Evan Rachel Wood Speaks Up About Manson Break Up

I feel bad that the relationship didn’t work out (or as she calls it – just "a break")… but I am DYING to see how quickly Evan Rachel Wood changes her style and moves away from the goth girlfriend look she’s been running for so long. That just wasn’t who she was prior to meeting MM.

Evan and Marilyn Manson have officially called it quits and the actress spoke exclusively with People Magazine about why she decided to leave but promises the relationship was always a healthy one. She thanked Marilyn for his support through some of her most trying times and will always be thankful for knowing him.

"Manson and I both decided to take some time apart so we could concentrate on work. Someone used that opportunity to kick us while we were down and sell a completely false story.

Manson owns the house he lives in. My brother has never stayed there and the person that said such horrible things about Manson being ‘controlling’ and ‘emotionally abusive’ is certainly no source ‘close’ to me.

Manson has been by my side and taken care of me through the best and worst times. I love him as a person and as an artist. I will always be proud to have been a part of that.

"If any more attacks are made on us, it is the act of a desperate, selfish person, who is angry to no longer be a part of my life. No further comment will be made and we request our privacy at this time."

Jaime Pressly and fiance, DJ Eric Cubiche, have reportedly split. The couple were friends for 9 years and dated for a year and a half before getting engaged in October 2006. They also have a 18 month-old son together. Jaime told Access Hollywood,

"We are taking a break from our relationship but we are together every day with Dezi and still love each other very much…[we] remain close friends as we both adore our son and want to make sure he knows we both love him more than life"

I hope they are able to work it out, especially since they had a son together not so long ago. Your thoughts?

Joaquin Phoenix Officially Quits Acting

I’m sorry — what? While doing an interview with Extra TV, Joaquin Phoenix gave his official resignation. While attending a fundraiser for late actor Paul Newman’s children’s charity, Joaquin said that he just wants to concentrate on music.

"I want to take this opportunity… also to give you the exclusive and just talk a little bit about the fact that this will be my last performance as an actor… I’m not doing films anymore.

"I’m working on my music. I’m done. I’ve been through that."

And the news has been confirmed by his representative, who says,

"That is what he told me."

Phoenix’s brother-in-law Casey Affleck, who is married to Summer Phoenix, insists the star is for real:

"I don’t think he’s kidding. He’s got music and stuff."

The movie Joaquin was talking about is a romantic drama Two Lovers in which he starred alongside Gwyneth Paltrow.
