Armie Hammer has been dropped by WME. Sources inform THR that his individual press agent has likewise stepped away. Hammer losing his agency is the most recent development of a profession in freefall and comes amid debate over graphic messages he apparently sent several women over social networks.
Hammer’s string of exits came after the discovery of troubling messages – yet unproven – that were posted to an Instagram account run by a female who said she had an affair with Hammer. The messages include graphic descriptions of sexual fantasies that include abuse and even cannibalism. Hammer has remained mainly quiet on the industry maneuvers.
Hammer recently exited The Offer, a Paramount+ series about the making of The Godfather. Before that, he was required to resign from Lionsgate’s action romantic comedy, which would have paired him opposite Jennifer Lopez. (Josh Duhamel replaced him in the movie.)
“I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the spurious and vicious online attacks against me, I can not in excellent 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 in a declaration when leaving Shotgun. Numerous other women have because stated they experienced similar exchanges with the Call Me By Your Name star.
Hammer has rejected the allegations.
