Evan Rachel Wood is an equal-opportunity romantic.

The actress, 24, revealed that she was bisexual earlier this year, and shares a bit more on the subject in the October issue of Marie Claire.

 "That's a big part of who I am, and it always has been for as long as I can remember," says Wood, who happens to play lesbian vampire queen Sophie-Anne Leclerq on True Blood.

Wood, who next costars in the George Clooney film Ides of March, explains why she couldn't identify as strictly straight or gay. "I can't say I'm one way or the other, because I've honestly fallen in love with a man and I've honestly fallen in love with a woman," says Wood, who broke off her engagement to rocker Marilyn Manson last year.

"I don't know how you label that, it's just how it is."

One guy she can't get enough of? Justin Bieber! After catching the 17-year-old phenom's documentary Never Say Never, she became a Belieber for life.

"I ended up seeing it three times — in the theaters," Wood admits. "One of those times was the director's cut, I'm not even kidding. I got obsessed with the kid."

Once a child star herself, Wood hasn't yet been introduced to her teen idol. "It's going to be weird if I ever meet him. He's brought so much joy to my life."
