One Thing Evan Rachel Wood Hates
Evan Rachel Wood is being sued for over $30 million by the producers of the independent comedy “10 Things I Hate About Life” according to Variety. They allege that Wood refused to continue working on the film, which caused them financial damages. The actress’s representatives retaliated and said in a statement, “The production shut down in February 2013 when the producers ran out of money.” Even after that, they said Evan agreed to resume production when things came together and paid her what she was owed.
