Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Evan Rachel Wood Basically Does Porn Now

Evan Rachel Wood once seemed so promising, right? She’s beautiful, she gave a knockout performance in Thirteen, and seemed like a pretty smart and down-to-earth teen. Then she started on-again-off-again dating Marilyn Manson and doing a bunch of other generally freaky things in the public eye. It was like the girl we hoped she was vanished before our very eyes and turning into yet another totally odd and misguided 20-something actress.

Today I saw her in this new Gucci fragrance ad with actor Chris Evans, and while celebrity endorsement deals for major brands are semi-exclusive and a sign of success, all Evan does in the clip is make out with Chris and then gyrate all over him. Basically, a part that would have normally gone to some model desperate to make a name for herself was played by Evan.

I am so tired of seeing this girl act sexy and irreverent. One or two over-sexed roles certainly never hurt an attractive young actress, but homegirl needs to put on a turtleneck and play a student or something.

What do you think of the ad and Evan’s decision to stick to sexy roles? Is that all she’s good for these days?

  • I think the fact that you are talking down about her for doing this ad when Chris Evans is doing the exact same thing in is completely sexist. I get your point about how normally some no name model would have a similar role, but these two actors have nearly identical amounts of screen time in the ad. Gucci choosing to go with a well known actress to be opposite Chris Evans makes sense when that much screen time is being used up on her. The commercial isn’t any more provocative than anything else on tv these days and making a point to dis her for it while glossing over the fact that another well known actor is in her costar is just slut shaming. And you suck for it.

  • It’s not like she wrote/directed this. She was probably just excited to ‘get into bed’ with Gucci. I used that term to add to the sluttyness.

  • I love her and thought it was totally tasteful. I put your post into my magic 8 ball and the word ‘jealousy’ came up.

  • ERW is drop. dead. gorgeous. and she’s shown throughout her career that she’s not afraid of a sex scene or two so it’s not surprising to see this exploited by the likes of Gucci. I actually like the ad.

  • that guy loooooves cocaine. i know from experience; i watched him do shit tons of it while my friend was ordered to set up his drumkit (poseur). these 2 starfuckers probably did lines off each other’s assholes. you think i’m kidding but i am so not.

  • I’d do that ad in a minute. What? Evan’s so uppity now that she can’t do an ad for Gucci, starring a completely gorgeous Chris Evans? I thought the ad not to my taste but nothing that I’d look down on her for.

  • And he takes her bracelet as a souvenir of the conquest.

    I guess he’ll nail it to the bed post in lieu of a notch…

    I guess it could have been worse. She could have been weeping as he callously left…
