Nice Jewish girl gone bad? Evan Rachel Wood engaged to Marilyn Manson
Oh, the horror! People magazine is reporting “True Blood” star Evan Rachel Wood is engaged to shock-rocker Marilyn Manson, best known for his frightening face paint and outlandish gothic style.
Manson, 41, reportedly proposed to the 22-year-old actress on stage during a performance in Paris last Monday. But the match doesn’t hold much promise for longevity, let alone Jewish offspring. According to reports, Manson and Wood began dating in 2006, but the couple has been on again/off again throughout the duration of their relationship. According to Wikipedia, the off-the-cuff proposal came only a month after they’d gotten back together from a split.
Wood, who currently stars on “True Blood” was born in Raleigh, North Carolina to a Jewish theatrical family. Her father, Ira David Wood III runs a community theater group and her mother, Sara Lynn Moore is an actress, director and acting coach. Wood is best known for her breakthrough role in “Thirteen” in which she played a precocious teenager tormented by the pressure to belong.
