Yesterday, James Woods tweeted this:
In response to this:
24 year old man.— Chad Felix Greene (@chadfelixg) September 11, 2017
17 year old boy.
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.
Didn't you date a 19 year old when you were 60…….?— Armie Hammer (@armiehammer) September 11, 2017
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.
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.— Amber Tamblyn (@ambertamblyn) September 11, 2017
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:
What makes a 24yo/17yo gay relationship inherently indecent but skeevy old guys trying to pick up a pair of 16 year old girls is okay?— Amanda Kendall (@_pochemuchka_) September 12, 2017
The first is illegal. The second is a lie. https://t.co/0jD1dvtInC— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) September 12, 2017
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?
Somebody told me the libs are yelping. Troll traffic is up. I don't pay any attention really. I like Armie Hammer as an actor though. A lot. https://t.co/okSCVKeAnj— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) September 12, 2017
Lone Ranger aside, agreed! Also, I really loved James Woods in The Hard Way*! He’s still a shitweasel.
Okay, now I want all my little trolls to put on their onesies and go to bed! Final word on this: I don't give a shit what liberals think.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) September 12, 2017
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.)
