Evan Rachel Wood 'Felt Like Meat' During Vanity Fair's 2003 Young Hollywood Shoot

Back in July 2003, Evan Rachel Wood was one of nine young female stars chosen to appear on the now-infamous cover of Vanity Fair's Young Hollywood issue. That year, Wood rose to stardom with the teenage-rebellion film "Thirteen" and posed for Vanity Fair alongside the likes of Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan and the Olsen twins.

The experience, however, was apparently not an enjoyable one.

A Twitter user posted a photo of the cover image, shot by Mark Seliger, with the message, "NEVER FORGET." Wood responded with a series of tweets about the shoot.

In 2003, Wood had never heard of Juicy Couture and while the rest of the group was debating over Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera she chose Alanis Morissette. During her Vanity Fair interview she said her pet peeve was “people that do things because they think they should be doing them."

Last year, Wood -- who has been acting since she was 9 years old -- stood up for scrutinized young stars who've grown up in the public eye.

“When you’re a teenager in an adult career, people expect you to be perfect and expect you to never make mistakes or to be a reckless teenager," she told the Daily Beast. "And then when you are, they give you such a really hard time for it. You have to remind them that you’re still a kid ... I was never a Bieber or a Cyrus, but I think the judgment was there, sure.”
