The Armie Hammer cannibal scandal keeps getting weirder and weirder.
Yesterday, we reported that unverified Instagram DMs by Call Me By Your Name star Armie Hammer alleged that he was “100% a cannibal” and he “wanted to drink your blood.”
In another message he asked a partner if he could “cut off one of your toes and keep it with me in my pocket so I always had a piece of you in my possession.”
In the wake of those allegations, he stepped away from his role in a movie with J-Lo and sort of, kind of, vaguely denied them in a statement, saying
I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic. Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”
Today, however, he ex Courtney Vucekovich tells Page Six that their romance was like dating a wannabe Hannibal Lecter — with his idea of pillow talk being telling her which of her body parts he’d like to roast and devour.
“He said to me he wants to break my rib and barbecue and eat it,” app founder Courtney Vucekovich exclusively told Page Six.
“‘F–k that was weird,’ but you never think about it again,” she said of overlooking the odd behavior at the time. “He says, ‘I want to take a bite out of you.’ If I had a little cut on my hand, he’d like suck it or lick it. That’s about as weird as we got.”
“He likes the idea of skin in his teeth,” she claims.
Vucekovich, who spoke following a divorce filing by Hammer’s estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers, tells Page Six that her relationship with Hammer actor was not only weird and gross but also emotionally abusive.
“He enters your life in such a big way. He’s such a captivating person. He has such a presence and he’s aware of that and he uses it in such a way that most women would think, ‘Oh my gosh, this is amazing,’ but especially young women, that’s kind of the scary part — how good he is at active manipulation and making you feel like he’s never felt this way about anybody,” Vucekovich, 30, told us.
