CELEBRITY Struggles

Fame and fortune have always held unique caveats for Hollywood stars, whether it be the pressures of audiences, the invasion of privacy, or the stress of never being able to live a "normal" life again. Many resort to substance abuse to take the edge off, but get lost and struggle to find their way back. 

Armie Hammer has certainly had a year that would knock anyone off their feet. Following his divorce in 2020 after reportedly cheating on his wife Elizabeth Chambers, January 2021 kicked off a slew of fresh controversies that included accusations of sexual assault and emotional abuse from other women, along with the much-discussed alleged cannibalism fetish. Hammer was dropped from nearly every one of his Hollywood projects slated for this year.  

Now, the 'Call Me By Your Name' star has checked into a facility to treat his "drug, alcohol and sex issues,"  Vanity Fair reports. Fortunately, Hammer, who entered the treatment facility on May 31, is said to have the support of his family and ex-wife, and he "is committed to getting healthy and having custody of his kids." 

Indeed, whether it be to help deal with the pressures of fame or depression, there have been many stars who have turned to drugs or alcohol at some point in their lives to help cope, and the road to recovery often isn't linear.
