James Woods is a Bad Guy. He also plays one on screen. The ultra-conservative and intensely outspoken actor is making waves again for his unjust comments, this time about the age difference between gay characters in an upcoming movie. Actress Amber Tamblyn stepped in to show the world just how hypocritical (and super gross) Woods is being. But Tamblyn wasn't the only celebrity to get involved...
James Woods has quite a reputation.

And his latest attack is stunning for one reason — it's amazingly hypocritical nature.
Call Me By Your Name is a huge hit on the festival circuit. The film, which stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network), is a romantic drama about a graduate student who falls in love with his professor’s underage son.
It’s a story involving a 24-year-old man falling for a 17-year-old, and some took issue with the film.
Chief among those detractors was James Woods.
In response to Chad Felix Greene’s tweet, Woods tweeted, “As they quietly chip away the last barriers of decency. #NAMBLA”
“NAMBLA” refers to the North American Man/Boy Love Association, which is a pedophile advocacy group that works to abolish age-of-consent laws — it’s a dangerous organization that has no affiliation with the LGBT community.
Armie Hammer, who stars in the film in question, clapped back immediately.
“Didn’t you date a 19-year-old when you were 60…….?” he replied to Woods.
But did he?
Yup, in fact, he did.

James Woods started dating Ashley Madison (pictured above and yes, that’s actually her name) when she was 19 and he was 60. They broke up when he was 66, and then he started dating 20-year-old felon, Kristen Bauguess.
The guy has a habit of dating much younger women, which makes his complaints about a 7-year age gap between movie characters just a tad inappropriate.
But that’s not even close to where this story ends…
