Evan Rachel Wood (born September 7, 1987), in Raleigh, North Carolina. Her father is Ira David Wood III, and her mother is Sara Wood. She has two older brothers: Dana Wood, a musician, and Ira David Wood IV. Evan and her brothers sometimes performed at Theatre In The Park in Raleigh, North Carolina, where her father is the executive director and founder of the theatre.
At the age of 5 Evan screen tested against 'Kirsten Dunst' for the lead role in Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994) after a long auditioning process. She moved to Los Angeles with her mom and brother, Ira, in 1996 and has had success ever since, appearing in a TV series, TV-movies, and the big screen film, Practical Magic (1998). She starred in the comedy, S1m0ne (2002) as Al Pacino's daughter, followed by Thirteen (2003), with 'Holly Hunter'.
Wood's breakout role as Tracy in Thirteen (2003) garnered a Golden Globes nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture: Drama, and for a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role. At the time of this SAG nomination, Wood was the youngest actress to be nominated in the Leading Role category.
She received a Golden Globe and Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie" for her portrayal of Veda Pierce in the HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce (2011).
Wood also earned acclaim for her powerful performance as Stephanie, Mickey Rourke's estranged daughter in Darren Aronofsky's 2008 film, The Wrestler (2008).
As of 2016, she plays the sentient android Dolores Abernathy in the HBO television series Westworld, for which she won a Critics' Choice Award and earned a Golden Globe nomination. Wood said that Westworld was the greatest experience in the world and that it was a blessing to be part of the show.
Woods personal life, particularly her relationship with 'Marilyn Manson', to whom she was previously engaged, has attracted press attention.
Wood began dating British actor 'Jamie Bell' in 2005 after they co-starred in the music video for Green Day's song "Wake Me Up When September Ends". They got matching tattoos of each other's initials; in Wood's case, a "J" on her left ankle. After a year together, the relationship ended in 2006. Wood later commented that, "We had matching tattoos because we knew our love would last forever. Trouble is, it didn't, things happened, we split. But I don't regret the tattoo. It reminds me of a great, great period in my life".
In January 2007, Wood's relationship with 'Marilyn Manson' became public. The two met at a party at the Chateau Marmont Hotel; Wood has stated that she was attracted to Manson's frequent use of black eye liner and once described their relationship as "healthy and loving". Two portraits of Wood, painted by Manson, have been exhibited at the Celebritarian Corporation Gallery of Fine Art. Wood is also the inspiration behind Manson's song "Heart-Shaped Glasses", and she appeared with Manson in the song's music video. Manson has said that Wood's appearance was the highest-paid music video role ever. The couple split in November 2008; according to Wood, they "both decided to take some time apart so (they) could concentrate on work". They later re-united and it was reported in early January 2010 that the couple was engaged to be married. Wood and Manson ended their engagement in August 2010.
In the summer of 2011, Wood was reported to have rekindled her relationship with 'Jamie Bell', five years after they first broke up. Shortly after Wood disclosed that she was bisexual via Twitter, Wood and Bell were married in a small ceremony on (October 30, 2012). They have one son, (born in July 2013). Wood had a home birth with her son. In May 2014, Wood and Bell announced that they had separated after 19 months of marriage.
In January 2017, Wood got engaged to her Rebel and a Basketcase bandmate, Zach Villa.
