Evan Rachel Wood is "open" to dating men and women.

The 'Wrestler' star - who was previously engaged to shock rocker Marilyn Manson - is happy to be single at the moment because she is learning more about herself, but says when she is ready to embark on a new relationship, personality is the most important factor for her not what gender the person is.

She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I've stayed single since last summer. I was in relationship after relationship and everyone told me, 'You need to spend some time alone and get to know yourself,' and I was terrified of doing that, but now I'm so glad that I've taken this time.

"But I don't even have rules about dating guys or girls. I'm open. I've always been attracted to both sexes. I'm attracted to people's confidence, rather than what sex they are - the way they carry themselves and their personalities."

While she is openly bisexual, the 23-year-old actress isn't happy to date people who are her own age.

She said: "I can't date guys my own age. I just can't relate to men in their 20s. So right now 30 is the cut-off."

Although Wood's on/off relationship with Manson finally ended in August 2010, the screen beauty insists she will always love the 'Antichrist Superstar' singer but accepts the time was right for them to break-up.

She said: "I'll always love him - we were engaged - but I think we were both ready to move on."
