Um, WHY? Armie Hammer and his estranged wife Elizabeth Chambers are ‘slowly figuring things out as a couple’. (I feel like it’s possible someone at Disney was like, “we need to make some money on Death on the Nile, PLEASE pretend you are working stuff out with him for like TWO WEEKS, we will make it worth your while,” and this whole thing is a PR front.
