Armie Hammer has resurfaced in Los Angeles more than a year after his self-imposed exile.
The “Call Me by Your Name” star was photographed on Monday standing casually outside the Great White restaurant in Venice, California, wearing rolled up gray pants, a graphic tee and flip flops. He held a face mask in one hand and a glass bottle of Pellegrino in the other.
It will be Hammer’s first appearance on US soil since moving to the Cayman Islands following his “cannibal” scandal. He has been in LA for a few weeks with estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers and their two children, Harper, 7, and Ford, 5, at Robert Downey Jr.’s home.
Vanity Fair reported last week that the 57-year-old ‘Avengers’ star has financially supported 35-year-old Hammer during his scandal — in which he also accused of raping a woman known as Effie — and even held the bill for his six. months paid. stay in a rehabilitation center in Florida.
The “Death on the Nile” star and his family moved to the City of Angels to escape the media spotlight after it was revealed that he had been selling timeshares in the Cayman Islands.
“I cannot confirm or deny the report because Armie did not address it,” Hammer’s lawyer said in a statement to Vidak For Congress last Friday. “I just find it s–tty that when he sells timeshares, the media puts him to shame because he has a ‘normal job’.”
Hammer, who held a so-called “regular” job, seemed odd to many, considering he’s the great-grandson of oil tycoon Armand Hammer, but it turns out he’s been “cut off” from the family fortune.
“His father doesn’t want to help him anymore, and he’s cut off, so he has to go to work,” a source told People of the disgraced actor, who has denied the allegations against him.
