Armie Hammer has been in the headlines since allegations of his wild partying ways and ‘cannibalistic’ kinks emerged after a lurid text message leak earlier this month.
And now a 2017 clip of the actor hinting he was let go from Gossip Girl has emerged, piquing the eyebrows of many a fan.
Armie, who played the role of Gabriel on season two, suggested he got canned, calling the shoots ‘tough’ after Andy Cohen asked who was the biggest diva on set during a special episode of Watch What Happens Live with an in-person audience.
After wringing his hands and attempting to pass, he said: ‘Let me just say that was a tough show to film and I didn’t end up actually filming all the episodes I was supposed to because it was so tough.’
Canned? Armie Hammer seemed to suggest he was let go from Gossip Girl in a recently resurfaced 2017 interview where he called the shoot ‘tough’ and revealed he didn’t film ‘all the episodes’ he was scripted for
‘Oh really? So you were like, “Get me out of this?”‘ Andy inquired.
‘It was also like “Get him out of here,”‘ Armie dished, making it seen like he was fired.
He was then asked who his love interest was, telling Andy it was Blake Lively’s character Serena.
‘It sounds like she was the problem,’ fellow guest Chelsea Handler tried to suggest.
‘No, no, that’s not what I’m saying,’ a now beet-red Armie said with a knowing smile.
This comes after ex girlfriend Paige Lorenze shared shocking revelations about the star’s taste for over-the-top BDSM sex and drugs.

Lorenze, 22, opened up about her ‘deeply traumatic’ four-month relationship with Hammer last week, describing how it left her emotionally and physically scarred.
The former professional skier-turned-Instagram model provided DailyMailTV with an exclusive image of a sickening scar just millimeters away from her private parts that was left when Hammer allegedly carved his first initial ‘A’ into her skin during a kinky sex game.
She recently revealed that Hammer allegedly learned how to tie women up by practicing on mannequins he stored in the basement of the $5.8 million home he shared with his estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers and their two young children in Los Angeles.
‘He told me that he had mannequins in his basement in his family home that Elizabeth and him were living at to practice rope tying on,’ Lorenze told The Sun.
‘It creeped me out, honestly. It was really strange. I’d never even heard of anything like that before.’

Receipts: Lorenze’s story about the basement mannequins was supported by photos posted online by another alleged former lover, known on Instagram as Nastya D. Screenshots of messages (above) purportedly sent to Nastya D by Hammer showed a mannequin wrapped in red rope with what he called a ‘leash’ coming out of the back
Lorenze also claimed that Hammer talked about wanting to strangle his dog, a Welsh Terrier named Archie.
‘He would get angry at his dog and say like: “I’m going to kill this dog, I would have strangled him if you weren’t here,”‘ she said, noting that she does not believe he ever hurt the animal.

A partially blurred message accompanying the photos read: ‘I was thinking about how perfect your [expletive] are and I tried to come up with a chest harness that had a handle in the middle of your perfect [expletive]… oh, and a [expletive] knot.’

Lorenze said Hammer often tied her up, hit her with paddles and planned out ‘high protocol nights’ of painful sexual moves, which often left her covered in bruises.
She said her lover – 12 years her senior – was ‘sweet and kind’ but ‘manipulative’.
‘I think he definitely loved it that I was younger. He always had me wear lingerie and tied me up,’ she said.
‘I just kind of agreed to it and let it happen, I was just trying to please him.
‘He would say things like: “I want to bite a piece of your skin off and eat it,” he would bite me so hard. Sometimes it would basically break skin.’
A lawyer for Hammer has categorically denied the allegations against him, calling them ‘patently untrue’.
But Lorenze says she wanted to make her experiences known to help protect other women.
‘I’m not trying to kink shame at all,’ Lorenze said. ‘But I think that dangerous men [sometimes] use this as like a smoke screen for abusing and hurting women for their own sexual pleasure.
‘I am holding him accountable and I think he knows that he’s caused a lot of women pain, even if he doesn’t want to admit it right now. And there is power in numbers.’
‘This [situation] is terrible, it’s so unfair on his children and I think everyone is just so disgusted and shocked.’

Painful: The former professional skier-turned-Instagram model provided DailyMailTV with an exclusive image of a sickening scar just millimetres away from her private parts that was left when Hammer allegedly carved his first initial ‘A’ into her skin during a kinky sex game
In her interview with DailyMailTV, Lorenze exposed Hammer as an out-of-control narcissistic sexual deviant and said his wild fantasies and BDSM-fueled desires could ‘seriously injure another woman.’
She described how Hammer – who has claimed he’s ‘100% a cannibal’ in vile Instagram messages to other women – licked blood from the wound he left when he allegedly carved his initial into her.
The blond beauty said Hammer was fixated on biting her body, begging that she allow him to take lumps of flesh from her arm, before consuming them.
Hammer, who is currently embroiled in a bitter divorce and custody battle with his wife Chambers, also urged his lover Lorenze to participate in ‘role play’ sex, she said.
Even on their first night of intimacy, Lorenze claimed Hammer insisted: ‘You can either call me daddy or sir.’
Lorenze described their time together in Los Angeles as ‘like a real life 50 Shades Of Grey without the love’.
Family: Even with his family at Thanksgiving, Hammer took along his leather bound BDSM case for kinky sex games. In a photo shared exclusively with DailyMailTV Hammer is seen posing with Lorenze and his mother Dru Ann during the holidays, which they celebrated in Dallas, Texas

Lorenze told DailyMailTV: ‘I want Armie to address his demons, see the pain and trauma that he has caused me and other women. But any man who is fantasizing about crushing bones, eating them, having sex with female limp bodies is a danger to all women’
Laying out more of his sick fantasies, Hammer begged the Instagram model to have her ribs removed, so that he could barbecue them.

