Armie Hammer’s estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers said the former couple are in a “really great place” after several women accused the actor of sexual misconduct.
The television host, who split from the “Call Me By Your Name” star in July 2020 after a decade of marriage, has kept her silence almost two years after the various controversies started surrounding the father of their two children, 7-year-old Harper. broke. and 5-year-old Ford.
“Our divorce is not final. But we are in a really good place. We talk all the time. We are completely and utterly committed to our children, and to our children being together as much as possible in a non-romantic way,” she told E! News in an exclusive interview published Wednesday. Children need their mothers; children need their fathers. So there is nothing we will not do.”
Hammer’s career went into a tailspin after several women said they received disturbing text messages from the actor, sharing screenshots that detailed violent sexual fantasies related to rape and cannibalism. The infamous star has since been accused of rape by a woman with whom he was in a relationship. Hammer has strongly denied the abuse claims and sought treatment for drug, alcohol and sexual issues.
Chambers, who now lives in the Cayman Islands and has moved into a new “committed relationship” with wellness therapist Ricardas Kazinek, said the “oxygen mask theory” helped him process recent events.
“You can’t really take care of someone unless you’re taken care of,” she said, citing emergency instructions from airlines to “secure your own mask before helping others.” Chambers also shared that Hammer has prioritized his “healing” in the meantime.
“I’m here to support that process. It’s going to make him the best dad he can be. … What matters is that he’s the best father to our kids.” ,” He continued. “Obviously he processes everything he’s dealing with personally — and that’s his own journey now.”
The allegations against the “Social Network” star and his sordid family history are at the center of the new documentary “House of Hammer,” which premiered earlier this month and looks at the “dark, twisted legacy” of his father Michael. As well as grandfather Julian and great-grandfather Armand.
Chambers revealed that she declined to appear on the series, but has watched it, adding that the show was “clearly heartbreaking on so many levels” and “so painful” to watch.
“The past is the past and all we can do is take it as a moment to learn and listen, and hopefully process and heal,” she said.
She clarified, “I consider myself a feminist and stand in solidarity with anyone who is a victim of any kind.” “I’m not here to be like, ‘My life is wonderful,’ because it’s been a hell of a long time.”
Hammer himself has yet to comment publicly on the documentary, but a source from Entertainment Tonight said the actor was “trying to prepare himself as much as he can” whatever the revelations reveal.
By July, the actor was working at a hotel resort in the Cayman Islands, selling timeshares to support his children and be close to them.
