Manson pays Wood highest video salary in history

Marilyn Manson made sure his girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood became the highest paid actress in music video history for her sex scenes with him in new promo Heart-Shaped Glasses.

Manson, who split from his wife Dita Von Teese last December, reportedly as a result of his relationship with Wood, was determined the 19-year-old should be properly compensated for her raunchy appearance.

The first two minutes of the Heart-Shaped Glasses promo feature Manson and Wood writhing around naked, having passionate sex - with many believing the couple actually made love for the cameras.

Manson tells MTV News: "I did insist that Evan be paid the most that any actress has ever been paid in music-video history to be in this, even though she wouldn't have asked for it. There's no one else that could've been in it, because it was inspired by her."
