Winona Ryder Steals Our Hearts With Her Sticky-Fingered Story!

winona ryder interview magazine shoplifting quote

If there is one thing we never expected Winona Ryder to say, it's "Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!" — because we all know how that turns out!!

If there's another topic we thought would be taboo, however, it was the 41-year-old thespian's trouble with the law!

And we were wrong!!

The Black Swan starlet spoke candidly in Interview's May issue. She was neither shy about her 2001 shoplifting scandal nor the incidents in her life that led her there!

Winona revealed:

“I was starting to have some trouble before [my shoplifting arrest.] I think a lot of people think that that is what sort of sent me off in another direction, but I was actually starting to have some trouble a few years before. And then there were also a couple of movies that I was going to do, that were all set up, and then, at the last minute, they fell apart…”

Aww! Reality does bite sometimes, but now all that dramz is in the past!!

Winona completed her comeback with Michael Shannon in The Iceman and she was lovely in Frankenweenie, too — the world is her oyster!!

All we require now is the long-awaited sequel to Heathers, LOLz!!

    I think she's alluding to Shakespeare in Love with that last comment. Apparently, she had the script for it at her place and Gwyneth Paltrow took and we all know how that turned out.

    She's 41?! She still looks like she's in her 20s.

    If I can recall the last time she was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno was 2002 after her arrest. I'm sure she was nervous and had other things on her mind during that time, which could explain her behavior. She seems more calm and in a good place now. She is a wonderful actress. I wish people could just judge her on her acting and leave that period alone now. We all make mistakes and we learn and grow from them.

    Re: Tara

    Well, in the actual interview, which has been rephrased in this page—she said it was a Milos Foreman project. There's only one Milos Foreman project that Winona was suppose to do—a project called "Embers" but the timeline doesn't add up. She was arrested in 2001 and the news about Embers didn't come out til 2004.

    As for the whole Shakespeare in Love thing, I doubt that that's what really happened. Winona's a very giving actress. She's not weird about losing parts. Win and Gwyn's falling out was cited as 'they grew apart' and in an interview for Vogue, Win said—"It's not as dramatic as people make it out to be". They even still hung out at the premiere of The Talented Mr. Ripley after allegedly having a 'falling out'.

    Re: V

    The Tonight Show appearance was for "Girl, Interrupted" which came out in December 1999. She was arrested in December 12, 2001. The nervousness is just part of her personality. Winona is and always will be a reluctant celebrity. A brilliant actress, no less.

    She won't appear again in another late night talk show until January of 2011 on Jimmy Fallon's show. And recently again on April 30, 2013. She seems to be getting more comfortable though in front of a live audience. She still talks about how computer illiterate she is which is hilarious.
