Armie Hammer is making it no secret that his divorce is turning out to be one of the most painful experiences of his life. The actor, who announced his split from his wife Elizabeth Chambers earlier this summer, recently admitted that the ex-couple’s split has not been easy.
Speaking to GQ Magazine in a new interview, the Hollywood actor says that the coronavirus lockdown is what might have triggered their separation. The couple quarantined in the Cayman Islands from mid-March until June with their two children, Harper, 5, and Ford, 3. It was Elizabeth who filed for divorce a few days after their joint announcement on social media, citing irreconciable differences.
Armie Hammer Calls Divorce ‘Seriously Seismic Event’
Armie told the publication, “I don’t think you’ll find anyone in the world who would ever say what I’m going through is an easy thing to go through. It’s not about whether it was your idea or not, or whether you think it’s the right idea or you don’t. Either way, a separation like this is a seriously seismic event in someone’s life.”
“There’s a lot of shifting and a lot of growing pains and a lot of changes,” he explained. “Change is a universal constant. I mean, change is not a bad thing always, but that doesn’t mean it’s painless.
“Elizabeth and I are two adults making this decision and the priority is how do we do it in a way that affects our children the least? Or, at least, how do we help get them through this in a way that mitigates as much consternation or fear or damage on their part, you know?”
Armie also said that having to be in one place with the same people during the duration of the lockdown made things a very “complicated and intense situation,” heightened by having “big personalities all locked in a little tiny place.”
