Evan Rachel Wood: ‘My bisexuality is real’

Jessica Geen October 6, 2011

Evan Rachel Wood says her bisexuality is “for real”.

The True Blood actress, who has dealt firmly with suggestions that her orientation is a phase, told GQ she had been attracted to men and women since she could remember.

Interview Mickey Rapkin asked: “You broke off your engagement to Manson in August of 2010, and then earlier this year you came out as a bisexual. Was that a one-girl thing?”

Wood replied: “No, that’s for real. I’ve been that way since I can remember.

“I remember growing up and loving when I knew there was a girl like me who I looked up to. I figured I should return the favor. You don’t have to be ashamed.”

The star, 24, recently described her first relationship with a woman as “wonderful” but admitted she was “intimidated” at first.

She told Marie Claire: “I mean, it was terrifying at first. Not because I thought it was wrong but just because I was intimidated by women. It’s a totally different arena!”
