News: The Wrestler Made Wood Address Estrangement Issues With Her Real Dad

I think its nice to see that a role in a movie can help an actor in their personal life sort things out. Especially after her role in “The Wrestler”.

Evan Rachel Wood has credited her portrayal as Mickey Rourke’s daughter in The Wrestler with helping to resolve estrangement issues with her own dad.

The actress admits the role made her face her own family problems and now she and her father have never been closer – in fact they’re planning to star opposite one another in a family production of Romeo & Juliet in North Carolina.

Wood insists such a project would never have been possible before she played Rourke’s estranged daughter in The Wrestler.

She tells i-d magazine, “All these issues came up that I didn’t know I still had until I was forced to go there and it totally reconnected me with him (father).

“Everything that’s been pent-up over the years suddenly comes out, then you don’t talk for a while, and then you slowly reconcile.

“There wasn’t any closeness. We had to get to know each other again. Getting to know him now, it’s like, ‘Oh my God, you are so cool.'”

Love. Pain. Glory.

Every now and then a film will come along that I really take to heart and instantly becomes a favorite after the first viewing, and yes “The Wrestler” is one of them. Ironically the last film that done that to me was another sport based film “Million Dollar Baby”. I have a soft spot for sport films, and often taken aback by them, I guess I feel I can relate to them in some ways of wanting to compete at your sport no matter what obstacles are placed in your way.
