Woods later tweeted that Tamblyn was lying after responding to a Twitter user who questioned if he was in a position to criticize the age difference between Hammer’s 24-year-old character and his on-screen 17-year-old boyfriend.

The Twitter user wrote: “What makes a 24yo/17yo gay relationship inherently indecent but skeevy old guys trying to pick up a pair of 16 year old girls is okay?”

“The first is illegal. The second is a lie,” Woods responded.

Tamblyn took to Twitter again to back up her claim, sharing a screenshot of a text conversation that appeared to shows her friend corroborating her story.

“Since I know people love to question the [integrity] and honesty of women when they come forward with stories like this, here you go,” the actress tweeted alongside the texts that show the friend remembering the incident after Tamblyn brings it up.

Woods — most known for roles in Casino, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, The Virgin Suicides and Videodrome — announced his plans to retire from acting via his real estate agent when he put his Exeter, Rhode Island, property up for sale.

Agent Allen Gammons told the Providence Journal, that the actor is “retiring from the entertainment industry and seeking to ‘simplify his life’ by selling ‘his many real estate holdings on both coasts.’ ”

Gammons revealed the actor’s brother and mother recently died, and that he hoped to spend time on photography, antiquing and playing Texas Hold’em poker, according to the Journal. Woods owns four homes in Rhode Island.
