Evan Rachel Wood just clapped back hard at a fan who suggested she can’t act on “Westworld”
Evan Rachel Wood is many things. She’s an outstanding actress, an accomplished model, and an amazing singer. She is *NOT,* by any means, an incompetent performer, and she knows it. So when someone on the internet who presumably doesn’t have anything better do with their lives took a jab at her acting abilities, Wood clapped back so hard, the troll probably got whiplash.
On Sunday, April 29th, when the latest episode of Westworld was airing, a Twitter user questioned Wood’s acting talent. “Why is Dolores still the only ‘robot’ on #Westworld without a personality?” the troll asked. “Oh. I know why. It’s because @evanrachelwood can’t actually act anything but 2 emotions.” Um, I don’t know, hater, maybe because she literally plays an android on the show?! false
To be fair, the user only said this because they wanted Wood to “do better,” but the actress got wind of the tweet anyway, and responded with a series of (now-deleted, but obtained by BuzzFeed) perfect comebacks, explaining what it takes to star in a hit TV show like Westworld.
"Hmm. Maybe you should put on the corset in 113 degree weather, spend time away from your family, risk your life on horse-back, cry at the drop of a hat and relive your traumas over and over and over, be dragged and beaten till all hours of the night, sacrifice your childhood to work and take acting classes 5 times a week, and work your entire life fighting through criticism and sexism to make it on this show, THEN show me how its done. Oh and while you’re at it, take off all your clothes and sit here for 6 hours in perfect posture too."
She ended her clapback by posting a video of her character, Dolores, riding a horse, and saying: “So I am just gonna keep doing what I’m doing because its working out pretty good for me and I thoroughly enjoy it.” “Byyyyyeeeeeeee!”
Damn, girl! Now that’s how you shut down a troll!
You can now catch Evan Rachel Wood and her *phenomenal* acting on season 2 of Westworld, airing Sundays on HBO at 9 p.m. ET.
