Armie Hammer accusers speak out in ‘House of Hammer’ trailer – NBC Chicago

Armie Hammer’s accusers talk about their experiences with the actor.

In a trailer for the upcoming three-part Discovery+ documentary series “House of Hammer,” Courtney Vucekovich and Julia Morrison discuss the “crazy” behavior Vucekovich says he experienced at the hands of the “Social Network” actor. (Armie previously insisted that all sexual encounters were entirely consensual.)

Vucekovich shares that she didn’t know what she was getting into when she started dating Hammer, who showered her with compliments. “At first, I felt like everything was perfect,” she says. “But then things changed. He pushes your limits a little at a time. You are his, completely.”

Vucekovich says she began to fear for her life after she began engaging in bondage during sex. She remembers the ‘Call Me By Your Name’ star tying her ankles, wrist and neck with ropes, telling the camera, “You’re completely immobilized. I just close my eyes until this end.”

Morrison says she was also enchanted by Hammer. That is, until he started texting her about his sexual desires. “I didn’t really digest this one,” she says in the trailer, before reading what she says is a text message from Hammer.

It reads: “‘I have a fantasy about someone proving their love and devotion and tying them up in a public place at night and using their body freely and seeing if they’ll fuck strangers to me.'”

She added that his sexual desires were “all he ever wanted to talk about”.

Hammer first addressed the allegations in January 2021, when he confirmed his exit from Jennifer Lopez’s “Shotgun Wedding.” “I do not respond to these bull—claims, but in light of the vicious and misleading online attacks against me, I cannot, in good conscience now, leave my children for four months to shoot a movie in the Republic Dominican woman,” Hammer told E! News in a statement at the time. “Lionsgate supports me in this area and I am grateful to them.”

He was later dropped by his talent agency WME and lost a starring role in Paramount+’s “The Offer.”

In March 2021, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to E! News that Hammer was the “primary suspect” in an investigation into allegations of rape and assault by an unnamed individual. However, when contacted on August 10, the department did not immediately provide an update on its investigation.

At the time, Hammer’s attorney, Andrew Brettler, denied any wrongdoing on his client’s behalf. “From day one, Mr. Hammer has maintained that all of his interactions,” Brettler said in March 2021, “have been completely consensual, discussed and agreed to in advance, and mutually engaged.”

Shortly after the LAPD announced their investigation, Hammer checked into a treatment center for drug, alcohol and sex issues. A source with knowledge of the situation later told E! News in February that Hammer, who has completed treatment, is “very committed to his sobriety and has been super consistent with it.”

Hammer continues to co-parent his two children with ex-wife Elizabeth Chambers, who filed for divorce in 2020.

The actor isn’t the only member of the Hammer family to have faced controversy. Hammer’s aunt, Casey Hammer, who said she was abused by her father, teased more revelations about her family in the trailer. She said: “I am about to reveal the dark and twisted secrets of the Hammer family.”
