Daniel Negreanu Unleashes on Perverts Including Fellow Poker Players

  • James Woods named in sign held by Hollywood actress Elizabeth Perkins during march against creeps
  • Fellow poker pro Daniel Negreanu: "Do I believe these women? 1000% yes"
  • Woods, 70, was accused in September of hitting on 16-year-old
  • The Hollywood actor has played in nearly a dozen live poker tournaments this year alone

And the latest adult celeb accused of chasing after underage girls?  That would be Hollywood celebrity James Woods apparently.

Woods just happens to be a professional poker player as well and fellow pro Daniel Negreanu was quick to unleash on him via Twitter late Tuesday night.

“Add James Woods to the list of men accused of chasing 16 year old girls,” Negreanu wrote, linking to an article appearing on the Daily Mail.  “He appears to have a lot in common with Roy Moore. What is wrong with these people? Disgusting. Do I believe these women? 1000% yes.”

Moore is the Alabama Judge running for US Senate to fill the seat of Jeff Session, who joined President Donald Trump’s cabinet as the 84th Attorney General of the United States.

“Weeds” star Elizabeth Perkins marched in a protest against sexual harassment in Hollywood this past Sunday opting to carry a sign that read “James Woods #MeToo”, seemingly implying that Woods was among the offenders. 

Whether the comment referred to her own experience or someone else's was unclear, and a rep for the "Weeds" actress did not immediately respond Tuesday to a request for comment by the Los Angeles Times.

Negreanu's tweet accusing Woods of "chasing 16 year old girls" may be in reference to actress Amber Tamblyn’s September open letter alleging Woods, now 70, hit on her when she was just 16 years old.

Tamblyn wrote at the time:

“My friend Billy and I were at the Roxy on Sunset Boulevard seeing a band we loved. We decided to go to Mel’s diner on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood to get burgers after,” Tamblyn wrote. “Upon leaving the restaurant we were stopped by you and your friend, who both seemed very nice. At one point you suggested we should all go to Las Vegas together. ‘It’s such a great place, have you ever been?’ You tried to make it sound innocent. This is something predatory men like to do, I’ve noticed.”

She continued, “I told you my age, kindly and with no judgment or aggression. I told you my age because I thought you would be immediately horrified and take back your offer. You laughed and said, ‘Even better. We’ll have so much fun, I promise.'”

Woods has played in close to a dozen live poker tournaments since the start of this year alone.
