So you probably heard about the text exchange supposedly between Armie Hammer and some, for now, mysterious woman. In the texts he talks about being “100% Cannibal” and feeling free now that he’s finally come clean.
The disturbing DM’s included Armie allegedly writing, “You just live to obey and by my slave. I will own you. That’s my soul. My brain. My spirit. My body. Would you come and be my property till you die?”
I was amused by a resurfaced conversation he had with Playboy in 2013 where he admitted to getting a thrill from putting his hands on a woman’s neck and pulling her hair. Now, understand, there’s nothing wrong with that, as long as both parties consent. But he went on to say he doesn’t do that to his wife because he respects her and that’s where I get the ick. Just know if you slept with Armie, he didn’t respect you.
So now we come to last night when Armie reached out to Deadline.com to give a statement of sorts.
He is dropping out of filming the upcoming JLo movie “Shotgun Wedding”.
“I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic. Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”
A rep for the film said, “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film and we support him in his decision.”
There will no doubt be a lot more Armie talk over the coming months and considering the hors d’oeuvres were cannibalism, I’m can’t wait to see what the main course is.
