Evan Rachel Wood Whines About Vanity Fair Shoot


In 2003, Evan Rachel Wood was on the cover of Vanity Fair along with Amanda Bynes, Ashley and Mary-Kate OlsenMandy MooreHilary DuffAlexis BledelRaven Symone, and Lindsay Lohan. What a year to be alive! One Twitter fan was having a major nostalgic moment and tweeted the photo to Ms. Wood with the caption “never forget.” Well, she hasn’t forgotten, but unfortunately, all the memories she has of the shoot are bad ones. She went off on a Twitter rant about it, and I gotta say, my empathy meter is running low on this one. Let’s check out the tweets:


Okay, look. I get her point — young women are often exploited in Hollywood, and that sucks, and it isn’t all wonderfully glamorous. But I guess I’m a “hater”, because I really don’t see the point in complaining about a magazine shoot you did over a decade ago. I’m so sorry that Ms. Wood’s great struggle of flats vs. heels was so damaging that it still bothers her. I doubt Vanity Fair will ask her to ever do another shoot after this. But this is just my own opinion, and her comments, while rubbing me the wrong way, may ring true and inspiring to someone else, and I’m okay with that. Whatever works for you.

P.S. Can we talk about the awful and ugly dress they put Mandy Moore in? That’s the real shame here.

Evan Rachel Wood sued for $30 million over ’10 Things I Hate About You’ sequel

Evan Rachel Wood hasn’t exactly been having an easy time of things lately, has she? First her marriage ends, then she’s accused of being a homewrecker in Michelle Rodriguez‘s relationship with Cara Devlevingne and now she’s being sued for a whopping $30 million by producers of the 10 Things I Hate About You sequel that will never see the light of day, 1o Things I Hate About Life.

The story goes that Evan was paid $300,000 up front as a retainer. However, shortly into shooting, the movie ran out of money and shut down. When they wanted to pick up at the end of that same year, Evan had scheduling conflicts and couldn’t just drop everything to go back to this shitshow. So… they’re suing her for $30 million.

From E Online:

According to court documents filed Thursday and obtained by E! News, 10 Things Films wants more than $30 million from the star, including at least $20 million in lost profits; $500,000 in lost financing costs; $6 million in lost investments; and $5 million in damages.

A rep for Woods, meanwhile, calls the lawsuit “preposterous.”

“The lawsuit is preposterous and simply a bullying tactic from financially troubled producers,” the rep said in a statement to E! News. “The production shut down in February 2013 when the producers ran out of money. Even after that, Evan agreed to resume production in Nov. 2013, by which time the producers said they would have cleared up their issues.

“However, the producers still could not get their act together, nor did they pay Evan money that was owed. Repeated subsequent promises by the producers to resume production and pay Evan also turned out to be false. Enough is enough. The producers, not Evan, have breached contract.”

10 Things Films alleges in the lawsuit that Wood accepted the lead role in the film and took a $300,000 advance, and then “seemingly changed her mind about desiring to complete the film during principal photography, ultimately refusing without any legal justification to fulfill her contractual obligations and instead opting to walk out on the project.”

The company is claiming breach of written agreement and breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing.

Huh, I’m all for fulfilling obligations but something tells me they’re suing Evan so they can actually GET the money to make this piece of shit sequel. Newsflash: no one’s interested, no one will go to see it. The nostalgia factor isn’t even there – if people want to watch 10 Things I Hate About You, they’ll pop on a DVD, not go see some second-rate follow-up movie. No thanks.

Evan Rachel Wood is NOT hooking up with Michelle Rodriguez

Today is shaping up to be a pretty gay day here on Evil Beet – my apologies (except not) to everyone this might offend, but we have IMPORTANT NEWS to report. This time around, the rumour mill is concentrating on Evan Rachel Wood and Michelle Rodriguez. Evan just split with husband Jamie Bell because she cares about her baby too much, and last we heard from Michelle, she was doing it with Cara Delevingne… but are they now hooking up with EACH OTHER? That’s the word on the street, anyway… but alas, it’s untrue.

Well, that settles that, I guess. I do think it’s ridiculous that just because two people are openly gay/bisexual/whatever, they’re automatically dating. Here’s a clue to idiots everywhere: just because you happen to like the same sex doesn’t mean you like EVERYONE of that sex. Just like straight people don’t automatically like everyone of the opposite sex. It’s pretty simple.

Anyhow, keep doing you, EVR.

Evan Rachel Wood broke up with Jamie Bell to spend more time with their baby

Alright, this story is already annoying the shit out of me. Evan Rachel Wood and husband Jamie Bell have called it quits, which is a shame but it happens. The pair just had a baby last July, and it turns out, that might have been the beginning of the end of their relationship since apparently Evan is spending more time with the baby than she is having sex with her husband. The nerve!

From People:

“Nothing dramatic happened. They are friends and will continue to parent their son together. They have been friends for years and are happier this way than being married,” the source says.

The couple welcomed a son last July, and he became the focus, the source adds. “Evan loves being a mom. After her son was born, he has been her No. 1 priority. The marriage always came in second. They have different goals for the future and want to pursue them separately.”

As for Wood’s romantic future, the source adds: “Evan is very edgy and adventurous and wants to find a partner that she can share that with.”

What’s with grown ass men not being able to handle not being the center of their partner’s world? Obviously that intimacy and everything is important and parents still need to spend time with each other aside from raising kids, working, etc, but it just seems kinda ridiculous to me. If he was as invested in parenting as she is, he would probably feel just as exhausted and use the baby to strengthen their bond? I dunno, to be fair, I haven’t given birth personally, but I feel like it’s generally understood that kids are the first priority – especially when they’re little.

Pregnant Evan Rachel Wood Is Craving Pop Tarts, Pizza, and Pot

Evan Rachel Wood is in the final stages of her pregnancy and she really likes tweeting about her food cravings. And her, uh, drug cravings. Via SheKnows:

Whoa. Whoa. Peanut butter pop tarts?! Of course, because I cant smoke any weed right now. Damnit!

Whoa, whoa, whoa indeed. Stop the effing train. Right now. Stop the train. What is this shit? What is this nonsense? There’s PEANUT BUTTER FLAVORED POP TARTS??? EVAN I AM IN JUST AS MUCH SHOCK AS YOU ARE, GIRL.

Who gives a f-ck about the weed? THERE’S PEANUT BUTTER POP TARTS. Other food craving tweets:

Sometimes your diet goes to hell and you have pigs in a blanket and a pizza.

Yes. I know that very well. I wish I had pregnancy as an excuse.


Hey all you pregnant people, what foods did you crave?

Evan Rachel Wood Is Not Happy With the Paparazzi

Evan Rachel Wood is currently pregnant with her first child with fiancé Jamie Bell and since pregnant women have to get scans and stuff, obviously they’re gonna have to leave their house and that means – for celebs, at least – the chance of being photographed. For most people, this is an unfortunate hazard of the job, but ERW ain’t having that and took to her Twitter to lash out at The Daily Mail for posting pictures of her leaving her ultrasound appointment in Los Angeles.

The article has since been taken down from the Daily Mail website, so I guess she was victorious, but when does it stop? Do all celebrities have to bash newspapers on social media to get a response like this? Who even likes paparazzi photos? It’s bizarre. Like, I love Katy Perry, but ain’t nobody trying to see homegirl in a stained t-shirt and greasy hair. Stars: they’re just like us!

I don’t want this to turn into a diatribe about the media and how if we keep buying rags, the paparazzi will stay in business, etc. It’s a business that’s been in place for years and will probably never stop – especially while there is big money in it for all involved. In a sense, I also think that’s the life you sign up for when you become famous. No one deserves to be put in any life-threatening situation and you should be allowed a personal life, as well, but the business is such that if you leave your house – regardless of whether it’s going to a funeral or a baseball game – you’re probably going to have your picture taken. Them’s the breaks. If you don’t like it, give up your millions and your fancy lifestyle and buy a farm in Nebraska, yknow?

Evan has vowed to leave Los Angeles after the incident, but I doubt that’ll actually happen. As much as celebrities abhor the more obnoxious parts of fame, they’re too attached to the fancy parts to let it all go.
