Evan Rachel Wood & 'The L Word' Star Katherine Moennig Break Up

It feels like just weeks ago -- because it was -- that we heard actress Evan Rachel Wood had met and started dating her dreamgirl crush: The L Word star Katherine Moennig. The story was all kinds of adorable. After splitting from ex-husband Jamie Bell, with whom she shares a baby boy, Wood admitted she spotted Moennig from afar at a flea market, but was too shy to say hello. She and Katherine struck up a friendship, which eventually turned into a romance. But, sadly, their happy days together as a couple have ended only after a few months.

Rumor has it Wood, 27, and 36-year-old Moennig broke up sometime in early November and that Wood is not happy about it. On Nov. 9, she tweeted the following line from The Lion King: "The past can hurt, but the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it." Prior to that tweet, she reportedly tweeted, "...it hurts."

Aww. Wood always seemed wiser than her years, like a bit of an old soul, and it makes sense to me that she was with a woman nearly 10 years her senior. She has also been through so much heartache and instability in her relationships and I would love to see her happy in a union with a intelligent, strong person -- male or female.

The actress came out as bisexual after her 2011 split from Marilyn Manson. She and Bell were married for two years and share custody of their 16-month-old son. It can't be easy finding someone suitable in Hollywood and Moennig seemed like a good match for her. We hear they may just be taking a break -- perhaps their schedules are too hectic -- so I wouldn't be surprised if we see them back together sooner rather than later.

Did you think Evan and Katherine made a good couple? Why do you think they called it quits?
