Armie Hammer had the setup, but Amber Tamblyn had the KILLSHOT on James Woods

On Sunday “conservative” actor James Woods commented on Hammer’s new movie, “Call Me by Your Name”

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 abroad one summer.

Woods’ Twitter comment was appalling, touching the third rail that is the North American Man/Boy Love Assn.: “As they quietly chip away the last barriers of decency. #NAMBLA.”

That earned him a slap Monday morning from Hammer, who tweeted at the conservative actor, “Didn’t you date a 19 year old when you were 60…….?”

Then actess Amber Tamblyn jumped in tweeting, “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.”

When asked  how a relationship between a 24-year-old and a 17-year-old was different from what Tamblyn had accused him of doing, the 70-year-old Woods  replied, “The first is illegal. The second is a lie.”

Tamblyn posted a screen grab of a text exchange with a friend that supportted her story.

Woods then shut down the conversation tweeting , “Okay, now I want all my little trolls to put on their onesies and go to bed! Final word on this: I don’t [care] what liberals think.”
