James Woods says he’s re­tir­ing from film (and sell­ing house)

The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - KICKOFF -

PROV­I­DENCE, R.I — Os­car-nom­i­nated ac­tor James Woods says he’s re­tir­ing from the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try.

The news was in­cluded in a press re­lease is­sued by Woods’ real es­tate agent of­fer­ing Woods’ Rhode Is­land lake house for sale.

Allen Gam­mons said Fri­day that Woods is 70 and wants to re­lax. He says the ac­tor’s brother and mother re­cently died, and he hopes to spend more time on pas­sions in­clud­ing pho­tog­ra­phy, an­tiquing and poker.

Woods is known for his con­ser­va­tive po­lit­i­cal views.

He has said that’s made it tough to find work in Hol­ly­wood.

Gam­mons said Woods’ de­ci­sion was not po­lit­i­cal.

Ac­tress Am­ber Tam­blyn last month said Woods tried to pick her up when she was 16. Woods called a lie on Twit­ter. Gam­mons said Woods de­clined to com­ment Fri­day when asked about Tam­blyn’s ac­cu­sa­tion.

James Woods poses at the pre­miere of the film “Bleed for This” at the Sa­muel Gold­wyn Theater in Bev­erly Hills, Calif., in 2016.
