Amber Tamblyn Is Putting Hollywood's History of Harassment on Blast

Postado Setembro 17, 2017

"James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once", Tamblyn wrote. While leaving Mel's, they encountered Woods, who asked the two of them if they wanted to accompany him to Las Vegas.

According to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants alum, a male crew member had been making her feel "unsafe" at the time - "showing up to [her] apartment after work unannounced, going into [her] trailer while [she] wasn't in it, and staring daggers at [her] from across the set".

This clear disregard for believing the woman's side, Tamblyn said, ties into her current situation with Woods.

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". In response, Armie Hammer, who plays the older man in the film, called Woods out for dating a 19-year-old when Woods was 60. I informed him of my age, to which he said, 'Even better.' I told this story publicly as a way to back up the claim that Mr. Woods was, indeed, a hypocrite. Woods denied that this "troll" story ever occurred, which prompted Tamblyn to pen an open letter about Woods and misogyny in Teen Vogue.

She also managed to get in a pretty solid burn to those accusing her of seeking attention, saying: "why would I choose the guy from Scary Movie 2 to help my stature when I'm already married to the other guy from Scary Movie 2?" "Notoriety, power or respect?"

She added, "Mr. Woods' 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".

Tamblyn continued, "I have been afraid of speaking out or asking things of men in positions of power for years". "What I have experienced as an actress working in a business whose business is to objectify women is frightening". It is the deep end of a pool where I can not swim. "For what you must have misremembered, unless you have proof". "And the more we are a choir, the more the tune is forced to change".
