American actor Armie Hammer has found himself in a controversy after a string of shocking and sexually charged direct messages allegedly written by him began circulating online last weekend.

In those messages, the 34-year-old went into detail his sexual fantasies, which include rape and cannibalism; the actor allegedly DM-ed a woman on Instagram that he is "100% a cannibal" and desired to "drink your blood".

In light of the controversy, Hammer has decided to quit his role in the upcoming film, Shotgun Wedding, opposite Jennifer Lopez.

He said the decision was made due to "vicious and spurious online attacks" against him.

"I'm not responding to these bulls*** claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic," Hammer said.

Hammer and his wife of 10 years Elizabeth Chambers announced their separation in July 2020. The couple have two children.

The actor, who starred in Call Me By Your Name and Social Network, has not been shy to talk about his personal life in the past. In 2013, he raised eyebrows in an interview which he described himself as a "dominant lover".

“I liked the grabbing of the neck and the hair and all that. But then you get married and your sexual appetites change. And I mean that for the better – it’s not like I’m suffering in any way. But you can’t really pull your wife’s hair, ” he told Playboy in the 2013 interview.
