Amber Tamblyn Follows Up James Woods Denial: ‘Women Do Not Get to Have a Side’

Amber Tamblyn has followed up her recent Teen Vogue open letter to James Woods with an impassioned editorial that says women have had enough of not being believed.

In the New York Times op-ed piece, Tamblyn writes that “Too often, they are questioned mercilessly about whether their side is legitimate.”

She starts the editorial with an emotional anecdote of a TV producer who listens to her difficult-to-recount story of being harassed by a crew member, with the producer concluding, “Well, there are two sides to every story.”

“Mr. Woods’s accusations that I was lying sent me back to that day in that producer’s office,” she wrote.

The 34-year old actress was angered by 70-year old actor James Woods, who had commented on Twittere on the age difference between the actors in “Call Me By Your Name,” starring Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet. She suggested that Woods had no right to talk since he had tried to invite her to Las Vegas when she was just 16 years old. Woods denies that this happened.

“I have been afraid of speaking out or asking things of men in positions of power for years,” Tamblyn writes. “The women I know are done, though, playing the credentials game,” she concludes. “We are learning that the more we open our mouths, the more we become a choir.”
