Correction! That is not Evan Rachel Wood in American Horror Story. I am an idiot. But at least I can admit my own idiocy. And I’ll leave the post here so you can all see me for the sad, sorry, flawed individual that I am. Happy Tuesday! xo

There was a period, right after I saw Thirteen and before young Evan Rachel Wood started going out with the artist currently known as Marilyn Manson, where I decided I had no big love for the diminutive actress. She was pretentious; she was untalented; she was, in short, difficult to stomach. In hindsight, it may have been because she kind of intimidated me; she had that peculiar brand of grown-up maturity and eloquence that young people just shouldn’t have.

But in the past couple of months, Wood has really impressed me – from her amazing turn as the vampire queen in True Blood to almost – but not quite – stealing the show from Ryan Gosling in The Ides of March (above) and then, the piece de resistance, as the nanny who’ll do anything to keep her job in the thrilling, compelling, amazing American Horror Story (below). I LOVE it.

Do you have any actresses you loved to hate and now just love?
