(Amber Tamblyn married Scary Movie 2 and Arrested Development star David Cross in 2012).

In an open letter to Woods published Wednesday by Teen Vogue, she wrote, "Since you've now called me a liar, I will now call you a silencer". "She has chosen to continue speaking against James Woods because she "[had] been afraid of speaking out or asking things of men in positions of power for years", but now believes "[women] are learning that the more we open our mouths, the more we become a choir.

In her Times piece, Tamblyn wrote that, at the age of 21, while starring on a popular TV series - presumably Joan Of Arcadia - she went to a producer's office to complain about the scary behaviour of a particular person on set. She reported this to a producer, who claimed "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. "Women do not get to have a side". They get to have an interrogation.

Woods denied Tamblyn's allegations, calling it "a lie" and forcing Tamblyn to post a text message from her friend recalling the story as proof. "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". "I'm 16" I said.

Tamblyn first shared her story of Woods after he criticized the upcoming film Call Me By Your Name for featuring a 24-year-old grad student falling in love with his professor's 17-year-old son.

In recent days, Tamblyn was called a liar by Woods, who started a recent situation on social media.

After seeing the negative tweet, Armie replied, "Didn't you date a 19 year old when you were 60.?"

James responded by saying, "The first is illegal". "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", she wrote. "The women I know are done, though, playing the credentials game", she concludes.
