Q & A: Evan Rachel Wood

Wood will be in four movies at this week's Toronto Film Festival. But her favorite is Julie Taymor's "Across the Universe," in which she (and the cast) sing dozens of Beatles songs. Wood spoke to Ramin Setoodeh.

Yeah. I have no problem telling people that it's the greatest movie ever made.

I'm going to cover it up for something better.

It's a strawberry with the leaves in the shape of a bird. But when people look at it, they say, "Is that a ferret sticking out of an apple?"

I'm an alien. I'm young Uma Thurman. And I'm a young brunette working at McDonald's.

I have to keep it blond for roles, so I could go either way. But now I can't dye my hair black, because that would mean I'm a zombie.

People need to grow up about that.

I think people really get off on seeing someone fail. No one is waiting for me to say something smart. An actress is stupid—that's the best news. It's on CNN. People tell me I'm immature, and Britney's crotch is on CNN. Who the hell is immature?
