Evan Rachel Wood: "Running With Scissors"
Monday, October 16, 2006
Actress Evan Rachel Wood(whom you might recognize from Greenday's music video) plays Natalie Finch, a messed up high school kid from the 1970s, in the new film "Running With Scisors."

Wood, who rocketed to attention with her searing role in the indie hit "Thirteen,” was a perfect match for Natalie’s unusual blend of vivaciousness, secretiveness and fears of truly breaking away. Wood felt an affinity with Natalie, who she sees as being trapped between devotion to her family, no matter how crazy they are, and a burning need to forge her own identity.

Evan Rachel Wood initially responded to the raw unfiltered emotions of Ryan Murphy’s screenplay. "I love brutally honest scripts and I love material that no one has ever seen before and I really don’t think that anybody has ever seen a story quite like this one,” she says.

Snippets from a recent interview:

- "It was fun. I definitely have a whole new appreciation for the 70’s and for 70’s fashion and the music and all of that. Yeah, I had a lot of fun with that, and hair and makeup had a lot of fun with me (laughter) because I was the one they just totally let loose on."

- "Everyday I’d come to work and there would be a rack of clothes and we would just go through it."

- "It was just really open and everybody was really relaxed and laid back and Ryan Murphy is the most well dressed director I ever worked for. He always looked so cool on set with his white sun glasses and his jackets."

- "It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but it changed my life. It was also the most amazing experience I’ve ever had. I can’t even explain it. Just really, really special and just meant so much to everybody. I mean The Beatles mean so much to so many people, you know. Everybody has at least one song of The Beatles that’s one of their favorite songs of all time."

Evan Rachel Wood recently finished production on "King of California,” with Michael Douglas. In August, she started production on Vadim Perelman’s "In Bloom,” with Uma Thurman. In 2007, Wood can be seen starring in Julie Taymor’s highly anticipated musical film, "Across the Universe.”

"Running with Scissors” opens in theaters on October 20th.
