One review praised Wood's performance as "excellent".
Across the Universe, a Julie Taymor-directed musical that was nominated for a Golden Globe and an Academy Award and was set in Liverpool, New York City, and Vietnam, focused on the tribulations of several characters during the counter-cultural revolution of the 1960s. Wood, who has described the music of The Beatles as a major part of her life, played Lucy, who develops a relationship with Jude (Jim Sturgess).

“They want to make it work.” In Elin Nordegren’s defense, she walked away with enough of Tiger Woods’ money to topple a government – Maybe ours? – so who are we to begrudge her some sport fucking to pass the days? As for Gavin Rossdale, don’t even bother getting jealous.
She began acting in the 1990s, appearing in several television series, including American Gothic (1995–96) and Once and Again (1999–2002).
