Amber Tamblyn pens poignant op-ed about James Woods 'culture'

17 Septembre 2017

Tamblyn wrote in the Times.

Tamblyn ended her piece with a rallying cry to fellow women, writing, "We are learning that the more we open our mouths, the more we become a choir". When she was starring in the series Joan of Arcadia as a 21 year-old, Tamblyn said that's when she first faced an on-set harassment problem with one of the show's crew members.

After hearing her account, the producer allegedly told Tamblyn, "Well, there are two sides to every story".

"For women in America who come forward with stories of harassment, abuse and sexual assault, there are not two sides to every story, however noble that principle might seem", Tamblyn wrote.

For Tamblyn, Woods' denial of the experience is part of a larger pattern where "w$3 omen do not get to have a side". They get to have an interrogation.

"Mr. Woods attempted to pick me and a friend up when we were at Mel's diner in Hollywood, seeing if we wanted to go to Las Vegas with him that very night. Especially if that side happens to accuse a man of stature, then that woman has to consider the scrutiny and repercussions she'll be subjected to by sharing her side".

Earlier this week Amber got into a Twitter argument with the outspoken actor after he took to Twitter to himself criticize the upcoming movie Call Me By Your Name, which stars Armie Hammer as a 24-year-old professor who falls in love with his 17-year-old male student, played by Timothée Chalamet. Hammer dropped the hammer when referenced how Woods began dating a 20-year-old woman when he was 66.

"In an instant, I was reminded of a memory from when I was 16", Tamblyn wrote of this situation. When she told Woods of her age, Tamblyn claims the actor responded, "Even better".

The show's producers, as Tamblyn writes, responded by saying, "There are two sides to each story".

Mr. Woods's accusation that I was lying sent me back to that day in that producer's office, and back to all the days I've spent in the offices of men; of feeling unsure, uneasy, questioned and disbelieved, no matter the conversation.
"The women I know are done, though, playing the credentials game", she concludes.