In another exclusive photo the former couple are seen shirtless on a moped in the desert, Hammer smiling and wearing a cowboy hat.
In a statement to DailyMail.com, Hammer’s lawyer said: ‘These assertions about Mr. Hammer are patently untrue. Any interactions with this person, or any partner of his, were completely consensual in that they were fully discussed, agreed upon, and mutually participatory.’
Bruised: Lorenze’s body appeared to be covered in bruises during the few months she was dating Hammer. Pictured: The model appears to have a discolored mark on her chest in an Instagram picture posted in late October
Ouch: Lorenze said ‘I had bad bruises all over me when we were together. I was left with marks from him using a paddle. I was his own real life Christian Grey fantasy. There were teeth marks and bite marks all over me’
She added: ‘He was completely obsessed with biting me. He told me ‘be proud as they were just love bites.” Once he said, ”If you did not tell me to stop I would eat a piece out of you.” And he was serious too. It was like he actually wanted to eat my flesh away’
Up until 2020 Hammer was regarded as one of the most suave, handsome and brightest stars and family men in Hollywood.
But behind closed doors, Lorenze saw a ‘broken’ side of the actor, famous for films like The Lone Ranger, Social Network and Call Me By Your Name.
‘Armie is deeply insecure. He really opened up at times about his marriage break-up and family issues,’ she said.
‘He would cry in my arms, about how he loved his kids and felt Elizabeth was a great mother. But then would villainize his wife at other times.
‘And he also talked about all the women that he had been with, which made me think he cheated all the time. There are issues too with his parents, which haunt him. I didn’t ask questions, I just listened, because I felt we had an instant trust.
‘Now I think a lot of it was an act, attention seeking and part of his mind games. It was an Oscar winning performance.’
Despite issues with his family Hammer still took Lorenze to visit his mother Dru Ann for Thanksgiving in Dallas.

Out of control: Lorenze claims the actor is a heavy drinker and enjoyed taking ‘hallucinogens’ as well as party substances, during their time together.

Lorenze says that ‘money problems’ meant the pair drove 1400 miles from LA to Dallas for the family gathering.
‘It was a rare moment when I felt like we were in a normal relationship, because he felt we were serious enough to meet his family,’ she recalls.
‘I immediately bonded with his mom, who was super kind and considerate. Even around them Armie would call me his ‘little pet’.’
But Lorenze sensed the tension between mother and son.
‘He told me that his mother poured oil on his head one night speaking in tongues, claiming he had demons inside of him.
‘That seemed weird, but she seemed a sweet traditional and Christian woman. But I feel now she knew he had a dark side.’
Hammer even took his BDSM leather case on the trip, but Lorenze ‘refused to have sex out of respect to his mom’.
Just days after returning home, in early December, Lorenze, still recovering from his branding, decided to call off their romance.

Ex: While he decried the ‘bulls**t claims’ made against him, he has yet to comment further after two of his former girlfriends spoke out about their ‘traumatizing’ flings with Hammer, as his estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers is in ‘complete shock’ and ‘sickened’ over the allegations
‘It was too much. I felt sick to my stomach, insecure and no longer attracted to him – and he was getting stranger,’ she said.
‘I texted him that morning to say I do not think we can see each other anymore.
‘Perhaps I hoped he would change or try to make things right, but instead he replied: ‘okay I understand’.
‘He left soon after to see his family in the Cayman Islands for Christmas, but told me he did not want to go as he was lonely and sad.
‘It will take me a long time to get over this. It still feels like a fever dream and not real.’
Hammer’s romance came as he and ex wife Elizabeth Chambers attempted to work out joint custody of their children and requested that she return to the US to arrange a custody schedule.
In September, the actor told British GQ his separation from Chambers, whom he married in 2010, was a ‘seriously seismic event’.
‘I don’t think you’ll find anyone in the world who would ever say what I’m going through is an easy thing to go through,’ he said.
Hammer said when he and Chambers discussed their separation, they kept their focus on what was best for their kids.
Lorenze added: ‘Elizabeth is a really smart loving caring person and he is doing all of this with no regard to his family,
”We have been in touch. Elizabeth has been nothing but supportive of me and she wants me to get my truth out. I cannot thank her enough.
‘I feel this is so hard for her, she has been through hell with him.’
She concluded: ‘People who know Armie say he already has three new ‘pets’, one aged 19.
‘I am worried for her safety. After what happened to me, I cannot imagine what she is going through, even though she may not realize the physical and mental trauma.’
Lorenze plans to use her platform to support women, who are victims in abusive relationships.
