More About Armie Hammer
Michael was born on September 8, 1955, in Los Angeles to his parents Julien Armand Hammer and Glenna Sue Ervin . He was notably the grandson of the founder of Occidental Petroleum, Armand Hammer who died in 1990. At the time of publication, Armie has yet to issue a public statement regarding his father’s passing. HollywoodLife has reached out to a representative for the Army for comment.
In 2020 Armie was quarantined with his late father along with his ex-wife, Elizabeth Chambers 40, in the Cayman Islands, according to an interview with British GQ . The disgraced actor had called the lockdown period a “very complex, intense situation” two years ago while speaking to the outlet.
“It was a very complicated, intense situation, with big personalities all crammed into a small space. It was tough, man. I had never done anything like this before in my life, so I didn’t have the equipment,” said the Army amid the COVID-19 lockdown. “It was just the thing that hit everyone. I don’t think I handled it very well.”
The actor, his father, along with other Hammer men in his family were the center of the Discovery+ documentary, House of Hammer, which was released on 2 September. The film takes a look at the allegations against the Army, which include claims of abuse and rape. Armie’s aunt, Casey Hammer , was also featured in the doc, in which she revealed some of the family’s dark history. “When all this about the Army came out, I was not shocked,” she said. “You don’t just wake up and become this dark, controlling, addict. The roots of this behavior are very deep.articles in progress
