PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Oscar-nominated actor James Woods says he’s retiring from the entertainment industry.

The news was included in a statement by Woods’ real estate agent offering Woods’ Rhode Island lake house for sale.

Allen Gammons said Friday that Woods is 70 and wants to relax. He says the actor’s brother and mother recently died, and he hopes to spend more time on passions including photography, antiquing and poker.

Woods is known for his conservative political views and has said that’s made it tough to find work in Hollywood. Gammons said Woods’ decision was not political.
