She began acting in the late 1990s, appearing in several television roles, including American Gothic and Once and Again. Wood's first role as a leading movie actress was in 2002's Little Secrets, and she became well known after changing to a more adult-orientated Golden Globe-nominated role in the critically acclaimed Thirteen (2003).

Her personal relationship with singer Marilyn Manson received media coverage. She is openly bisexual.
