Evan Rachel Wood is getting more specific in her sexual-abuse allegations against ex-fiance Marilyn Manson. In a new documentary, she says the singer “essentially raped” her during the filming of Manson’s 2007 “Heart-Shaped Glasses” music video.

“We had discussed a simulated sex scene, but once the cameras were rolling, he started penetrating me for real,” Wood says in part one of director Amy Berg’s “Phoenix Rising,” which premiered Sunday at the virtual Sundance Film Festival. “I had never agreed to that.”

The 34-year-old Wood, who has been acting since before she was 10, said she had never been on a set that unprofessional or chaotic in her life and didn’t feel safe. She said she didn’t know how to advocate for herself or how to say no because she had been “conditioned and trained to never talk back — to just soldier through.”

After filming the alleged sexual act, Wood said she felt “disgusting” and like she’d done something “shameful.” The crew was uncomfortable and didn’t know what to do, she said.

“I was coerced into a commercial sex act under false pretenses,” Wood said. “That’s when the first crime was committed against me and I was essentially raped on camera.”

Howard King, attorney for Marilyn Manson (real name Brian Warner), dismissed Wood’s allegations Monday afternoon in a statement to The Times.

“Of all the false claims that Evan Rachel Wood has made about Brian Warner, her imaginative retelling of the making of the ‘Heart-Shaped Glasses’ music video 15 years ago is the most brazen and easiest to disprove, because there were multiple witnesses,” he said. “Evan was not only fully coherent and engaged during the three-day shoot but also heavily involved in weeks of pre-production planning and days of post-production editing of the final cut.

“The simulated sex scene took several hours to shoot with multiple takes using different angles and several long breaks in between camera setups,” King continued. “Brian did not have sex with Evan on that set, and she knows that is the truth.”
