Armie Hammer’s ex-wife, Elizabeth Chambers, said in a recent interview she was shocked to hear of the rape and cannibalism allegations brought against her ex-husband.
Chambers said her marriage to Hammer didn’t exhibit any of the behaviors other women have accused him of, according to an interview with Elle published Feb. 8. She also said she did not hear anything about the allegations until 2021, after she had filed for divorce.
“I was learning things as the public was,” Chambers said. “I was like, ‘There are no words. What the fuck?’”
#ElizabethChambers is ready to talk about it. In 2020, her decade-long marriage to actor #ArmieHammer ended and, well, let’s just say it, six months later he was called out for having cannibalistic fetishes, among a host of other allegations. https://t.co/Y707gvh7Mj

Chambers filed for divorce from Hammer in 2020, but the divorce is not yet finalized, according to Elle. Hammer was accused of sexual assault and cannibalistic behavior by numerous women in 2021. Courtney Vucekovich, Paige Lorenze and a woman who goes by “@houseofeffie” claimed to have dated Hammer and came forward with various allegations against the disgraced actor, according to Vulture.
Hammer denied the rape allegations in a recent interview, but admitted to being “emotionally abusive” and to being responsible for orchestrating “consensual non-consent scenes” that mimic forced sex scenes with his partners, according to TooFab. No official charges have been filed against him. (RELATED: ‘Who Knew Cannibalism Was So Popular?’: Dakota Johnson Cracks Jokes At Armie Hammer’s Expense)
Chambers declined to comment on her sex life with Hammer during the interview, but she did say “boundaries are everything” in a relationship, according to Elle. She said their relationship began to fall apart when they retreated to the Cayman Islands during the COVID-19 lockdown period.
“He was the worst,” she told Elle. Her heart was “broken in nine million pieces” when Hammer left her and their children in the Cayman Islands and went back to California on his own, according to the magazine.
“You can give, you can love, you can be there for someone, but you also need to hold people accountable for their actions,” Chambers continued.
“The dissolution of my family was literally my biggest fear of my whole life,” she added. “You’re building something, right? You’re weaving a beautiful tapestry, and the last thing you want is for a knife to come and rip the tapestry in half.”
