Evan Rachel Wood opened up about her past four-year relationship with Marilyn Manson, which received a lot of criticism from the public.
The actress began dating the rocker when she was 19 and he was 36. They also got engaged in 2010.
"People were pretty mean," the 26-year-old told The Daily Beast. "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."
The Charlie Countryman star married fellow actor Jamie Bell in October 2012, whom she had dated prior to her relationship with Manson. In July, Wood gave birth to the couple's first son and she's attempting to keep him away from the limelight as much as possible.
"I've done my best to keep his picture from being taken, just because kids don't really have a choice in the matter," she also told the publication. "It's such a shame when kids get harassed just because of who their parents are before they're old enough to decide who they are or who they want to be."
During the interview, Wood also spoke about Justin Bieber, who has recently been getting into trouble, including an alleged fight with a neighbor in March.
"I can't imagine what it's like to be him," she said. "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."
