Evan Rachel Wood is getting candid about her wild relationship with Marilyn Manson.

"I thought I was in love," she says in a new interview with Net-A-Porter's The Edit. "I wasn’t doing it to prove a point or be rebellious. I wanted to break a mold, for sure – I knew I was edgier, more alternative and weird. And he was just what I needed because I felt really free with him. And that freedom was attractive."

While the former child star still gets angry about the "negative feedback" she got while dating Manson following his split from Dita Von Teese, she still has no regrets about the rocky romance.


"I wouldn’t trade any of [our relationship]," she declares. "I appreciate everything he taught me."

In the past, Manson simply called their relationship a "mistake." 

Following their high profile split, Wood reunited with now-ex Jamie Bell, whom she married in October 2012. The couple welcomed their a baby boy in July 2013 and ended up separating in May 2014.

The actress has nothing but love for her estranged husband. "Jamie’s lovely," she tells the publication. "He was the love of my life.”


While Evan is still relishing the joys of motherhood, she's not ready to have another child just yet.

“I don’t want to have another baby, but my little sister is adopted, and I was hoping that one day I could do that,” she explains. “There are so many possibilities.”
