Amber Tamblyn is not one to keep quiet, no matter which biggie from the industry tries to shush her up. After the Twitter battle that broke out when Amber pointed out that actor James Woods hit on her when she was a minor, he called her a liar and she penned an open letter to the actor along with alleged proof that she wasn’t lying and recently wrote and op-ed piece in the New York Times.

In the article titled I’m Done With Not Being Believed, the actress explains that when she went to a producer to complain that she was being harassed by a crew member, the producer just said, “Well there are two sides to every story.”

 

In the article, Amber writes, “For women in America who come forward with stories of harassment, abuse and sexual assault, there are not two sides to every story, however noble that principle might seem. Women do not get to have a side. They get to have an interrogation.” She went on, “Mr. Woods’s accusation that I was lying sent me back to that day in that producer’s office, and back to all the days I’ve spent in the offices of men; of feeling unsure, uneasy, questioned and disbelieved, no matter the conversation. I have been afraid of speaking out or asking things of men in positions of power for years. What I have experienced as an actress working in a business whose business is to objectify women is frightening. It is the deep end of a pool where I cannot swim. It is a famous man telling you that you are a liar for what you have remembered. For what you must have misremembered, unless you have proof.”
