Marilyn Manson fantasizes about smashing ex-girlfriend Wood’s skull

By Alexandra Heilbron on June 26, 2009 | 44 Comments

Marilyn Manson, 40, told Spin magazine that he fantasizes about killing his ex-girlfriend, 21-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood. He said the songs ‘Into The Fire’ and ‘I Want To Kill You Like They Do In The Movies’ were inspired by their breakup last November. He said: “My lowest point was Christmas Day 2008 because I didn’t speak to my family. My walls were covered in scrawlings of the lyrics and cocaine bags nailed to the wall. I was struggling to deal with being alone and being forsaken and being betrayed by putting your trust in one person, and making the mistake of that being the wrong person.” He added: “I made the mistake of trying to, desperately, grasp on and save that and own it. And every time I called her that day — I called 158 times — I took a razorblade and I cut myself on my face or on my hands. I have fantasies every day about smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer.” The two began dating when Wood was 19 — Manson was married at the time, but dumped his wife for her. Wood is currently starring on the big screen in Whatever Works.

    agree Will…this is really disturbing but I’m willing to bet that is exactly why this freak announced this, all for shock value….

  3. STEVE-O • June 26, 2009 @ 10:24 AM

    Well…what else would you dream about when you have been dumped? Just kidding. 40 year old D-Bag is all this guy is.

  4. theguy • June 26, 2009 @ 12:07 PM

    I some way you feel for the guy cause you actually see a glimpse of emotional feelings of love. All this guy wants is to be loved.

    But on the other hand, the guy also need alot of medical, psychological, and law enforcement attention. He should go to jail for death threats. And should seek therapy for the razor blades and cocaine. And his lowest point was not speaking to his family.

  5. Ash • June 26, 2009 @ 12:51 PM

    Honestly I dont blame him. All the shit he’s been through, he actually found love in someone, he gave up a lot for this stupid brawd, even his marriage. She tore out his heart and left him hurting. Who wouldn’t have deathly thoughts about someone after their heart has been ripped out of their body? Doesn’t mean he’s GOING to do it.

  6. demigod • June 26, 2009 @ 1:43 PM

    I think he loved her too much lol. She must feel very flattered, not to mention horrified at the same time. 🙂

  7. demigod • June 26, 2009 @ 1:52 PM

    Btw, that pic has always killed me 🙂 Talk about beauty and the beast.

    “Weirdo!!!!!!!!!!!Big weirdo!!!!!!!!!who actually cares about this guy anymore.his music sucks and hes one ugly son of a b?&%just plain weird this guys even a celebrity.”

    The same can be said about Michael Jackson, but the people who were cursing him two years ago are praising him now that he’s dead.

  9. Deadpool5 • June 26, 2009 @ 2:12 PM

    This is old news – I’m a longtime Marilyn Manson fan, but what did he expect when he cheated on his wife over a girl half his age? It wasn’t meant to last. At least this midlife crisis motivated him to write THE HIGH END OF LOW, one of his better albums since 2000’s HOLY WOOD.

  10. lily • June 26, 2009 @ 4:19 PM

    steven 2:01 So very, very true.

  11. Nikki • June 26, 2009 @ 4:29 PM

    Can we say drama queen? We’ve all been dumped, had our hearts broken, but you can wallow in self pity without turning to violence. Her life is only just beginning at that age so for him to even consider she would be a permanent fixture in his life was rather foolish. Sure he’s had his problems, we all have, but he’s brought a lot of them on himself and his actions as a 40 year old man disgust me. It would be nice if he would stop blaming those around him and take responsibility for his own actions.

  12. Monique • June 26, 2009 @ 4:49 PM

    All I can say is that it’s really stupid to put that you want to murder someone down in writing….what is he thinking (or not thinking??)

