‘True Blood’ vamp Evan Rachel Wood has let it be known: She’s bisexual.

‘I grew up in love with David Bowie,’ she told Esquire. ‘So I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls ... I’m into androgyny in general,’ she said, which is why ex-fiance Marilyn Manson was so appealing.

‘I’m more kind of like the guy when it comes to girls. I’m the dominant one. I’m opening the doors, I’m buying dinner. Yeah, I’m romantic.’

Wood, 23, stars in HBO’s ‘Mildred Pierce’ with Oscar winner Kate Winslet, whom she said she’d marry if she could. She also stars in Robert Redford‘s ‘The Conspirator’ and George Clooney‘s upcoming flick ‘The Ides of March.’ You might have also seen her in ‘The Wrestler’ or ‘Thirteen.’

‘I’m constantly changing, I’m constantly growing. I think I’m a little controversial?’ Wood said. ‘I just try and keep some mystery, so hopefully people can’t really put their finger on it.’

The actress said she doesn’t do drugs, recently quit smoking and doesn’t drink much. But it was her affinity for tattoos and androgyny that she kept revisiting for the mag.


‘I’m up for anything. Meet a nice guy, meet a nice girl,’ she teased.

Perhaps she’s following in her costar Anna Paquin‘s footsteps, who last April famously announced her sexual preferences in a PSA with Cyndi Lauper and Clay Aiken.
