I'm still upset about that article. Sure, in these threads we may make fun of him, but we're not a bunch of allegedly reputable journalists getting a fat paycheck from Buzzfeed. And I hate that she tries to dress up this unwarranted character assassination as "but I only care that marginalised groups don't get 2nd chances". Bitch please, you spent 95% of the piece taking personal attacks at him BC he's actually experiencing success and you knew it would generate clicks.

He can feel however he wants to feel - but it's ridiculous for someone in his current position to attach so much importance to an article on a pop culture website that he's deleting long-standing social media accounts and having any kind of public sad about it. He didn't get taken down by the New York Times, FFS. In a few days no one will give a fuck.

R76 ONTD hate everyone who isn't black. Literally, go onto any post about a white celebrity and they'll be making comments about how bored they are with white people and making comments that'd be considered racist against any other race. They're the kind of people who'll attack black people for dating outside their race. Awful people.

As for Armie, he's 31 years old. He shouldn't be so thin-skinned by now that articles like the Buzzfeed one actually get a response from him, much less him deleting his Twitter account. The oddest part is he thinks that on his previous projects there've been nefarious plots to sabotage them - so shouldn't he have been expecting an article like this?

As for it engendering sympathy from the Hollywood community - ha. Sympathy isn't something they're known for. A few rich white guys will stick up for him, because the article was an attack on them too, but it's not going to get him sympathy votes for any awards.

I tried reading that Buzzfeed article but it was so so long & tedious I just quit. I'm sure that will be the reaction of the majority of people. It did come across as a hit piece and for no reason whatsoever.. It's not like Armie Hammer is Harvey Weinstein sexually harassing women. He's just another good looking actor that's never quite become a star. He's doing what most actors in that situation do--try out for smaller quality projects. He keeps getting second chances because he's a decent actor & not just because he's white like the Buzzfeed writer suggests.

There are other minority actors that also get multiple chances and they continue to not put butts in the theater seats. People like Halle Berry comes to mind. She's still riding the coat tails of her undeserved Oscar.

Don't see why you need to knock a guy for attempting to get a job in an industry he obviously loves.

Slate jumped in and wrote a piece telling Armie to man up and reactivate his Twitter.

Social Media is supposed to be fun. Why the fuck would he reactivate when all it gets him is attacked? I'm honestly surprised he didn't do it sooner because ever since the James Woods tweet people have been tagging Armie on Twitter asking if he's a pedophile and condemning him for doing the film.

I checked out the responses to Armie's tweet about the article on his account last night, and they were almost entirely supportive of him - very few people were tweeting anything negative at HIM, though in other places, like the Buzzfeed author's Twitter, it was not as rosy.

Armie is a decent actor, not bad by any means, but there are way better actor out there.

Trying to follow this, but I thought being on Twitter was a voluntary thing. Now in order to 'man up' you have to go on it? Slate is obviously just trying to jump in on the publicity. Armie Hammer is not the first celebrity to leave social media over some perceived slight. For some so called celebrities, manning up would involve actually involve leaving Twitter. Also for some so called President.

by Anonymousreply 11211/27/2017

Exactly, R111. Plus Armie was the perfect choice for an article like this because of all the nuggets of douchiness the writer could throw in as well - like his "ATF bachelors party", plus he's popular right now.

But nooo, it must be because the writer is psychotic and is trying to kill him.

by Anonymousreply 11311/27/2017

R111 obviously this isn't true. There have been quite a few actors that Hollywood has tried to make happen in a series of movies and failed at it. Usually what they have in common is that they look movie star handsome & have charisma so the directors , producers keep taking a chance . Hammer is not unique at all. Here's a 2013 article about this very subject.

And R113 this article is a a way to write about this subject without being a total bitch about it like that buzzfeed writer. She managed to make an actor that wasn't even on most people's radar and one that wasn't even popular ( I mean everyone hated the Winkelvoss twins in that Facebook movie) and her very over the top hatchet job article made him sympathetic. Maybe she's not psychotic--just a bad writer who culled together some gossip pieces into a very wordy article.

by Anonymousreply 11411/27/2017

Given you said you quit reading it, R114, because you can't handle long or wordy articles, how would you even know what she was saying? I guess, given that, it's hardly shocking you linked to a "top ten" style piece

by Anonymousreply 11511/27/2017

R115 I'm capable of reading long, wordy novels & well written think pieces. This was neither of those. This was a hit piece and boring as hell which is why I stopped reading it. That article that you call a top ten style piece had more intelligent things to say than that nonsense written by a poor ass buzzfeed writer. What are you, her PR agent.

