Evan Rachel Wood: I date both guys and girls

Evan Rachel Wood has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with rocker Marilyn Manson for years - the couple broke off their engagement last August - but that doesn’t mean she only has eyes for guys.

The “Mildred Pierce” actress explains to Esquire that she’s open-minded when it comes to dating.

“I'm up for anything. Meet a nice guy, meet a nice girl,” she says, adding that she’s always been into androgyny.

“I grew up in love with David Bowie," the 23-year-old tells Esquire. “I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls ... I'm into androgyny in general." (Which, she notes, could explain why she’s into Manson.)

But when she’s dating a woman, Wood says that she does prefer to wear the pants.

“I'm more kind of like the guy when it comes to girls. I'm the dominant one,” Wood says. "I'm opening the doors, I'm buying dinner. Yeah, I'm romantic."

    This girl has always struck me as a self-important poser. I don't believe much of what she says. Oh sure, she'll probably show up somewhere with another girl for the shock value, but I don't believe her motives are authentic. She's a pretty good actress, though. She should spend less effort trying to "impress" everyone with her "coolness", and just concentrate on her career.

    Who cares? This would have been news 25-30 years ago but not so much today.
    And she better take better care of herself. She looks like an attractive late 30s to early 40s woman. She will look 50s when she really is 30 at this rate.

    Idgaf if she dates dudes or chicks or aliens! But if you don't know who this girl is you need to look her up. Across the Universe. The Wrestler. Running with Scissors. Any of those sound familiar? Or do people who read entertainment news not watch movies anymore? Like award winning movies? Give me a break!

    I can wait to see what she looks like when she hits 40.

    By the way who is she....I have never heard of her.....

    I guess Marilyn Manson is not that famous...

    Bill Clinton got a couple of BJ's from Monica Lewinsky and I know who she is....

    I have never heard of Marilyn's long time on again off again girl friend.

    Isn't Marilyn Manson 42 years old (?) and they've been dating for years? I guess he's a pedophile and she had daddy issues. Am I just being jealous taht he had a younger woman attracted to him? Naaa, my wife's 15 years younger than me.
