James Woods is no longer being represented by his agent.

Woods, 71, shared the news on Thursday, posting a screenshot of an email exchange between him and his agent, Ken Kaplan of The Gersh Agency.

“It’s the 4th of July and I’m feeling patriotic,” the email from Kaplan began. “I don’t want to represent you anymore. I mean I could go on a rant but you know what I’d say.”

Woods captioned the image, “So this email from my agent,” whom he described as “a political liberal.”

Woods went on to share a response on social media, although it’s unclear if the message was actually sent to Kaplan over e-mail as well.

“My response: ‘Dear Ken, I don’t actually. I was thinking if you’re feeling patriotic, you would appreciate free speech and one’s right to think as an individual. Be that as it may, I want to thank you for all your hard work and devotion on my behalf. Be well,’ ” the actor wrote.

Woods, who is most known for roles in CasinoOnce Upon a Time in MexicoThe Virgin Suicides, and Videodrome is an outspoken conservative who frequently shares his political beliefs on social media.

For instance, on the fourth of July, he shared an article about the Trump Administration’s decision to reverse former President Barack Obama’s affirmative action admission policies.
