the kid would have to be really young and there would have to be proof like video for it to cancel him. without proof or if it was a teen, that wouldnt cancel him with everyone

  16. NΞΞNΔ ZΞΞ says:

    Is this a big loss to the acting community? I don’t think I’ve seen him in anything where his performance wasn’t kind of wooden.

  17. Justpassingby says:

    This was written almost 3 years ago and this feels so eerie now:
    But no doubt. He has the perfect blank, emotionless Patrick Bateman face. His eyes, his face and his voice are expressionless and show absolutely no emotion.

    • Kaykay says:

      “What am I suggesting? That Armie Hammer could murder someone, and there would be no reliable witnesses. The only question left is how many people he’s killed.”
      Oh man!

  18. BB8 Squirrel says:

    The rumor is that Amy Kaufman with the LA Times is doing the exposé.

  19. jbyrdku says:

    Someone with the pseudonym “Not a Cannibal” is confirming that the story will break in the LA Times soon, if not the next few days.

  20. February-Pisces says:

    Pre cannibalism scandal, Armie’s career always kinda confused me. It’s like he spent the last 10 years ‘almost’ happening. He had the looks, and the charm, and he was getting solid work, but he never really ‘happened’. I wonder how much the industry knew about him. Notoriously everyone knows everyone’s business and he was still getting work. He has the mind of a serial killer, regardless if he actually hurt anyone. It wasn’t safe to be around him.

    • Meghan says:

      Did he have the charm though? I remember in 2013 or 14, he and his wife did a spread in Town and Country and it was a really big deal for…reasons. I feel like the vibe was that he didn’t want to do it but she did? I can’t remember. I do remember reading a copy that we had at the hotel I worked at and being very underwhelmed.

      The only thing I’ve watched with him in it was Rebecca and that was so horribly blah.

    • lucy2 says:

      It is kind of interesting – he has all the components, but never really clicked as a big star, never got a franchise, nothing. And God knows Hollywood likes to promote white guys like that. It does make me wonder if there is something off putting about him in person.

    • February-Pisces says:

      I think Armie has the sort of looks where he would be classed as a tall dashing handsome man, by default. Considering “Hollywood” seems to think Ryan Reynolds and all the Chris’s are leading men, then I definitely see Armie amongst those men. I always thought he may have been closeted considering he had more chemistry with Leo dicaprio and tim chamalet than he’s ever had with any woman. But I was wrong, most likely the women he was starting opposite were probably creeped out by him. It reminds on a Jared Leto and Margo Robbie, I think she only agreed to the Harley Quinn sequel as long as he wasn’t apart of it.

    • Deering24 says:

      February-Pisces, looking back on it, there was a lot more square-jawed handsome white actor competition when Hammer came along. Hell, just the MCU alone had a deep talent bench. Looks and moderate talent just weren’t enough to make AH stand out.

  21. MellyMel says:

    Something is definitely going to drop soon. I wonder if it involves children, cause other than that I can’t see why else he would be dropped by everyone. Also after learning about his family’s history…none of this is surprising. A bunch of rich weirdos!

    • Yikes says:

      The underage girls/kittens have been alleged by House of Effie, but my best guess is he went to a country with less stringent legal protections and paid a woman to remove her ribs so he could smoke them and eat them in front of her.

  22. Deering24 says:

    I don’t get it. Alexander Skarsgard is way more handsome and talented than this guy, so why not just hire him? He would have made a hella-better Maxim de Winter, fer sure…

    • Giggles says:

      I totally agree. Skarsgard would have made a much better Maxim.

      I think this guy is trying to be Christian Grey. Stupid.

      • Deering24 says:

        Giggles—heh. In one of history’s great ironies, Hammer turned down the Grey role, disparaging it as vanilla “mommy porn.” Go figure. 🤣😈

    • Julie says:

      I would hope Skarsgard is tired of playing men who either are or appear to be cold or sinister (which is the only way Rebecca works and the reason this version was such a fail). I’ll start to wonder what exactly draws him to such parts

      That said, Skarsgard is *also* an example of a system that exists to make white men stars. What’s he doing that a hundred actors of color couldnt do just as well?

      • Ann says:

        I wrote an imdb review for “Rebecca”. In it, I said Maxim should have an air of mystery and even a touch of the sinister, that Sam Riley who played Rebecca’s cousin would have been better in the role because Armie Hammer was “too darned wholesome.”

        That didn’t age well.

      • Deering24 says:

        Ann, heh. Who knew Hammer was worse than Maxim? 😉

      • tsk says:


        Chiwetel Ejiofor as Maxim de Winter?

        He’s a terrific actor that could work the sinister/mysterious aspect of the character, while still giving him humanity and make the audience root for him.

      • Deering24 says:

        Hee. Idris Elba as Maxim. 😈😉

      • Dollycoa says:

        What about ‘Dont remake Rebecca, especially not with two of the blandest actors working today!

      • deering24 says:

        Dollycoa, and there’s that, too. 🙂 Have yet to see a remake to compare with the original, even though the latter is way problematic.