Here's a quote from that article I linked: "t’s hardly the first time (and won’t be the last) Hollywood has decided that a certain actor is gonna be huge and has done all it can to make that happen, and yet it hasn’t. It’s kind of strange and a little unfair that in a town where we’re regularly assured that every waiter is an actor waiting for his break, some never get a shot while others get more than one, even if audiences don’t embrace them the first time out. But it also shows how strange an echo-box tinseltown can be—sometimes all that needs to happen is that Studio X hears Studio Y loves This Guy for their next big star, and Studio X then has to cast him, and so on. Then a few years later This Guy has six movies coming out, and is on every magazine cover, and audiences, unless they fall in love with him instantly, feel a little aggrieved that they’re so forcefully being sold an unknown quantity."

That's more insight in 1 paragraph than what that Buzzfeed writer could manage to say in 6000 words.

Didn't even know who she was writing about R117 until she mentioned the winkelvoss twins in the Social Network so not even remotely a fangirl. I could barely pick him out of a lineup. I just recognize a hit piece when I read it. There was absolutely no need to pound on this guy for being a struggling actor like a million others out there and act like he represents some kind of white supremacy. There are many actors who're given multiple chances to make it. There are many actresses as well.

If she wanted to make a point about minority actors, then she should have given examples of any who were in movies that bombed and who were subsequently not given a chance to make it. If you're going to say this one actor trampled on the opportunity of a whole lot of others, then you need to show some examples. Whose roles did he steal. I know he's in Call Me By Your Name now, but that's not exactly a big blockbuster movie that's going to make you rich or even necessarily a star. What exactly did she want him to do? Give up on being an actor because in her opinion he failed too many times? Her entire premise of the article was ridiculous.

by Anonymousreply 11811/27/2017

Well, speaking of ridiculous premises, your claim that you didn't even know who Hammer was is ludicrous.

So, you started reading this article about someone you didn't know, then felt so angered by this article about someone you didn't know that you decided to look up a thread about the person you didn't know, then continue to post in the thread?

Also, if you don't know who he is how can you state that he obviously loves the industry, like you did in R100?

[QUOTE]it. There was absolutely no need to pound on this guy

Aside from him being rich, a douche, in a popular film, being talked about for award contention, and having made so many mishaps that it'd add fun spice to an article? What makes Hammer immune from criticism, compared to the ten guys listed in the article you linked to?

Really R119, that's what you got? I read lots of articles about people I don't know. I've read Call Me By Your Name so I was reading a review of this weekend's box office which linked to stories about the actor which led to the buzzfeed article. I've seen the pictures of the actors in the movie but didn't know their names so no not some big fan.

I deduced he loved acting because he didn't quit the business after his many failures as the article pointed out. He's not immune from criticism. The article, however, was just a very silly hit job which negated any point it was trying to make. One man doesn't represent the entire white race trampling on the rights of minority actors.

Why are you so obsessed with this heterosexual? Gross.

by Anonymousreply 12111/27/2017

Glad he didn't quit. Nor do so many other actors who are written off after a dud. Most of them turn to TV. Fact is why is he given chance after chance in big movies? He brings nothing unique. Zac Efron is another that comes to mind. Efron does have a huge fan following from his days on the hit tv teen show. Armie Hammer is a mystery. Hollywood is otherwise quite ruthless. I doubt if Charlie Hunnam will get another big break after his recent couple duds.

Exactly R120. Most people on Twitter are supportive of him and clearly saw the writing as a hit piece and that includes people of color.

It wasn't that the subject matter wasn't relevant it was that she spent most of her time attacking him (role by role in detail) and he was clearly the wrong person to use to make this point when there are so many other actually problematic actors that fit what she was going for. Armie has consistently worked his way up, he doesn't say or do anything that most people would find offensive and it's not like he starred in big budget film after big budget film as the main draw. He wasn't the star of "The Social Network" he was just an actor in it who was playing real people who are also actually white. He didn't carry "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." that was also Henry Cavill's film.

He's currently getting attention for an Indie which she claimed was calculated. Perhaps it is but it's clear he went all in.

I do take his word for it when he says he genuinely loves acting because it's clear he doesn't have to do it. It's also clear that Twitter can be a toxic environment. Thin skin or not, no one has to be on Twitter.

