Yesterday, James Woods tweeted this:

In response to this:

Call Me By Your Name, by the way, is a book about “a love affair between an intellectually precocious 17-year-old American-Italian Jewish boy and a visiting 24-year-old American Jewish scholar in 1980s Italy.” It received raves upon its release, and the movie — starring Armie Hammer — was similarly well received out of Sundance. I don’t think anyone besides James Woods has really made much of an issue about the age difference (the age of consent in Italy is 14). Hammer, by the way, read the audiobook.

Here was Armie Hammer’s response to James Woods.

Burn. And it’s true, Woods did date a 19 year old. Here’s a photo of them together.

Amber Tamblyn later weighed in with a story of her own.

Someone else also weighed in with a similar account:

After getting burnt and outed as a pervy old dude, James Woods — who is DEFINITELY NOT A COCAINE ADDICT — offered up his weak response:

Well, First: Not in Italy, and second: Who are we going to believe? Amber Tamblyn or a guy who is DEFINITELY NOT A COCAINE ADDICT?

Lone Ranger aside, agreed! Also, I really loved James Woods in The Hard Way*! He’s still a shitweasel.

Also, we don’t give a shit what James Woods — who is DEFINITELY NOT A COCAINE ADDICT — thinks either, but the moral high ground doesn’t look good on him.

(*I loved The Hard Way when I was a kid, but I bet it holds up poorly.)
