April 20, 2011 — -- For Evan Rachel Wood, gender isn't an issue.

"I'm up for anything. Meet a nice guy, meet a nice girl," the "True Blood" actress said in an interview in the latest issue of Esquire magazine. It's the first time Wood, 23, talked publicly about being bisexual.

Wood said that she's "kind of like the guy when it comes to girls."

"I'm the dominant one," she said. "I'm opening the doors, I'm buying dinner. Yeah, I'm romantic."

Wood famously dated rocker Marilyn Manson for three years before splitting in 2010. His oddities attracted her, and she told Esquire, "'I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls ... I'm into androgyny in general."

But Wood is also attracted to traditionally feminine features. She co-starred with Kate Winslet in the HBO miniseries "Mildred Pierce" and said she would "marry" Winslet if she could.

Wood is the latest star to open up about her sexuality. Below, check out other celebrities who have recently revealed they're not heterosexual:

Amber Heard

In December, "Pineapple Express" actress Amber Heard walked the red carpet of GLAAD's 25th anniversary celebration with her girlfriend of two years, artist and photographer Tasya van Ree.

Afterward, speaking to the gay-focused entertainment site AfterEllen.com, Heard, 24, said she felt a responsibility to publicly discuss her sexuality.

"I think when I became aware of my role in the media, I had to ask myself an important question, 'Am I part of the problem?'" she said. "I think that the injustice of people staying in the closet is more than I can bear with a clear conscience, and I couldn't sleep at night if I was a part of that problem, if I was part of the lies."

Asked about van Ree, Heard said, "She's so beautiful. I mean, you'd have to be crazy not to want to go out with her!"

Anna Paquin

Last April, Wood's "True Blood" co-star, Anna Paquin, also revealed that she's bisexual. Paquin did so through a PSA for the "Give a Damn" campaign, which features stars speaking out for equality.
