Elizabeth Perkins Calls Out James Woods at #MeToo March

Elizabeth Perkins named James Woods at the Take Back the Workplace and #MeToo Survivors’ march and rally in Hollywood on Sunday.

Though it is not clear what Perkins is accusing the actor of, she held a sign that read, “James Woods #MeToo.” The “Weeds” actress joined hundreds of survivors who participated in the protest of sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood.

Representatives for Woods have not responded to Variety’s request for comment.

Sparked by the viral #MeToo social media campaign that encouraged women to share stories to demonstrate the prevalence and scope of sexual harassment and assault, the event featured a number of speakers — including Weinstein accuser Lauren Sivan — sharing their stories and addressing the necessity of sexual abuse prevention.

Perkins is not the first to call out Woods’ behavior. In September, Amber Tamblyn accused Woods of misconduct when the actress was 16. Before the Weinstein scandal broke, Tamblyn claimed Woods tried to pick her and her friend up when they were underage.

“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, now 34, wrote in an open letter to Woods.
