Sometime in 2020, one of Julia’s friends told her that Armie Hammer was following her on Instagram. Upon checking, she realized Armie had messaged her back in 2017 regarding a photoshoot she was a part of. He wanted to know if there was a place in Los Angeles, California, where he could see them. Julia messaged him back in March 2020, and they got to talking soon after that. On the show, she claimed that the ‘Call Me by Your Name’ actor invited her to a play in New York within hours, but the lockdown began soon after.
However, Julia stated that the conversations between her and Armie on Instagram turned sexual quite quickly. She added that they discussed an alternate retelling of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ where the Prince made the Princess a sex slave. Julia claimed that in another message, Armie said, “I have a fantasy about having someone prove their love and devotion and tying them up in a public space at night and making their body free use and seeing if they will f–k strangers for me.”
On the show, Julia mentioned that Armie told her about wanting to tie her up after seeing her photos. Furthermore, Julia alleged that he talked about bondage and his desire for her to submit to him to the point where he could command her. While they never met in person, Julia called Armie a “predator” and was sure he would have hurt her if they had met. Another audio message that Julia said was from Armie mentions wanting to tie her up and doing whatever he wanted with her.
