So back in late May Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell split. They'd been married for a little under two years, and had a baby boy together. It was already known that Evan is bisexual, so I heard a ton of rumors that Evan wanted to get a little strange from the ladies, instead of from her husband.
I find those rumors to be ridiculous, to be honest. If Evan hadn't said anything about being bisexual, then people would've claimed that they were too young, it was too stressful with a baby, and so on--anything else that anyone can think of that a young couple goes together that would break them up......instead of just breaking up, Evan and Jamie had to get a divorce. Especially since there were no substantiated cheating rumors about either of them.
But because Evan identifies as being bisexual--then she must obviously want to sleep with women. Because bisexual people can't be monogamous. At all. And that's why she left her husband. Because obviously her and her husband didn't decide that they were better off as friends (or maybe friends with benefits?). Or decide that they were not a couple in it for the long haul, and did not work well together, no matter how much they loved each other. Or decide that they really, really, really did not love each other the way a woman loves her husband, and a man loves his wife--and decide to separate.
But of course.
I don't see Jamie throwing any twitter shade on the mother of his child.
But then Us Weekly throws a wrench in those thoughts.
Evan is currently dating Katherine Moennig (Ray Donovan), as they were seen together on the 13th, at a Gala in Los Angelas, looking very couple-y. According to Us, Evan and Katherine started together after a 'couple of flirty tweets', back in February 2014--three months before Evan and Jamie separated.
Here are the tweets:
Just saw @katemoennig at a flea market. I turned to mush and ran. Love her!!
Now, God forbid I police a grown woman's tweets, but that last one made me cringe. Especially the last sentence. To me, that shows that her mind was on the dirty. Because I saw nothing in those tweets but someone who maybe had a crush on another someone (which wouldn't have even gone noticed or commented on negatively if those someone's weren't both women--especially in Hollywood), up until that last sentence.
I mean, maybe Evan was just playfully flirting--some people are like that. They flirt with everyone. But I find it just so....odd to do it on twitter like that. Because now that they're actually dating--people are going to point to those tweets and say that Evan left her husband to dip in the lady pond--and was probably doing so before they separated. Which I'm not sure is or isn't true anymore. At the very least, I think there was an emotional enchantment--which, I'm guessing that Evan shared with Jamie, and they talked about it, before deciding to separate. I think that's good.
But no matter what happened, I'm glad that Evan waited a few months (nearly five months) to be seen with her new honey. I think that's very respectful of her ex, and it shows maturity to me. To wait and see if you're compatible past the new rush of hormones. Kind of reminds me of Brangelina.

So recently Evan Rachel Wood was tweeted a picture of a cover for Vanity Fair that she had done back in 2003, when she was 15 years old. I'm guessing the tweeter was a fan, and had wanted to do something 'nice' to/for Evan, but Evan's response probably ended up making the fan feel sad. Hint: Evan's response wasn't "OMG, I remember how much FUN I had on this shoot!".
This is her response (okay, I am completely computer illiterate and have no clue how to screencap shizz) from her twitter:
I was almost in tears after this shoot. They tried that dress on me, I wasnt comfortable but they told me there was no time-- @katiexwright
Okay, I'll admit that my immediate reaction was to eyeroll at the story, especially since I had read it on a few different sites, and from the titles (mentioning Lindsey Lohan), I had expected to read a story about Lindsey Lohan mean girling Evan.
But then I actually thought about what she said.
How is this any different from what thousands of 15, 20, 30, 40, 50 year old women go through every single day?
Let's focus on the teenage girl aspect. Young girls are judged every single day. They're supposed to be pretty. They're supposed to dress nicely for school. They're supposed to get up an hour early and do their hair, before school. And then they go to school, where they are are all lined up, stared at and approved. By their peers. By everyone that knows them. By the media.
And it never goes away. When a woman gets older, she is expected to be all, end all. She's supposed to be fit and in shape. She has to always look her best. Have a good job, so that she can pay her own bills and not rely on anyone else to do it. And then, at home, she's supposed to do the majority of the cooking and cleaning. She is supposed to be everything to everyone. And it starts with looks. Because no matter how intelligent or successful a woman is at her job, it always, always comes back to looks. And that is not something that affects men.
So Evan was right to share her story (though I feel bad for the fan). So often in Hollywood, in real life, women are being pressured into being something that they are not, or don't want to focus all their being on. Women are put into boxes--especially in Hollywood. While men can simply just be.