  13. Nancy • June 26, 2009 @ 4:51 PM

    I’d sure like to know which one is considered beauty and which one is the beast? They both look pretty beastly to me in this photo, LOL. If these are his real thought, then he truly needs help and he should get right on that before he snaps and does something stupid such as carry out any of these thoughts. What does he need a woman for anyways? I thought he got his own breast implants! 😀

  14. Carol • June 26, 2009 @ 5:35 PM

    I think he is creepy, saw him years ago and he said he likes to go into motel rooms of other people and pee on their toilet seats. How he got in, he didn’t say. Not sure if it is true or for shock value, but he grosses me out. His music is beyond terible, not into the whole demon music thing.

  15. tributegirl • June 26, 2009 @ 5:55 PM

    Oh dear, what a shame, he feels betrayed and forsaken, and put his trust into one person? Like his wife did?
    A 40 year old man dreaming of murdering a 21 year old woman. Sick.

  16. quinn • June 26, 2009 @ 9:48 PM

    She better watch her back. And if she gets involved with a new guy that might set him off. That is sick and creepy.

    What was she doing with him anyway. No matter how you look at him he is still cringe worthy.He is not the dapper older man my mom told me about.

  17. Jo-Anne • June 27, 2009 @ 2:58 PM

    definitely qualifies as one of the more “cringe worthy” quinn, true…

  18. Nancy • June 27, 2009 @ 3:02 PM

    Jo-Anne: Funny… you “judge” this guy (“in your own courtroom”) on his looks but yet agree with all the defenders of a child molester. 😉

  19. Jo-Anne • June 27, 2009 @ 3:24 PM

    wrong yet again….Nance….man, this is getting tiring…just for once surprise me and get what I say right…instead of twisting it to your version, then furiously rushing to every single post I remark on and posting same lying theme…

    Agree on MJ’s musical genius status, and bad taste remarks on that storyline, never ever commented on anything there re child molestation or even offered an opinion on allegations against MJ for same.

    The fact you have to attempt to link my name with approval of this heinous crime not only further confirms your contemptible personality but also confirms the gutter crawl you slither across when faced with little to fight back with….

  20. Jo-Anne • June 27, 2009 @ 6:52 PM

    there you go again…concluding it’s all and ONLY about you, Nance…my comment re what I felt were bad taste remarks never mentioned your name, there were countless others who posted on that site besides you…

    your inferences are not lost on me, Nance, playing an innocent is about as believable as you rivalling June Cleaver…

    no one said you supported a child molester… all we can say definitively at this point is that you support punching others in the face…

  21. Angelina • June 27, 2009 @ 7:43 PM

    Nancy… I defended you once on Easter against Jo-Anne (can’t remember what the issue was about) and totally forgot the two of you existed till I read your little arguement just now. I think it had something to do with Lindsay Lohan. Meh..

    I’m offended that you would call Michael Jackson a child molester for the following reasons:

    1) He was found ‘not guilty’ by the Justice System.
    2) He’s dead. This is usually the period where people hold back character-annihilating comments.
    3) How do you know he was a child molester? Was he caught on tape? Did he admit?
    4) My Dad doesn’t even like MJ’s music, but was very depressed the day MJ died because of the way people like you treated him during his last years.
    5) You’re annoying. Stop picking fights with people when there are genocides and famines happening all across our planet.

  22. lily • June 27, 2009 @ 9:42 PM

    OJ was found “not guilty” too, Angelina…

    Want to wait till he dies to sing his praises too?

  23. moondog • June 28, 2009 @ 7:17 AM

    4 shur thats wat theyll all b doing.idiots.

