Isn't Evan Rachel Wood too young to be posing naked in magazines? That was our first thought upon seeing her series of risque photos in the new issue of Flaunt. But no, Wood is 24 -- and though she only recently started playing "grown-up" roles, the edgy, glam photos show that she's all woman.
In addition to showing off her curves and tattoos, the Ides of March actress opened up to magazine about life in the public eye.
"People have an idea of who you are, and it’s hard to break that barrier, so sometimes you can feel kind of isolated," says Wood, whose three-year relationship with shock rocker Marilyn Manson briefly made her a tabloid fixture. "Of course, there are times in my life where I think, 'Well, what if I hadn’t done this and had a so-called normal life?' Then, I look at all the things I’ve gotten to do and, even though it came with sacrifices, I wouldn’t trade it."
The actress, whose nominated for a best supporting actress Golden Globe this year for her role in Mildred Pierce, recently reunited with her ex Jamie Bell -- they first dated in 2006. Though she didn't tell the magazine about her relationship (or rumors that she's engaged), she did talk a bit about her recently revealed bisexuality.
"In a way, I think the lines between male and female are being more blurred by the day, and I think that’s kind of cool," she says. "I don’t think we should just base ourselves and our sexes on what we’ve been told are male and female. There are so many people going against their instincts or what’s natural, and I think that’s a problem -- that repression, guilt, and fear really produce violence and hatred. You have to make room for the possibility of there being more than one way to live. I never judge these people or hate them. I just am sad for anyone who is so set in their ways without experiencing other options."
And while she likes to experience the options, Wood says that it can be hard to stick to just one thing in the age of multitasking celebs like James Franco.
"At times, I feel like, 'Oh s***, should I be making short films and have a band?'" she jokes. "But I have to do what’s right for me. I don’t just want to do this because I feel like everyone else is."