It would have been better to focus on someone like Alex Pettyfer who, with his often talked about bad behavior, clearly seems to keep getting multiple chances.

by Anonymousreply 13011/28/2017

Actually it’s a good point to make that Armie hasn’t really been given more chances to fail than anyone else. He was given one really big film that failed; then he was given a smaller film which he held 50/50 with Cavill which failed; and then exiled to indies. This is really not an exceptional situation. Someone like Chris Pine was given more chances to fail in leads before he found his voice in supporting roles in studio films like Into the Woods and Wonder Woman.

I think it was more Hammer’s attitude in THR article which set the reporter off than her alleged thesis. What he did was recontextualize any professional setback as an assault of his stardom. There was a ghastliness to his Nate Parker/Casey Affleck comparison in that the ultimate reason in dredging it up was to point out how he, a white male, was denied recognition in a movie about slavery by a black filmmaker about black historical figures. (This is not the first time he has made slavery about himself either; he criticized a black recording artist for using slave shackles ironically on his album cover art by tweeting ‘I made a movie about slavery and I don’t understand why anyone would want to resurrect this kind of imagery (paraphrasing)’.). And he also more or less acknowledges that the current climate regarding sex might affect his potential plaudits for CMBYN, and then goes on to grope the male reporter without his permission.

I don’t think the Buzzfeed writer provided a good argument to support her thesis in regards to Armie’s white privilege, but she more than enough provided enough material to chip away at Armie’s self-regard which was probably her ultimate goal.

by Anonymousreply 13411/28/2017

R116 - I also got bored with the article and ended up having to skim. It started ok - went on too long and got dull.

As someone else has said - it wasn’t a complete character assassination - just says a rich, pretty, very tall, douchey guy has had rather a lot of chances to make it big - and hasn’t. Which would seem to be true.

Seem to remember hearing a story (think it was a you must remember this podcast!) where some director or producer told a neophyte William Holden that he should keep plugging away - but that he was too young and pretty and wouldn’t start to see success till he got older and his face developed some character. Which is what happened.

Also remember years ago an article about how Hollywood tried to make Diane Lane into a STAR! - and tho she had lots of chances and was so gorgeous - it still hadn’t happened. Yet she’s still working regularly - and probably gets better notices and more recognition than she did when she was younger. So it’s not without precedent.

If Hammer is serious about it - he’ll stick to it and keep taking those interesting indie parts and keep building character and cred. And thank his lucky stars he being offered rolles at all! And at least he’s in a position to pick and chose and actually do that. I mean - he says he doesn’t take money from his family. Which is admirable. But there’s no way I can see him as a cater-waiter between gigs. Ain’t no way that boy will starve!

by Anonymousreply 15011/28/2017

The biggest problem with the Buzzfeed article is that Hammer is actually a poor example of what Peterson was trying to illustrate. Hammer's filmography is not that long. It averages out to about 2 films a year, and the vast majority are either not leading roles, or in small films. Hammer got really good buzz from a great performance in an unexpected huge hit film (The Social Network). From that, he got J. Edgar, Mirror Mirror, The Lone Ranger and Man From UNCLE in quick succession (the writer either didn't know or conveniently leaves out that Man From UNCLE was long-delayed, making his "chances" seem longer than they actually were). After Lone Ranger flopped bigly, he's signed onto nothing but smaller budget or indie films. The CMBYN buzz is driven entirely from critics and audience response to the film. This idea that the big studios keep trying to push him as the next big movie star is bullshit. He got his big chance, he failed, and now he's a steady working actor. CMBYN will get him more good roles, but it's not like anyone is tripping over themselves to build a franchise around him.

There are tons of great examples of the white guy getting chance after chance (ahem, Ryan Reynolds), but Hammer really isn't one of them.

What the article says tho is that it was not his choice when he says it was cause he's a serious actor who loves the art.

by Anonymousreply 15311/28/2017

R153, he larger point is that Hammer is one of the many white guys who get to fail but keep happening. "But none have been afforded the sort of second, and third, and fourth chances that Hammer has been." Which is really misleading.

She tries to lump him into the category of white guy who keeps failing up, when in reality it's pretty clear he accepted that big movie star wasn't going to work for him and went the indie route instead. Her big complaint seems to be that he's blames everyone but himself for his big movie failures and is now being an "indie martyr." But he's not a fucking Kardashian trying to play thespian--he's actually a pretty decent actor. That's why it feels like a silly hit piece--what the fuck is her problem with him exactly? That he doesn't seem humble enough?

by Anonymousreply 15411/28/2017

Her problem is more like how minority actor would not have as many chances or even any good chance to start with as a lead actor. He's not able to see he's privileged, like most people.

He's not the problem, the problem is that others actors are not given the same opportunities to fail again and again as lead and work anyway.

