Armie Hammer Breaks Silence on Rape and Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Another ex, Paige Lorenze, who did not participate in the docuseries, told E! News in 2021 that the actor “slowly started easing her into BDSM-related activities in the bedroom,” adding that the acts were consensual.
In his interview with Air Mail, while denying any criminal wrongdoing, Hammer acknowledged “one million percent” that he was emotionally abusive to his accusers and admitted there was an “imbalance of power” regarding his past relationships with Vucekovich and Lorenze, noting that they were a decade younger than him and that he was a “successful actor at the time” they were involved.
The sexual misconduct allegations, which came months following the actor’s 2020 split from wife Elisabeth Chambers, took a personal toll on Hammer. He told Airmail that in February 2021, a month after the first accusations went viral, he attempted suicide while quarantining in the Cayman Islands.
“I just walked out into the ocean and swam out as far as I could and hoped that either I drowned, or was hit by a boat, or eaten by a shark,” he said. “Then I realized that my kids were still on shore, and that I couldn’t do that to my kids.”
