Embattled actor Armie Hammer recently declared his dream dinner guest would be Marqués de Sade, an 18th Century French philosopher whose lurid works about violent sexual fantasies and suffering inspired the term ‘sadist’. 

Hammer, 34, made the admission in a November 2020 interview with Netflix Brazil for the film Rebecca, after being asked, ‘What historical person would you like to have dinner with?’   

‘Armie Hammer said she would like to have dinner with the Marquis de Sade. I did not expect that or anything he said in this unfiltered interview,’ the caption of the video translates to read.

The clip’s re-emergence comes in the wake of a series of screenshots that leaked over the weekend, purporting to show Hammer authoring a series of disturbing messages about rape fantasies, cannibalism, and ‘blood-sucking’ to a woman over a period of four years.

The actor is yet to speak publicly on the matter, and multiple requests for comment sent to his representatives have so far gone unanswered. 

While Hammer offers no further explanation as to why de Sade is his ideal historical guest in the Netflix video, the 18th Century radical libertine was a best-selling author of mostly graphic and violent erotic works.

The leaked DMs, alleged to be from Armie's Instagram account, also include graphic accounts of sex acts and the message: 'I am 100% a cannibal'

De Sade’s breadth of work includes novels, short stories, plays, dialogues, and political tracts, which are mostly centered around themes of pornography and sexual fantasies with an emphasis on violence, suffering and anal sex.

The words ‘sadism’ and ‘sadist’ directly derive from works of fiction he authored, including his novel The 120 Days of Sodom, which traces the sexual adventures and manipulations of four French libertines who rape, torment, and then kill young victims at a chateau in Germany’s Black Forest. 

The book was written in 1777 while De Sade was incarcerated in Bastille for abusing several young girls.  

De Sade’s frequent references to sodomy, pedophilia and sexual perversion, in addition to his fictional accounts of extravagant orgies – which describe sexual cruelty and murder in excessive detail – led many to presume he was deranged. 

He spent a third of his life in prisons or asylums, and was officially declared insane in 1803.

De Sade died in a mental facility in Charenton in 1814. For several years before his death he was said to be involved in a sexual relationship with 14-year-old Madeleine LeClerc, the daughter of an employee at the asylum. 

Sexual sadism disorder – a mental condition defined as experiencing sexual arousal in response to extreme pain, suffering or humiliation done non-consensually to others – was named after de Sade posthumously on account of his crimes and fictional works.

Hammer, 34, began trending on Twitter on Sunday night after a series of screenshots showing graphic messages he'd allegedly penned to the woman leaked

The controversy involving Hammer was first stirred up on Sunday when a series of screenshots showing graphic messages he’d allegedly penned to a woman were leaked by the anonymous, now-private Instagram account, House of Effie.

The alleged messages, said to be sent between October 2016 and February 2020, include conversations about BDSM, in addition to numerous sexual references to cannibalistic acts and ‘blood-sucking’. 

In one exchange, Hammer is seen to write: ‘I am 100% a cannibal. I want to eat you.’ 

‘F**k. That’s scary to admit,’ the message continues. ‘I’ve never admitted that before.’ 

The authenticity of the screenshots has not yet been verified, however the woman behind the House of Effie account shared new alleged correspondences with Hammer on Tuesday, in which he appeared to refer to her as his ‘slave’. 

‘You just live to obey me and be my slave,’ a message purported to have been sent from Hammer’s official Instagram account reads. ‘I will own you. That’s my soul. My brain. My spirit. My body. Would you come and be my property till you die?’

The message continues: ‘If I wanted to cut off one of your toes and keep it with me in my pocket so I always had a piece of you in my possession?’ 

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com on Wednesday, a close friend of Hammer’s estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers said the actor’s former spouse is ”shocked and sickened’  by the messages.

The two announced their 10-year marriage was over in July, as a source close to Chambers admitted she was aware of his infidelities, including being romantically involved with Rebecca co-star Lily James as DailyMail.com revealed last year, which led to their split.  

But Hammer’s alleged extreme kinks are a ‘complete shock’ to the mother-of-two, with the friend adding: ‘Armie appears to be a monster.’

They said: ‘A lot of these women have reached out to Elizabeth and although she didn’t want to admit it to herself at first, she knows now they are speaking the truth. 

‘Armie had a whole other side to him that she wasn’t aware of. Whether it was always there and he kept it hidden, or something happened that changed him completely, she doesn’t know.’

In a second alleged exchange of undated messages shared by House of Effie, Hammer allegedly writes: 'I feel like the same way you are on one side of the slave spectrum, I Am on the other side of the master spectrum and I can't ever imagine another slave.'

In a second alleged exchange of undated messages shared by House of Effie, Hammer allegedly writes: ‘I feel like the same way you are on one side of the slave spectrum, I Am on the other side of the master spectrum and I can’t ever imagine another slave.’

The insider claims that one of the women who contacted Chambers about her experience with Hammer was left so traumatized that she entered an ‘intense rehab and therapy program because of his emotional and maybe physical abuse.’

They added: ‘He preyed upon her when she was coming out of a relationship. He made her feel very uncomfortable, the things he wanted to do made her very scared.’ 

The graphic Instagram DMs that Hammer allegedly penned to a woman included talk of rape fantasies, BDSM and cannibalism. In one message, the actor allegedly writes to the woman: ‘I am 100% a cannibal. I want to eat you.’ 

Though the messages are unverified, House of Effie attempted to prove their authenticity by sharing private photos alleged to be from Hammer.

