I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls... I'm into androgyny in general.— Evan Rachel Wood
The most lust Evan Rachel Wood quotes that are free to learn and impress others
Authentic and free. The Gucci guilty woman is about living in the moment. She's a modern woman, someone who really owns herself and her sensuality. It's supposed to be a very empowering and sensual fragrance.
I am trying to be a good person. I am trying to be myself, and if nobody likes me for me, that is their problem.
I'm a big karaoke fan and I also love Justin Bieber unashamedly.
And, look, I'm sorry if I have blond hair and blue eyes and my boyfriend looks like a vampire. What do you want me to do about it?
Dear God, I've done so many crazy hair colors and outfits and makeup looks where I look back and it's like, What the hell was I doing? You can't be afraid to make mistakes, you have to take risks. We all have those moments we look back on and wish weren't captured on film, but we're not alone in that.
I got the part [in Into the Forest], I started taking ballet again to try to regain my strength back. I actually love that it was changed to Crystal Pite's modern dance. And I wouldn't even really call it modern dance because it feels like it's in its own genre.
We trusted the writers and showrunners [in Westworlds] so much because they're so brilliant and the writing's so incredible. It really was like playing Marco Polo, where you just kind of followed their voice and they would lead you to water.
Getting to share a project with Anthony Hopkins is incredible.
It's like watching Da Vinci paint or something - you're reminded why you do what you do.
You always have that moment where you grow up and you're like, "Oh, my god, I'm being exactly like my mother." I think that's everyone's greatest hope and worst fear.
There's really barely any sex in [The Westworlds].
But there is a lot of nudity. And it was always described to me as being done in a way that was supposed to be kind of sterile and mannequin-like and dehumanizing.
I think it's a feminine energy, not necessarily men versus women, but a nurturing, mothering, loving energy. I think definitely. But I think you need a balance of both. I think right now we're just so in the extremes and people are just conditioned and given these gender assignments very early on.
All my life people have made fun of me because I was so skinny.
They kind of made me feel bad about it sometimes. I worried that maybe people will think I am really anorexic.
I did my first nude scene in Mildred Pierce, and that was absolutely terrifying, but it was for an important part of the film and for a reason, and it's incredibly powerful. It's not gratuitous. I think the stuff they show on MTV is so much worse.
I've made my own music, and the way I've always described it is Peggy Lee with an electric guitar, or Billie Holiday with some PJ Harvey in there.
I definitely think there is a shift happening right now in terms of visibility, but there's still a choice you make as a public figure on what to do or how to present your sexuality.
We all just kinda did everything we thought we were supposed to do and girls dated the guys they were supposed to and did things with the guys they were supposed to.
I've always had a real fascination with Alice in Wonderland and really related to it in some way. And since I was little, people always nicknamed me Alice, even total strangers. I do know I'm always in Wonderland. And I'm definitely just as curious. I don't mind being amongst the mad people, I enjoy it.
I couldn't stop throwing theories at [Jimmi Simpson], and eventually I was like, "I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I will stop talking about the show [Westworlds]. I promise."
Ellen [Page] and I had only met a couple of times, but had mutual admiration for each other's work. When I first heard about the film [Into the Forest], I was excited to get a chance to work with one of my peers because it's usually one or the other. You don't get to work with all of the other actors that you're usually competing with.
You just knew you were in great hands with somebody so talented, so bright and with such depth. We both [with Ellen Page] loved the script and the book [Into the Forest], which I read after I read the script, and highlighted it and dog-eared it to craziness.
Lisa Joy is so incredible, and she's always on set making sure everyone is okay and being respectful. We have a zero-tolerance policy on that set [ in the Westworlds]. If anyone is inappropriate or makes you uncomfortable, they're literally gone in two seconds. It's no joke. It's very professional.
The biggest lessons I've learned in life have probably come from a bad situation, from an angry situation, even if I wasn't the one who was angry.
When people were very concerned about the violence against women, I encouraged people to stick with it because it was going somewhere and there was a reason why. It's all a commentary on gender roles and women and having to be the damsel or to stay on the ranch or to stay at home.
I think people are really starting to rebel against that.
And I think there's going to be more and more gray areas. Hopefully that means we'll see more stories with characters that could be interchangeable with men.
