London: Actress Evan Rachel Wood says she is glad to have called off her engagement with rocker Marilyn Manson, because both of them needed to grow up.
"I am glad - for both of us. We both have a lot more growing to do. I don`t think it would`ve been right, but I am glad that we were engaged. I think we needed to make a statement to each other that it was legit. So that was good," Wood told Marie Claire magazine.
The "Wrestler" star starting dating Manson in 2006 following his divorce from burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese. They split in 2008, but reconciled a year later before secretly becoming engaged in January last year. However, they again parted ways in August in the same year. Wood has since been linked to ex-boyfriend Jamie Bell, reports express.co.uk.
