Man, we were joking before about how it was just a matter of time before Evan Rachel Wood became morphed into Dita Von Teese by Marilyn Manson.

But if you peep the photos below, you'll see Manson's teenage actress girlfriend really is starting to look more and more like his estranged former wife!

Swine Flu Victim

It's a transformation as strange as it is inevitable.

Next thing you know, Marilyn will be pushing Evan Rachel Wood into girl-on-girl action and she'll be stripping for money in a giant martini glass. Or something.

Somehow Marilyn Manson has seen both Dita Von Teese nude and Evan Rachel Wood naked. We totally should have gone into the goth shock rock profession.

A sexy Evan Rachel Wood kept her white (hot!) gloves on during a special screening of her new musical romance, Across The Universe, Thursday.

The film opens in theaters nationwide next Friday, September 21. Oh, Evan's boyfriend, Marilyn Manson, waited on the sidelines during the screening.

Swine Flu Victim

Evan Rachel Wood says she isn't a fan of celebrity gossip, but she also recently told reporters that she doesn't see much of a point in complaining about it.

"I don't buy when people say [being harassed by celebrity photo agencies] is not their fault, because there is a way to control it. My experience with being famous and other celebrities has convinced me I wasn't built for it," she said.

"Maybe it was the way I was brought up, but it is really terrifying for me when a bunch of people are staring at me or chasing me. The other night, people were jumping on the car and banging on the windows. I don't think people know how scary that is. It is like a strange dream. It becomes animalistic to me, and creepy. But I try my best to stay out of it."

As for Marilyn Manson, he's a weird guy. But he's seen both Evan Rachel Wood and Dita Von Teese nude, so you have to kinda give him props.

Evan Rachel Wood. It's not just for Marilyn Manson anymore.

Well, she is where it counts the most. But in her most recent photo spread for GQ, it appears as if Evan Rachel Wood decided to let a nipple slip. See for yourself.

Evan Rachel Wood is a cute girl, and this a hot photo, but what a tease.

For crying out loud, look at Marilyn Manson's ex-wife! Every other photo we see is of Dita Von Teese naked! You've got big shoes to fill, Evan Rachel!

In case you were wondering, there is a video online of Evan Rachel Wood having sex. With her boyfriend. Marilyn Manson. Who is 38.

Not one of those amateur sex tapes, mind you, but a real music video.

Oh, and the sex involves lots of blood, strangulation, and shrieking orgasms. And rumor has it that it's real. This is something all should see (or be terrified of).

Yes, Evan Rachel Wood's inspiration to make a sex video with her boyfriend, shock rocker Marilyn Manson, was to "show that it's okay to have different, weird ideas about romance."

"At the end of the video, we're kissing and it's raining blood ... and for me, that was the most romantic moment of my life," Wood, 19, says in the September issue of GQ.

The music video for Marilyn Manson's song, "Heart-Shaped Glasses" - in which Wood does not have actual sex, she claims - has caused quite a stir.

But to hear the actress' description, it's artistic and sentimental
.

"We made it for each other. Because that's how we were feeling at the time: Even though ugliness can be all around you... you can literally be in a thunderstorm of blood. If you look past that, it really is just two people holding on to each other.

"And you know, the same thing with the sex scene. If you're going to have a sex scene, that's what it is," Evan Rachel Wood said.

"When you're with someone and you're in love, that's usually what happens. It's not always soft. Sometimes it's somebody screaming or whatever."

The self-described "shy, painfully shy" teenager says that her "healthy and loving" relationship with Manson would surprise people - as would how loudly the man snores, which, she says, in fact lulls her to sleep.

ABOVE: Evan Rachel Wood looking rather cute in her underwear. Yeah. Marilyn Manson hits this, and used to see Dita Von Teese naked. Where did we go wrong?

"For the first time," Evan Rachel says, "I really feel like I'm around somebody and in an environment where I can just let go and not worry about being judged."

"And, look, I'm sorry if I have blond hair and blue eyes and my boyfriend looks like a vampire. What do you want me to do about it?"

Well... good point.

Wood has three films out this fall, including Across the Universe, in which she stars as a woman in the whirl of the anti-Vietnam War movement. The film is a kind of Beatles rock opera, and Evan Rachel Wood even sings her own songs.

"I think it's some of the most personal acting I've ever done, because I'm more aware of myself now. Before, I didn't realize how therapeutic acting was for me ... how much of myself I was letting out," she said.

Asked to sum up the appeal of new boyfriend Marilyn Manson in just one word, Evan Rachel Wood doesn't hesitate:

"Eyeliner."

