Amber Tamblyn wrote a scorching open letter to James Woods calling him 'predatory' and a 'silencer'Get the Full StoryFrazer Harrison Getty ImagesAmber Tamblyn wrote a scathing open letter to James Woods, published in Teen Vogue Wednesday, following a heated back and forth between the two on Twitter.
After Woods made a snide comment on Twitter about the age difference between two romantic leads in the new film "Call Me by Your Name" Sunday, a slew of celebrities called Woods hypocritical, as the actor famously dated a 19 year old when he was 60.
One of the celebrities who called the actor out was Tamblyn.
Tamblyn alleged that Woods had hit on her when she was 16.
Woods denied Tamblyn's claim that he had hit on her, and called her story a "lie." Tamblyn fired back with a screenshot of a text between her and her friend "Billy," referring to the alleged time that Woods hit on them when they were underage.
Now, Tamblyn has issued a more in-depth response to Woods in her open letter, which describes her alleged teenage interaction with Woods in more detail.
Tamblyn opens her letter by calling Woods a "silencer." "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," Tamblyn writes.
Tamblyn continues to describe Woods' insistence that they travel to Las Vegas together when she was 16, saying that the innocent cadence of his request mirrors the actions of "predatory men."
"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 also says in her letter that Woods calling her story a "lie" plays into the larger societal problem of women's stories being repudiated by men.
"The saddest part of this story doesn't even concern me but concerns the universal woman's story. The nation's harmful narrative of disbelieving women first, above all else. Asking them to first corroborate or first give proof or first make sure we're not misremembering or first consider the consequences of speaking out or first let men give their side or first just let your sanity come last."
Woods has yet to respond to Tamblyn's letter.
