Evan Rachel Wood confirms that she’s back with Marilyn Manson

Evan Rachel Wood, 21, was first linked with shock rocker Marilyn Manson, 40, in January 2007. Their relationship is said to have hastened the end of Manson’s marriage to Dita Von Teese. Many called Wood “Dita 2.0” as she adopted a Dita-like retro style during their relationship with red lips and thickly penciled eyebrows. The two broke up in November of last year with Wood confirming the news to the press but adding “I’m always going to love [Manson] and respect him… It’s life – it happens.”

Wood was promoting The Wrestler at the time, and denied rumors of a relationship with her on-screen father, Mickey Rourke. She was also linked to “3rd Rock From The Sun” cutie Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who seemed much more her speed. In the months following her split from Manson, Wood dyed her hair strawberry blonde and generally looked a lot happier.

Unfortunately Wood recently told GQ magazine that she’s back with Manson again. Wood and Manson were seen in February leaving a hotel, but if they’ve been together since they’ve been keeping a low profile. He was briefly linked to another look-alike last year, but that must not have lasted:

Evan Rachel Wood is wild.

For one, she tells the May issue of GQ that she and Goth-rock shockmeister Marylin Manson, with whom she once shot a blood-spattered sex scene in a music video, are back on.

She also claims that reports that she and “The Wrestler” co-star Mickey Rourke, 56, had a thang are bunk.

“There was no truth to it, and it was so annoying,” said Wood, 21. “The friendship was intimate and nice, and this makes it weird.”

Next wild thing up for Wood? Her first Woody Allen flick, where she plays a runaway who marries … wait for it … Larry David.

Yes, the old bald guy from “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

Told ya she was wild.

While Manson comes across as an intelligent, articulate, somewhat shy person in interviews I can’t help but think he’s a lousy boyfriend. He cheated on Dita with Wood and it seemed like he was seeking a young replacement that would emulate and look up to him as opposed to independent Dita. In a recent interview, Dita hinted that Manson tried to reconcile, saying “He’s been in touch a little. The apologies come, and he was like, ‘I made a big mistake’.'” Outlets interpreted this as an attempt to get back together, but maybe Manson was just trying to heal old wounds. Do you think he turned to Wood after Dita told him to get lost?

    Its too bad she’s basically been branded a whore since people think she broke up the marriage…because I think she’s pretty and a decent actress.
    Sure I feel bad for Dita also, but as you mentioned–Manson is a crappy boyfriend and a cheater.

  2. Kat says:

    By going back to Manson, Evan Rachel Wood has also confirmed that she’s a desperate, attention seeking narcissist.

    I suppose at least it gives Dita a few laughs.

  3. Bodhi says:

    ERW can do SOOOOO much better!

  4. Polkasox says:

    I always thought she got with him to try to make herself a star, which it certainly worked – she is much more well-known that she would have been. I wonder if that was the best idea though, because she doesn’t seem to be very well liked now…

    But I could be way off here.

  5. photo jojo says:

    Well that’s nice for them. I mean, if these two crazy kids can’t make it work, what does that say about the rest of us?

    Oh and yeah, that was sarcasm too! 😉

  6. MSat says:

    Well that explains why she’s looking like Dita Von Teese again. Even this photo shoot looks like Dita’s Playboy shoot from last year!

  7. coocoolechu says:

    they are both creepy.

  8. Aaaaa says:


  9. Lori says:

    Totally gross.

  10. The prettyembalmer says:

    Shes a beauty

  11. FF says:

    So Dita was right. When Marylin was ringing her he must have been ringing Evan too if they’re back together now.

    Whatever to this girl.

  12. Annie says:

    Dita-CopyCat issues aside, this girl’s got a major Electra complex.

    So bizarre.

  13. gg says:

    What a stupid little girl!

    MM must’ve got on the phone the next day after he was dumped to beg anybody else to be his girlfriend since he’s so insecure he can’t be alone. He’s a guyliner and manscara-wearing PUSSY.

  14. yadira says:

    EEEEwwwwww, why anyone would date that guy is beyond me. Wait, Marilyn Manson is a guy right?

  15. allison says:

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO. i used to love her despite the marilyn manson stuff. but recently ive stoppedliking her. i think shes a try-hard.

  16. cherryblossom says:

    I like Manson…(apparently that makes me a minority).
    As long as they’re happy what the fuck is the problem here? So she’s younger. Oh no, stop the presses. It’s Hollywood.

  17. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    Economy Dita – just like that Megan Fox thing is an economy A-Jo.

    Kids today – no original ideas!

  18. Dingles says:

    Am I the only person who loves these two together? Geez.

  19. Ally says:


    She’s so talented. This is just a huge distraction from her genuinely good acting. And it’s sad to see her getting sucked into Manson’s desperate external identity-affirming antics (the make-up and costumes).

  20. Ned says:

    While we all seen in the past people who would do ANYTHING to be famous, this is the lowest of them all.

    She grosses me out. Completely.

  21. G. says:

    I think she’s pretty and talented. As for her and MM, well, what is there to say? Some people have weird tastes in men. I won’t judge her for that.

  22. kai says:

    I like her. She’s a lot more talented and interesting as her peers and a pretty serious actress. I think she’ll have a long career and people will look back at this as her ‘wild days’, who cares. She’s cool.

