Elizabeth Chambers says watching House of Hammer was "heartbreaking on so many levels".
The documentary, which chronicles the sexual assault and abuse allegations made against Chambers' ex-husband Armie Hammer, premiered on Discovery+ September 2. Chambers was married to Hammer for ten years and shares two children with him, and revealed that she watched the docuseries after originally planning not to.
"I did not plan on seeing it, but I did drop the kids off at school one day and came home and watched it with my support system around me. It was obviously heartbreaking on so many levels and very painful," said Chambers. "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 capacity."
Chambers, who is a TV personality and the founder of BIRD Bakery, added that she had been asked to be a part of the docuseries, but declined for the sake of her children. She does not plan to show them House of Hammer. "It’s not appropriate for them at this time." She also said the content of the documentary shocked her.
"I definitely was surprised, but I think that’s to be expected."
House of Hammer is streaming on Discovery+.
