Evan Rachel Wood’s relationship with Marilyn Manson ‘didn’t fail’

She learned a lot for Manson

Mrs. Carter: If the relationship is over then didn’t it fail?

‘Ides of March’ actress Evan Rachel Wood says that even though her relationship with rocker Marilyn Manson didn’t stand the test of time, that it also wasn’t a “fail”.

Wood says that she learned so much from her relationship with Manson that she chalks the experience up as a win and says that just because it didn’t work out in the long run doesn’t mean that it was a fail either.  Evan explains;

“Just because a relationship ends, it doesn’t mean that it failed. I don’t think I would be the person I am today without him. He is inspiring. The timing was right and I felt a door was open to me to really explore, express myself and take risks.”

Evan and Marilyn ended their engagement last year and rumor has it that Wood is dating British actor Jamie Bell.
