Amber Tamblyn, Armie Hammer slam James Woods for age gap double standard

Amber Tamblyn, Armie Hammer slam James Woods for age gap double standard

This whole thing started with - guess what?

In "Call Me by Your Name", Hammer, 31, portrays a 24-year-old graduate student who has a romantic and physical relationship with the 17-year-old son of a professor who is hosting him for six weeks overseas one summer. But despite his reputation for womanising and general hellraising, Woods decided a holier-than-thou response was called for, tweeting about the film, "As they quietly chip away the last barriers of decency".

The timeline of events on Monday saw Woods retweeting a jab at the Oscar-buzzing film, about a romantic affair between a 17-year-old boy and his father's 24-year-old assistant in Italy.

Woods later dated Kristen Bauguess in 2013, when Woods was 66 and Bauguess was 20.

- In May, Woods posted a crude and homophobic tweet in response to CNN anchor Anderson Cooper rolling his eyes at comments made by White House senior Kellyanne Conway during a live exchange on former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey. "Even better" he said", the actress wrote.

It is worth mentioning that while 17 is below the age of consent in most USA states, the age of consent in Italy (where the film takes place) is 14.

Veteran actor James Woods has chosen to ignore the growing controversy surrounding Amber Tamblyn's allegation he once tried to hit on the then-16-year-old and take her to Las Vegas. "I'm 16" I said.

James Woods says Amber Tamblyn's story about his alleged attempted pick-up is "a lie". "Troll traffic is up", he wrote.

Hammer appears in Call Me By Your Name, a coming-of-age drama directed by Luca Guadagnino and adapted from the novel of the same name by André Aciman.

One Woods' fan showed support on social media writing, "How much crap did you get for voicing the truth about Armie's new movie? Final word on this: I don't [care] what liberals think".
