Winona Ryder Was Told She Was 'Not Pretty Enough' To Be An Actress!

winona ryder not pretty enough

Winona Ryder has been a movie star for 20 years. She was an international sex symbol.

Her name was tattooed on Johnny Depp for pete's sake!

But when she first started acting in her teens, the Iceman star was given the cold shoulder by casting directors! She says:

"I was in the middle of auditioning, and I was mid-sentence when the casting director said, 'Listen, kid. You should not be an actress. You are not pretty enough. You should go back to wherever you came from and you should go to school. You don't have it.'

She was very blunt — I honestly think that she thought she was doing me a favor."

Wow! Winona freakin' Ryder wasn't pretty enough!

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see all the evidence to the contrary!

So just remember that the next time someone throws some shade your way, or makes you feel like you're not pretty enough, or good enough, or up to the challenge.

Just remember- some people are stupid! LOLz!

    Re: chloeRe: chloeRe: chloe

    Her Mom used to be a movie projectionist in a movie , not a casting director. She used to make Winona stay home from school to watch old movies. That's where her love for old movies come from. Her brother Jubal was a movie theater usher. so i guess you can say they were in the biz. There's a lot more actors out there whose parents are buig in the biz like Winona's one-time gal pal Gwyneth whose Dad was a Director and her Mom is none other than the divine Blythe Danner(love her!). And her one-time and very brief beau Christian Slater's Mom Mary Jo is a Casting Director. And then there's the Gyllenhaals. And of course, KStew.

    Winona is an amazing actress and she pretty very pretty.she way better then those new fucking actress that just look pretty and can't act Megan fox, Kristin Stewart you suck. Maybe the people who cast these actress should think with their head and not there head not the head they have from the waist below. Come on Hollywood magazines. Are for pretty b**itches with no talent they always have playboy
