Followers around the globe had been shocked and appalled this week when alleged messages despatched by Armie Hammer implied that the actor not solely has a starvation for meaty movie elements — but additionally meaty human elements.
“I need to eat you. I’m 100% a cannibal,” read an alleged message from Hammer leaked by an anonymous woman on Instagram. One other reportedly stated that he “needed to chop off one in all your toes and preserve it with me in my pocket so I all the time had a bit of you in my possession.” An ex-girlfriend even claimed to Page Six that he stated: “He needs to interrupt my rib and barbecue and eat it.”
Love is within the air, all over the place I go searching!
However these of us who’ve watched Hammer hammer away on-screen for years shrugged on the demented DMs. Exterior of “Automobiles three” and dreck like “Mirror Mirror,” the 34-year-old actor has all the time gravitated to creepy characters.
Maybe someday, he’ll even get to play his dream function: Hannibal Lecter.
Till then, listed here are a few of the Hammer’s movie performances that raised freak flags.
“The Social Community”
The actor’s largest early function was, actually, two roles: Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, snobby Harvard twins in David Fincher’s 2010 drama about Fb founder Mark Zuckerberg.
Hammer turned the brothers into the NPR Hosts of the Corn. Colorless, they’d effete mannerisms, soft-handed athleticism and reeked of belief funds. Not solely did the chilly efficiency foreshadow this previous week’s scandal — so did the truth that Fincher superimposed Hammer’s head onto one other actor’s physique. Digital dismemberment.
“Name Me By Your Title”
Timothée Chalamet is fortunate he escaped with all his limbs!
The Oscar-winning 2017 drama had loads of risqué intercourse scenes that outraged some circles due to Oliver (Hammer) and Elio’s (Chalamet) perceived age distinction. Though the characters’ ages — 17 and 24 in freewheeling 1983 Italy — weren’t too objectionable on the floor, Hammer, at 29, positively regarded a lot older than his co-star, who was a fresh-faced 20.
That disparity was most notable through the infamous bedroom peach scene, which I gained’t describe intimately for worry of shedding my medical health insurance. Viewers’ jaws dropped. However not as a lot as they did after they learn this alleged DM: “Will you come and be my property until you die?”
A younger lady (Lily James) meets a dashing gentleman (Hammer) — solely to find that he has a turbulent, sinister facet in Netflix’s “Rebecca.” Certainly, the function of Maxim de Winter was possible a few of Hammer’s best prep work ever for a movie.
Streaming on Netflix
In Clint Eastwood’s 2011 biopic, Hammer performed Clyde Tolson, J. Edgar Hoover’s No. 2 on the FBI. Over drinks one night time, Tolson is thrown right into a violent rage when he finds out Hoover (Leonardo DiCaprio) has been getting “bodily” with a girl.
“Is that what I’m to you? Incompletion!” Hammer shouts at DiCaprio, attacking each “t” prefer it’s speech class, and smashes a glass on the ground. “Hearth me!” The shoeless man walks throughout the damaged shards, fights a bruised and bloodied Leo to the bottom after which kisses him.
The plot of Hammer’s horror flick is hard to explain, so listed here are a number of highlights:
His bartender character Will hallucinates that a cockroach is crawling out of a lower in his armpit. In one other scene, he believes his telephone has became a cockroach and chucks it out of the window.
To not be out-grossed, his pal Garrett (Alexander Biglane) vomits a pile of bloody tooth.
Towards the top of the film, Will is given a “current” wrapped in human flesh.
OK, now I’m simply speaking soiled.
