New Film “The Ides of March”:

Queen Sophie Anne (Evan Rachel Wood)Evan Rachel Wood, True Blood‘s Queen Sophie Anne, is appearing in The Ides of March. This political thriller stars George Clooney, Ryan Gosling and many others. The film deals with many issues, including sex scandals, and according to Wood that’s fine. In a recent interview the actress quotes one of the most poignant lines from the movie: “You can start a war, you can bankrupt a country but you can’t sit with the interns.”

Wood does not consider sitting with the interns that scandalous:

“We make such a big deal about these sex scandals, which are actually the most natural things in the world and everyone has skeletons in their closet and it actually shouldn’t matter at all. I don’t want to know. People can do whatever they want with themselves and that’s fine. It has nothing to do with the way you conduct yourself at your job.”

The True Blood actress enjoyed working with director George Clooney “…I really like working with directors who are actors because you speak the same language.” Wood didn’t go method on this project; she relied on documentaries and information given by director George Clooney. Even though the film is serious, the making of it was very enjoyable. Wood describes the fun atmosphere Clooney created on set:

“And he made sure everyone was having a great time. I think he knows that if your cast and crew are happy then you’re going to get good work. That’s actually really rare. But that’s why I loved working with him.”
