Who could have seen this one coming? Armie Hammer has exited another upcoming project, after weeks of the entire world reading his (alleged) DMs to women about his hardcore rape and cannibalism fantasies.
Hammer was due to star in The Offer, an upcoming series that tells the behind-the-scenes story of stone-cold 1972 classic The Godfather. Now, Paramount Plus is looking for someone else to star as producer Al Ruddy, according to Variety.
Wow. I wonder what the reason will be this time?
Two weeks ago, Hammer ‘exited’ Shotgun Wedding, the action comedy he was due to star in opposite J. Lo. He claimed it was because these “bullshit” allegations (his words, not ours) meant he shouldn’t leave his kids alone. A little birdie told gossip Instagram account Deuxmoi that it was because he was literally uninsurable. You can believe what you will.
Armie Hammer’s rapidly shrinking IMDb page aside, the allegations against him continue to mount.
We’ve gone from salacious screenshots showing he was allegedly involved in multiple affairs, to accusations of assault, gaslighting, and literally carving his initials into a woman’s skin.
“He decided he wanted to brand me as his property and carve his name on my body,” model Paige Lorenze told the Daily Mail.
“He tried to rationalise it as his gesture of his commitment to us being together for the long term.”
Another ex-girlfriend, Courtney Vucekovich, told Page Six the actor wanted to break her rib, barbecue it, and eat it while she watched.
She also provided some insight as to how he allegedly manipulated women.
“He enters your life in such a big way,” she said.
“He’s such a captivating person. He has such a presence and he’s aware of that and he uses it in such a way that most women would think, ‘Oh my gosh, this is amazing,’ but especially young women, that’s kind of the scary part — how good he is at active manipulation and making you feel like he’s never felt this way about anybody.”
Hammer has yet to comment on his exit from The Offer, but when he exited Shotgun Wedding, he provided his only statement on the ongoing scandal.
“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,” he said at the time.
Wonder how long it’ll take for him to ‘exit’ the upcoming The Billion Dollar Spy, too?
