Evan Rachel Wood

Evan Rachel Wood quotes: inside the mind of the actress.

“You don’t have to fit into a particular box. You fit into a box that you’re comfortable in, and you’ll attract people with like minds. It took me a while to figure this out, but there are many ideals. You have to figure out what’s best for you and that will radiate out of you. I think [it’s] a certain amount of letting go and being brave and not being afraid to make mistakes to get there.”

“There’s a path for everyone.”

“You can’t be afraid to make mistakes, you have to take risks. We all have those moments we look back on, but we’re not alone in that.”

“Usually the best things I’ve done have come from the biggest risks.”

“Someday sounds a lot like the thing people say when they actually mean never.”

“Now is the time that you have to be the one to walk through the fear and do it, and put yourself out there.”

“You’re always striving for a place of zen. Or a flow state, where you kind of transcend reality and you go to the other place. It’s when everything is in sync, and everyone is connecting with one another. Everything is going perfectly. You lose yourself. It’s this energy in the room when you know you’re nailing it and you know everyone else is feeling it too.”

“That which is real is irreplaceable.”

“People need to accept the fact that their leaders aren’t perfect. No one is.”

“I think like most women, I bought into a certain ideal of beauty that I didn’t quite fit into, and I tried to pretzel myself and alter myself to be what I was told is beautiful, and then I realized that you are in control of what you think is beautiful.”

“A bunch of little subtle changes that will make the day more special will amount to a big awesome day in your memory. I like little breadcrumbs along the way. Draw it out!”

“The biggest lessons I’ve learned in life have probably come from a bad situation, from an angry situation, even if I wasn’t the one who was angry.”

“Becoming a mom is the best thing I ever did with my life, but it’s not for everyone. It’s harder than you think and you are never ready, but it will open up your heart in ways you never thought possible.”

“Motherhood has changed me. It’s less about me. You become less self-obsessed and you let go of things. You forgive your parents for stuff, and you’re more at peace and you’re more motivated. You know you have to be an example for this child, so you have to be the best person. You can’t just say, ‘Do as I say, not as I do.’ He’s [her son, that is] the best thing to happen to me, for sure.”

“I would want my son to value himself as a person. To hold himself to a higher standard, and to not listen to all the stuff that’s shoved down men’s throats about what they’re supposed to do and how they’re not supposed to feel. I want him to know that he’s a person and he’s allowed to have emotions and be vulnerable. That doesn’t mean he’s not strong.”

“You always have that moment where you grow up and you’re like, ‘Oh, my God, I’m being exactly like my mother.’ I think that’s everyone’s greatest hope and worst fear.”

“It’s no joke when people say your heart keeps growing every day. The more your heart grows, the more open you get, the more understanding you have of people and emotions, and the deeper you are in tune with yourself.”

“You’ll drive yourself crazy because you’re never going to be the perfect anything.”

“I felt I had to grow up really quickly and in some ways didn’t really get a proper childhood but I think I made up for it later on in life.”

“I do know I’m always in Wonderland. And I’m definitely just as curious. I don’t mind being amongst the mad people, I enjoy it.”

“If I’m going to do anything extreme, I want it to have consequences.”

“Whenever I start freaking out and getting stressed, I have to remember that this is just the beginning.”

“I feel like I have held my own and said, ‘I am a force to be reckoned with.’ It’s about not being intimidated. I feel it makes me a stronger woman.”

“A script can just be a blueprint, and you’ve got to go in and build it and color it in and paint it.”

“I literally cried… because those roles like Dolores in Westworld are few and far between. What an amazing opportunity. It was an honor and a privilege to get to bring it to life.”

“I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t acting. I have taken time off to figure out if it’s what I really want to do, and it is. The only other job I’d want is to be a psychologist, as I spend most of my time analyzing people and emotions.”

“I feel sexy when I’m doing what I love—like when I’m singing or performing or something. That’s when I feel the most in control and in my element.”

“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.”

“I have my own demons, my own pain and darkness, but I choose to embrace them and look at them head-on and deal with them. Then it doesn’t hurt, and you learn from it.”

“I don’t wanna be in a story. All I want is to not look forward or back. I just wanna be in the moment I’m in.”

“Under all these lives I’ve lived something else has been growing. I’ve evolved into something new. And I have one last role to play. Myself.”

“I think people know by now that I’m going to do what I’m going to do and I’m going to be me.”

“I am trying to be a good person. I am trying to be myself, and if nobody likes me for me, that is their problem.”

“You don’t have to take yourself so seriously all the time.”

“Some people choose to see the ugliness in this world. The disarray. I choose to see the beauty. To believe there is an order to our days, a purpose.”

“My life is definitely going places I did not foresee. But I’m going with it. It doesn’t feel like a choice at this point. This is just what I need to do.”

“I’m doing my best. Doing my best. I’m very satisfied, very happy. Everything is an opportunity to learn and grow, and I think I’m just taking it all one day at a time.”
