The film details her on-again, off-again relationship with the rocker, who Wood claimed “horrifically abused” her for years from 2006 to 2011.
“Heart-Shaped Glasses” off Manson’s sixth album Eat Me, Drink Me, Manson dressed Wood in a pair of heart-shaped shades identical to the poster from Lolita, Stanley Kubrick’s 1962.
The video features Wood groping her genital area and having sex with Manson (whose real name is Brian Warner) while fake blood rains down on the duo.
It’s nothing like I thought it was going to be,” Wood says in the Amy Berg-directed film. “We’re doing things that were not what was pitched to me.
We had discussed a simulated scene, but once the cameras were rolling, he started penetrating me for real.
I had never agreed to that. It was complete chaos. I did not feel safe. No one was looking after me.
It was a really traumatizing experience filming the video. I felt disgusting and that I had done something shameful and I could tell that the crew was uncomfortable and nobody knew what to do.
I was coerced into a commercial act under false pretenses,” Wood adds in the doc. “That’s when the first crime was committed against me. I was essentially raped on-camera.”
The film charts the creation of the Phoenix Act, a bill that extends the statute of limitations for domestic-violence survivors to pursue charges against their abusers.
The absence of Federico Chiesa, though, is more significant.
