Elizabeth Chambers broke her silence, seemingly addressing the recent controversy surrounding her estranged husband Armie Hammer.

On Thursday, she responded to reports that Hammer's "Call Me by Your Name" collaborators, director Luca Guadagnino and actor Timothée Chalamet, are in talks to reunite for a film about cannibalism.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie is based on Camille DeAngelis' novel "Bones & All" and follows a girl who "has the urge to kill and eat the people that love her."

Blogger Just Jared shared the news on Instagram and wrote: "Armie Hammer's director and co-star from 'Call Me By Your Name' (Luca Guadagnino and Timothee Chalamet) are teaming up for a ... cannibal love story movie. (He's not involved, just FYI)."

Chambers, who filed for divorce from Hammer last July, left a comment that said, "No. Words."

It's the first time Chambers has appeared to address an unconfirmed rumor claiming the actor exchanged NSFW direct messages about graphic sexual acts involving an apparent cannibalism fetish with women between 2016 and 2020.

Since an Instagram account called @houseofeffie posted alleged screenshots of the messages, the "Rebecca" actor has backed out of two upcoming projects: a romantic comedy called "Shotgun Wedding" and a Paramount Plus drama series about the creation of the classic film "The Godfather."

"Given the imminent start date of 'Shotgun Wedding,' Armie has requested to step away from the film and we support him in his decision," a production spokesperson confirmed to Insider via email.

Hammer addressed the claims against him in a statement to Variety, saying that he opted out of the romantic comedy to look after his two children, Harper, 6, and Ford, 4.

"I'm not responding to these bulls--- claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic," he said in the statement. "Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I'm grateful to them for that."

Chambers, who filed for primary physical custody and joint legal custody of the couple's two children in July, remains in the Cayman Islands during the pandemic. Hammer joined his family on the island earlier in the pandemic, but told GQ that he "came very close to completely losing my mind" while he was there.

"The experience sucked so badly. The island itself handled the situation really efficiently, but they also handled it in a really intense way. It was a very draconian lockdown," he said.

The couple announced that they were ending their 10-year marriage while they were on the island. In a statement she shared to Instagram in July, Chambers wrote that they've "decided to turn the page and move on from our marriage."

"As we enter into this next chapter, our children and relationship as co-parents and dear friends will remain our priority," she added.