The running joke on set [of the Westworlds] was that everyone at some point thinks that they're Anthony Hopkins. Like, "Guys, I think I'm Dr. Ford. I'm Anthony Hopkins. That's the twist." We love all of the theories. Part of the fun of that show is figuring it out.
Anytime you have to get intimate on camera, it's always a little interesting.
You have to trick your brain almost, so that you don't get stage fright or get too much in your head where you're super uncomfortable.
What I normally do as an actor in playing different roles, I just have to do in a span of three seconds sometimes, so I think I'm lucky that I've been doing it so long that I can do it rather quickly.
That's why I love music so much. It completely saved me. There are so many feelings you can't explain, and you can hear one note on a guitar and somehow that sound explains what you can't put into words.
I love the contrast of this side of [Dolores from the Westworlds] coming out, this tough fighter coming through this sort of Disney princess. There's something really powerful about that. But I was really excited to get some pants.
I try to stay out of the public eye as much as possible because I want people to be able to watch my films and not be distracted.
I love that this film [Into the Forest] has a balance.
Whenever I start freaking out and getting stressed, I have to remember that this is just the beginning.
I wasn't doing it to shock anybody or to be rebellious or to get attention making "Heart-Shaped Glasses" with Marilyn Manson. I was more proud of that than anything because it took a lot of strength and bravery to put myself out there like that. It was a risk. I'm glad that I did it because usually the best things I've done have come from the biggest risks. Thirteen was a risk and that was amazing.
I feel like maybe I'm going to be in with the robots because they'll see the show [Westworld] and think I'm one of them.
It was really the dream role, and when they first cast me, and I started playing Dolores [in the Westworlds] and all I knew was the analysis mode and her prairie-girl character, I thought, "Yeah, of course I can do this, and I'm good at it, but why did they pick me?" Not because I'm not capable, but I'm also kind of a tomboy, edgy, so I was curious.
J.J. Abrams and Jonah Nolan and Lisa Joy, who are brilliant people, so I knew it [Westworld] was going to be amazing.
What's amazing about this show [Westworld], and what it gives us permission to do, is to be kind of superhuman. Because at the end of the day, [Dolores] she's not a male and she's not a female. She's evolved past that. She's a very highly advanced being, and so I think it's really going to knock down a lot of stereotypes and a lot of gender roles and be a neutral party.
I would want my son to value himself as a person.
To hold himself to a higher standard, and to not listen to all the stuff that's shoved down men's throats about what they're supposed to do and how they're not supposed to feel. I want him to know that he's a person and he's allowed to have emotions and be vulnerable. That doesn't mean he's not strong.
You don't have to take yourself so seriously all the time.
If I'm going to do anything extreme, I want it to have consequences.
I was always pale. And I'm glad that I can be open about my paleness now.
I have to go through that arc with Dolores, and I didn't know what my arc was going to be. We found out episode by episode, and the more it went on, the more I felt a change in myself and allowed myself to be strong and to get angry and to access emotions that I don't normally, and I think a lot of women don't because we're kind of conditioned not to. It's freed me in a way, and it made me find a strength in myself.
I always feel like one of the guys and very unintimidated.
When we shot that [Westworld], it was so funny.
Not funny - I mean, like, funny-strange because I, personally as an actress and as a person, am so used to having to play the damsel, that when we were shooting that scene, and Jimmi looked at me and said, "Dolores, run," I ran. Then I stopped myself, and I turned around and I went, "Oh my God. I'm so used to running."
I love Ellen [Page] like family. And even if we don't hang out all the time, she's still just somebody that always has a place in my heart.
I like having surprises in the morning for each other on the bedside table, so when you wake up you have something immediately. Just like a little teaser. Then I think it's nice to stay in bed all morning. It's simple.
I was a mess when the movie [Into the Forest] ended and I had to say goodbye.
It was one of the hardest endings.
I actually fell asleep during one take with Jeffrey Wright because I relaxed myself so much. I just stayed so still that I just nodded off, and kind of snapped back into it in the middle of the scene.
I'm also a sucker for a view. Take me to a high place where I can see the landscape or the stars or the whole city, and I'm putty, I'm melting in your arms. Then I think having a romantic night, getting a little dressed up, but don't kill yourself trying to force the romance. A bunch of little subtle changes that will make the day more special will amount to a big awesome day in your memory. I like little breadcrumbs along the way. Draw it out!
