Evan Rachel Wood has come out to reveal how Marilyn Manson raped her on set in 2007 when they were shooting a music video. According to the actress, Marilyn Manson who was then her boyfriend was 38 years and Evan Rachel Wood was 17 years old when the essential rape happened.
This revelation was made during a documentary about her life. From her narration, they discussed doing a simulated s3x scene for Manson’s song “Heart-Shaped Glasses (When the Heart Guides the Hand).” However during filming, Wood said her boyfriend Manson began“penetrating me for real” while she was barely conscious, having been given absinthe on set.
When the video came out finally many people said there was no simulation as the sex scene between Wood and Manson was graphic.
Here is what Evan had to say during the premiere of “Phoenix Rising,” at the Sundance film festival.
“We had discussed a simulated sex scene. But once the cameras were rolling, he started penetrating me for real,” she said.
“I had never agreed to that.”
“I didn’t know how to advocate for myself or know how to say no, because I had been conditioned and trained to never talk back, to just soldier through,” said Wood.
“I could tell that the crew was very uncomfortable and nobody knew what to do.
“I was coerced into a commercial sex act under false pretenses… I was essentially raped on camera.”
