Armie Hammer has checked into an in-patient facility for drug, alcohol, and sex issues, according to multiple reports.

The actor, known for his roles in films such as Call Me By Your Name, was spotted leaving the Caymans on May 29; sources confirmed that Hammer was headed to a Florida facility.

"Everyone looks at Armie thinking that he's had some sort of privileged life — and that must mean there were no problems in his youth and everything was peachy keen," Hammer's close friend told Vanity Fair. "But that's not necessarily the way things go. Just because you come from an upbringing where financial resources are plentiful doesn't mean life isn't without problems."

Back in March, Hammer was accused of rape by a 24-year-old woman. At the beginning of the year, disturbing screenshots of messages allegedly sent by Hammer began circulating around the Internet. Hammer denied all accusations.

The OG Coconut Girls. The Blueprint

A few months ago, I rewatched Blue Crush for the first time since I first saw it as a pre-teen.

But what to watch?

HBO has established themselves as always on the cutting edge of television, always pushing the boundaries of representation and chronicling the lives of underrepresented groups — not always, however, but where else would we get our fix of terrible rich white people if not for Succession?

"Happy 40th birthday McLovin," Rogen wrote, with the addendum: "We wrote this joke when we were 14 years old." Happy birthday to our favorite 25-year-old Hawaiian organ donor.

Happy Pride Month to everyone but the brands adding rainbows to their logos

Pose FX

Nobody panic, but they took Moonlight off Netflix.

Maybe it's for the best — who amongst us really needs to go into yet another bout of Barry-Jenkins-fueled melancholy after deciding, against our interests, to turn on Moonlight for the thousandth time? Probably none of us. If that's the journey you need to be on right now, however, don't worry, Moonlight is currently streaming on other platforms, so godspeed.
