Evan Rachel Wood spooked by Page

Evan Rachel Wood wishes she could tell her younger self that it's OK to be vulnerable.

The two actresses can be seen in upcoming sci-fi movie Into the Forest, in which they play sisters who must survive in remote woods on the brink of an apocalypse. They have been snapped on set looking close and in reality Evan "loved every minute" of working with Ellen.

"As intense as the movie is, we actually laughed a lot and had a really good time. She’s one of those people that can turn it on and off. It’s kind of scary how quickly she can do it - she’s literally laughing one second, and then the next she’s in character. Her whole face changes. She morphs into what she’s doing, and it’s really fun to watch," Evan smiled to

"But, we really took care of each other. We had to go to deep, vulnerable places in the film, and we were always there holding and hugging each other - like real sisters helping each other through the whole process. We got really close. We… spent as much time as possible together so we could really bond... She’s one of my closest friends now."

Evan is a supporter of Gucci's Chime for Change campaign, which supports education, health, and justice initiatives for women worldwide. She’s struggled in the past and wishes she could go back and give her younger self some advice.

"It gets better. And, you’re not alone. I think when I was younger, I felt like I was the only one going through certain things or that no one understood me," she recalled. "I didn’t really talk about my problems, and I didn’t reach out and ask for help. I think that’s one of the best lessons I learned: it’s OK to be vulnerable; it’s OK to ask for help."
