Evan Rachel Wood is probably better known for her turbulent three year relationship with shock rocker Marilyn Manson than her acting, but being in the public eye for whatever reason means the 24-year-old still has to keep her smile in tip-top condition. Six months on from losing her tooth after taking an elbow to the face in a Paris nightclub, Evan has been back to the dentist to get the damage fixed.
‘It was just past midnight and I was dancing with my friends in Paris,’ The actress told People magazine shortly after the incident, ‘and just boom, I caught an elbow right in the left side of my face. I knew right away when I closed my mouth that something was really wrong.’ She joked that she looked like a character from The Hangover, and tried to laugh it off ‘but the person that did it was crying because they felt so bad.’ She later added that the night was a memorable one, saying ‘I’ll never forget my 24th birthday when my tooth got punched out.’
After having the tooth replaced temporarily, Evan has undergone more invasive treatment to deal with the problem long-term. The True Blood star tweeted her followers online to let them know about the upcoming surgery and to ask for their support; ‘Getting ready for some serious dental surgery.’ she posted, ‘Finishing the work on my teeth once and for all. Send good vibes everyone!’
