Wood's Tips For Bono
EVAN RACHEL WOOD had harsh words for BONO and THE EDGE when she met them - she told the U2 stars to make their music less depressing.
The actress is set to take on the role of Mary Jane Watson in the new musical SpiderMan: Turn Off the Dark on Broadway, which will debut in February (10).
U2 frontman Bono and guitarist The Edge are writing new music for the musical - and Wood found herself giving them tips at a recent meet-up.
She tells Britain's The Times, “I was like, ‘Bono, I know you want to save the world and everything, but in this song you’re talking about poverty and world hunger and it’s Broadway. Can we lighten this up a bit, can I just not sing this?’
"He was like, ‘You’re right, I know, we have to try, we have to try’.”
