When a user named Amanda Kendall asked Woods why a gay relationship between a 24-year-old and a 17-year-old is indecent, but it's OK for "skeevy old guys" to try and pick up a pair of 16-year-olds, Woods responded: "The first is illegal".

'As they quietly chip away the last barriers of decency.

The actor was referring to Woods having dated Ashley Madison when she was 19, before moving on to Kristen Bauguess, who was 20 when he began dating her at the age of 66.

"He wanted to take us to Vegas. And I had images of my daughter being at school, and she's 13 years old, and people are teasing her and printing out pictures of my penis and, I thought, 'Oh man!'"

Tamblyn, 34, also shared a photo of her text message exchange with the friend who had reportedly witnessed the failed pick-up attempt. "I'm 16" I said.

Woods denied the allegations on his Twitter late Monday night, calling Tamblyn's story "a lie".

The government had asked for a "temporary administrative stay" to give the justices time to consider the issue. Trump clarified that these clocks would begin ticking as soon as the policy was allowed to go into effect.


Armie Hammer - who plays Oliver in the film - was quick to respond though - and in epic style, may we add.

Following the spat, Woods wrote: "Somebody told me the libs are yelping". I don't pay any attention really.

"Final word on this", he tweeted before dropping off Twitter for the day, "I don't give a sh- what liberals think".

Even without James' stamp of approval, "Call Me by My Name" received huge applause at the Toronto Film Festival.

The inciting incident was a Sunday tweet from Woods commenting on a gay conservative's opinion that Hammer's new movie "Call Me by Your Name" celebrates adults having sex with teens.
