WOODS LAT­EST IN CLAIMS

Herald Sun - - CONFIDENTIAL -

AC­TOR Elizabeth Perkins called out James Woods when she joined hun­dreds at the #MeToo march in Hol­ly­wood to protest sex­ual ha­rass­ment.

The Weeds ac­tor held up a white sign with, “James Woods #MeToo” on it as she stood among pro­test­ers, in­clud­ing Har­vey We­in­stein ac­cuser Lau­ren Si­van.

The Take Back the Work­place March and #MeToo Sur­vivors March took to the streets on Sun­day.

Perkins isn’t the only ac­tor who has called out Woods. Am­ber Tam­blyn tweeted in Septem­ber, claim­ing that Woods “tried to pick” her and her friend up at a restau­rant when she was 16.

When she told him her age, he al­legedly re­sponded, “Even bet­ter.” The ac­tor replied to a tweet by a user ques­tion­ing him about the ac­cu­sa­tion, say­ing Tam­blyn was ly­ing about the in­ci­dent.

Or­gan­is­ers es­ti­mated there were about 200 to 300 at­ten­dees, but ac­knowl­edged it was “dif­fi­cult to tell” given the nor­mal Hol­ly­wood Boule­vard crowds.
