The actor gave a candid interview to GQ magazine.
Armie Hammer became the hero of the special issue of GQ Heroes magazine. The star of the film Call Me By Your Name graced the cover of the issue and gave a candid interview, where he spoke about the breakup with Elizabeth Chambers and the effect of quarantine.
Armie and Elizabeth announced their divorce in July after 10 years of marriage and 13 years of relationship. They have two children – Harper, 5, and Ford, 3. Speaking about parting with his wife, the actor noted that it was a time of “great changes.”
I think you will not find anyone in the world who would say that what I am going through now is easy to get through. It’s not if it was your initiative [расстаться] or not, whether you think it’s a good idea or not. In any case, parting is a great shock. It carries a lot of pain and change with it. Change is a universal constant. Change is not always bad, but that doesn’t mean it’s painless.
– said Hammer.
Elizabeth and I are adults, we made a decision. And the main thing for us was to make sure that divorce does not greatly affect the children, or at least to mitigate their fears and anxieties,
– stressed the actor. After breaking up, Armie spent part of the quarantine alone in the Cayman Islands, because his film career was paused. He admitted that he held out for a long time, but in the end he turned to a psychologist.
Most of the time I was alone, trying to get used to what was happening. But in the end I realized that I was not working out and called my friend in America: “Look, I know you work in the mental health field. Do you have someone to talk to? ” And so I started talking to a psychologist twice a week. It turned out to be very useful, it gave me a new perspective on the situation and helped me solve some problems. Now I think that everyone should go to a psychologist and discuss their problems with someone,
– shared Armie.
