Evan Rachel Wood is Bisexual, Toppy, Romantic, Will Pay For Dinner

Evan Rachel Wood is bisexual. She told Esquire Magazine all about it very recently so it’s a super big deal. I mean just google “Evan Rachel Wood bisexual.” She’s like the new Anna Paquin! Im going to type “Evan Rachel Wood Bisexual” a few more times. Evan Rachel Wood Bisexual.

No but really — I think we all could deduce, at least, that Evan Rachel Wood Bisexual had a fairly progressive view of gender after her on-again off-again and passionate long-term relationship with Marilyn Manson, who she told the press she liked because he wore eyeliner.

From the oh-so-tastefully-and-not-remotely-objectifying titled article “Evan Rachel Wood: A Guided Tour of a Woman We Love”:

“I love [Oh! You Pretty Things!]! I grew up in love with David Bowie.*”


She has a tattoo on her upper thigh to prove it, a heart with an Aladdin Sane lightning bolt.) “So I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls … I’m into androgyny in general.” She says this helps explain the appeal of her ex Marilyn Manson.

Later on in the interview:

“I’m up for anything. Meet a nice guy, meet a nice girl…”

This is the third such hint in the conversation, after that androgyny comment and saying she’d “marry” her Mildred Pierce costar Kate Winslet if she could.

You date women?

“Yes,” she says proudly, as if she was waiting to be asked.

Do you look for different things in men than in women?

“Yeah, I’m more kind of like the guy when it comes to girls. I’m the dominant one.” It’s with women, she says, that her inner North Carolina gentleman comes out: “I’m opening the doors, I’m buying dinner. Yeah, I’m romantic.”

We spent most of the day scratching our heads thinking that surely this isn’t the first time Evan Rachel Wood has mentioned being Bisexual. Were we confusing Evan Rachel Wood with the plethora of lesbionic characters played by Evan Rachel Wood? I mean, Evan Rachel Wood is right up there with Mischa Barton, Piper Perabo and Olivia Wilde, among others, as a frequently kissing other girls on the screen/teevee.

See back in 2007, Evan Rachel Wood told YRB Magazine:

“I’m not a lesbian, but I don’t think it’s weird or gross or anything. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that I’m bisexual – I don’t sleep with women. But I definitely appreciate women and there have been times where I have been attracted to a woman,.”

“I’m not afraid of sexuality. I think too many people get called skanky or a whore just because they are sexual.”

She was 20 when she answered that question. Sometimes these celebrity self-outings — and our collective traceback to when they first broached the topic — are no different from our own stories. When we were younger many of us knew we were attracted to women but weren’t ready to let ourselves or the world know that we might sleep with them too. Then we broke up with our psychotic boyfriends and started looking for psychotic girlfriends. Evan Rachel Wood Bisexual is Just Like Us!

Clearly,here’s no day but today for an Evan Rachel Wood bisexual retrospective:

As straight but maybe bicurious teen Tracey Freeland in Thirteen (2003):


As lesbian teen Jessie Samier in Once & Again (2000):


As Kimberly Joyce in “Pretty Persuasion” (2005)



As Sophie-Anne Leclerq in True Blood (2010):



More importantly, Esquire reported that Evan Rachel Wood would like “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” played at her funeral, which is badass, but also somewhat alarming because I think Pink Floyd wrote that song for Syd Barret, who got really fucked up with drugs and was therefore much like a crazy diamond because he was like receding but also brilliant.

Anyhow hopefully Evan Rachel Wood will date a girl or something so we can become unnaturally obsessed with her every move. Ideally Lindsay Lohan, so we can multi-task.

  1. Soooo EVW is a femme top? Just my type!

    But I guess since she probs won’t call me, she should get a different girlfriend so we can all ooh and aah over the amazingness that would undoubtedly be.

  2. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’m getting mixed feelings about her definition of androgyny.

    I never pictured Marilyn Mason as androgynous, he’s a rocker with make up. Like Kiss?

  3. I like her and I will like her more if this is true. Some are saying that she just said that to get attention (which is hopefully not true).

    I think that Autostraddle is the best site I’ve ever been. I am always reading your posts at work and I think this things in Autostraddle are not ridiculous.

    • I hope it’s not true either but I guess it’s easy to see why some may think that. Rarely do these high-profile women ever go on to date other women which gives credence to their claims that these women do it for the attention. The only one off the top of my head I can think of that actually does date women is Lohan. Evan Rachel Wood at least has the fact going for her that she’s played gay in more projects than the likes of Barrymore, Jolie, Fox and Paquin. So that’s something.

  4. She has been particularly girl crazy for over 6 months now. With the interview out there, it will be intriguing to see if she is less reticent about being seen with hot female dates.

  5. okay. okay you guys. i need to use capitals for a moment. please. i will try to keep it brief.


    oh god, i think i knew this all along. this is excellent, excellent news. fuckyes for childhood gaydar!

    • I had to use the damn search engine to go all the way back here and figure out why Evan Rachel Wood Bisexual.

      It feels a bit like building a time machine and successfully traveling back to exciting times like ancient Greece or the medieval era, when murder through poisoning and thinking the Earth is flat were still a thing.

      Only, way more exciting.

  6. There is definitely not enough EVAN RACHEL WOOD BISEXUAL in this article. I mean, how else are you going to go from 2nd to 1st page in the EVAN RACHEL WOOD google search results ?! EVAN RACHEL WOOD BISEXUAL ALL THE WAY PEOPLE !


    but can i just say that my first thought after reading the title of this post was that i still don’t know who amber heard is and now i gotta find out who the hell EVAN RACHEL WOOD BISEXUAL is?

  8. EVAN RACHEL WOOD BISEXUAL is a long standing love of mine. We broke up for a while when she was dating my mortal enemy gross Marilyn Manson but then True Blood and everything’s fine now.

    Side note: True Blood is campy and crazy and hypersexualized to the point where it’s not remotely sexy anymore. Especially season 2. But I got interested in season three when everything got really gay. I always thought biting was hot, especially from a hot queer vampire, but actually seeing the blood did take some getting used to.

    But back to the love of my life EVAN RACHEL WOOD BISEXUAL. I heard this I was so sure she was queer prior to this that I swore I knew already. And it would be awesome if she could date Lindsay and then Nikki Reed could come out with Kristen Stewart and they could date and then the four of them could double.

    • Your last paragraph is basically my celebrity dream foursome.
      Throw in Mary Kate (shut up, I know she’s straight, just let me dream here, since the others are obviously megagay) or Jenny Lewis (same deal) and I die.

  9. did anyone see Chelsea Lately last night?? EVAN RACHEL WOOD BISEXUAL was the guest, and when asked about her current romance, got squirmy, pronoun-less, and would only admit to being “satisfied.”

    I was a bit surprised since she’s out and all–do you think her hesitation was PR related??
