Evan Rachel Wood Defends Justin Bieber's "Reckless" Antics Because Of "Mean" People From Marilyn Manson Days!
Fame certainly has a dark side!
Reformed wild child Evan Rachel Wood knows a thing or two about surviving the INSANE attention and scrutiny that comes with celebrity.
We'll never forget just how high our eyebrows were raised when we found out the dainty actress coupled up with rocker Marilyn Manson, but Evan has insisted that such public shock also meant a ton of uber painful comments about her taste in men.
The Charlie Countryman star explained:
"People were pretty mean. At the time I hadn't yet been exposed to that kind of cruelty from strangers. If people were wondering why I was acting so-called crazy or like a teenager, it's because I was. People go through phases. People make mistakes. People go through life and don't get it right every time."
Teen rebellion and public "mistakes"??! That sounds familiar!
Notorious troublemaker Justin Bieber knows just a bit about growing up in the spotlight and Evan thinks we all need to forgive him for his prostitution scandals, hard partying ways, and general run-ins with the law.
The actress continued:
"I was never a Bieber or a [Miley] Cyrus, but I think the judgment was there, sure. I can't imagine what it's like to be him. When you're a teenager in an adult career, people expect you to be perfect and expect you to never make mistakes or to be a reckless teenager. And then when you are, they give you such a really hard time for it. You have to remind them that you're still a kid."
While we totez get what Evan is saying and we forgive JB just about every day, how many times can we let his turnt up ways slide…
…even if he is a bieby??!
Justin signed on to be a role model and we're all for forgiveness, but even we have our limits!
