Evan Rachel Wood - Evan Rachel Wood learned Swedish to be happy

Evan Rachel Wood once learned Swedish because she was so unhappy in a relationship.

The 'Wrestler' actress - who is married to Jamie Bell and was previously engaged to Marilyn Manson - thinks people often lose their sense of self in a quest to make their partner happy, and when it happened to her, she was desperate to find some way to appreciate herself again.

She said: ''I think everyone feels a little of that when he or she starts dating - you just like someone so much that you'll do anything to make them happy.

''And in the process, you lose yourself and neglect your own feelings, and then one day you ask yourself, 'Why am I so unhappy?' I started learning another language. Swedish. That's probably the craziest thing I've ever done. It was a bad idea.''

Speaking Swedish isn't the only surprising skill the 25-year-old beauty has - her husband was recently stunned by her crocheting talent when she decided to craft a blanket for their unborn baby.

She told website The Daily Beast: ''Obviously, I'm pregnant and I looked at my husband one day and I was like, 'I'm going to crochet the baby a blanket!' And he was like, 'What?' And then I got all the supplies and started crocheting this blanket in front of him, and he was like, 'Are there any other hidden talents I should know about? I had no idea you could crochet!' ''

Evan hopes to instill her love of music in her baby, and is delighted by a special gadget she has been gifted by one of her friends.

She explained: ''My friend Toby got me this belt that you put around the belly so it's like Surround Sound, and I found all these great lullaby renditions of rock 'n roll songs, like Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, and Radiohead. It's awesome.''
