Actress Evan Rachel Wood Alleges Marilyn Manson ‘Essentially Raped’ Her on Music Video Set

Actress Evan Rachel Wood has accused disgraced rock musician Marilyn Manson of raping her while filing the music video for his 2007 single, “Heart-Shaped Glasses (When the Heart Guides the Hand).”

In “Phoenix Rising – Part 1: Don’t Fall,” a documentary about Wood’s life and career, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 23, Wood detailed her alleged abuse by Manson with whom she had a relationship with from 2007 to 2010.

Wood said in the documentary that in a previously discussed “stimulated sex scene” for the music video, Manson “started penetrating me for real.”

“I had never agreed to that. I’m a professional actress, I have been doing this my whole life, I’d never been on a set that unprofessional in my life up until this day. It was complete chaos, and I did not feel safe. No one was looking after me,” Wood said.

Wood described filming the video a “really traumatizing experience.”

“I felt disgusting and like I had done something shameful, and I could tell that the crew was very uncomfortable and nobody knew what to do,” Wood said.

Wood said that she was barely conscious to object to Manson’s alleged actions on the music video set.

“I was coerced into a commercial sex act under false pretenses. That’s when the first crime was committed against me and I was essentially raped on camera,” Wood said.

Wood also said that Manson gave her “really clear” instructions on what to tell journalists about the video.

Last year, Wood publicly accused Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, of abuse, and several women, including “Game of Thrones” actress Esmé Bianco came forward with their own abuse allegations against Manson.

Manson has denied all previous allegations against him.
