James Woods says retirement announcement was a mistake

Oscar-nominated actor James Woods says his career is not going to end in a real estate announcement. However Woods tells The Washington Post on Saturday that last week’s announcement was a mistake. Gammons had said the decision wasn’t political. A press release offering Woods’ Rhode Island lake house for sale had included news he was retiring. 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 hoped to spend more time on other passions. 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. Woods called it a lie on Twitter. © The Associated Press, 2017 Woods says his real estate agent, Allen Gammons, had read him a draft of the release but he “somehow didn’t hear ‘retirement.'”
Gammons said Friday that Woods is 70 and wants to relax.
