OnlyOnAOL: Evan Rachel Wood has a very surprising tattoo
By: Donna Freydkin
Life is perfectly harmonious for Evan Rachel Wood these days.
She plays a robot on the hit HBO series "Westworld," portraying Dolores, who pretends to be a real human. And in her spare time, the actress and mom is one-half of the band Rebel and a Basketcase, along with Zach Villa.
"I like to say it's Siouxsie Sioux mixed with Watts from 'Some Kind of Wonderful,'" says Wood. "We're '80s geeks. We wanted to keep that dream alive."
Her ultimate '80s fashion must-have is something even Karl Lagerfeld wears, but for Wood, it's an homage to the unfailingly loyal friend played by Mary Stuart Masterson in the 1987 film. "The fingerless gloves. They're a staple for us. I haven't done a show without them yet. I have Watts tattooed on (my body) to commemorate her. She was my favorite," says Wood.
Between raising her son and starring on a show, Wood is busy. But she finds time for her music.
"Whenever we have a moment," says Wood. "Luckily 'Westworld' isn't shooting now. I just don't stop. It's hard for me to go to sleep and not work. It's a labor of love and it's fulfilling. I do mainly dramatic roles so the band is uplifting and empowering. It's a nice balance. I need them both."
Her musical guilty pleasure isn't all that guilty. "I just saw Hanson perform after 20 years and they're crushing it. I love Hanson," says Wood.
