On Friday, Ellen De Generes released a star-studded thank you video to the outgoing POTUS for all the wonderful things he did for the LGBT community. Stars like Neil Patrick Harris, Portia de Rossi, Colton Haynes, Evan Rachel Wood, and Lance Bass thanked Obama for changing the lives of LGBT Americans for the better! Between increasing visibility, fighting against conversion therapy, repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell, increasing trans awareness, and fighting for marriage equality, we owe this man so much. She also returned to television, playing the supporting role of Queen Sophie-Anne on True Blood from 2009 to 2011 and playing Kate Winslet's character's daughter in the HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce (2011), for which she was nominated for the Golden Globe and Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress.As of 2016, she plays the sentient android Dolores Abernathy in the HBO series Westworld, for which she won a Critics' Choice Award and earned a Golden Globe and Emmy Award nomination.Her personal life, particularly her relationship with Marilyn Manson, to whom she was previously engaged, has attracted press attention.Her father, Ira David Wood III, is a locally prominent actor, singer, theater director, playwright, and from a Christian family; he is the Executive Director of a local regional theatre company called Theatre in the Park.Former child star fought bad romances and anti-LGBTQ prejudice before channeling her craziness into paranoid-android role – and rebooting her life It's raining something biblical in Nashville, coming down like vengeance between the roadway signs for chicken wings and Jesus and Donald Trump. When Wood first met with showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, she wasn't told much of what would happen to her character, but she was told a lot about the world in which it would happen and the existential questions Dolores would pose – both to herself and the viewers. Which means that today, wearing inconspicuous black in a town where she recently moved knowing almost no one, the single mom is currently the highest-ranked star on IMDb, even if she still might best be known for dating Marilyn Manson a decade ago.And here, inside a farm-fresh joint called Butcher and Bee, at a table spread with pickled okra and fried chicken and kale, Evan Rachel Wood is questioning the nature of our reality, the cogs and wheels that have created this very scene, up to and possibly including the guy posted up at the bar who looks like an older Elvis, if Elvis were crazy tall and wearing vintage tweed."What if this is all bullshit? This is because Westworld has been, by most accounts, a breakout success.
To then-teenaged Evan Rachel Wood, this was just romance on top of romance.Not long after, Wood and the “Beautiful People” singer — who was married to Dita Von Teese at the time — began dating.(Manson and Von Teese, now 44, divorced in December 2007.) "I met somebody that promised freedom and expression and no judgments," Wood, who played a Lolita-like character in Manson’s racy 2007 music video for “Heart-Shaped Glasses,” told Rolling Stone."The showrunners and HBO warned me, ' You know, your life's probably going to change after this,'" she says.Strange advice to give someone who has been in the business for more than 20 years, but correct nonetheless.
