Evan Rachel Wood explains her reason for splitting with Marilyn Manson

September 17, 2011 - Washington

Actress Evan Rachel Wood has revealed that she is "glad" she ended her engagement to shock rocker Marilyn Manson, as they both had a lot of growing up to do.

Wood, 24, had been dating the rockstar since 2006 and split for a year, then got back in 2009 and got engaged in 2010.

The couple finally ended their relationship in August 2010 and even though they did not end up marrying each other, Wood said she did not regret the time she spent with Manson.

"I am glad - for both of us. We both have a lot more growing to do. I don't think it would've been right, but I am glad that we were engaged," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Marie Claire.

"I think we needed to make a statement to each other that it was legit. So that was good," she added.

The actress has been dating her former boyfriend Jamie Bell since then.
