Evan Rachel Wood is opening up about her four-year relationship with rocker Marilyn Manson. The actress, who is married to Jamie Bell and is mother to a 4-month-old son, had a candid interview with the Daily Beast recently where she talked about the media's reaction to the years the wild pair dated, beginning back in 2006. "At the time I hadn't yet been exposed to that kind of cruelty from strangers. If people were wondering why I was acting so-called crazy or like a teenager, it's because I was. People go through phases. People make mistakes," she revealed.


The interesting couple started dating when she was just 19-years-old and he was 36, causing a ton of controversy in the press when the singer proposed to her onstage in Paris in January 2010, though they broke up later that year.

The 26-year-old actress explains that now she can relate to young Hollywood stars like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber. She said, "I was never a Bieber or a Cyrus, but I think the judgment was there, sure." And the self-confessed Belieber continued, "I can't imagine what it's like to be him. When you're a teenager in an adult career, people expect you to be perfect and expect you to never make mistakes or to be a reckless teenager. And then when you are, they give you such a really hard time for it. You have to remind them that you're still a kid."
