Armie Hammer's wife, Elizabeth Chambers, is suing someone who allegedly used her name to score an invite to the Vanity Fair Oscar party.
The Vanity Fair gala is considered the biggest and most star-studded bash of the Academy Awards.
TMZ obtained the documents that revealed the 35-year-old actress is claiming that Diana Roque Ellis reached out to Vanity Fair in an email with her name in an attempt to secure an invitation.
Ellis allegedly pretended that the sender was Chambers herself, asking the party planners if it would be possible for them to provide another invitation for the Hammer couple. When asked for the name of their additional guest, the sender responded with Ellis's name.
To make the request appear more authentic, Chambers said that Ellis used her family's home address.
Apparently, the Vanity Fair team became suspicious after they were informed in the email that Ellis will be arriving to the party separately. The sender also asked for the invite to be sent to her directly.
Chambers is asking for damages over misappropriation of her name as well as an injunction that prevents Ellis from using her name again.
Chambers On The Oscars
While the lawsuit may be new to Chambers, the occasional actress is used to the awards show chaos. She may spend a lot of time running her Texas-based Bird Bakery business, but every year, she's beside Hammer for the Vanity Fair party, and the couple went to the awards show when he first broke into the scene for The Social Network.
This year, Hammer stars alongside Timothée Chalamet in Best Picture nominee Call Me by Your Name. For her part, Chambers reveals she's just ready to be her husband's arm-candy during the weekend.
"There are so many festivities all week and weekend," Chambers says about the Oscars in an interview with W Magazine. "It's so much fun seeing friends out, and everyone has this festive spirit. It's truly a weekend of celebration. I love films. I've seen all of the contenders."
Directed by Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino, Call Me by Your Name took the industry by storm and is killing the awards circuit. Not only has the movie snagged a nomination for Best Picture, but 22-year-old Chalamet also gets to mark his first Oscar outing with a nomination for Best Actor. Call Me by Your Name is also nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Song.