      • dollycoa says:

        Yes. Its also problematic to have a ‘love conquers all’ ending that the new version had, and its all OK because Rebecca was a horrible person. A shame when a book written 70 years ago passes judgement on a man who murders his wife because she flirts with other men and winds him up but a 2020 film doesnt.

  23. Liz version 700 says:

    I think we are about to find out about suspicious deaths. God I hope there are no kids involved in this awfulness. This dude is a sociopath.

    • MF1 says:

      Yup, my hunch is that the news will involve violence or a body. I 100% believe he’s a sociopath.

      • Yikes says:

        Sociopath + likely true sexual deviant, who gets strong sexual pleasure out of wielding power over others and seeing others suffer, whether that’s in the form of pushing the boundaries of consent or causing them pain (carving the A into ex’s skin).

  24. Em says:

    Wait can someone fill me in as I’m clueless on this Hollywood stuff (but it’s a guilty pleasure)- why does his publicist and agent dropping him mean that something new is coming out? Couldn’t it just mean that the stuff they have already that everyone knows is bad enough to bring them embarrassment/shame?

    • CC2 says:

      It’s possible that what we know is all there is (abuse/rape and cannibalism), one of the survivors said she’s willing to pull out all the receipts if he takes legal action. So it maaay be possible that his people simply knew all the allegations are true and he’s not worth protecting.

      But the rumours are intriguing. Something may actually be up.

    • MaryContrary says:

      Actual crime-and something so heinous that they don’t want to cover. He’s never working again (or anytime soon) as a result-so they’re certainly not going to be making money off him.

  25. Justjj says:

    I just took a detour on Reddit about this, and it seems that he DM’d a woman his agent’s full name implicating him in affairs and such-for-wait for it-“free blackmail” (his words). I think it’s probably there’s an expose coming out with the texts we already know, coupled with him bringing management into his abusive DM’s. I really doubt it’s anything new.

    • Feebee says:

      This makes a lot of sense. It’s one thing the guy being creepy AF and doing all the stuff he’s done but bringing his agent in that closely would definitely be a crossed line for the agents.

  26. Coolitude says:

    I follow deuxmoi on Instagram and they say a big article is coming and will expose other famous actors. I have read somewhere too that they have still names to drop of actresses who have accepted some deal with weinstein to get roles and to avoid other actresses to get « their job ». I think that journalists are working on all that abuse in hollywood and deals since a long time. We will probably have other scandals in the coming months/ years. Some actors/ actresses must not sleep well

    I’m not going to join the speculating game because all possibilities seem horrifying. But I guess we can assume that Call me by your name 2 will be cancelled, right?

      “ But I guess we can assume that Call me by your name 2 will be cancelled, right?”

      Probably. But they could recast (other than his height, he’s replaceable by dozens of other actors) but if that happens it is a long way off since he is the elephant in the room when/if it does get made. VERY awkward.

      More interesting to watch right now is Death on the Nile. It’s a Fox movie (now Disney) that was heading for a theatrical (!) release pre-pandemic. He seems to have a decent-sized role. So do they shelve or try to pull off reshoots with a new actor? The director is Kenneth Branagh and he would be beyond pissed if they shelved it. Yet given the number of characters in these Poirot movies reshoots could get insanely expensive. Yikes.

      Also Taika Waititi shot a small passion project movie that he has a small part in. Again, maybe small enough to reshoot? But that’s tough for basically an indie movie.

      This may be what gets his WME agent in more trouble than anything. With everything that has happened in the past few years they pushed this client, studios cast him, and now it’s going to cost in ways they could not have imagined. There are some angry phone calls taking place.

      • Deering24 says:

        Mia4s—Yeah, it’s kinda a hard call which movie has a worse PR problem-+DOTN with Hammer, or West Side Story with Anson Elgort. I’m betting DOTN will just cut Hammer from revised trailers; release flick as is; and hope the ensemble/Christie franchise draw makes up for his presence.

      the only good thing to come out of this lmao

  28. Melisande says:

    Bye bye abusive privileged asshole! Please let the door hit you on the way out.

  29. A Guest says:

    Yup, something else is coming out and it’s going to be ugly,really ugly.

  30. Andrea says:

    I follow another one on IG not DM and they claim something big is coming in the next few days.

  31. M.A.F. says:

    He doesn’t make studios money. Depp does. That’s the difference.

  32. Jamie says:

    I don’t think it’ll involve children/underage people, but I do think it’ll involve cannibalism (consensual or not, maybe?) and maybe trafficking people in to act out his interests. I keep thinking about Eli Roth and how his inspiration for the movie Hostel was because he saw ads on the dark web where very wealthy people would indulge in such activities (I think its called ‘murder tourism’?).

  33. Tati says:

    Forgot to add the link for the blind item.

    • Yikes says:

      So she decided not to have the baby after finding out what he really is, or did he do something to her to make her lose the baby?

  34. MA says:

    I hate that this scandal is framed as sourced by “unverified messages” only. And shame on Variety for that disgusting thinly veiled defense they wrote of him. HIS ACTUAL EXES also came forward with their names and stories of abuse.
    His agency is dropping him right after they got that Variety piece written… something big is about to drop

    • Yikes says:

      They don’t want to get sued, I guess, so their legal department advised them to frame it that way.

