Wood Defends Manson Breakup
After splitting from Manson, Wood defends her ex when reports claim Manson kicked her brother Ira– who was living with the couple–out of her guest house. Explaining that the break was mutual, Wood says in a statement to PEOPLE, "I love him as a person and as an artist. I will always be proud to have been a part of that."
Wood stars as Mickey Rourke's estranged daughter in his comeback vehicle, The Wrestler. The film, directed by Darren Aronofsky, centers on a retired professional wrestler and earns Rourke a lead actor Golden Globe award. "[The film] is about doing whatever it takes you to follow your dreams," Wood tells Fox News. "You make your mark and you become a legend, and that’s what Mickey did in real life."
Evan's Love Shuffle
Wood, 21, steps out with actor Shane West in celebration of his 31st birthday at Bardot Hollywood. "I think you can put two and two together," Wood said when asked about her new flame. "I won't confirm or deny it but I don't think I have to." But their romance is short-lived.
Manson, 41, proposes to Wood, 22, while performing on stage in Paris, according to reports. The rocker, who admitted to obsessing over the actress during their split, told the Herald Sun, "Me being me at my best is what I need to be. That really paid off because I'm back with Evan." By August, the pair calls it quits again.
Evan Goes Gucci
After a sexy stint on HBO's vampire series True Blood, Wood continues vamping it up in a fashion campaign for Gucci’s Guilty fragrance with actor Chris Evans. "[She] has very strong character," the Italian luxury brand's creative director, Frida Giannini, says of the young actress. "I wanted a fresh individual that would coincide with the image of the project."
Cutting the Red Tape
Fresh off an Emmy nod for her role in HBO's Mildred Pierce, Wood joins the all-star cast of political drama The Ides of March, alongside Ryan Gosling. "Quite honestly, I wish every movie I worked on was a George Clooney movie," she gushes to Marie Claire of costar and director Clooney. "It was a stupid amount of fun."
Ring a Bell?
After reuniting with former flame Jamie Bell over the summer, Wood is photographed in Hollywood wearing what looks like an engagement ring on her left hand. Though she remains mum on her bling, the actress does gush over the gifts Bell gives her over the holidays. "You know you've found your soul mate when they give you shoes and Nintendo games for Christmas," she Tweets.
Wood and Bell quietly wed in an intimate ceremony held in front of family and friends. "Words cannot describe the happiness I am feeling. Overwhelming," the actress, who wore a Carolina Herrera dress for the big day, Tweets, followed by, "Song of the day '(today I met) the boy I'm gonna marry.'"
Two months after marrying Bell, Wood announces she is expecting the couple's first child. "Remember when I said, 'No baby on the way here' – Well, I didn't know there actually was!" she writes on Twitter, sharing a photo of the book What to Expect When You're Expecting. "We are very happy. I'm gonna be a mama!" In July, the couple announces the birth of their son, with Wood's rep saying, "Parents and baby are all doing well."
Less than one year after welcoming a son together, Wood and Bell split. "Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell have decided to separate," their rep says in a statement. "They both love and respect one another and will of course remain committed to co-parenting their son. This is a mutual decision and the two remain close friends."
