Do not come for Armie Hammer’s film, or he will come for you in the event that you’ve got a funny love life yourself.
That was a very unique lesson James Woods hopefully learned whenever the actors participated in a tense exchange online Monday, after Woods criticized the romance within Hammer’s critically acclaimed film Call Me by The Name.
“As they quietly chip off the barriers of decency. #NAMBLA,” Woods wrote, talking about age gap between Hammer’s character, a 24 year old and 17-year-old played by Timothée Chalamet in the film. Woods also took the attempt to tag the North American Man/Boy Love Association–an organization which advocates for pedophilia.
By bringing up the actor history hammer was not here for this, and came for Woods.
“Didn’t you date a 19 year old when you were 60…. ?” Hammer wrote, referencing Woods’ penchant. Reports Through the Years have indicated Woods outdated a 20 year old while he was 66 years old.
Didn’t you date a 19 year old when you were 60…. . ?

Actress Amber Tamblyn also chimed in encouraging Hammer with her own narrative. “James Woods attempted to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once. He wished to take us. ‘I am 16’ I stated. ‘Even better’ he stated,” she wrote on Twitter.

She pulled a screenshot of a text message conversation up to confirm the credibility of her narrative. “Since I know people like to question the ethics and honesty of girls when they come forward with tales like this, here you go,” she wrote.
Woods hasn’t reacted to Tamblyn or Hammer’s tweets specifically, but in tweets following the incident, talked about trolls and praised Hammer abilities.
Okay, now I want all of my little trolls go to bed and to put on their onesies! Last word on this: ” I don’t give a shit what liberals believe.
