Oscar-nominated actor James Woods says he doesn’t use cocaine — so he’s suing an anonymous Twitter troll for $10 million for making that “outrageous” allegation. In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles, the 68-year-old star of films such as “Casino” and “Videodrome” says he wants the unnamed Twitter user — referred to as “AL” — to pay damages for a tweet that said “cocaine addict James Woods still sniffing and spouting.” Woods is suing for defamation and invasion of privacy by false light for the message that was broadcast to “thousands of AL’s followers and hundreds of thousands of Mr. Woods followers,” according to the suit. AL’s actual identity is not known — and the related account, @abelisted (Abe Listed), has been deleted.
