Armie Hammer Talks Hollywood's Sexual Misconduct Double Standard, Calls Out Casey Affleck's Oscar Win

Armie Hammer shows off his biceps on the cover of THR‘s new issue.

Here’s what the 31-year-old Call Me By Your Name actor had to share:

On Nate Parker and Casey Affleck‘s sexual misconduct allegations: ““Nate had the stuff in his past, which is heinous and tough to get beyond. I get that. But that was when he was 18 and now he’s in director jail. At the same time, the guy who went and won an Academy Award has three cases of sexual assault against him. And [Parker] had one incident — which was heinous and atrocious — but his entire life is affected in the worst possible way. And the other guy won the highest award you can get as an actor. It just doesn’t make sense, you know? I’m not saying Nate should not have been in trouble. I’m saying that they got in different levels of trouble. And that’s the disparity. It’s like there are two standards for how to deal with someone who has this kind of issue in their past, you know?”

On sexual abuse in Hollywood: “It’s been permissible for too long for people in positions of power to abuse, and for the powerless to be expected to just take it. The system seems to be shaken, and thank God.”

    And Nate Parker actually went to trial and was acquitted on the charges….

    he and his people are going after that Oscar nom hard

    Because Hollywood is racist.

  • cafeast

    Casey is vile, yet we do not know the nature of the ‘assault’. And those incidents were settled.

    Nate Parker gang-raped an unconscious orphan girl w/ his pal, then made the entire school gang up against her including the faculty, and she ended up killing herself.

    Not the same thing, Mr. Billionaire Heir sjw.

  • cafeast

    Please. He was the superstar athlete on a scholarship against a white girl w/ no parents. His rape partner who was not a scholarship athlete could not save himself. Coincidence?

    Of course he was acquitted. The same way Bill Cosby was…

    I’m so glad he’s brought this up. They both should have been blacklisted. Casey’s accusers explained everything, and i know it was in an article, I’ll try to find it. Edit: here is the rundown. She posts all the links to the different articles: http://www.laineygossip.com/Sexual-harassment-allegations-against-Casey-Affleck-still-go-largely-unnoticed-as-he-campaigns-for-Oscar-on-CBS-Sunday-Morning-and-Intro-for-November-28–2016/45587

    Of course and last year his talk would be completely different. But he is right and we all know that having famous and powerful brother helps.

  • Lisa

    Good for him for speaking out but why didn’t he speak out before the Oscars? If more famous people had raised concerns about Casey having even been nominated for an Oscar, he might not have won it. He should have spoken out because it was the right thing to do, not because it’s currently trendy.

    Casey’s case in the prime example of privilege and power in Hollywood.

  • Kelley

    double standards are wrong but not a single word about the victims here in either case. so typical. he pretends to care but really he’s saying whatever PR points sound good. nate parker is vile. so is weinstein etc. try caring about victims while youre at ti.

    What a load of crap

  • cafeast

    Well, it’s the truth.
    He one who got convicted was his producing or writing partner on that piece of shit race baiting movie that never made it to the theaters – the one this^ clown up there was a part of.
    Funny enough; the movie has a fictitious gang rape scene, people say.

    According to who is it the “truth”? You? your comment is just as much a load of crap. You have no standing to say what and what isn’t the truth.

  • cafeast

    Pls… find a nig fucker for your whore of a wife and fulfill your cuck fantasy if you are this much in need of a garden variety porch monkey. You are defending a rapist solely b/c he is a nig.
