Armie Hammer 'struggles every day' to be the best father he can after divorceOctober 28, 2020
Armie Hammer is struggling to find happiness and be the best dad possible following the breakdown of his relationship.
The US actor, recently seen in steamy love scenes with Lily James in the Netflix drama Rebecca, split with Elizabeth Chambers during the summer after ten years of marriage.
Opening up on how he has been juggling his career with being a single dad to their kids Harper, five, and three-year-old Ford, Armie confessed: ‘I can’t be the best father if I’m not the best version of myself. I can’t be the best friend. I can’t be the best actor.’
The 34-year-old, who turned to therapy as his marriage dissolved, added: ‘I don’t think I’ll ever get to the point where I say, “I’ve nailed it. This is it. I’m happy…” But I love the idea of struggling to get that a little bit more every day.’
His admission comes after Rebecca, based on the Daphne du Maurier novel, garnered mixed reviews from critics. The feedback heaped misery on Lily, who has kept a low profile since she was pictured flirting with married actor Dominic West in Rome earlier this month.
As for Armie, he says he went into a dark hole as he attempted to deal with lockdown and a failed marriage.
Speaking at 2020’s GQ Heroes this week, the Call Me By Your Name star explained: ‘There was one specific moment where I was not in my best mental state.
‘And in the midst of this moment, that was very intense, I had a very intense moment of clarity where I sat my head up and thought, “I’m not OK”.’

The Earth mover’s for golden grill Paloma
For forklift sakes! Paloma Faith has only gone and grilled her gnashers gold.
The pregnant singer made sure her music comeback was a 24-carat attention grabber by hitching a ride on some earth-moving equipment.
Paloma’s new video, Gold, is from her upcoming album, recorded while she and her partner Leyman Lahcine were undergoing six rounds of IVF treatment.
‘Gold is the only song on the album which wasn’t recorded in my basement,’ said the 39-year-old Lullaby singer, who already has a three-year-old daughter with the French artist.
‘It embodies freedom and joy and a celebration of life, perfect escapism for a time when we need to remember we are free spirits. Gold is about how whatever you are going through, your true virtues are inside you.’
Cat lady’ Adele is Skepta-ical about rumours
Adele insists she is still a ‘single cat lady’ after pals claimed she and Skepta are giving their string of dates a proper go.
In a Halloween post on Instagram, the Someone Like You singer thanked everyone for the flattering responses to her hosting stint on Saturday Night Live last weekend, adding: ‘Happy Halloween! I’m going back to my cave now to be the (single) cat lady that I am!’
After a year of are-they-or-aren’t-they, friends claimed ‘things have been heating up’ between Skepta and the 32-year-old divorcée.
They were first linked last year when Adele went to Skepta’s 37th birthday bash. And now a friend has told People magazine: ‘They run in the same circles in London, and she’s having fun.’
Adele and Skepta were spotted on a date at a virtual reality centre in London last month.
She had flown in from her Hollywood mansion after joining in celebrations for the Notting Hill Carnival — held virtually because of Covid.
Skepta, 38, likes having a famous girlfriend — he dated model Naomi Campbell but their romance ended three years ago.
Although she has a home in London, Adele is largely based in LA with her eight-year-old son Angelo, with her ex-husband Simon Konecki having a house of his own nearby.
Elisabeth spooked by a jailhouse shock
A spooky presence gave Elisabeth Moss the shivers during a trip to the notorious Alcatraz prison.
The 38-year-old, currently filming season four of The Handmaid’s Tale, told Guilty Pleasures: ‘I don’t know if I believe in the ghosts you’d see in a movie, like walking around looking all ghosty, but there has to be something left behind.
‘I believe that a presence could be left behind in a space, if something bad happened… a mental hospital, or a prison. I went to Alcatraz when I was much younger, and you feel like something is happening.’
Moss is the latest celeb squaring up to the supernatural.
The Sister star Russell Tovey spoke this week about his sighting of a ghostly dog, while Miley Cyrus recently said she saw an alien, in a UFO shaped like a snowplough.
So you think it’s Olarra? It is now…
Another high-profile romance appears to have died in the pandemic after Luke Evans wiped his boyfriend Rafael Olarra from his Instagram.
They have now unfollowed one another on the site and the 41-year-old Beauty And The Beast hunk has also removed almost every photo of the art director from his page.
The couple started dating in summer last year and made their relationship Instagram official in February.
However, Olarra hasn’t yet let go completely as he still has a picture of Luke with the caption: ‘Missing this devilish smile.’
Guilty Pleasures has contacted Luke’s representatives for an update.
That’s a different kind of selfie, Lil!
Lily Allen credits ‘me time’ for leaving her in a healthier place sexually.
The Smile singer, who has launched her own vibrator, the Womanizer, believed previously that only a fella could fulfil her sexually.
Having just wed Stranger Things actor David Harbour, Lily said: ‘I felt alone and not very well-versed in this subject.
‘Going into my 20s, it felt like it was something everybody else was doing but nobody talked about and I didn’t engage with it.
‘I felt I was objectified and a vessel for male pleasure when it came to sex in my adolescence.’
She explained to BBC Newsbeat: ‘I’m in a much healthier place now at the grand old age of 35.
‘I wish I’d come to terms with it much sooner, it would’ve saved me a lot of headaches.’
Dancing with a mane-ger! Sam confesses to a hair transplant
From Latch to thatch… Sam Smith is breaking another taboo after admitting to having had a hair transplant.
‘My hair… it’s been a touchy place for me. I haven’t actually spoken about this before, so I’m gonna speak about it because I don’t actually feel like I have anything to hide,’ said the 28-year-old.
‘I have had hair transplant surgery. How stunning is it?’
Sam added that hair ‘started falling out from stress’.
The admission comes after the Dancing With A Stranger singer said this week that coming out as non-binary and using the pronoun ‘they’ is ‘ruining conversations’ as people struggle to compute that Sam identifies as gender neutral.
Sam will launch a new album, Love Goes, with a set at Abbey Road Studios tomorrow night.
Would a Christmas ditty in October be too much of a Payne, the former 1D-er is asking his fans.
