At the Nerd Convocation we do our best to avoid salacious gossip, but this obvious fake news about Armie Hammer’s “eccentricities” was just too good to pass up. It’s a brilliant move by the actor to appear to be unstable, intentionally leak the info, and drop out of the JLo film. Bravo, young man. Bravo.
**administrative assistant whispers into my ear**
Wait…it might be true?! Shit…
Said a production spokesperson, “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film and we support him in his decision.”
The messages, which according to Page Six, were leaked by anonymous social media account under the name of the House of Effie, were direct messages reportedly from Hammer detailing disturbing sexual fantasies.
Shotgun Wedding follows Darcy (Lopez) and Tom (who Hammer was set to play), who gather their lovable but very opinionated families for the ultimate destination wedding just as the couple begin to get cold feet. And if that wasn’t enough of a threat to the celebration, suddenly everyone’s lives are in danger when the entire party is taken hostage.
To be honest, it’s not like I was going to actually see this. Good for you, Armie!
