Amber Tamblyn continues dragging James Woods for being a creep

After James Woods made a homophobic comment about a gay romance portrayed in a forthcoming film, Amber Tamblyn blew up his spot by sharing a story of how he offered to take her to Las Vegas when she was 16. According to Tamblyn, when she told him she was only 16, he responded “even better.” Barf.

Despite the fact that Woods, a guy who has dated 19 and 20-year-olds in his late 50s and 60s, responded by claiming that Tamblyn is lying, the actress came through with receipts.

Now that the story is public, Tamblyn elaborated on the encounter in a scathing open letter to Woods published in Teen Vogue.

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.

My friend Billy and I were at the Roxy on Sunset Boulevard seeing a band we loved. We decided to go to Mel’s diner on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood to get burgers after. I had just gotten my driver’s license and very specifically remember my nervousness trying to park in the diner parking lot. Upon leaving the restaurant we were stopped by you and your friend, who both seemed very nice. At one point you suggested we should all go to Las Vegas together. “It’s such a great place, have you ever been?” You tried to make it sound innocent. This is something predatory men like to do, I’ve noticed. Make it sound innocent. Just a dollop of insinuation. Just a hair of persuasion. Just a pinch of suggestion. “It will be so much fun, I promise you. Nothing has to happen, we will just have a good time together.” I told you my age, kindly and with no judgment or aggression. I told you my age because I thought you would be immediately horrified and take back your offer. You laughed and said, “Even better. We’ll have so much fun, I promise.”

Tamblyn wrote that Woods was so brazen at the time because she was an unknown actress.

“I was just a girl,” Tamblyn wrote. “And I’m going to wager that there have been many girls who were just girls or women who were just women who you’ve done this to because you can get away with it.”

I’d be curious to know how many teenagers have similar allegations that Woods propositioned them.
