Evan Rachel Wood - "Arena" Magazine
Evan Rachel Wood is featured in the November 2007 issue of Arena Magazine. She had her first on-screen kiss at nine, played jailbait to Ed Norton‘s dreepy cowboy at 16 and is now, aged 19, dating the anti-Christ. ERW sure doesn’t waste time…
On releasing her own record after proving her singing chops in “Across the Universe”: Oh yeah, I would really love to. I’m probably even more passionate about music than acting, but I don’t want to do it half-assed. And when I do, I get to deal with the rumors flying around that my boyfriend wrote all my songs and that I’m just using him for a singing career! Wouldn’t that be great?
If young girls really are that smart, calculating and evil as the gruesome teenagers she’s portrayed in films: People underestimate teenage girls. You turn on MTV and watching 19-year-olds on these dating shows and they’re just morons, so society thinks that’s what teenage girls are like. It’s not all alcohol and causal sex and breasts — some of us do have a brain, so it’s been really important to me to play those characters. When I was 14 or 15, there was nobody in the public eye for me to relate to., Maybe Jodie Foster, but that was back in the day. And I was getting mad until I thought, ‘Why do I have to wait for someone to do it for me? I’ll do out and do it myself.
