Evangeline Lilly snubs co-star Armie Hammer in film promo

Evangeline Lilly has snubbed her co-star Armie Hammer while promoting their upcoming film, “Crisis.”

Lilly unveiled an image of a new poster for the movie in which she stars with Hammer and Gary Oldman. But she captioned the Instagram image: “I am proud to be a part of a hard-hitting thriller that tackles the issues that surround an industry that profits from addiction (and proud to be in this poster with #GaryOldman.)”

The film is Hammer’s first to come out since his own personal p.r. crisis surrounding allegations from numerous women that he has a cannibal fetish.

In the film, Hammer plays an agent following a drug trafficking ring. Lilly stars as an architect recovering from oxycodone addiction.

The film was originally called, “Dreamland,” but the name was changed to “Crisis,” (which sources told Page Six had some Hollywood insiders raising their eyebrows as it seemed to also describe Hammer’s off-screen situation).

Two of Hammer’s exes have alleged that he fantasized about wanting to eat their ribs, among other odd fetishes.

But Hammer’s attorneys have said in part in response: “The stories being perpetuated in the media are a misguided attempt to present a one-sided narrative with the goal of tarnishing Mr. Hammer’s reputation.”

Hammer has also slammed anonymously leaked messages that were allegedly from him as “bulls–t,” and “vicious and spurious online attacks against me.”

He did, however, step away from an upcoming movie with Jennifer Lopez. He said he was leaving the film to spend time with his kids.

Lilly had some controversy of her own last year when she publicly apologized for being dismissive about self-quarantining due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Crisis” hits theaters Feb. 26.
