Timothée Chalamet finally breaks silence on Armie Hammer sexual assault allegations

Timothée Chalamet has spoke about the allegations faced by co-star Armie Hammer.

Timothée Chalamet has finally spoken about allegations made against his Call Me by Your Name co-star Armie Hammer.

Hammer was accused of both rape and physically abusive behaviour by a woman whom he had had an on-and-off relationship with, identified only as 'Effie'.

Throughout the investigation, Armie, 36, denied all criminal allegations made against him.

Following the allegations, he was dropped by his publicist, as well as ongoing and upcoming projects, and his wife, Elizabeth Chambers, filed for a divorce after ten years of marriage.

Earlier this year, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office announced that Hammer would not face charges due to 'insufficient evidence' and the 'complexity of the relationship' he had with the accuser.

They also said that prosecutors had conducted an 'extremely thorough review' into the allegations, but that there was 'insufficient evidence' to bring charges against Hammer.

After it was confirmed he would not face any charges, Hammer posted a statement to his Instagram account, saying: "I am very grateful to the District Attorney for conducting a thorough investigation and coming to the conclusion that I have stood by this entire time, that no crime was committed.

"I look forward to beginning what will be a long, difficult process of putting my life back together now that my name is cleared."

And in a interview in February, Hammer said that the allegations had lead him to contemplate taking his own life.

Now his co-star, Chalamet, recently discussed the allegations while covering November's issue of GQ.

One of Hammer's ex-girlfriend's alleged that he had sexual fantasies surrounding cannibalism.

And at the time, Chalamet was getting ready to play a cannibal in Bones and All.

He told the publication: "I mean, what were the chances that we're developing this thing?

"It made me feel like: Now I've really got to do this… Because this is actually based on a book."

The Dune star was then asked how he'd processed the allegations himself, to which he replied: "I don’t know. These things end up getting clickbaited so intensely.

"Disorienting is a good word."

UNILAD has reached out to Armie Hammer’s attorney for comment.

Elsewhere in the interview, Chalamet also spoke about fame and the important matter of privacy.

He said: "You start going on Instagram, seeing people from your high school getting married, friends having kids, and you start going: This balls-to-the-wall thing, even at this amazing level I'm at that probably couldn't have gone better. "You still start wondering, How long till you have to change?"