  23. Bodhi says:

    The thing is, she IS far more talented & interesting than 95% of her peers! I totally understand the weirdness of love & all, but she really can do so much better than MM!

  24. Tripod says:

    I wonder if she eats Twiggy’s boogers to show Manson how wild she can be

  25. Christina X says:

    I can’t stand either one of these two, tbh.

    Evan Rachel Wood is clearly desperate for attention and is weak in character, because she allows herself to be Marilyn Manson’s sloppy seconds.

    If she wasn’t, she wouldn’t have conformed to Marilyn Manson’s whims to replace Dita von Teese, but clearly, she sees nothing wrong with being Warner’s little Stepford robot either. Had she been remotely smart, she would’ve put her foot down to his lack of true interest in her a long time ago…and that’s precisely what it is.

    If Brian Warner really loved Evan Rachel Wood, he’d have accepted her for who she was without the black makeup (she didn’t wear until they became an item), and in a sense, it makes him a major hypocrite anyway.

    Brian Warner’s the biggest bitch about conformity, then why does every women he’s been with become Dita von Teese? All of these women conform to the same standard: 1940s era inspired “goth” pin-up…which for alternative guys is the blonde haired, blue eyed, large chested bimbo for your “Average Joe”.

    But I guess that conformity is OK when it’s to Warner’s own accord…and coming from the artist whose most well known song is “The Beautiful People”, a direct attack on standards of aesthetic beauty, the only women who I know of who has been with Warner were models, dancers, and actresses.

    Because you know, he’s not vain or anything.

    These two idiots are meant for each other. By the way, gotta love the people who clearly didn’t read the article. No-one dislikes Evan Rachel Wood and Marilyn Manson because of the age difference or Marilyn Manson being “weird”, people dislike these two because Marilyn Manson cheated on his then wife with her, who knew damn well what she was doing because it was a pretty high profile marriage.

    RTFT, damn it.

  26. karleakalamitii says:

    Wtf why is everybody hating on the two of them who cares if shes conformed to what manson wants who knows maybe its really what she wants I mean obviously Manson started dating her when she looked innocent because he liked it she changed out of the influence of Manson and the public expecting them to look proper and right together. They could possibly be in love and all of this could be fake a big publicity stunt created by all of them and/or the media but who really knows what the media makes up and what is reality behind the dream. He may or may not have cheated on Dita but maybe if she truly loved him she would have given him a second chance insted of hating on Evan for being the third wheel to the realationship(so to speak)there could be possible hate towards Dita if you look at all four sides of the story insted of just the media’s side. This shit pisses me off.

    I think that Evan Racheal Wood and Marilyn Manson both look wonderful and seem to make eachother happy in an intense amout. If they want to be together then let them don’t pick them apart and try to tear them down.

    Sure Evan is looking alot like Dita but that does not mean that Manson is making her look that way. maybe she feels that in order to keep Manson’s attention she needs to change her appearence to match his also doing this to benifit the look they have to the public. Imagine this; some little 21 year old in a pretty white dress with hardly any makeup whatsoever on looking as innocent as possible walking along side goth king Marilyn Manson all dressed in black with thick dark eyeshadows and eyeliner on now how would that look in the eyes of the public? Not very good at all.

    Maybe Evan has always wanted to be able to express herself this way and now she can since she has Manson by her side.

    I’m just trying to prove the simple fact that just because some article says something does not make it true and with celebrities you never know what the truth is.

    I think they are a wonderful and amazing couple and I hope they live happily together and try to ignore what stupid people are saying to try and bring them down.

    Marilyn Manson & Evan Racheal Wood= forever love

    XOXO a forever fan of Marilyn Manson

  27. karleakalamitii says:

    Everyone is picking on Evan Racheal Wood only wanting to be with Marilyn Manson to become more known but didn’t Dita do the same thing? She was a barly known burlesque dancer until she got with manson, not much different from Evan is she. No, I didn’t think so.

  28. Vodka says:

    tbh MM shoulda stayed with Dita.. they were a much better couple and i cant help but feel like evan rachel wood only wants MM for his fame/money etc.. i mean for that one music vid they made together (Heart Shaped Glasses), she got the highest-paid music role ever. and then she says that she and MM are spending time apart.

    MM can do so much better than evan rachel wood it would rly suck if they got back together

  29. Alice says:

    Do any of you even know anything about Marilyn Manson? He does, in fact, come across as a creep or a weirdo. But have you ever listened to his music? Ever listened to or read anything he’s had to say? He’s a brilliant man, and if you don’t realize that, even just in his lyrics, you’re not getting the deeper message and knowledge of him. I’m not a Satan worshiper, I’m not a far-out conspiracy theorist. I’m not really anything out of the ordinary. I’ve just simply come to thoroughly enjoy his music.

    If Evan and Brian (Manson) have a connection, so be it. Why is it any business of ours what they’re doing off-screen. There is too much being put on celebrities anymore. Why not stop taking so much interest in what they’re doing and start taking more interest in what is happening in your own life, and your loved one’s lives?

    Mostly, stop simply looking at a person, what they wear, how they do their makeup, and how they perform their shows, and realize that there is more to them that what you see in pictures and movies. They have lives outside of that. Let them intertwine if they want them to. It’s no decision of ours, and they shouldn’t be subject to so much judgement from the “outside world”.
