Evan Rachel Wood Breaks Down "Gaslighting" and How It Took Time to Realize She Was a Victim

Entertainment & Celebs

"It's the lobster slowly boiling in the pot."

Evan Rachel Wood talks to Drew about "gaslighting," and how difficult it is to realize you're a victim of it while it's happening.


Evan Rachel Wood’s new documentary Phoenix Rising on HBO Max captures how she transformed her trauma into state law. Evan helped co-write the bill The Phoenix Act, which extends the statute of limitations for domestic violence in California. It was unanimously passed and signed into law in January 2020.

Brian Warner (aka Marilyn Manson) has denied ever abusing Wood and says their relationship was consensual. He recently filed a lawsuit against her alleging, among other things, conspiracy, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
