Armie Hammer, Amber Tamblyn call out James Woods for hypocritical tweet

Adjust Comment Print

The now-34-year-old Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants actor was responding to a Twitter spat between Woods (Justice League, Family Guy) and actor Armie Hammer, over a homophobic tweet sent out by the former.

Tamblyn then joined the fray by claiming, "James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once".

(Woods turned 70 earlier this year.) And also began dating his previous girlfriend when she was 19 or 20, and he was (as Hammer points out) 60. "Even better' he said".

"He wanted to take us to Vegas".

Woods denied the allegations, writing, "The first is illegal". The film follows the relationship between Hammer's 24-year-old character and his on-screen 17-year-old boyfriend (Timothée Chalamet). "I'm 16" I said.

Hammer responded by pointing out the hypocrisy of calling out one age gap when Woods himself is no stranger to them. She alleged Woods defamed her by sharing and commenting on a tweet that wrongly identified her as a woman who gave what looked like a "Nazi" salute at a 2016 Donald Trump campaign rally.

Call Me By Your Name will also star Timothée Chalamet as Elio when it is released on 27 October in the United Kingdom and the 24 November in the US.

"Somebody told me the libs (liberals) are yelping (over his initial tweet)". Troll traffic is up.

When asked by another fan about Tamblyn's accusation, Woods said: "I think maybe she should stick to 'feminist poetry.' Fiction isn't her forte".

Even without James' stamp of approval, "Call Me by My Name" received huge applause at the Toronto Film Festival.
