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.”
Since I know people love to question the intengrity and honesty of women when they come forward with stories like this, here you go. pic.twitter.com/rchYilrjuZ
