Winona Ryder is maybe one of everyone’s favorite 90’s actresses and style inspirations, for Lydia Deetz alone. She was awesome in so many things, especially Girl, Interrupted but was overshadowed by a blonde Jolie. And then one day Ms. Ryder got arrested for shoplifting and then kind of disappeared. But, to quote Johnny Depp‘s tattoo: WINONA FORVER. (After their breakup he changed it to WINO FOREVER. He’s so creative!)
She’s been living in San Francisco and is getting ready for a comeback with her film The Iceman, starring Michael Shannon. Michael Shannon recently impressed us all with his dramatic reading of the sorority girl email, so this film is probably gonna be preeettttttayyy prettttttay good.
As Winona hits the press circuit ahead of The Iceman — in which she plays the wife of a hitman — the star looks eerily like she did 20 years ago.
But Ryder has the experience of more than two decades in Hollywood behind her and admits that all the fame and attention wasn’t so easy as a young celebrity:
“Even in the height of everything in the ’90s — even though I was the right age, I didn’t look the right age. I dealt with the age issue on the other side of not looking like I’m old enough … I worked very hard, and it took its toll.”
Ryder had a brief hiatus from acting in the early 00s after she was arrested in a high-profile shoplifting case.
“But looking back, I just feel very, very fortunate … I am very happy in my life, very interested in other things. So it takes something special … I’m not interested in playing the girl that’s just there to make the guy, you know, give him a talking to.”
Whoa whoa whoa DAVID SCHWIMMER? It’s like a 90’s twofer!
Here’s some photos of her from The Iceman premiere. I am LOVING that she didn’t cover all of her grey hairs. NOT SARCASM, THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY. Can we please make this a thing? Not sure though about the dress + heels though.
