Winona Ryder recently discussed what it was like working with Angelina Jolie and Brittany Murphy on their 1999 movie, Girl Interrupted, saying that she was disappointed that she didn't become friends with Angie after working on the film together.
Even though she was hoping the two would be great friends, Winona says that Angelina insisted on staying in character and maintained a distance from her. She adds:
"I remember thinking, 'Oh we're going to turn out to be great friends.' But I think she needed to be able to look at me just as the character Susanna, not as Winona, so in a very respectful way she just kind of kept her distance. I saw her at one of the awards shows but I haven't really seen her since."
However, she does say that she is very proud of the way Angelina has handled her career.
"What she's accomplished after the film in terms of humanitarian stuff, I'm just really happy she did that. I remember in the press junket for Girl, Interrupted she would just be so open about her problems and then I would come in and everyone would think I was so boring. So it's really great to see she's found her calling in her personal life."
As for Winona's other co-star, she reveals how Brittany Murphy's sudden death affected her. "I can't watch the movie now because of Brittany Murphy. She kills herself in the movie . I was very close to her before she died."
Sad. We can only imagine how hard that would be to re-watch those scenes.
As for Angelina and Winona - we think they should pair up again and make another movie!
