Love It or Leave It: LOVE IT, Because Winona Ryder’s Still Got It

So, as someone born in the eighties, and a definite product of the nineties, I love Winona Ryder. I, like Johnny Depp, would tattoo “Winona Forever” somewhere (discreet) on my body, and I could probably watch Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, Heathers, Great Balls of Fire!, and Welcome Home, Roxy Carmichael (among many others) on loop for the rest of my life and never get sick of it. OK?

That being said, Winona-girl really needs to start owning this red carpet thing if she’s ever going to fully resurrect a career, because this skitzy, mousy “Eek! I’m here and I’m going to just clutch my clutch like it’s going to save my life” presence is really, really bad. I still love the wide-eyed innocence that Winona is so good at exuding (unless that’s Xanax, and in that case, Winona … let’s try some uppers for a change, eh?), but she really, really needs to come a bit more out of her shell so we can begin, again, to fully appreciate how amazing Winona Ryder really is.

What do you guys think—Winona Ryder’s recent red carpet appearance?

  • Always loved her. She’s been underappreciated for all of her career. I hope we see more of her. And, by the way, she must of sneaked some of Johnny Depp’s magic youth elixir out of the fridge because she looks like she has hardly aged at all!

  • Outstanding post but I was wanting to know if you could write a litte
    more on this subject? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Thank you!

  • Uhm, part of Winona’s charm is being awkward…it’s actually what I like about her. She’s extraordinarily beautiful but not in a slutty way like so many actresses in Hollywood who play the “I’m a sexy woman and you’re gonna worship me” kind of way. I feel sorry for actresses who exploit their body to get what they want. At least Winona has real acting chops and is hired for an acting job without taking her clothes off. The incident that happened in 2001 made her more human to me. Plus she said in an interview once that she wasn’t comofrtable being a role model, she said—“What if I mess up someday?”
