"Since you've now called me a liar, I will now call you a silencer. I see your gaslight and now will raise you a scorched earth," the actress writes.

Amber Tamblyn isn't done with James Woods yet.

After the actor called the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" star a liar for saying he once propositioned her with a trip to Las Vegas when she was just 16 years old, the actress retaliated with a scathing open letter to Woods in Teen Vogue.

"What you are experiencing is called a teachable moment. It is called a gift. It is called a humbling. It is called Jesus, I come to thee. It is called an awakening. It is called a growth edge. It is called hope," she wrote. "The hope being that through this experience, you can change. You can redefine the man who will come after this moment and this man who came before."

"Since you've now called me a liar, I will now call you a silencer. I see your gaslight and now will raise you a scorched earth," she wrote.

Tamblyn revealed more details about the night he allegedly approached her and a friend while leaving Mel's Diner on a Sunday following a concert at The Roxy.

Though she said he seemed "very nice," she added "at one point you suggested we should all go to Las Vegas together."

"'It's such a great place, have you ever been?'" she said he asked. "You tried to make it sound innocent. This is something predatory men like to do, I've noticed. Make it sound innocent. Just a dollop of insinuation. Just a hair of persuasion. Just a pinch of suggestion. 'It will be so much fun, I promise you. Nothing has to happen, we will just have a good time together.' 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.'"

Tamblyn said he wouldn't have recognized her looking back because she wasn't a "known actress" yet. "But I wasn't known then, James. I was just a girl," she added, "And I'm going to wager that there have been many girls who were just girls or women who were just women who you've done this to because you can get away with it."

She ended the letter with a plea for the actor to ask himself on question: "Are you and your history with women and girls a part of the problem, Mr. Woods?"

ICYMI: Woods first sparked backlash after criticizing the romance between a 17-year-old boy and 24-year-old man in Armie Hammer's film "Call Me By My Name," saying the storyline chips away "the last barriers of decency" and adding the hashtag for NAMBLA. Hammer responded by calling out Woods for dating a 19-year-old when he was 59, and Tamblyn chimed in saying the actor invited her to Las Vegas when she was just 16 years old.

He later tweeted the following about the allegations:
