Evan Rachel Wood semi-confirms that she dated Alex Skarsgard

Evan Rachel Wood
I wasn’t going to cover this interview in which Evan Rachel Wood sort-of confirmed that she’d broken off a sweet, sweet piece of her True Blood costar Alexander Skarsgard, but then I saw these amazing photos of her at the Rocky Horror 35th anniversary tribute show in LA. She’s a perfect Magenta in a maid’s costume right down to her black and red manicure. (Although the original Magenta didn’t have black nail beds.) Evan has a brief interview with E! Online, in which she oh-so-casually drops that she’s dated a castmember on True Blood. This girl is smooth and she knows how to feed information on the press without making it obvious. We first heard that Evan and Alex were dating last September. Shortly afterwards, Kate Bosworth got her emaciated claws into Alex and Evan reconciled with Marilyn Manson, only to thankfully break up with him again. I guess losing Alex Skarsgard to Kate Bosworth is enough to send a poor girl into Marilyn Manson’s arms.

magentainsetWe chatted with Wood at last night’s Rocky Horror Picture Show tribute benefit for the Painted Turtle in L.A. about the very successful love lives of the show’s cast.

“God, that set is just a lovefest over there,” she told us. “I’ve even been there myself. I did date one of the castmembers already.”

But that’s in the past. Now, she has another costar to think about. He’s not someone on True Blood, but a young hottie in The Ides of March, a political drama directed by George Clooney.

“My character gets herself into a bit of a predicament with one of the politicians, and she’s also Ryan Gosling’s love interest,” Wood said. “I’m very excited [because] I’ve had a total crush on him forever. It’s going to be amazing!”

As for working with Clooney, who’s notorious for pulling pranks on his costars, Wood said, “I’m excited for the practical jokes…Bring it on!”

I find Wood pretentious but anyone who can do a costume so well earns major points in my book. She’s lovely as Magenta, and I found her somewhat believable on True Blood as Louisiana’s vampire Queen Sophie-Anne. The girl is just 23 and she survived a longterm relationship with Marilyn Manson. She’s probably kicking herself that she lost out on one to Alex Skarsgard, although the fact that he’s been with Kate Bosworth for so long just makes him seem inadequate despite all the evidence otherwise.

    UGH, I just can’t stand her!!!! Alex has the WORST taste in women!

  2. Iggles says:

    She’s only 23!!!!!!!!!!

    Ewwww! Makes the romance with Manson an even bigger yuck factor! It’s gross when someone so young dates a person twice their age!!

  3. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Oh I would have boned him to Rachel. Better to have hit it then to have never hit it all? Is that how the saying goes? I am sure its something like that. Well we don’t have to worry about seeing her on True Blood anymore because Bill is clearly gonna kill her character to keep her away from Sookie. I like her but stay away from Eric please. Kthanks.

  4. ViktoryGin says:

    Accolades for the costume are probably owed to her sylist and makeup artist.

    God, this bitch crawls up my ass, but admittedly she seems a step above Kate BosNOTworth(it).

    Like perhaps she’s got more to offer the world than her insecurities and blonde hair.

    She probably scared poor dear to death and had him running into the arms of someone more conventional and less-challenging.

    Ok, let me stop attacking the girls like I know them. Or care.

  5. Gwen says:

    I can’t get over her relationship with MM. Ewwwwwww :O

  6. December says:

    I find her extremely unattractive. She has the body of a 10 year old boy and she doesn’t seem to care that she breaks up relationships. Blech.

  7. Sarah says:

    Prediction: Evan Rachel and Ryan hook-up, and have a relationship too, as long as one of them doesn’t have something serious going on with someone else by the time they shoot. Of course, I hear Ryan hooks up a lot, as he loves the ladies, though he must treat em well as there aren’t a lot of bad rumours about him. And yes, I know ERW got involved with MM when he was married. I just don’t think Ryan would go there. Just an opinion. He seems to have integrity.

  8. Bill Hicks is God says:

    Her costume is one of Magenta’s from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. No accolades necessary; if anything it demonstrates her remarkable lack of imagination.

  9. devilgirl says:

    And people talk about Aniston’s chin. ERW has got one massive chin on her! WHOA!

    She was actually in a Rocky Horror revival with other celebs.

  10. Cleo says:

    Those boots save that outfit for me.

  11. Mingy says:

    she looks so fug in those pics..the shape of her face is not cute.

  12. laura says:

    I think she’s kinda cool, and original, and the sex with MM was probably really hott.

  13. Melissa says:

    I’m with devilgirl – that makeup really accentuates the face that she has quite a chin on her. Not good!

  14. Jenna says:

    I love MM so i’m a little jealous.

  15. Camille says:

    I guess I am in the minority (like usual lol), but I think she is gorgeous and looks great in the costume. I also wish that Alex had stayed with her and not hooked up with that loser Bosworth. Alex and ERW made a far more interesting and sexy couple. Just my 2 cents.

  16. operagirl says:

    I remember her from Practical Magic — the older of Sally Owen’s two daughters. She was very compelling for her age, and showed great promise. I still think she shows great promise. She is a young woman growing into herself in an industry that eats you alive. I hope she does just that. Oh, and she is a natural ginger, btw. Not a blonde, unless you count strawberry blonde as blonde. đŸ™‚

    The circus must be in town.

  18. May says:

    Evan Rachel Wood seems to be on the young side of 23. She’s intelligent but her behavior toward Manson’s ex, Dita Von Teese, was mean spirited and petty. I think she has pursuing a guy who was ultimately not interested confused with dating. They weren’t even in the same state most of the time the dating rumors (courtesy of Lainey Gossip) were circulating.

  19. Natalie says:

    I’m not going to lie, but I really like her. I think she looks great in the costume, even though she didn’t have to do anything to get it or have the make up done. I also think she is an incredible actress. Across the Universe is my favorite movie, she did an incredible job on Blackbird, and she was phenom in Ides of March. I don’t really care about her personal life to be honest because I think she brings so much more to the table with talent.
