James Woods has dismissed rumors of his retirement as fake news, but his house is still up for sale.

The 70-year-old Oscar-nominated actor took to Twitter bringing some clarity to the situation.

"The reports of my retirement are greatly exaggerated," he posted, taking a nod to Mark Twain who responded to a death hoax with a similar quote.

According to E News, the rumors were sparked after a real estate agent commissioned to sell Woods' family Rhode Island vacation home sent out a press release to various media sources with news about an imminent retirement.

The Providence Journal quoted Woods' listing real-estate agent, Allen Gammons, who said the actor would be retiring from the entertainment industry and hoped to "simplify his life" by selling "his many real estate holdings on both coasts."

However, Woods has assured these claims were false.

"My career is not going to end in a real estate announcement," he told The Washington Post.

"It's just funny. My agent said, 'Are you retired?' I said, 'I don't think so, am I?'"

Woods explained that Gammons had written up a news release but, when he read it back by telephone before circulating it, the actor who was driving at the time, admitted to not paying attention.

"I somehow didn't hear 'retirement,'" he said per The Washington Post.

With so many misleading reports about Woods' retirement circulating, one has to ask whether the property that started the whole saga was truly up for sale.

The Washington Post confirmed this, stating that Woods owned several properties including the vacation home in Exeter, which was listed this week as for sale at $1.39 million.

Woods also announced the property's sale on Twitter.
