Marilyn Manson says new love Evan Rachel Wood is his soulmate.
The goth rocker, who split with wife Dita Von Teese late last year, says the young actress is his perfect partner.
The 38-year-old told France's Le Parisien newspaper: "I've found my double, my twin, in my new girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood. She's l9 and certainly that's very young, but that's not a problem for me. She likes the same things as me. She understands I like to get up when night falls and go to sleep at dawn."
Manson, who is promoting his sixth album 'Eat Me, Drink Me', says his difficult break-up was his inspiration for the record. He explained: "Our relationship ended at Halloween. I was completely destroyed psychologically. I'd rented a house and begun working on this disc, which sort of tells everything that happened to me during the past year."
Manson says the marriage failed because he didn't want to settle down and become "more adult". He explained: "I was married to someone who wanted me to change. Become more adult, more responsible. I began not to like myself, not like what I do. I lost my identity. Everything began collapsing around me. The record allowed me to put an end to that. Dita left at Christmas while I was recording."
Manson - real name Brian Warner - and burlesque star Dita began dating in 2001, before marrying in December 2005. It has been reported the rocker's relationship with Evan was a factor in Dita's decision to file for divorce last December. Manson met Evan after casting her in his new horror movie 'Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll'.
