Marilyn Manson Ruined Evan Rachel Wood

For real though.  That old creeper Marilyn swooped in on poor impressionable Evan, and now she gives douchey interviews to magazines like Esquire. Tale as old as time.

I’m going to show you guys excerpts from the interview, and you let me know if it’s just me or if this girl seems off nowadays:

On her death: She’s already written a will, she says. And she’s made plans to have her ashes dispersed across the world, including in her native Raleigh — in a field next to the theater run by her father — and Paris’s Luxembourg Gardens, which she used to visit with her onetime boyfriend, the actor Jamie Bell. The song playing at her funeral will be Pink Floyd’s “Shine On You Crazy Diamond.”

On her reputation: Wood must realize she has a reputation, and not merely for being among the most gifted actresses of her generation. “I don’t know!” she says, laughing. “I’m constantly changing, I’m constantly growing. I think I’m a little controversial? … I just try and keep some mystery, so hopefully people can’t really put their finger on it.”

On crying on cue: “I was a teenager in Hollywood with a divorced family — there’s gonna be pain there,” she says. “I’ve got plenty to draw from.”

On Bowie and Marilyn Manson: Halfway between Louis Jordan and Björk in the bar’s post-brunch playlist, “Oh! You Pretty Things” comes on. Don’t you know you’re driving your mamas and papas insane… . “I love this song,” she says. “I grew up in love with David Bowie.” (She has a tattoo on her upper thigh to prove it, a heart with an Aladdin Sane lightning bolt.) “So I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls … I’m into androgyny in general.” She says this helps explain the appeal of her ex Marilyn Manson.

“I think one of the things that freaked people out so much is that we looked so different.” True, that was part of it. But it was more than that. If Evan Rachel Wood represents America’s rebellious teenage daughter, Manson represents the forty-year-old goth in a band down the road she would date just to spite us. They broke off their engagement in August. The inevitable residual tattoos: Behind her right ear, the number “15,” a significant one for the two of them. Behind her left, something that looks like a heart combined with an infinity symbol. “You know, ‘Forever Love,’ ” she explains. “Whatever.”

On her bisexuality: “I’m up for anything. Meet a nice guy, meet a nice girl…”

This is the third such hint in the conversation, after that androgyny comment and saying she’d “marry” her Mildred Pierce costar Kate Winslet if she could.

You date women?

“Yes,” she says proudly, as if she was waiting to be asked.

Do you look for different things in men than in women?

“Yeah, I’m more kind of like the guy when it comes to girls. I’m the dominant one.” It’s with women, she says, that her inner North Carolina gentleman comes out: “I’m opening the doors, I’m buying dinner. Yeah, I’m romantic.”

I think it was somewhere between “You know, ‘forever love,’ whatever,” and the apparent constant hinting at her sexual interest in ladies that I decided that Evan Rachel Wood needs to shut her douchey mouth.  Are we in agreement?

  • But to sum up the original comment, she sounds young and keen to create a gothy femme fatale image…

    Tying too hard???? Or just part of the biz…

  • Just because she is bisexual and looks a little different does not mean she’s trying too hard or is a ‘douche’, where is the proof that this isn’t the real her? You don’t know her personally so you have no right to say that her personality and look is down to Manson. She seems happy and that interview did nothing to harm her image, she seems really nice and down to earth yet you people still criticise her? It’s the same with Lady Gaga, people are so quick to criticise something different just because they don’t understand it, saying that its fake and all for show. If they she was boring and plain like everybody else then would you be happy? Just let Evan do what she wants, she’s beautiful and talented and this article is completely ridiculous.

  • Pretty sure the writer is a fucking idiot. Go back to tabloids, asswipe. Like your opinion is anymore relevant than the dumbasses making people feel too thin or fat or not good enough. Fuck you.

  • Have you ever gone onto her twitter account? She has the filthiest mouth I have ever encountered. I don’t know if Marilyn Manson made her this way. I think her mother may have had a hand in it. She is pretty raunchy as well. When will ERW go away? She is just awful!
