Young Hollywood: Evan Rachel Wood on the benefits of Twitter
On Twitter, plenty of celebrities are bombarded with hateful messages about their films or wardrobe choices. But Evan Rachel Wood has had a different experience on the social networking site: She's been sent an overwhelming number of adoring messages from fans.
"I can be really critical, and you hear the bad stuff more than the good and then all of a sudden, there's all of these people every day who are like, 'I love you, and you're so inspirational,'" the 24-year-old said at the Los Angeles Times' Young Hollywood round table earlier this month, where she sat alongside Anton Yelchin, Armie Hammer and Kirsten Dunst. "It's nice to actually hear some of the good things sometimes."
None of the other young stars at the event has a Twitter account, although Hammer admitted he once attempted to send out a message on his wife's feed.
"In the middle of writing this thing, the letters on the keyboard just stopped working," he explained. "I was like, 'Why is this not typing anymore? 140 characters? That's it? Are you joking me?' It's hard to get a good joke out in 140 characters."
