Evan Rachel Wood (born September 7, 1987)[1] is an American movie, television and theater actress. 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).[2]

Wood continued acting in mostly independent films, including Pretty Persuasion (2005), Down in the Valley (2006), and in the big studio production Across the Universe (2007). Critics have praised Wood's acting, such as The Guardian newspaper describing her as being "wise beyond her years" and as "one of the best actresses of her generation".[3] Her personal relationship with singer Marilyn Manson received media coverage. She is openly bisexual.[4]
