Armie Hammer says sexual abuse at 13 sparked his toxic sexual behavior

Armie Hammer, 36, gave a rare interview in which, for the first time, he told his side of the series of accusations of sexual violence (including a fetish for cannibalism) that made his career, until then on the rise in Hollywood, go downhill . To the Air Mail digital bulletin, the actor stated that he thought about committing suicide after the allegations surfaced and revealed that he was sexually abused in childhood.

He denies committing any crime, but admits to being toxic to women he met online. According to him, he believes that his conduct had its origin in the sexual abuse he suffered when he was 13 years old. The act would have been practiced by a pastor.

“What it did for me was introduce sexuality into my life in a way that was completely out of my control,” he said. “I was powerless in that situation. I had no management in the situation. Sexuality was presented to me in a frightening way where I had no control. My interests then were: I want to be in control of the situation, sexually speaking.”

Hammer said that, previously, he had only spoken about sexual abuse to just two people – Air Mail says it confirmed the report with his godmother. The multiple reports of sexual violence against him emerged in 2021 and caused him to be released from several projects. The actor eventually moved to the Cayman Islands, where he checked himself into a clinic and was later seen working as a salesman.

In the interview, he also revealed that he had considered the possibility of taking his own life after the accusations came to light. “I just went into the ocean, swam as far as I could and waited to drown or get hit by a boat or eaten by a shark,” he said. “That’s when I realized that my children [do casamento com Elizabeth Chambers, encerrado pouco depois das denúncias] were on the beach and that I couldn’t do this to them.”

The actor also admitted that he was “a million percent” emotionally abusive to the accusers, but denies the rape allegations. “I’m here to own up to my mistakes, take responsibility for the fact that I was an asshole, that I was selfish, that I used people to make myself feel better, and when I was done, I moved on,” he said.

“I am now a healthier, happier and more balanced person,” he continued. “I’m able to be there for my kids in a way that I’ve never been… I’m so grateful for my life, my recovery and everything else. I wouldn’t go back and undo everything that happened to me.”

He also confirmed that Robert Downey Jr. supported him when he was at rock bottom and said he is now working as a “sober companion” in a rehabilitation program, helping a colleague stay away from his addiction. “It seems that my recovery has taken me from being the one who needs help getting sober to being able to help others,” he said.
