Winona Ryder Gets Candid In New Interview
Referring to her 1999 film, Girl Interrupted, about a young woman in a psychiatric hospital, Johnny Depp's ex-girlfriend Winona revealed to Harper's Bazaar magazine, "That was my Girl, Interrupted real life."
"I remember, I was playing this character who ends up getting tortured in a Chilean prison [in the 1994 drama The House of the Spirits]. I would look at these fake bruises and cuts on my face [from the shoot], and I would struggle to see myself as this little girl. ‘Would you be treating this girl like you’re treating yourself?’ I remember looking at myself and saying, ‘This is what I’m doing to myself inside.’ Because I just wasn’t taking care of myself," she continued.
Winona is grateful for the support she received from her co-star and friend Michelle Pfeiffer at the time. "I remember Michelle being like, ‘This is going to pass.’ But I couldn’t hear it," she said to Harper's Bazaar.
We are for sure grateful that Winona pushed through and has come out better than ever.
