Evan Rachel Wood (born September 7, 1987) is an American actress. She began acting in the 1990s, appearing in several television series, including American Gothic (1995–1996) and Once and Again (1999–2002). Wood made her début as a leading film actress at the age of nine in Digging to China (1998) and became well known after her transition to a more adult-oriented Golden Globe-nominated role in the teen drama film Thirteen (2003).
Wood continued acting mostly in independent films, including Pretty Persuasion (2005), Down in the Valley (2006), Running with Scissors (2006), and in the big studio production Across the Universe (2007). Since 2008, Wood has appeared in more mainstream films, including The Wrestler (2008), Whatever Works (2009) and The Ides of March (2011). She has also returned to television, playing the supporting role of Queen Sophie-Anne on True Blood from 2009 to 2011 and playing Kate Winslet's character's daughter in the HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce (2011), a role for which she was nominated for the Golden Globe and Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Her personal life, particularly her relationship with Marilyn Manson, to whom she was previously engaged, has attracted press attention. In 2012, she married English actor Jamie Bell, with whom she has one son. They separated in 2014.
Wood began dating British actor Jamie Bell in 2005 after they co-starred in the music video for Green Day's song "Wake Me Up When September Ends." They got matching tattoos of each other's initials; in Wood's case, a "J" on her left ankle. After a year together, the relationship ended in 2006. Wood later commented that, "We had matching tattoos because we knew our love would last forever. Trouble is, it didn't, things happened, we split. But I don't regret the tattoo. It reminds me of a great, great period in my life."
In January 2007, Wood's relationship with Marilyn Manson became public. The two met at a party at the Chateau Marmont Hotel; Wood has stated that she was attracted to Manson's frequent use of black eye liner and once described their relationship as "healthy and loving". Two portraits of Wood, painted by Manson, have been exhibited at the Celebritarian Corporation Gallery of Fine Art. Wood is also the inspiration behind Manson's song "Heart-Shaped Glasses", and she appeared with Manson in the song's music video. Manson has said that Wood's appearance was the highest-paid music video role ever. The couple split in November 2008; according to Wood, they "both decided to take some time apart so [they] could concentrate on work." They later re-united and it was reported in early January 2010 that the couple was engaged to be married. Wood and Manson ended their engagement in August 2010.
In the summer of 2011, Wood was reported to have rekindled her relationship with Jamie Bell, five years after they first broke up. The couple married in a small ceremony on October 30, 2012. They have one son, born in July 2013. Wood had a natural home birth with her son, and publicly thanked Ricki Lake, creator of the documentary The Business of Being Born, for inspiring her decision. In May 2014, Wood and Bell announced that they had separated after 19 months of marriage.
In August 2012, Wood came out as bisexual via Twitter.
Wood's mother is a convert to Judaism and Wood's father is Christian. In 2003, Wood described herself as Jewish. In 2012, she stated, "I believe in God but I am not religious. I am spiritual. My definition of God isn't in any religion. It's very personal".
