Along with the increased attention on Hammer's personal life, a 2017 interview with Andy Cohen has resurfaced in which the now–34-year-old actor suggested that he was fired from the TV show Gossip Girl.
In the clip, taken from a special episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, an audience member asked Hammer, "On Gossip Girl, who was the biggest diva on set?"
Hammer, in response to co-guest Chelsea Handler's recommendation that he not pass on another question, said, "I wish I could take all of my passes back and use them all right now."
He continued, "Let me just say, that was a tough show to film — and I didn't end up actually filming all the episodes I was supposed to because it was so tough."
"Really?" Cohen asked. "Literally, you said, 'Get me out of this'?" Hammer then replied, “It was also like, ‘Get him out of here.’”
After Hammer mentioned that Blake Lively played his love interest on the show, Handler replied, "Sounds like she was the problem," to which Cohen said, "It sure does!"
"No, no, that's not what I'm saying," Hammer quickly replied. "Don't put words in his mouth," Handler joked, to which Hammer said, "Because my foot is already there."
As previously reported, Hammer released a statement about dropping out of the forthcoming J.Lo film Shotgun Wedding: “I’m not responding to these bullshit 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."
