HBO’s True Blood and Mildred Pierce Star Evan Rachel Wood Comes Out: "I’m Bisexual"

First it was Anna Paquin and now another “True Blood” cast member, Evan Rachel Wood has now declared her Bisexuality to the world in the April 26th issue of Esquire magazine.

“This is the third such hint in the conversation, after that androgyny comment and saying she’d “marry” her Mildred Pierce costar Kate Winslet if she could.

You date women?

“Yes,” she says proudly, as if she was waiting to be asked.

Do you look for different things in men than in women?

I’m more kind of like the guy when it comes to [dating] girls,” Wood says. “I’m the dominant one…I’m opening the doors, I’m buying dinner. Yeah, I’m romantic. “I’m constantly changing, I’m constantly growing. I think I’m a little controversial…I just try and keep some mystery, so hopefully people can’t really put their finger on it

Totally not surprising, especially after dating Marilyn Manson.  But I think she likes to go for the shock factor as well especially after the dull as dishwater HBO Mini-Snooze Mildred Pierce remake.

NOW, if only the men of True Blood would be so open and honest. 

Sam?, Jason?, Eric?, Hoyt?….Bueller?…anybody?

WATCH and COMPARE Todd Hayne’s "Mildred Pierce" Remake Trailer To The Original Starring Joan Crawford

Watch the new trailer for HBO’s upcoming miniseries remake of the 1945 gay cult movie Mildred Pierce, which starred Joan Crawford as Mildred Pierce, Ann Blythe as bitchy daughter Veda, and Eve Arden as wise cracking friend and Mildred’s partner Ida Corwyn.

This time around Kate Winslet takes on the role of the long suffering Mildred, Evan Rachel Wood (who has SUCKED  in True Blood this season) as Veda the BITCH and Mare Winningham taking over the Eve Arden role?

Directed by Todd Haynes the HBO version will run as a mini-series with 5 episodes. 

Where I love Todd Hanyes work and I am sure It will be a very pretty and a nicely shot mini-series but to me this is l gay sacrilege!

Could Evan Rachel Wood ever pull off:  “With this money I can get away from you. From you and your chickens and your pies and your kitchens and everything that smells of grease. I can get away from this shack with its cheap furniture. And this town and its dollar days, and its women that wear uniforms and its men that wear overalls.”  I don’t think so.

**You can watch BOTH the original 1945 Trailer and the HBO Miniseries Trailer after the jump.  (Please feel free to leave comments.  I would LOVE to hear what has to be said about this!)
