Evan Rachel Wood has upped her performance game since covering Justin Bieber in a Chinese karaoke bar — because last week, she sang for an A-list crowd including George Clooney!
The 23-year-old actress took the mic at the after-party for “The Ides of March” premiere at the Venice Film Festival last Wednesday, where she performed the classic 4 Non Blondes hit “What’s Up?” for a crowd including co-star Clooney and actress Robin Wright.
Wood, who sang in the film “Across the Universe” and once covered Bieber’s “Baby”, absolutely killed it … all while wearing a gorgeous Alessandra Rich gown.
After watching the video on TooFab, 4 Non Blondes singer Linda Perry says Evan did “Pretty damn good.”
Look at all the beautiful people! Marisa Tomei is wearing a Preen Fall 2011 ensemble. Evan Rachel Wood wore a suit by Dolce & Gabbana.
I’d like to know where costar Ryan Gosling is, however. He has a lead in the political drama… NY Times also noticed Ryan’s absense, and dug a little deeper!
Ryan Gosling raised eyebrows at the Venice Film Festival yesterday with his conspicuous absence from the premiere of “The Ides of March.” Gosling doesn’t just star in the film, as a press secretary seduced by Washington’s dark side, he’s directed by George Clooney (who plays the candidate.) Given Clooney’s status in Hollywood, one insider noted that Gosling’s failure to show was a “big deal,” especially since co-stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Evan Rachel Wood and Marisa Tomei made it to the red carpet.
Gosling’s work in the period crime flick “The Gangster Squad” has been reported as the reason he didn’t attend, and his rep explained to us that although shooting doesn’t begin until Sept. 6, Gosling has be in rehearsals “every day.” As for how Clooney felt about not having his leading man at the premiere, his rep did not respond by our deadline.
Evan Rachel Wood opens up in the new Esquire Magazine. She talks, amongst other things, about dating 38-year-old Marilyn Manson, when she was only 19.
Wood claims she “was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls … I’m into androgyny in general.” She says this is why she was attracted to Manson, and adds, “I think one of the things that freaked people out so much is that we looked so different.”
She says she’s not dating anyone right now, but if she was, she’d be open to dating a woman. “Yeah, I’m more kind of like the guy when it comes to girls. I’m the dominant one … I’m opening the doors, I’m buying dinner. Yeah, I’m romantic.”
