Elizabeth Chambers: ‘I am shocked, heartbroken, and devastated’ by Armie Hammer’s scandal
Elizabeth Chambers is finally addressing the controversy surrounding her estranged husband Armie Hammer for the first time.
In an Instagram post of a scenic beach sunset posted Monday (Feb. 01, 2021), Chambers, 38, said in the caption that she’s focused on their children — daughter Harper, 6, and son Ford, 4 — amid the controversy surrounding Hammer’s alleged leaked online messages.
The messages, included cannibal fantasies that were allegedly from Hammer.
“For weeks, I’ve been trying to process everything that has transpired. I am shocked, heartbroken, and devastated. Heartbreak aside, I am listening, and will continue to listen and educate myself on these delicate matters. I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know,” Chambers wrote.
“I support any victim of assault or abuse and urge anyone who has experienced this pain to seek the help she or he needs to heal,” she continued. “At this time, I will not be commenting further on this matter.”
“My sole focus and attention will continue to be on our children, on my work and on healing during this incredibly difficult time,” she added. “Thank you for all of the love and support, and thank you in advance for your continued kindness, respect, and consideration for our children and me as we find ways to move forward.”
Chambers’ lengthy post comes less than a week after she broke her social media silence regarding Hammer’s scandal. After The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the actor’s Call Me by Your Name collaborators, actor Timothée Chalamet and director Luca Guadagnino, are teaming up for a new film about cannibalism, Bones & All, the mother of two had two words to sum up how that made her feel.
In an Instagram interaction captured by Comments By Celebs, Chambers responded to a post about Chalamet and Guadagnino’s movie news, writing, “No. Words.”
Hammer and Chambers announced their split in July, prior to the controversy.
