Armie Hammer is an American actor who began his acting career with guest appearances in several television series. Hammer’s first leading role was as Billy Graham in the 2008 film Billy: The Early Years. Earlier this month, Armie Hammer publicly responded to alleged DMs that depicted sexually aggressive and potentially disturbing conversations. He also dropped out of a film with Jennifer Lopez, and since then, ex-girlfriend Paige Lorenze reportedly shared disturbing details of a relationship the actor had with her.

The actor once hinted that he was fired from the popular teen show Gossip Girl in which Armie played Blake Lively’s love interest who turned out to be a con man. During a 2017 interview on Watch What Happens Live, a fan asked Hammer to name the biggest diva on set, to which he declined to answer the question, but did open up about his experience playing Gabriel on Season 2 of the CW teen drama.

“Let me just say that was a tough show to film, and I didn’t end up actually filming all the episodes I was supposed to because it was so tough,” he said of the show, which ran from 2007 to 2012. “Oh really? So you were like, ‘Get me out of this?’” host Andy Cohen asked. “It was also like, ‘Get him out of here,’” Hammer revealed, hinting that he may have been fired. When Chelsea Handler — a guest alongside Hammer on “WWHL” — then commented, “It sounds like [Lively] was the problem,” a clearly embarrassed Hammer responded, “No, no, that’s not what I’m saying.”

This interview is going viral on the internet amidst a myriad of accusations from ex-girlfriends Courtney Vucekovich, Paige Lorenze and many more, plus a controversy around Armie’s NSFW videos, lifestyle, and DMs describing gruesome “cannibal” fantasies.