[quote] Though Ryan Reynolds is the most inexplicable career in the movies. He'd had nothing but flops till Deadpool and now they act like he's a big A lister.

Not really R178. He was a child actor who started doing smaller roles on TV shows, got a tv series of his own, did a few indie films, then comedies and finally hit it big with Deadpool.

His main thing was always comedy. Two Guys and a Girl, The Proposal and Just Friends come to mind. He tried being the pretty boy in Amityville and Blade Trinity (where his role was again, mainly comic relief.) So it does make sense that he ended up becoming an "A Lister" in a role where his job is to be funny while being covered in a suit (and when not in a suit his character is covered in scars so he is nearly unrecognizable) in the Deadpool franchise. He's the funny guy that happens to be attractive. He's not the attractive guy that wants to be something else.

Deadpool is a franchise where his looks don't play a role at all.

Armie, Chris Pine, etc. couldn't pull that off.

The real problem with the article is that her thesis is flawed. "Hollywood" isn't trying to make Armie happen. His best role to date has been in the indie CMBYN. Agree with others that there are better examples. She singled out AH for a hit piece because he's current, not because he really fit the bill.

My go-to example of this phenomenon is McBongo. After A Time to Kill, way back in 1996, he got cast as a lead in film after film, mostly flops, for decades, long after it was clear he would never be "the next big thing." But, God bless him, he hung in there and finally won an Oscar. He had to starve himself nearly to death, ruining his looks forever in the process, but he got the recognition he always wanted.

I'm the poster who stated that I first came to this thread (and the CMBYN one) last month, upon learning about the film. At the time, I didn't care one way or another about Armie nor Timothee. Nowadays, I find them amusing and genial and fun to watch in interviews, but I wouldn't call myself a fan, much less a fangirl. The only Hammer movie I've seen is THE SOCIAL NETWORK (in 2011 on DVD) and the only film of Chalamet's I've seen is MISS STEVENS (early this year, on Netflix), though I didn't realize who he was at the time nor that the actor in CMBYN (which I've yet to see) and in MISS STEVENS were one and the same.

“Having become fully aware of those old charges in the months since it bought the film, Fox Searchlight has been looking to pre-empt any late-season bombshells that might land while voters have ballots in hand. Also, one of the flash points for the uprising in The Birth of a Nation is the brutal rape of Turner’s wife Cherry, which strikes a match that flares into murderous rebellion against white slave-holders and the institutionalized cruelty that has never been exposed to this level in a major film.

“Parker, with Fox Searchlight’s support, has decided to face this 17-year-old legal matter, head on. Hours before receiving the prestigious Vanguard Award from the Sundance Institute, Parker invited a Deadline reporter to his home Thursday – remnants of the five daughters who live with him all around – to look him in the eye and discuss the case. He spoke about how he has grown as a man, a father and an artist since that night at Penn State. And how he is determined not to let his worthy film be defined by that case, lest it detract from his mission to use Turner’s story as a catalyst for discussion on the turbulence between blacks and whites that has roiled major cities across the country this year.”

In first instance it was Julia Roberts vehicle, UNCLE was an ensemble piece with his two other co-stars billed higher. And The Lone Ranger's promotion was all about Johnny Depp who was the lead.

It's more like they have to struggle to pad out the actress categories every year, since there are far, far fewer roles for women (only 30% of all roles) and of those roles, only a tiny percentage pre awards-caliber. Whereas the actor categories are super-competitive from year to year, with a surplus of actors to choose from.

Armie has stated (when they were asked about supportive mothers in an interview) that his mom won't be watching CALL ME BY YOUR NAME, the biggest film of his career in terms of prestige and good notices he's gotten, because she "disapproves of the subject matter." He then stated immediately after that she and he are polar opposites politically and so they don't discuss politics anymore. At any rate, I doubt they'd support him financially in his acting endeavors. They probably would if he did religious films. In fact, he played Billy Graham in some biopic at the start of his career, before SOCIAL NETWORK. They probably supported him there.

[quote]Mark my words all this "friendship" will fizzle away as soon as they are done doing the sequels. Fake PR.

I think it's possible that they are genuinely close NOW and that it will eventually fade away as well. This is the nature of acting - people come together to work on a project, emotions run high because acting is all about that shit, and for a while everybody is as tight-knit as a family. But then the next project comes along and the next, and then there are new 'families' and the old ones slip away. Most actors will tell you that - they get incredibly close to people they're working with, but it doesn't result in lifelong friendships for the most part. It's for the moment.

