Actress Evan Rachel Wood is adamant she has no regrets about her wildchild years, insisting she was "experiencing life" while she was still young.
The Wrestler star began dating rocker Marilyn Manson when she was just 19 and he was aged 38, and the relationship sparked speculation she would become another casualty of fame at an early age.
But Wood, who split from Manson last year (10), has defended her antics - which included joining the rocker on tour and simulating sex in one of his music videos - as a part of growing up.
She tells Britain's Stella magazine, "Everybody is entitled to be crazy in their twenties; I think I was making up for lost time. I was trying everything, touring with a rock band, trying different looks, exploring who I was sexually as a woman. I never wanted to look back and be like, 'Oh, man, I wish when I was young I had just hopped on that tour bus.'"
