Wood: 'Manson Brought Out The Goth In Me'

Actress EVAN RACHEL WOOD has credited her ex-boyfriend MARILYN MANSON with helping her discover her inner Goth, insisting the shock rocker was the first person to fully appreciate her dark side.
The odd couple began its romance last year (08), parting ways in October (08), but reconciling in 2009.
The relationship recently came to an end for the second time but Wood insists she has no regrets about dating such a controversial figure - because she could always be herself around him.
And Wood admits Manson gave her the strength to stand up to her stylist about her red carpet attire - allowing her to indulge her darker dress sense in public.
She tells the DailyBeast.com, "I would want to do something really dark or vintage or over-the-top for an award show, but my people would be like, ‘It makes you look old, let’s keep you young and fresh and light and fluffy.’ And I hadn’t gotten my voice yet, so I was just like, ‘OK, you’re right, I suck, I’ll wear what you say.'
"But then I met (Manson), and I found somebody who appreciated all those things about me that I thought were wrong. He liked the music I liked, the way I dressed, the people I hung out with.
"I was raised thinking that a relationship like that was just completely wrong. But I can’t choose who I fall in love with, and I’m not going to not do something that makes me happy just because people disapprove. It seemed natural to us and that was all that mattered.”

Ok Wood you are such a bitch. First you make Manson love you then you stomp on his heart, then you do it all over again. No s**t Manson taught you to be strong do you realy think someone as high and mighty as Mr. Marilyn f**king Manson needs a worm like you. Stop playing games because its just plain wrong you never disirved a man as wonderful as him anyways. Manson is better off without your childish games.

why did you get rid of manson if you think so highly of him?makes no sense at all!you never loved him,or you'd still be with him!it sounds to me that you got with manson,he became your identity,and now you think you know who you are-you're done with him.you're just a little girl who's shopping for somebody else to bring out a different identity you have.i think you're a pathetic baby that needs to be completely alone for a very a long time to find yourself,instead of depending on other people for your identity!you hurt men,and that seems to be okay with you.you don't care just as long as you get what you want.you're just a typical whore who doesn't know anything about the real life!i hope you get somebody who totally destroys you-in all aspects of the word!!!what you did to manson was totally wrong!!!you hurt him,and it's like-so what?why do you care?you're an ugly -itch!!!
