She experimented with bisexual behavior in the 2003 indie film, “Thirteen,” but Evan Rachel Wood also hooks up with girls off-screen, according to an Esquire piece published Sunday.

The “Mildred Pierce” actress, who ended her engagement with rocker Marilyn Manson last year, implied she swings both ways when she told the magazine, “I’m up for anything. Meet a nice guy, meet a nice girl…” and “So I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls … I’m into androgyny in general.”

The 23-year-old North Carolina native confirmed that she dates women and men and wears the pants in her female romantic relationships.

“Yeah, I’m more kind of like the guy when it comes to girls. I’m the dominant one,” Wood said. “I’m opening the doors, I’m buying dinner. Yeah, I’m romantic.”

Wood addressed the fact that critics thought she and Manson, who is 18 years her senior, were an odd match.

“I think one of the things that freaked people out so much is that we looked so different,” Wood said, adding that she had a tattoo behind her right ear of the number “15,” a significant marking for her and her former flame.