"If you've ever dated me, then you would have ended up wearing eyeliner at some point," she tells the British edition of Elle in its August issue. "All my boyfriends have."

Of course, at 19, Wood is barely older than Hayden Panettiere, so how many guys could have even dated her by now? No beef here, just asking.

Makeup aside, Wood says the rocker - whom she calls simply "Manson" - is "lovely, really human and just amazing. It may surprise you just how healthy and loving our relationship is."

"He's crazy... and crazy, by the way, is the highest compliment I pay. Manson is definitely crazy. Hopefully I am, too," she added.

Wood and Manson, twice her age at 38, met at the Chateau Marmont in L.A., with "both of us hiding in the corner of a party neither of us wanted to be at."

She says they became "movie buddies," until one night - after he separated from wife Dita Von Teese in December 2006 (Dita Von Teese filed for divorce five days later) - "we suddenly just looked into one another's eyes and knew."

HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP NOTE: Other sources have said that Manson's relationship with Wood was a factor in Dita Von Teese's decision to file for divorce.

HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP NOTE #2
: Evan Rachel Wood has got her work cut out for her if she wants to compete with a Dita Von Teese nude in a martini glass!

Despite Marilyn Manson's reputation as a hard partier, Wood says she is "hopeless at drinking." Asked about drugs, she says: "I'm not saying I'm an angel, I just don't have an addictive personality. Even today, with Manson, I'm happier staying home watching movies."

She also gushes about the influence Marilyn Manson has had on her:

"You should see his house, omigod, it's a hurricane of creativity. It's making me feel more creative than ever. I'm writing poetry, songs, taking photographs, experimenting with fashion, everything."

Other things Evan Rachel Wood has learned from her relationship?

"How cruel people can be. I've seen [celebrity gossip] blogs where I've been called a slut, a whore, that say I should be condemned to death simply because I've fallen in love. Surely the fact that we are both prepared to go through all this proves just how important, and real, our love is, no? Everyone is so worried that I'm losing myself but really I'm finding myself. I've never been more comfortable in my own skin."

Amen to that. Whatever makes you happy, guys. No matter what, we know your love is 1,000 percent more real than that of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt.

Previously, Wood dated Billy Elliott actor Jamie Bell, whom she in 2005. She has a "J" tattooed in green on her left ankle. For the record, yes, Bell wore eyeliner when he dated her.

"He looked great in mascara," she says.

Like everyone else, Marilyn Manson has to go through that awkward first meeting with his girlfriend's folks.

Except that when you consider we're talking about Manson and Evan Rachel Wood, this rite of passage seems more, well, shocking.

Swine Flu Victim

The Hollywood Gossip believes these family talks must have been a much more amusing exchange than anything that happened in the film Meet the Parents.

The 38-year-old rocker, whose divorce from the sultry Dita Von Teese became final in May, is already deep into a very public relationship with Evan Rachel Wood.

The petite actress just happens to be 19.

In fact, the couple recently co-starred in an erotic video for Marilyn Manson's new song, "Heart-Shaped Glasses."

It's a little weird. But unlike Hayden Panettiere, she's legal. So back off, haters!

Marliyn Manson sat down with Rolling Stone recently to discuss his music, Evan Rachel Wood, and what their parents think about their relationship. Below are a few excerpts...

On Evan Rachel Wood's appearance in his, er, violent and sexually explicit music video for "Heart-Shaped Glasses" ...
"I had to have a drink with Evan's mother and father. The thing that needs to be established is that I might share my life with her, but that doesn't incriminate her in my behavior."

On the things their parents have in common:
"I found a strange, ironic similarity with what her father said to me, and what my dad said to Evan, which was, 'If you break his heart, I'll kill you,' or something along those lines."

How Evan Rachel Wood compares to other women he's been with:
"Evan was a real catalyst to help me realize that I wasn't delivering the message that I always stood for. And if you were to speak about her talent and personality, she's the most unique, stand-alone person who doesn't need a relationship with me to further her career. If anything, I could only take away from it."

THG NOTE: How does she stack up with Dita Von Teese nude? That's a question that will have to be answered another time. And sadly, not by us.

Regardless, it's nice that Wood is not a publicity-crazed, alcoholic train wreck such as Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan, the latter of whom Marilyn Manson saw naked at least once, but did not hook up with. Which sounds absurd, yet somehow makes perfect sense.

Just when we were beginning to think Marilyn Manson dating Evan Rachel Wood wasn't all that weird... okay, sorry, we were never thinking that for a second.

But envisioning them together is even creepier now, thanks to Evan Rachel Wood's apparent transformation... into Manson's sultry ex-wife, Dita Von Teese.

