Evan Rachel Wood has sympathy for guys who try to chat her up.

The 'Ides of March' actress - who is believed to be dating British actor Jamie Bell - feels for men because they are under "so much pressure" when they speak to her which can result in them "easily turning into a creep".

Bisexual Wood - who was engaged to heavy metal star Marilyn Manson before they split in 2010 - said: "[They] always seem too eager. I feel for guys. I'm telling you. It's so much pressure. So easily you can turn into a creep.

"But, I totally get it, because I got to a place where I had to start picking up women, and I had to be the guy. And I feel awful for any guy that's ever trying to pick me up-it's super hard.

"Women are very complicated. I love women - I am one, I adore them - but we're all nuts. We're all crazy! But, I think it comes from love. It comes from a place of caring too much and doing too much, and it will drive you nuts. Guys and girls are equally nuts - it's just two different kinds of crazy."

But men might be deterred from trying to talk the 24-year-old actress into bed when they find out she is a "crazy sleeper" who is violent when she slumbers.

She added to Flaunt magazine: "I'm a crazy sleeper. If you ever slept at home with me, you know you're in for an adventure. I talk, I scream - I freak people out sometimes because I literally scream things. I am violent in my sleep, which I always find really interesting."
