During the interview Air Mail, Hammer also revealed that he was once sexually abused by a youth pastor when he was just 13 years old. According to the “Death on the Nile” actor, this experience sparked his interest in BDSM and his interest in queer sex.
She said: “It was, for me, introducing sexuality into my life in a way that was completely out of my control. I was helpless in this situation. I had no agency in this situation. Sexuality was introduced to me in a scary way where I couldn’t control it. My interest after that was: I want to control the situation, sexually.”
Hammet said he shared the alleged sexual abuse with an older friend who died years ago and his godmother, Candace Garvey. Garvey confirmed the actor’s account of his childhood trauma to the magazine.

The actor said in an interview, per People“I had a very intense and extreme lifestyle, and I picked up these women, took them into this whirlwind of travel, sex, drugs and high emotions – and as soon as I was done, you just put them down and move on to the next woman and let the woman feel abandoned or taken advantage of.
