Oh yeah, and he’s Marilyn Manson, which is really creepy. Wood was most recently linked to Mickey Rourke, who played her dad in “The Wrestler.” That’s right, she likes ‘em old and crazy.I don’t want to play shrink here, but it seems like Evan has some serious daddy issues.She also dated Ed Norton before Manson, and while he’s 39, he strikes me as a better choice.Anyway, rumor has it that Evan and Marilyn are back together again – he even referred to her as his girlfriend.If I could pick anyone to have a conversation with or ask advice from, it would be her. I wept going to sleep the night before, and I wept waiting for her at the restaurant. Your scenes with Mickey Rourke in the film are quite intense.What was the mood like on set for that last emotional scene in the film? I don't think he really likes too much rehearsal, so I mainly just talked about the scenes and the character with Darren first. I was gonna ask if there things about Aronofsky's style of directing that felt distinctive or new to you. Oh God, yeah, it was pretty cold when we shot there. Do you play all the instruments or do you play with other musicians?
Wood gives us straight talk on icons (Jodie Foster), eyewear (her collection of heart-shaped glasses) and how she learned to say "I don't care what they think." For actors, it's a rite of passage to work on a Woody Allen movie. I've been wanting to do it for so long and nobody would give me a chance. He was really humble, saying, "If you don't like it, it's okay, we'll find something else." But he took a leap of faith on me. That he'll just say, "This isn't working, I'll recast." Knowing I hadn't done comedy before, I hadn't met him, I hadn't auditioned - the first day I was just convinced I was going to be fired. I knew I could do it if I could just keep my nerves under control. Speaking of touring, I have to ask you about your love life and Marilyn Manson. Certainly dating him put you in tabloid headlines in ways you'd never been before - mostly because you were perceived to have broken up his marriage to Dita von Teese. I have never met the man - he might have a different opinion of me if he met me. I loved it in England because when I was underage to drink here, I wasn't there! He broke my heart into a million pieces, that's all I'm going to say. But the first scene we shot we ended up reshooting anyway, so you're not going to see it. But I love the trains, the way it smells, and I actually love the food. You were scheduled to work next with Jodie Foster in her much-delayed directing project, "Flora Plum," though I know that's on hold again. It's not bad at all - lots of beef and lamb, good and hearty. This week, she's dealing with at least seven for a show that sold out weeks ago.Theatre In The Park's most successful alumna—21-year-old Evan Rachel Wood, a Hollywood critical darling renowned for her roles in The Wrestler, Thirteen and a dozen other films—has returned to play Juliet alongside her father, Ira David Wood III, and under the direction of her brother, 24-year-old Ira David Wood IV.Vilardo's sorting the week's correspondence, pen in hand, when she pauses again.
