She’s happily married to Jamie Bell, with whom she recently had a baby boy, and Evan Rachel Wood seems pretty thrilled with how her life has turned out.

However, the “Wrestler” actress was subjected to some harsh criticism back in 2006 when she began a four-year romance with “Dope Show” rocker Marilyn Manson.

Wood told The Daily Beast, "People were pretty mean. At the time I hadn't yet been exposed to that kind of cruelty from strangers.”

"If people were wondering why I was acting so-called crazy or like a teenager, it's because I was. People go through phases. People make mistakes. People go through life and don't get it right every time."

Evan also noted that she sympathizes with the younger stars of today. "I was never a Bieber or a Cyrus, but I think the judgment was there, sure. I can't imagine what it's like to be him. When you're a teenager in an adult career, people expect you to be perfect and expect you to never make mistakes or to be a reckless teenager. And then when you are, they give you such a really hard time for it. You have to remind them that you're still a kid."
