But, Evan Rachel Wood argues that the female sex is only part of the equation. According to the actress, educating men is also an important part of empowering women.

As the face of Gucci Guilty fragrance, the actress has become an adamant supporter of the brand's Chime for Change campaign, which promotes education, health, and justice initiatives for women worldwide. We sat down with Wood at the campaign's KidSave Weekend Miracles Camp in Malibu, where she discussed how she believes that teaching her son to value himself is an important step in teaching him how to respect women. In addition to the topic of feminism, we chatted with Wood about working with Shia LaBeouf, becoming close pals with Ellen Page, and her intense next movie, Into the Forest.


Tell us about your upcoming movie, Into the Forest?
"I’m so excited. It’s a really intense film — I feel like I’ve never seen a movie like this. It’s starring two young women. We’re the heroes of the film. We’re taking care of ourselves, and we’re warriors in it. So, I think it’s really refreshing to see a film with two very strong leading ladies taking care of themselves. It takes place in the not-so-distant future. Everything is ending — there’s no water, there’s no gas or electricity. Life as you know it just ceases to be."

What’s Ellen Page like to work with?
"She’s absolutely wonderful. I loved every minute of filming. As intense as the movie is, we actually laughed a lot and had a really good time. She’s one of those people that can turn it on and off. It’s kind of scary how quickly she can do it — she’s literally laughing one second, and then the next she’s in character. Her whole face changes. She morphs into what she’s doing, and it’s really fun to watch.

"But, we really took care of each other. We had to go to deep, vulnerable places in the film, and we were always there holding and hugging each other — like real sisters helping each other through the whole process. We got really close. We knew we were going to do the film a year before it was made, so we spent as much time as possible together so we could really bond and so the relationship was believable. She’s one of my closest friends now."