      Courtney and Paige agree he crossed boundaries but it was House of Effie, House of Regret, and Milk and Honey Roses – these women haven’t yet spoken to journalists about their story in an official media piece – who alleged rape within a consensual encounter. House of Regret was very compelling; she said she met up with him for a one-off thing in London and then again in Hawaii I think it was, to get him to stop contacting and threatening to expose her to her husband. She alleged he raped her there when she wouldn’t agree to having sex with him again.

      I’m guessing the big story is he bought someone’s ribs and ate them while they were still recovering from the operation. Sadistic man.

  35. Em says:

    Yikes. Thanks for the scoop. I have only seen him in the Facebook movie, so not very familiar with his work. Not that it matters, this sounds like it might end up in prison time if it’s truly as serious as most are implying. Really hoping no children were hurt in any way, or anyone for that matter.

  36. Sandra says:

    At best, the agency dropped him in light of how everyone dropped Marilyn Manson after he was named as a sadistic abuser.
    I am really worried there’s actually a body buried somewhere though.
    I hope his ex and kids are somewhere very very safe and far away from him right now.

  37. C Dubya says:

    I don’t think this news bodes well for the continued watchability of the Lone Ranger…

  38. jells says:

    MAGAts are going to have a field day with this…

    • Lanie says:

      Yeah, but they need to clean up their own backyards. There’s more than a few pedos among them. Google puts them quickly during internet arguments.

    • tsk says:

      Armie himself is MAGA, isn’t he? Or at the very least he flirted with the idea but never publicly came out as one due to PR (see: Chris Pratt)

      • Genessee says:

        No. Armie is actually a huge fan of AOC and strongly supports the BLM movement. He wanted Trump OUT.

        His ex-wife, Elizabeth, is the MAGA/Trumper.

  39. TeeMajor says:

    He’s a REAL Patrick Bateman, like the one in American Psycho. Wow!

  40. Lonnie tinks says:

    I didn’t know who he was until a few months ago, when I saw him in a few interviews, and I got bad vibes from him, like he was an immature man child who has some antisocial tendencies.

  41. Lea says:

    I always thought something was a bit off with Armie Hammer. He is good looking but has absolutely no charisma whatsoever. It worked for his character in Call me by your name, which is one of my favorite movie, but in other movies he is extremely forgettable.
    The fact that his soon to be ex-wife has gone radio silent again on Instagram after coming back very recently indicates that something is probably going to drop very soon.
    I am thinking about his poor children.

  42. Justpassingby says:

    I’ve been reading about his family since last night, and oh my… it’s truly mid-blowing!

    I also noticed that this is young Armie:
    While this is today’s Armie:
    Notice how he had veneers shaped in order to get werewolf/vampire-like fangs?

  43. Jane Doe says:

    Please put a trigger warning on this article.

  44. tsk says:

    This is an industry build and maintained by amoral opportunists. This ain’t about morals.

    Armie Hammer is simply such a terrible actor and an utter void of charisma that the industry has decided he’s not worth the trouble. As simple as that.

    This is an industry that still employs predators and all around awful people. Armie just isn’t talented or charming enough to make it worth their time.

    PS: slap your damn self if you enjoyed Call Me by Your Kevin Spacey.

  45. tsk says:

    Why is nobody talking about the Charmies (Timothee Chalamet stans) harassing one of Hammer’s victims? House of Effie on Twitter, I mean.

    They’re saying she’s on a long con to hide the totally real & totally secret relationship between Armie Hammer and Chalamet lmao you can’t make this sh*t up!

    This is like the Benedict Cumberbatch/Martin Freeman conspiracies 2.0

  46. Juju says:

    I guess I’ve experienced too much bs from men that I don’t find the messages I read that outrageous. He’s a dude witha weird kink to me. That on top of being a dude that doesn’t have that much respect for women doesn’t go over so well. But trust me there are a lot of men out there like him, more than we want to believe.

  47. Erin says:

    guys I just saw he’s a Virgo, I think we figured it out

    • Mediawatcher says:

      Not just a regular Virgo (Virgos can be really amazing, humble people with a dry sense of humour and very considerate of others) but one with Gemini moon and other Gemini placements IIRC. That’s an awful moon placement to have IMO, on top of the fact it’s square to his sun.

  48. Cocococococo says:

    His wife is the MAGAt. Massive trump supporter. She was invited to the Priyanka/ Jonas wedding in India and raised a lot of eyebrows with racist and ignorant remarks

  49. Mediawatcher says:

    House of Effie has just posted in her IG stories that “what he and his friends have done is worse than anything I’ve posted and justice will be served.” Following that, a repost of what appears to be AH’s IG post of a BBQ he was building hashtaged #pureholidayhurtingpower, with a comment by someone asking, “Are you barbecuing humans?”

    I’m guessing the news/development is about some type of cannibalism, in a poorer country with poor legal protections.
