Actor James Woods says he’s retiring from Hollywood

Woods is known for his conservative political views and has said that’s made it tough to find work in Hollywood. He says the actor’s brother and mother recently died, and he hopes to spend more time on passions including photography, antiquing and poker. Gammons said Woods declined to comment Friday when asked about Tamblyn’s accusation.

Actress Amber Tamblyn last month said Woods tried to pick her up when she was 16. Oscar-nominated actor James Woods, known for films such as Chaplin, Casino and Ghosts of Mississippi, says he’s retiring from the entertainment industry. Gammons said Woods’ decision was not political. Allen Gammons said Friday that Woods is 70 and wants to relax.
