Two years after the Los Angeles police opened an investigation against the actor Armie Hammer following the harsh testimony of women who claimed that he raped them, sexually abused them and assaulted them - the actor is interviewed for the first time and presents his side of the story.
In an interview he gave to the digital magazine "Air Mail", he said that he considered suicide after the affair exploded and even discovered that a priest had sexually abused him when he was only 13 years old.
In addition, he claimed that all the sexual encounters in question with those women who testified against him "were consensual".
"I had an extreme and intense lifestyle," he said.
"I used to pick up these women and put them into a whirlwind of travel, sex, drugs and intense emotions that fly around, and as soon as I was done - I would simply cut off contact with them, abandon them and move on. They obviously felt that they had been used and abandoned."
Hammer, who starred in films such as "The Social Network" and "Death on the Nile" alongside Gal Gadot, said that at the age of 13 he was sexually abused by a priest, which he claims ultimately led him to become interested in the world of BDMS: "It brought sexuality into my life in a way that was out of my absolute control. I was powerless, I had no ability to act independently and I wanted to have control sexually."

Hamer says that when the case broke and the hard evidence against him was revealed, he had thoughts of ending his life.
"I went out to sea and swam as far as I could. I was hoping that I would drown or that I would hit a boat or that a shark would devour me. Then I remembered that my children were still on the beach and I couldn't do this to them."
Hammer was married to TV host Elizabeth Chambers until 2020. They have two children.
Following the allegations against him, he was fired from film and television projects in which he was supposed to participate.
His agency also left him.
So far no indictment has been filed against him.
