Justin Bieber has a fan in actress Evan Rachel Wood

08/22/2011 by Olivia Allin

Evan Rachel Wood has openly admitted to having a case of Bieber fever.

Last month, the actress released a video of herself covering Justin Bieber's "U Smile" at a karaoke bar in China and Wood also revealed her fandom to "The Ides of March" director George Clooney on the film's set.

"[Clooney] was around for when I first saw Never Say Never and I got super into it," Wood told New York Magazine. "I was a changed person. And I was dancing and singing, and then I noticed that the set was really quiet, and then I looked, and the camera was rolling and George is standing there. And he just said, 'Enjoy the DVD!' and he walked away. So that was terrifying."

Wood will appear opposite Clooney and Ryan Gosling in the political thriller, "The Ides of March," which is slated for release on October 7, 2011.

"I'm a big karaoke fan and I also love Justin Bieber unashamedly," the 23-year-old actress said. "That is a fact - everyone knows it. So, the whole catalogue was basically in the karaoke machine, so I started singing 'U Smile' and my friend started filming it. We didn't really have a plan to put it online - it just kind of happened."

The actress showed off her singing chops, performing Beatles hits in the 2007 movie, "Across the Universe." She also contributed to the soundtrack of "Mysterious Skin," performing "Silent Night.

"I've sung my whole life. But it's been the main thing that I did just for me, that I didn't share with anybody," Wood continued. "But more and more, I think I'm just open to it now. I've made my own music, and the way I've always described it is Peggy Lee with an electric guitar, or Billie Holiday with some PJ Harvey in there."

Wood recently portrayed the vampire queen Queen Sophie-Anne on HBO's popular series "True Blood." The actress has also starred in films like "The Wrestler," and "Thirteen."

In April, Wood came out as bisexual and told Esquire magazine that she is dating a woman. The actress and rock star Marilyn Manson called off their engagement in November 2010.

Manson, 42, and Wood dated between 2006 and 2008. The couple reconciled around late 2009 and in January 2010, he proposed to her during a stage performance in Paris.
