Entertainment & Celebs

"By healing others, you also heal yourself."

Evan Rachel Wood explains to Drew why she wants the statute of limitations for domestic violence extended for the rest of the country, not just in California. She also talks about her experience as a spokesperson for sexual abuse survivors.

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.
