Evan Rachel Wood Is All About The Character


So, do you remember when everyone was saying Mickey Rourke and Evan Rachel Wood were caught making out after the SAG Awards? Yeah, and everyone thought it was kind of gross that a 56 year old man and a 21 year old woman would be doing that, but it was Mickey Rourke and Evan Rachel Wood so at that point basically all the natural order of things ceases to exist in any kind of relationship.

Anyway, Evan Rachel Wood was highly distraught by the accusation that she might be caught making out with a much older guy. Oh, wait. Evan that wasn't you f**king that married older guy. What was his name? Oh yeah. Marilyn Manson.

Now, the funny thing is that unlike most celebrities who are put in this position, she doesn't actually blame bloggers, or tabloids. Well, I mean she does for making it spread like a fire, but not for the original story. No, that special honor goes to Mr. Rourke himself. As she told Rolling Stone,

"I’m upset because I feel disrespected by the press and by Mr. Rourke." So, what I think she is saying here is that Mickey might have spread the word that he was doing the groping and kissing with Evan. So, basically he wants everyone to know that even though he is 56, he can still get a 21 year old actress when he wants her. Good to know Mickey. So, if Evan had left it that, I think we would have all felt sorry for her, maybe said a silent apology and moved on to the next 40 year old guy she found. But, Evan decided she had a little more to say.

"Just because I’m single doesn’t mean that you can take advantage of me. It’s unfair that the performances might suffer because of all of these distractions."

Ummm. Evan. What performances? The movie finished a long time ago. You know that is what you have been watching up on the big wall with the pictures that move. Oh, and if you are talking about what people might think about your acting in it. Award season is over pretty much. So, just because Mickey said he made out with you didn't distract from the fact you were not nominated for anything for your performance. You were not going to get nominated anyway. So, tell us Evan. How do you feel about Mickey now that he has done this to you.

"I'm not attracted to him, he's too old for me. Nothing ever happened and nothing ever will."

God save me for saying this, but given the choice, I'd do Rourke over Manson.

equinox said...

I'm not ashamed to say that I agree with you LMSM.

Good for Evan for speaking out though.

jax said...

she's such a thin girl i'm surprised she had the strength to throw Mickey under a bus.

everyone saw them making out, she needs to get a clue.

Mooshki said...

Right on the money, Jax.

Princess Buttercup said...

Yeah I have mixed feelings about this one. I don't like this girl at all. Everything that comes out of her mouth seems like a pathetic cry for attention. On the other hand...if Mickey was truly making unwanted advances then she has every right to speak out.

I wonder (and I think Enty is pretty much saying this as well) if she felt taken advantage of because he was groping her or because he ran his mouth.

No matter what I definitely don't buy the last sentence "I'm not attracted to him, he's too old for me. Nothing ever happened and nothing ever will." PUULEASE

Princess Buttercup said...

Slightly off topic but what is up with Evan's roots? She goes all out with dress, makeup, accessories, hairstyle, and then doesn't bother to touch up the roots? Maybe it is on purpose but I am not digging it.

My sister met Evan Rachel Woods. When Evan was 17, she was dating Marilyn Manson. When she was 18, she dated Edward Norton. My sister also said that Evan did shrooms with a group of people once, and accused all of the men in the room of trying to rape her. (No one was trying to rape her, she was just having a bad trip). It seems like she has a thing for older men and possibly a history of sexual abuse.

Ohh daddy issues...

jax said...

Pink Skull, are you saying she dated MAnson before he married Dita and then during the marriage as well?

ok not only is that all kinds of fucked up,but illegal is it not?

Mickey Rourke is just so effing gross and disgusting. I just don't get it.

Anyone here ever read Joe Queenan's article on Rourke, printed in (now defunct) MovieLine magazine? Later reprinted in his book, "If You're Talking to Me, Your Career Must Be in Trouble"

In this article, Queenan decides to be Mickey Rourke for a day. He starts preparations five days in advance by not bathing... It's a hysterically funny piece. And it perfectly sums up my feelings about that douche.

Re: Evan - the rumours were sort of vague and there are several variations, including which floor they made out on. Didn't it start with and "anonymous" source? I dunno, there's nothing vague about her rebuttal to these rumours.

Princess Buttercup, I was thinking the same thing. She looks good other than the roots.

She's become a huge attention whore.

Judi said...

Ditto, Little Miss and Equinox. LOL @ Jax!
She's pretty clear that nothing happened so I'm going to go with that.

Caroline said...

She reminds me of one of those girls in high school who changes for whoever she is going out with or whoever is cool at the time.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

Yeah, a total attention whore, but I think she is pretty.

Baited Breath said...

It looks like she is still trying to copy Dita....personally I think she is a lost little girl.

Jerry said...

...he wants everyone to know that even though he is 56, he can still get a 21 year old...

Hey Mickey - chew on this: I'm 57 and I have a 19 year old. Except mine's parked in the driveway.

OFF Topic here,I've had my share of mistakes with
Miz Clairol and the kitchen
sink but I haven't seen such an unappealing hair color on purpose(?) on female celebrity's head like that in long time.

Mooshki said...

B626, it's left over from her Marilyn Manson stage. She's getting better all the time, and eventually I think she'll make it back to pretty instead of cheap plastic doll.

I unfortunately went to see The Wrestler and it SUCKED. Mickey Rourke was not that good at all, the story was lame and uninteresting and not touching at all. The character development was shit and the relationships between the characters didn't even make much sense. That director must have some fantastic connections in Hollyweird to get such good publicity 'cause that movie was way, WAY-overrated crap.