  24. Jo-Anne • June 28, 2009 @ 8:31 AM

    OJ/MJ – lily, 2 completely different scenarios to draw any remote links between…

  25. lily • June 28, 2009 @ 9:35 AM

    I beg to differ, JoAnne. Angelina said “he (MJ) was found not guilty by the justice system” and that is EXACTLY the same case with OJ. Yes the cases leading up to the verdict were entirely different. I never said otherwise. But you can’t quote a court verdict as the be all and end all and then say some verdicts that cleared the accused are more trustworthy than others…

  26. Jo-Anne • June 28, 2009 @ 10:12 AM

    actually some verdicts are definitely more trustworthy, dependant on type of evidence…

  27. Jo-Anne • June 28, 2009 @ 10:24 AM

    actually, your “arguments” typically prove squat…

  28. Jo-Anne • June 28, 2009 @ 11:58 AM

    to address your question of me, lily, I’ll go with option two, the cheap shot contest…but for the sake of fairness can I request that you aim for solo cheap shots and ask Nancy to climb down off your back?

  29. lily • June 28, 2009 @ 12:30 PM

    Interesting and really, really sad to watch his kid’s lives unfold…I agree Minerva, with that comment and the rest of your post.

    JoAnne, the cheap shot option was meant as a joke. Not a funny one either.

  30. Nancy • June 28, 2009 @ 12:45 PM


  31. Jo-Anne • June 28, 2009 @ 12:47 PM

    well, why do you even make a joke if you’re trying to NOT be funny???

    I just took your “joke” and ran with it…

    you’re all over the map, lily, find a continent and land…

  32. tributegirl • June 28, 2009 @ 2:59 PM

    Pot and kettle, pot and kettle….

    Anyway, I wonder, now that he’s gone, will the truth come out? I keep thinking about Joan Crawford, I believe the truth came out after she passed, didn’t it?

  33. Jo-Anne • June 28, 2009 @ 3:05 PM

    last time I checked t.g. my kettle was silver…but I’m betting yours is jet black…

  34. tributegirl • June 28, 2009 @ 3:31 PM

    Do you ever have anything to say that isn’t a smart-ass comment to someone?

  35. tributegirl • June 28, 2009 @ 3:34 PM

    By the way, my kettle is white.

  36. Jo-Anne • June 28, 2009 @ 3:37 PM

    I guess I overlooked the following very serious comment of yours to be…perhaps…smart-assed?

    “Pot and kettle, pot and kettle.”

  37. lily • June 28, 2009 @ 5:28 PM

    Your comment about Joan Crawford reminded me of Bing Crosby, another Hollywood icon whose child (or children,I don’t recall) waited till after he was gone to share sad, horrible stories of what life was like in their homes. Your right, tg: there is no way to settle this argument at all except to wait and see.

  38. tributegirl • June 28, 2009 @ 9:45 PM

    Also Dr Suess, lily, apparently he was a terrible father.

  39. lily • June 29, 2009 @ 8:06 AM

    Not Dr. Seuss!! Say it ain’t so!!!

  40. tributegirl • June 29, 2009 @ 8:17 AM

    Hate to say it, but, it’s true. Apparently he was awesome with other people’s kids, but was really sh*tty with his own.

  41. moondog • June 29, 2009 @ 8:11 PM

    then he sux 2

  42. moondog • June 29, 2009 @ 8:11 PM

    but his books r genius

  43. doouche • June 30, 2009 @ 1:02 AM

    I just … yeah, someone raised a good point when they said “to put all your trust in one person, like his wife did?” I mean, wow, what a narcissistic dork. But then again, I swear he’s partially doing this for shock value. Or at least I want to think that. Anyone who admits to calling someone 158 times and cutting themselves each time she didn’t answer has either got to be joking or certifiably a loser (no, not insane, because that’s what he wants us to think).

    I dunno, man. I … believe in inter-generational love, it can happen, but on the other hand the person I was at 19 is so wildly different than the person I was at 23. The person I was at 23 is very similar to the person I am now, at 25, but even so, I still continue to change and grow and mature. I just can’t imagine actually dating a 19-year-old, even at my age now, just because they’re so often in such a different headspace. And it just seems blindingly ignorant for him to assume she’d want to just be with him for the rest of his life, which is probably 40 years tops, when she has at least another 60 to go, and 20 or so more youthful ones where she can date anyone she pleases …
