Chambers revealed, “I did not plan on seeing it, but … watched it with my support system around me. It was obviously heartbreaking on so many levels and very painful. But at the same time, it exists.”

‘House of Hammer’ was described as a special that “chronicles the deeply troubling accusations leveled against critically acclaimed actor Armie Hammer and the dark, twisted legacy of the Hammer dynasty.”
Hammer’s estranged wife added that she “definitely was surprised” by the documentary, but “that’s to be expected.” She also added that she would not allow her kids to watch the series as “it’s not appropriate for them at this time.”
Elizabeth Chambers filed for divorce from Armie Hammer in July 2020 citing, “irreconcilable differences.”
In January 2021, several women accused the actor of sending sexual messages to them which involved cannibalism and BDSM.
Another woman has accused Armie of rape, which the actor has denied. Ever since the accusations came to light, Armie has been dropped out of prominent film roles and is reportedly now working at a resort in the Cayman Islands, close to where his ex-wife and his children live.