It appears as if Wood, 19, is trying awfully hard to meet Marilyn Manson's lofty expectations. Check out this comparison of the women of Manson: 

Oh yeah. If this keeps up, Wood (left) and Katie Holmes might have to get together and start a brainwashed babes of Hollywood support group. But at least she and Marilyn Manson (a.k.a. Brian Warner) seem happy together for now.

Which Manson better half do you prefer? Personally, we're a little biased, having gotten a glimpse of Dita Von Teese nude. Only Marilyn Manson truly has the background and experience to make an informed choice.

He dated Rose McGowan at one point, too. The guy's a player!

Marilyn Manson split with his wife, Dita Von Teese, late last year. Maybe you heard.

But don't worry, fans: the goth shock rocker has already found a new soul mate.

Swine Flu Victim

"I've found my double, my twin, my soul mate, with my new girlfriend, Evan Rachel Wood," the 38-year-old rocker tells France's Le Parisien newspaper.

"She's 19 and certainly that's very young," Manson added, "but that's not a problem for me. She likes the same things as me. She understands I like to get up when night falls and go to sleep at dawn."

In that case, we'd think Lindsay Lohan would be a better fit. But alas.

A solo Manson was in Paris for three days to promote his upcoming sixth album, Eat Me, Drink Me (gross).

He said depression and his ongoing divorce from Dita Von Teese inspired the project.

"Our relationship ended at Halloween," he tells the paper.

"I was completely destroyed psychologically. I'd rented a house and begun working on this disc, which sort of tells everything that happened to me during the past year."

Manson - whose real name Brian Warner â€" and Von Teese â€" a.k.a. Heather Sweet - wed in December 2005, and sources say that Manson's relationship with Wood was a factor in Von Teese's decision to file for divorce on December 29.

"I was married to someone who wanted me to change," Marilyn Manson says.

"Become more adult, more responsible. I began not to like myself, not like what I do. I lost my identity. Everything began collapsing around me. The record allowed me to put an end to that. Dita left at Christmas while I was recording."

According to his Web site, Manson first met Wood when he asked her to be in his upcoming horror film, Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll.

Manson, who used to see Dita Von Teese nude on a fairly regular basis, says the film, which he directed and which features Wood and British teen model Lily Cole sharing the role of Alice in Wonderland, will be out in October.

Von Teese, who cited "irreconcilable differences" in her filing, recently told People she and Manson "are not friends ... But we don't hate each other or anything."

That's nice. Maybe with the passing of time, they can be on even better terms, the way Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee are progressing in their relationship.

Romances involving Marilyn Manson have never been ordinary. Then again, nothing about Marilyn Manson could be deemed normal.

Remember then-girlfriend Rose McGowan's see-thru dress at the 1998 VMAs? And his goth wedding to Dita Von Teese at an Irish castle last year?

Swine Flu Victim

We don't, but a lot of people who actually follow Manson's career surely do. In any event, months before his marriage to Von Teese crumbled (she filed for divorce late last month), Manson's love life took a turn for the ... young.

It seems that the one-eyed "singer" has his eye fixed firmly on 20-year-old starlet Evan Rachel Wood, most famous for her roles in Thirteen and the TV series Once and Again.

Wood was clearly the center of his attention at a Beverly Hills house party on January 5, celebrating the musician's 38th birthday.

"They were like an old married couple," a source tells Us Weekly, which broke the story. "She was always right next to him and so attentive."

After opening gifts (which included a live scorpion), Manson led Wood and pals into a room to listen to songs from his next album. "Evan was really into it," says the source, "like she was possessed by his genius."

That speaks for itself, doesn't it?

A rep for Wood, however, maintains the couple, which met when Manson was considering casting the actress to star in his upcoming movie, Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll, are just pals.

"Their friendship grew out of Evan's admiration for Marilyn as an artist," says the representative.

THG NOTE: The term artist is certainly used loosely these days. Not unlike rocker, actress or even music producer (talking to you, J.R. Rotem).

To illustrate what a wonderful couple they make, here are some nice pictures of Manson and Wood. Aren't they just adorable? They're like Jessica Biel and Derek Jeter. Only not at all.

 

According to a Manson source, he was with the actress in L.A. as far back as September 28, which, not coincidentally, is Dita Von Tesse's birthday.

Von Teese issued the following statement: "Sadly, the reports of our marital difficulties are true. I ask for your consideration and understanding during this painful and private time."

Sorry, Dita, but we make our living at this stuff. There's no hiding from it now. All you can do is hope for some Paris Hilton pussy sightings to deflect our attention.
