James Woods ‘tried to pick’ up Amber Tamblyn at 16


James Woods ‘tried to pick’ up Amber Tamblyn at 16


Amber Tamblyn, a 34-year-old actress, has accused James Woods of trying to pick her up when she was underage.

Tamblyn responded to an insult Woods hurled at Armie Hammer’s new movie, Call Me By Your Name, earlier in the day.

Woods had criticized the age gap between Hammer’s 24-year-old character and his on-screen 17-year-old boyfriend, saying that it was chipping away at decency.

“James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once,” Tamblyn wrote on Twitter Monday.

“He wanted to take us to Vegas. ‘I’m 16’ I said. ‘Even better’ he said.”

Woods later tweeted that Tamblyn was lying after responding to a Twitter user who questioned if he was in a position to criticize the age difference between Hammond’s 24-year-old character and his on-screen 17-year-old boyfriend.

“The first is illegal. The second is a lie,” Woods responded.

Hammer quickly responded, calling out the actor for dating 19-year-old Ashley Madison when Woods was 59 for more than six years starting in 2007.

He later broke up with Madison and started dating 20-year-old Kristen Bauguess in 2013 when he was 66.

Tamblyn continued to discuss her experience with Woods, writing, “He tried to pick me and a friend up when we were 16.”

She added, “I don’t necessarily think of this as sexual harassment, though I don’t know what else you’d call it.”

Call Me By Your Name has been earning rave reviews and Oscar buzz at the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend.

Hammer admitted at a Q&A after a screening at the festival that he took on the role of the grad student who falls in love with his professor’s son because it made brought him out of his comfort zone.

“To be perfectly honest, I think the reason I took this movie, and the reason I had to take this movie, is that it scared me,” he said.

“It made me uncomfortable, it challenged me, and it pushed me. I couldn’t be more thankful for the experience.”

Woods had earlier tweeted that the age gap between Hammer’s character and his on-screen boyfriend was “NAMBLA,” an acronym for the North American Man/Boy Love Association, a pedophilia advocacy organization.

Many social media users were outraged by Woods’ comments. “James Woods tried to pick up a 16 year old at a restaurant,” wrote one user. “

He called a gay relationship with an age gap pedophilia. I can’t imagine the mental gymnastics required to defend him at this point.”

Others praised Tamblyn for speaking out against Woods. “Thank you for sharing that story,” wrote one user. “James Woods’ behavior is disgusting.”

This isn’t the first time Woods has been criticized for his comments on social media.

Earlier this year, he tweeted that transgender children were being used as “weapons of mass destruction” against traditional values.

Despite the backlash, Woods has remained unapologetic. “I’m OK being known as someone who spoke out against the sexualization of young boys,” he tweeted.

“If you’re OK with it, that says more about you than me.”

Woods has a history of making controversial comments on Twitter. In 2017, he was accused of homophobia for criticizing the movie, “Call Me By Your Name,” which depicts a romantic relationship between two men.

After being accused of trying to pick up Tamblyn, Woods denied the allegations and called them a “lie.”

In a follow-up tweet, he said, “Somebody told me the libs are yelping. Oops, I missed it. I was busy being a man, you know, since they no longer exist.”

Tamblyn, who is now 38 years old, responded to Woods’ tweet, saying, “Since you’ve now called me a liar, I will now call you a silencer. I see your gaslight and now will raise you a scorched earth.”

She went on to say that she didn’t want to engage with Woods any further, but wanted to use her platform to speak out against sexual harassment and assault.

“I have no interest in quarreling with you, James. But I will not stop calling out the predatory behavior of powerful men.

I will not stop organizing for a society that is safe for all women and girls.

And I will not stop supporting survivors,” Tamblyn tweeted.

Many Twitter users have since come to Tamblyn’s defense and have criticized Woods for his behavior.

Some have also pointed out that this is not the first time Woods has been accused of inappropriate conduct.

In 2017, actress Amber Dixon Brenner accused Woods of trying to pick her up when she was 16. Woods denied the allegations, but Brenner stood by her story.

“He has said these things to me over and over again when he’s seen me out, and he’s done it in front of other people,” Brenner said in an interview with People.

“I don’t know if he remembers me, but I remember him very well.”
