It can’t be easy raising two young children with a man accused of rape, sexual abuse, molestation and potential cannibalism. But according to Elizabeth Chambers, she and her estranged husband Armie Hammer are “in a really great place” as they work to finalize their divorce.

“We talk all the time,” Chambers told E! News. “We’re totally committed to our kids and being together for our kids as much as possible in a non-romantic way.” She shares 7-year-old Harper and 4-year-old Ford with the actor and alleged timeshares -Salesperson. “Children need their mother; Children need their father. So there is nothing we will not do.”

Chambers has avoided speaking publicly about Hammer for almost two years since he was publicly accused of having multiple affairs that involved non-consensual sexual acts – including rape in one case – violence and emotional abuse. He has denied the allegations. Chambers addressed the reports on her Instagram in February 2021, saying she was “shocked, heartbroken and devastated” by the allegations against her husband and supports “any victim of assault or abuse.” Since then, her Instagram has mostly focused on pictures of her children and life in the Cayman Islands, and she has refrained from commenting on anything Hammer-related, including allegations of rape by a woman, identified as Effie, who is believed to have been she is the same woman who started the allegations against Hammer from the @houseofeffie Instagram account in January 2021. Hammer denied the allegations through his attorney Andrew Brettler, who made the announcement diversity in a statement: “Mr. Hammer has maintained that all of his interactions with [Effie] — and every other sexual partner of his, by the way — were completely consensual.”

In her new interview, Chambers again refrained from directly addressing specific allegations against Hammer, although she cryptically admitted to having heard “some surprises” in recent years. She also revealed that she actually watched the documentaries House Hammer, which contained disturbing voice notes allegedly sent to women by Hammer. Chambers declined to be a part of the documentary, originally saying she would not watch it. “It was obviously heartbreaking and very painful on so many levels. But at the same time it exists. The past is the past and all we can do is take this as a moment to learn and listen and hopefully process and heal in every way,” she told E! News.

For her, healing included “sound healing” and “a breakthrough with written intentions” as well as “burning things, throwing them in the sea, praying alone, walking my kids on the beach.” For Hammer it meant rehab. In June last year, it was reported that Hammer had entered a six-month rehab program for “drug, alcohol and sex problems.” As for how that affected their upbringing together, Chambers remained vague, saying, “Armie was focused on his healing.” Using an airplane metaphor, she described him as focusing on putting on his own oxygen mask before helping others. “He’s been very busy securing his own mask.” She added that while she helps Hammer be “the best father to our kids,” she also made sure to separate from his life outside of parenthood. “Obviously he’s processing everything else that he’s personally involved with – and that’s his own journey now.”