Oh come on, R515. So men can't be close friends? Especially considering they're actors, so more emotionally available than a typical man. Besides, if Armie is having sex with any man it's going to be Luca, he as much as said so himself.

Realistically, if they were doing anything, they wouldn't be quite so close in public. They'd want to play it down so no-one gets suspicious. It's because of how close they are and how open they are about it that makes me doubt anything is going on.

Not so sure about the "more" part - at least he's said stuff like he felt like he fell in love with Luca, and he flew to Italy just to spend time with him. I don't think they did have sex, but there's more reason to believe it with Luca than there is with Timothee - who he described as being like a brother.

by Anonymousreply 52012/01/2017

R520 He's said he's fallen in love with Timothée multiple times.

'I couldn’t appreciate the compliment about the chemistry more because, like, I fell in love with Timmy in the process of making the movie. He’s fucking terrific and he’s also an incredible actor, so I had all of that.'

'I think I fall more and more in love with Timmy every time I see him.'

'I just went in and barged through the door, and I was like, ‘Hey!’ And then we had like a big hugging moment, and he was like, ‘Hey, man, it’s really great to meet you but I’m in the middle of a piano lesson.’ And I was like, ‘Fine, fine. Yeah, of course, of course.’ So he finished the piano lesson, and then the two of us jumped on bicycles. He’d been in Crema for weeks at this point. So we got on the bicycles and he showed me around the whole town. And we rode, and we went to different restaurants, different gelaterias, like, all the stuff. And it was incredibly–that’s actually what happened in the movie. I was a new guy in town, and he showed me around. And I fell in love with, just like, you know, Timmy. I mean it was amazing. It was an amazing experience.'

He's compared Luca to a father as much as he has Timothée to a brother and has stayed with him in NYC multiple times since filming ended.

So yeah, more delusional.

by Anonymousreply 52112/02/2017

Fair enough then, I'm wrong.

by Anonymousreply 52212/02/2017

His relationship with Luca seems to be one of complex love/hate. Armie projects his daddy issues onto him as well as his own insecurities as an actor. He desperately wants Luca's admiration and respect. And of course Luca wants to fuck HIM, but will also be blunt with him and tell him when he's doing a bad job. So it's a weird one.

On the other hand, him and Timothée seem to be just normal close friends, closer than him and Luca are judging by the way they whisper to one another in Q&As as soon as someone else gets asked a question. But it's easy to be closer with someone when there's nothing there but simply liking the other and no weird insecurities that you're projecting onto that person. Let's just say Luca may be the type of person Armie stays with for a few days, but he's not the type of person he's gonna be calling twice a week.

Anyone that thinks his and Timothée's friendship is pure PR is just bitter and cynical. We all know Timothée wears his emotions all over his face. Just watch the way his face lights up when he's listening to/talking about Armie's dancing and the way he tells the story. It's pure affection. You don't have to believe they're fucking to recognize they clearly really like one another.

by Anonymousreply 52312/02/2017

I believe they're true friends. I also believe that there's an ease between them that occurs among friends and not secret lovers.

Luca is bananas, he claims he wants to make five. When was the last time a non-action/sci-fi film had that many sequels? Far more likely that it will be a trilogy, but that's assuming the story can even be drawn out that long and maintain the fans' interest. How many people want to watch four more hours of Elio and Oliver hooked up with women and NOT together? Because that's basically what we're looking at - a couple of movies of them going through other relationships with no guarantee of them being together in the end. No languorous Italian setting, no James Ivory writing.

There are reasons Andre Aciman only selectively visited the next 20 years of their lives in the course of getting to the point of the book.

R572 No, it wasn't inaccurate but he was put on the spot out of nowhere and failed to be particularly eloquent about it.

If you actually break down the quote:

'The idealist in me would like to think, like, okay, I'm not working with "Polanski" the person, I'm working with him as an artist and this is a new thing that he's doing and I think that he is a talented artist or whatever. BUT at the end of the day, like... AS A HUMAN, AND AS SOMEONE THAT'S TRYING TO LIVE A VIRTUOUS LIFE, you kind of go "Is it worth it?" because you know there's going to be drama. You know it's going to be SOMETHING THAT CAN OVERSHADOW what you're actually trying to do.'

To me, that can easily be more eloquently reworded as:

'The idealist in me would like to think I'm working with someone for their art and not for their personal life. However, as a human, it doesn't seem worth it as not only would there be drama, but I wouldn't be living upto my own moral standards of trying to be a virtuous person. The weight of his actions can overshadow the art.'
