Unable to avoid his fair share of headlines these days is actor and vampire Armie Hammer. From toe sucking scandals to wild cannibalistic Instagram messages, we’re curious as to how these odd reports are affecting Armie Hammer and his net worth.
Armie Hammer, who just recently dropped out of the project Shotgun Wedding starring Jennifer Lopez, seems to be at the center of many scandals these days, and while he still seems to be a prominent name within Hollywood casting circles, we’re wondering if all these troubling stories & rumors are going to catch up with him.
Possibly the most horrifying rumor to come from the Armie Hammer ring-of-fire is that he’s a suspect in California’s Wonder Valley death investigation. Luckily, cops have already shut this rumor down, claiming that Hammer is not a suspect and that there are no plans to investigate him. Still, even putting his name out there could be damaging to Armie Hammer and his net worth. Speaking of . . . what is Armie Hammer’s net worth?
It takes an Armie
Born on August 28th, 1986, in Santa Monica, California, Armand Douglas Hammer grew up in the industry which he’d find so much future success in, as his father owned a film & television production company, as well as a publishing company. His mom, on the other hand, was a bank loan officer, while his grandfather was an oil tycoon.
During his childhood, Armie Hammer and his family spent some time living in the Cayman Islands before deciding to move back to Los Angeles. Hammer, who dropped out of the Los Angeles Baptist High School in the eleventh grade to pursue acting, eventually took some college courses at UCLA.
So where are the smarts then, Armie?
Armie hits the screen
Hammer kicked off his acting career with a series of small guest appearances on some popular TV titles, such as Veronica Mars, Arrested Development, Gossip Girl, and Desperate Housewives, all leading to a minor role in the 2006 Tim McGraw film, Flicka.
However, his big break first came when director George Miller (Mad Max) handpicked the young star to play the coveted role of Bruce Wayne, or Batman, in his upcoming Justice League project. Regrettably for Hammer, this project never came to fruition due to the 2007 writer’s strike.
Luckily, Armie was given a second chance at another breakout role . . . or should we say two? You all know where this is going: 2010’s The Social Network, directed by David Fincher. Armie Hammer, with the help of a body double, played the dual role of the Winklevoss twins, a pair of Harvard twins who sued Mark Zuckerberg for “stealing” their idea for the popular social media outlet, Facebook.
Star on the rise
Armie Hammer would ride his rising star to multiple marquee roles, which surely boosted his net worth.
Hammer went on to star in some pretty big titles after the success of The Social Network, including J. Edgar with Leonardo DiCaprio, The Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. with Henry Cavill, and Call Me By Your Name with Timothee Chalamet.
However, while some of these performances & films landed with audiences, most struggled to garner any positive response or large box office numbers, which saw Armie Hammer move past his apex in Hollywood. Equally, some controversies surrounding the actor also negatively affected his squeaky clean brand.
Hammering in the controversies
In 2021, multiple women came forward in order to share their past experiences with the actor, in which some detailed the abuse they experienced. One 2020 girlfriend talked about how Armie Hammer would describe how he wanted to “eat her flesh”, and how the actor would even lick & suck on small wounds she had on her body.
Another former girlfriend alleged that the actor branded her by carving an “A” onto her body.
Now we’re seeing released Instagram messages from these accusers which highlight Hammer’s bizarre BDSM behaviors & fantasies.
Armie Hammer net worth
Celebrity Net Worth estimates Armie Hammer’s net worth to be $16 million.
However, having already dropped out of one project, as well as the rumor of Hammer being dropped from WME talent agency, Armie Hammer could be losing out on quite a bit of work in the near future, sure to negatively affect his net worth.