One includes an undated photo that seems to be sent from Hammer’s official Instagram account where he grabs his neck, presumably to imitate choking himself.

Another photo is of a male’s hand splayed out across a script on a wooden table, and purports to have been sent from Hammer’s Instagram account in an undated message. Visible on the man’s ring finger is a small tattoo.

Notably, Hammer has a similar looking tattoo on his finger, having previously had Chambers’ initials inked on his ring finger shortly after they married in October 2010.

They also supplied voice messages, where a man purported to be Hammer describes his sexual fantasies and speaks about the messages in question.  

In another post uploaded Tuesday, the woman claimed she first started talking to Hammer in 2016, after 'fangirling' him on Facebook

In another post uploaded Tuesday, the woman claimed she first started talking to Hammer in 2016, after ‘fangirling’ him on Facebook 

House of Effie explained she initially shared a video that referenced her alleged affair with Hammer, prompting other women to come forward and their stories to go viral. 

The user wrote: ‘Women approached me with their affair stories as we talked overwhelmed with grief for days and nights without sleeping or eating, with some ending up in the ER.

‘We collectively decided we have to speak out after how we were treated and seeing how the women in 2020 were being treated by him. We cannot allow more women to endure what we are going through in the future.’

The accuser claims the women that Hammer allegedly was having affairs with recently ‘united’ and were able to ‘piece together a five year timeline’ of his alleged activity.

They concluded that ‘when [Hammer] has a fight with his wife, he’d reach out to his kitten, and when they had a fight, the next day he would just reach out to his other kitten with the same message. Naturally all fights revolving around [Hammer’s] bad treatment of women.’

It’s unclear how many women are behind the allegations.

During this time period, Hammer was still married to Chambers. They are parents to two children, daughter Harper, six, and son Ford, three.

In a number of the alleged messages, Hammer appears to reference Chambers, including apparent threats to a woman to keep their alleged entanglement secret.

In what appears to be an undated messaged from Facebook Messenger, Hammer allegedly tells a woman: ‘Well very convenient of you to bring that up because if for some reason something goes wrong and my wife finds out I will probably remove your head from your body.’

In another undated exchange via Facebook, Chambers is brought up again. The woman asks ‘did you fix that problem?’

And when Hammer quizzes: ‘What problem?’, she replies: ‘The f**k-your-wife-so-she-lets-s**t-go problem.’

Hammer answers back: ‘Hahahaha. Not yet. But I bought a b**er pill for tomorrow night just to make sure I seal the deal. They’ve bumped her from first class and we didn’t even sit next to each other.’

Another message from Instagram dated Christmas Day 2019, the accuser claims she told Hammer’s wife about their alleged affair.

Hammer allegedly writes: ‘As long as you f**king promise never to do anything like that again. And you can also expect to be punished for it f**king SEVERELY.

‘And thinking about punishing you for it is making me really h**ny … I will not abuse you. I promise.’

One of Hammer’s exes, writer Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, has spoken out saying she believes the shocking messages ‘are real’, and later wrote: ‘It takes an army to hide a predator’ in reference to the allegations.  

Henriquez tweeted on Monday: ‘If you are still questioning whether or not those Armie Hammer DMs are real (and they are) maybe you should start questioning why we live in a culture willing to give abusers the benefit of the doubt instead of victims.’   

Henriquez, who was pictured on a date with Hammer on August 31, later took to Instagram to add: ‘It takes an army to hide a predator. Behind every abuser is a team of people working hard to cover up the trail.’

The writer reportedly blocked Hammer on social media shortly after their August meeting. It’s unclear how long they dated.

Henriquez previously posted a meme to Twitter that showed a picture of her with Hammer, bearing the caption ‘How it started’, alongside a screen shot showing Hammer’s blocked account, with the words ‘How it’s going’.  The post was uploaded on October 30. 

Another woman Hammer was recently said to be dating, model Paige Lorenze, tweeted Sunday: ‘anyone got a good therapist?’ as the messages were first leaked.

Henriquez responded to the post the following day, telling Lorenze: ‘Yeah girl, I’ll send you the number’, accompanied with a wink-face emoji.

A request for comment sent to Lorenze’s publicist has not yet been returned.

Hammer, best known for his acclaimed role in 2017’s Call Me By Your Name, has appeared in recent years in films including On the Basis of Sex, Sorry to Bother You and the upcoming Death on the Nile.

DailyMail.com has reached out to 20th Century Fox, who are behind Death on the Nile, and ViacombCBS, who are developing The Offer in which Hammer is set to star, for comment on the allegations but has not yet received a response. 

In an interview with Playboy magazine in 2013, he lifted the lid on his ‘wild’ sexual habits with women in previous relationships.

He told the outlet: ‘Well, if you’re married to a feminist as I am, then it’s…. I don’t know how much we can put here without my parents being embarrassed, but I used to like to be 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. It gets to a point where you say, “I respect you too much to do these things that I kind of want to do.”’

Hammer later blamed what he called ‘over-sharing’ about his past sexual exploits on alcohol.

‘Let’s just say hindsight is 20/20. Don’t drink during an interview,’ he told E! News.

However, in an interview with Elle later the same year, he claimed a former girlfriend once tried to stab him in bed.

‘One chick tried to stab me when we were having sex,’ Hammer said. ‘I should so not be telling this story. She was like, “True love leaves scars. You don’t have any.” And then she tried to stab me with a butcher knife,’ he added. ‘Of course I promptly broke up with her…seven months later.’
