Amber Tamblyn has wandered into the spat between James Woods and Armie Hammer over the gay romance movie “Call Me by Your Name.”
After Hammer issued a scathing response to Woods’ criticism of the drama, in which Hammer plays an older man who embarks on a romantic journey with a younger teenager, “127 Hours” actress Tamblyn lobbed a hand grenade into the social-media back-and-forth, accusing Woods of trying to pick her up when she was just 16 years old.
The tiff between Hammer and Woods began Sunday, when Woods retweeted conservative writer and commentator Chad Felix Greene’s status, which read, “24 year old man. 17 year old boy. Stop.” Woods added, “As they quietly chip away at the last barriers of decency. #NAMBLA”
On Monday, Hammer shot back, “Didn’t you date a 19 year old when you were 60…….?”
According to Business Insider, Woods started dating Ashley Madison when she was just 19 years old. He was 59 at the time. They split seven years later, and Woods started dating 20-year-old Kristen Bauguess when he was 66. According to multiple media reports, the couple are still together.
After Hammer’s riposte, Tamblyn thrust herself into the conversation with her bombshell.
“James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once. He wanted to take us to Vegas. ‘I’m 16’ I said. ‘Even better’ he said,” Tamblyn wrote in response to Hammer’s tweet.
Tamblyn is currently 34, while Woods is now 70, which would have made the “Once Upon a Time in America” actor more than three times Tamblyn’s age when the alleged proposition was made.
So far Woods has not issued a response via his Twitter account, and a representative for the actor has not responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
