Evan Rachel Wood loves getting older.

The 'Barefoot' star is looking forward to turning 28 next month because she's closer to getting out of the ''s**t'' twenties.

She said: ''I turn 28 in a couple of weeks and I can't wait! I love getting older. I feel like your twenties are such a s**t show, I just want to get to 30 and say, 'I made it!'''

And despite looking forward to ageing, Evan has no plans on ditching her love of dancing whenever she feels like it.

She added: ''I have these moments where I just want to dance! Part of me says, 'Don't, that's weird, people are going to stare!' but then there's this other voice that says, ''Who gives a s**t? You're going to die one day. Just dance!'''

The 'Thirteen' beauty also admitted she grew up as a very ''shy and insecure'' girl due to her sheltered childhood.

She told NET-A-PORTER's The EDIT magazine: ''I was very shy and insecure. I was expected to handle myself like an adult, but I didn't have the tools. All I knew was how to be an actor and work a red carpet. I didn't know what I wanted or who I was outside of the industry. You start thinking, 'Do people even like me as a person?'

''[My parents] didn't want anything bad to happen, so they held on tight - so tight that I couldn't breathe. And I pushed away really hard. I was like, 'Wait a minute, I didn't get to be a teenager and make mistakes!' I felt I'd been cheated.''
