‘Pretty’ pranky

Wood, Woods recall school days at pic's bow

HOLLYWOOD — School can be cruel, especially if James Woods was in your class.

At the premiere of “Pretty Persuasion,” in which Evan Rachel Wood plays a manipulative high school hellion, the pic’s stars recalled their own teen days, with Woods admitting he was a bully.

“There was a kid named Jimmy Thorton. We’d ‘pants’ him all the time,” the thesp said at the pic’s Arclight bow.

“Every day, my friends and I would take his pants off and roll him down a hill outside the girl’s gym. Now I feel bad about it,” said Woods

Perhaps compensating for his wicked past, Woods assisted in crowd control at the preem’s overbooked screening by directing people to open seats.

Actress Wood vouches she never locked the ugly girl in the boy’s locker room. “I was that ugly girl,” she said.
