Evan Rachel Wood talked to this month’s Marie Claire and gave us quite a lot of insight into her super interesting and sometimes bizarre life. She talked about working with George Clooney on The Ides of March, making out with Ryan Gosling, her obsession with Justin Bieber & her new relationship with old boyfriend Jamie Bell. Read on for some highlights from the interview then check out the gallery for pics of Evan and Jamie–make sure to pay attention to Evan’s new teeth.
On working with Clooney: It was a stupid amount of fun. He just surrounds himself with really great, smart, laid-back funny people with good energy. He loved to keep the camera rolling when we didn’t know it was on. I’m pretty sure he has me dancing to Justin Bieber on film. We were playing around and joking with Ryan [Gosling] off-camera and started doing this dance. It got really quiet, then George poked his head around the corner and said, “Enjoy the DVD!”
On obsession with Bieber: I saw the movie [Never Say Never], and that’s what did it. I ended up seeing it three times — in the theaters. One of those times was the director’s cut, I’m not even kidding. I got obsessed with the kid. It’s going to be weird if I ever meet him. He’s brought so much joy to my life.
On getting to kiss Gosling: Yeah, it was awesome. We had fun. Ryan’s amazing because he has this way about him that’s incredibly attractive, not just in a sexy way but he’s smart, he’s cool, he’s talented, he’s really creative, and he has this mysterious quality to him that drives people crazy. So yeah, it wasn’t a hard day at work.
On Julie Taymor’s Spiderman musical: I don’t think it’s fair from where I’m standing, but I don’t know the whole story since I wasn’t there. I’d been attached to it for years, and I was missing out on jobs because I thought I was going to be on Broadway. I finally just had to say, ‘I’ve got to take a job!’ But Julie’s vision is amazing and the things about her in the show are incredible. Visually, it’s brilliant.
On if she’s glad she did marry Marilyn Manson: I am glad — for both of us. We both have a lot more growing to do. I don’t think it would’ve been right, but I am glad that we were engaged. I think we needed to make a statement to each other that it was legit. So that was good.
On being bisexual: Yeah, that’s a big part of who I am, and it always has been for as long as I can remember. I can’t say I’m one way or the other because I’ve honestly fallen in love with a man and I’ve honestly fallen in love with a woman. I don’t know how you label that, it’s just how it is.
On if she’s back with Bell: I mean, I’ve got his initial tattooed on my ankle, so…
