Does Armie Hammer come from a rich family?
Armie is named after his great-grandfather, Armand Hammer, who is responsible for the Hammer family’s immense wealth.
Armand was one of the most famous and prosperous industrialists of his time, despite not being well known today.
According to his obituary in the L.A. Times, Armand sold whiskey to drugstores during Prohibition and became millionaire before receiving his college diploma.
Four years prior to his passing, in 1986, Armand’s worth was roughly $200 million, according to Forbes. Despite the legacy of his namesake, Armie attributes all of his accomplishments to his own diligence.
In a 2012 interview, he claimed to be “not in any way supported by family money.” I provide for myself. Together, my wife and I make up our entire household. I’m very pleased with that.
