Armie Hammer has revealed that the rape allegations against him left him contemplating taking his own life.

The 36-year-old was first accused of sexual assault back in 2021.

And since then, many other women have came forward to disclose Hammer's apparent sexual tendencies and fetishes, with one person claiming he wanted to 'eat her'.

Hammer first came under fire two years ago when multiple women alleged that he had sexually assaulted them.

In the Discovery+ docuseries House of Hammer, many women opened up about their alleged experience with the actor.

One of which was Courtney Vucekovich, who claimed that the 36-year-old was '100% a cannibal'.

And Julia Morrison, another ex-girlfriend, also revealed Hammer's alleged controlling sexual fantasies.

According to texts sent from the actor, he reportedly said: "I have a fantasy about having someone prove their love and devotion and tying them up in a public place at night and making their body free use."

The Call Me By Your Name actor has since responded to two of the women's claims, saying that 'the power dynamics were off'.

He also admitted he was 'one million percent' emotionally abusive to both of them.

Due to their age gap, Hammer acknowledged the 'imbalance of power' and reduced the claims to be being 'an asshole'.

Another woman, referred to as Effie, also came forward and publicly accused Hammer of rape.

She alleged that he raped her for 'four hours' on April 24, 2017.

She also added that Hammer allegedly abused her ‘mentally, emotionally and sexually’.

This led to the investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department into the matter, with Hammer denying the accusation.

The allegations ended in Hammer being dropped from his agency, as well as ongoing and upcoming projects.

Opening up about his life, he explained to Air Mail exactly where his sexual fetishes arose from.

Speaking about traumatic events from his teen years, the 36-year-old revealed that his BDSM sexual interests came from a place of abuse within his own life.

Hammer disclosed that his youth pastor sexually abused him when he was just 13 years old.

He said: "What that did for me was it introduced sexuality into my life in a way that it was completely out of my control."

"I was powerless in the situation," he added, "I had no agency in the situation."

Explaining that the abuse triggered an interest in sexual 'control', the actor continued: "Sexuality was introduced to me in a scary way where I had no control.

"My interests then went to: I want to have control in the situation, sexually."

Hammer said he "hoped that either I drowned, or was hit by a boat, or eaten by a shark."

Following the allegations, The Lone Ranger actor eventually ended up working in the Cayman Islands as a timeshare salesman.

Recounting how he felt during the time, Hammer told the news outlet: "I just walked out into the ocean and swam out as far as I could and hoped that either I drowned, or was hit by a boat, or eaten by a shark."

"Then," he added, "I realised that my kids were still on shore, and that I couldn’t do that to my kids."

Now in a rehabilitation facility, Hammer has commented on his journey with recovery.

Talking about the healing process, he referenced the importance of redemption and identified it as 'what’s missing in this cancel-culture, woke-mob business'.

Hammer has not yet been charged with any crime.
