Actress Evan Rachel Wood is struggling to get back into work mode as she suffers 'separation anxiety' whenever she is away from her newborn child. The 26-year-old took a four-month break from filming to spend the early days of her son's life at home, but she recently returned to the promotional trail to support her new movie 'Charlie Countryman'. At a screening of the film here, Wood said she hates to leave her baby at home when she has work, reports contactmusic.com.'I was lucky because I had done three films and got pregnant so I was like, 'I've got stuff in the can. I'm taking a break,' she said.
'I've been having separation anxiety because I'm so used to him being right here all the time. They kind of become a part of you, you know,' she added. The child, whose name Wood is yet to reveal, is her first with husband Jamie Bell.

Parents are like solid pillars on which the children lean knowing that they always are there for them.
Even later when the child attends school, academic issues and friends and social behaviour are all dependent, directly or indirectly on the parents. The adolescent stage also needs parents in no small measure. The simple knowledge that the parents are present physically, mentally and emotionally in an unconditional manner means a lot to the child.' Read more
