The American actor Armie Hammer has a $10 million fortune. After playing the identical Wiklevoss twins in David Fincher’s film The Social Network, Armie Hammer initially gained widespread recognition (2010).
Before obtaining the part of televangelist Billy Graham in the 2008 film “Billy: The Early Years,” Armie had his first acting job as Student #2 on an episode of the Emmy-winning FOX sitcom “Arrested Development.” He also had guest roles on “Veronica Mars” (2006) and “Desperate Housewives” (2007).
On August 28, 1986, in Santa Monica, California, Armand Douglas Hammer was given the name Armie Hammer. His father, Michael, is the owner of Armand Hammer Productions, Knoedler Publishing, and numerous other companies, while his mother, Dru Ann, was a loan officer for a bank.
When Armie was 7 years old, the family—which also includes Armie’s younger brother, Viktor—moved to the Cayman Islands after a brief stay in Dallas, Texas. Before leaving for Los Angeles again, they stayed for five years.
Hammer attended Los Angeles Baptist High School and the Cayman Islands’ Faulkner’s Academy and Grace Christian Academy (which his father established), but left in his junior year to concentrate on his acting career (although he did take classes at UCLA and Pasadena City College at his parents’ urging).
After he stopped attending school, Armie’s parents first distanced themselves from him; nevertheless, he claims that they gradually came to embrace his work.
Oil magnate Armand Hammer was Armie’s paternal great-grandfather. In 1957, Armand bought Occidental Petroleum with money from his wife’s family. He managed the business until his passing in 1990. With a market valuation of around $10 billion today, Occidental Petroleum is still a publicly listed firm.
Armand Hammer’s estimated net worth at the time of his passing was up to $800 million. That is equivalent to around $1.6 billion in today’s dollars after inflation. Later, according to some stories, the money was considerably smaller. In December 1990, Armand passed away.
At the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery, which is located across the street from his magnificent Occidental Building and Hammer art museum, he is laid to rest. In the same cemetery as the burial sites of Marylin Monroe, Hugh Hefner, and Rodney Dangerfield, Armand is interred in a large tomb.
Arm & Holly
Contrary to a common misconception, Armand was not involved in the creation of Arm & Hammer baking soda. BUT! To add to the confusion, Armand bought a sizable investment in the publicly traded home products business Church & Dwight in the 1980s. He also became a director on the board of the business.
Why did this seem unclear? The most well-known item produced by Church & Dwight is still Arm & Hammer baking soda. Before Armand was even born, the baking soda firm had been using the moniker “Arm & Hammer” for more than three decades. It is said that Armand was motivated to purchase his interest in Church & Dwight as a result of being often questioned about a relationship.
Armie made his big-screen debut in “Flicka” in 2006. The following year, “Justice League: Mortal” director George Miller cast him as Batman/Bruce Wayne, but the project was cancelled. Hammer had appearances in “Blackout” and “Billy: The Early Years” in 2008, the latter of which garnered him the lead role and a Grace Award nomination for Most Inspiring Performance in a Motion Picture or Television.
In 2009, Hammer had appearances in the comedies “Spring Breakdown” with Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch as well as “Reaper” and “Gossip Girl” on The CW. He portrayed identical twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss in the 2010 movie “The Social Network,” which was about the founding of Facebook.
The movie garnered more than 170 accolades, earned an Oscar nomination for Best Motion Picture of the Year, and brought in $224.9 million at the box office. In the 2011 film “J. Edgar,” Armie portrayed Clyde Tolson, a former associate director of the FBI.
For his performance, Armie was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role. In the Snow White adaptation “Mirror Mirror” in 2012, Hammer received the royal treatment as Prince Andrew Alcott, sharing the screen alongside Julia Roberts and Lily Collins.
Two years after first meeting Elizabeth Chambers, Armie started dating her in 2008. They got married on May 22, 2010, and on December 1, 2014, Harper and Ford were born into the family. 2012 saw the opening of a bakery by Hammer and Chambers in San Antonio, Texas; a year later, they added a second Bird Bakery site in Dallas.
The pair announced their separation in July 2020, and in an August Instagram post, Armie disclosed that he had lived with his buddy Ashton Ramsey for the previous two months and had been working in construction with Ramsey during the Coronavirus outbreak.
Allegations of Sexual Abuse and Others
Armie was charged in 2021 with a long number of odd activities against multiple women. Armie allegedly cut a “A” into his pelvis, and one lady suggested—seriously, it seemed—that she have a rib surgically removed so he could eat it.
An unidentified Instagram user claimed to have posted screenshots of chats purportedly made by Armie in which he discussed thoughts of rape and cannibalism. According to reports, the texts were sent while he was still married to Elizabeth Chambers between 2016 and 2020.
Following his denial of the accusations, Armie withdrew from two movies and two television shows. Additionally, he apparently no longer has WME as a client. His publicist left shortly after. He reportedly reshot scenes for several movies in which he had already shot them.
Recognition And Nominations
In 2010, Hammer shared awards from the Hollywood Film Festival, Phoenix Film Critics Society, Southeastern Film Critics Association, and Palm Springs International Film Festival with his “The Social Network” co-stars. Hammer also won a Best Supporting Actor prize from the Toronto Film Critics Association Awards.
At CinemaCon in 2013 and the Young Hollywood Awards in 2011, he received the title of Male Star of Tomorrow. Armie received the One to Acclaim Award from the Texas Film Hall of Fame in 2018, and the SCAD Savannah Film Festival honoured him for his work in the films “Call Me by Your Name,” “Sorry to Bother You,” “Hotel Mumbai,” and “On the Basis of Sex” by giving him the Outstanding Achievement in Cinema award.
Golden Globes, Independent Spirit Awards, Satellite Awards, Reviewers’ Choice Award, and various critics organisations all nominated Hammer for Best Supporting Actor for “Call Me by Your Name.”
How Much Money Does Armie Hammer Make?
Ah, the answer everyone seeks. How much money does Armie Hammer make? Hammer’s net worth, calculated by Celebrity Net Worth, is $16 million, which includes the money he has earned through his film career and endorsement deals. Of course, if his great-$200 grandfather’s million net worth (and Hammer’s share of that sum) are taken into consideration, that figure is probably greater.
