ARMIE HAMMER’S SEX COMMENTS SURFACE AMID DM SCANDAL AS HE EXITS FILM: Armie Hammer has said some strange things, some about his then-wife, Elizabeth Chambers. “I liked the grabbing of the neck and the hair and all that. But then you get married and your sexual appetites change,” he told Playboy in 2013, via PageSix. “And I mean that for the better — it’s not like I’m suffering in any way. But you can’t really pull your wife’s hair. It gets to a point where you say, ‘I respect you too much to do these things that I kind of want to do.'” These remarks have resurfaced following alleged DMs he sent through an account with House of Effie. In one, he said he’s “100 per cent a cannibal.” Hammer is exiting Shotgun Wedding amidst the uproar, which stars Jennifer Lopez. His part will be recast. In a statement sent to Deadline, the star of The Social Network and Nocturnal Animals says, “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.”
