Lena Dunham’s probably not going to Las Vegas with James Woods anytime soon.
The “Girls” star just chimed in on the “Casino” actor’s war of words with Amber Tamblyn. Retweeting TheWrap‘s recent post on the spat, Dunham posted this:

Tamblyn appreciated that sentiment via a RT (one that actually does equal endorsement) of her own. Woods was probably less amused.
This whole thing started with — guess what? — another retweet. That one was by Woods, and it centered on some disgust yet another Twitter user felt from the plot of Armie Hammer’s “Call Me By Your Name,” which features a 17-year-old boy having an affair with his father’s 24-year-old male friend.
“As they quietly chip away the last barriers of decency #NAMBLA,” Woods added a comment on top of the RT’d criticism.
Hammer fired right back with this (yes, also on Twitter): “Didn’t you date a 19 year old when you were 60…?”
Point, Armie. The “Man From U.N.C.L.E.” alum was referring to Woods’ reported relationship with Kristen Bauguess, who was actually 20 at the time they began dating in 2013. Woods was 66 though.
That’s when Tamblyn jumped in, posting this under Hammer’s initial counterpoint:
James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once. He wanted to take us to Vegas. "I'm 16" I said. "Even better" he said.

Woods later called Tamblyn’s story “a lie.” And that pretty much brings you up to speed on this spat.
Here's Who Should Play the Kids From 'It' as Adults in 'Chapter 2' (and Who Really Is Playing Them)
Let’s do some casting inspired by Stephen King’s classic horror novel
Stephen King's novel "It" is actually two parallel stories, about a group of seven kids fighting the monstrous clown Pennywise, and then returning to finish the job as adults. With "It: Chapter One" a huge horror movie success, here's who we think should pick up the reins in "It: Chapter Two."
