When James Woods chose to take a dig at Armie Hammer's film Call Me By Your Name, he probably didn't expect it to backfire.

The film, from acclaimed Italian director Luca Guadagnino (A Bigger Splash, I Am Love), features a romance that develops over a summer in northern Italy between Hammer's 24-year-old research assistant and his employer's 17-year-old son.

"As they quietly chip away the last barriers of decency #NAMBLA", Woods added a comment on top of the RT'd criticism.

On Sunday, James Woods quoted a tweet from author Chad Felix Greene who criticized the age gap between the two characters. Her confession actually came in response to a Twitter conversation between Woods and Hammer!

The now-34-year-old Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants actor was responding to a Twitter spat between Woods (Justice League, Family Guy) and actor Armie Hammer, over a homophobic tweet sent out by the former.

"He wanted to take us to Vegas". She says she told him she was 16, and he allegedly replied: "Even better". "It scared me", Hammer said.
