Armie Hammer and Amber Tamblyn Call out James Wood for Hypocritical Comments

Armie Hammer and Amber Tamblyn Call out James Wood for Hypocritical Comments

The film, which is receiving Oscar buzz ahead of its November 24 release, tells the story of a teenage boy (Timothée Chalamet) who falls in love with his father's 24-year-old teaching assistant, played by Hammer.

"As they quietly chip away the last barriers of decency #NAMBLA", Woods added a comment on top of the RT'd criticism.

Actor Armie Hammer, who plays the older character in the film, responded to Woods on Twitter by saying: "Didn't you date a 19 year old when you were 60.?" Armie revealed later that James had blocked him on the micro-blogging site and asked whether Amber had received the same treatment.

The inciting incident was a Sunday tweet from Woods commenting on a gay conservative's opinion that Hammer's new movie "Call Me by Your Name" celebrates adults having sex with teens. "I'm 16" I said.

Woods hit back at The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants actress, dismissing her recollection as "a lie", but Tamblyn is refusing to back down, responding to the denial by quipping, "Life comes at you fast, James". When she told him she was 16, he said, "Even better".

Woods denies the story took place, of course, but the story's out there. Woods later dropped the suit after receiving a letter signed by the user acknowledging that he didn't know if Woods used cocaine.

People lived for Hammer's response. James was 59 when he began his seven-year relationship with then 19-year-old Ashley Madison. After an Orange County family shared a photo of themselves and their son at a Pride event, Woods posted: "This is sweet".
