Westwood actress and Once and Again alum, Evan Rachel Wood opens up about her ex Marilyn Manson in a new interview and her honesty about the controversial relationship is totally refreshing.

Wood has always had an impressive acting career and has been in the spotlight since she was a young girl, but now she’s opening up about her intense relationship with Manson — which lasted four years, on and off, from 2007 and 2011 — and we’re all ears.

The 29-year-old actress met Manson in 2006 at West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont when she was only 18 years old.

Wood was later in Manson’s 2007 music video for “Heart-Shaped Glasses,” which was very racy, and controversial as was her romance with Manson, who was 18 years older than her.

Despite her confidence in her choice to pursue the relationship — which resulted in an engagement in 2010 — Wood revealed she did receive a lot of negative attention for dating Manson. Those rude comments and backlash however, just helped her become stronger as an individual.

Wow. We applaud her honesty! Evan, you go girl!
