Winona Shares A Lot About Her Private Life

Winona Ryder sat down for a photo shoot and chatted about her life in the latest issue of BlackBook magazine. She has a film, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee to promote, but Winona had plenty of other things to discuss. Winona talked about a variety of topics, from her famous exes like Matt Damon and Johnny Depp to her feelings about Angelina Jolie winning the Oscar for Girl, Interrupted. Here's more:

  • On dating Johnny Depp: "Things changed for me when I met Johnny. This weird thing happens when you’re written about in magazines, where you start to think, 'This is who I am. This is how I have to be.' I felt restricted and pressured into being the way people perceived me. It was hard for me to find my footing. The Johnny thing made me really afraid of the press because, even though it was about him, I was beside him the entire time."
  • On her relationship with Matt Damon: "Matt couldn’t be a greater, nicer guy. I’m really lucky that I’m on good terms with him. . . With Johnny, it’s like we’re good, but we lead very different lives. I was out at a bar with a friend who said, 'Do you realize that in America you’re never going to be able to meet a guy who knows nothing about you? Everyone will have preconceived ideas about who you are.' I got so bummed out. I’d never really thought about it that way."
  • On knowing Angelina Jolie since Girl, Interrupted: "I never had any bad feelings about Angelina. . . And I was hurt that people thought that. Everyone assumed I was really jealous because I thought this would be my vehicle. . . We said from the very beginning that the actress who played Lisa would probably win an Oscar, because it was the big, great, showy part. But I always related to Susanna. I fought very hard for her to have that part, and I never really felt like I got the chance to know her."

Winona will hardly talk at all about her current private life because she got burned when she talked about her private life in the 90s. I notice though just about the only current thing that she mentions is that she is single. This is pretty pathetic if you think about it.

And another thing . . . Winona gives an interview in some obscure magazine where she brings up two famous ex-boyfriends, neither of whom has every said a word about her and she brings up Angelina Jolie, who also has never said a word about her. Why? Hasn't she done anything significant in the past 10 years that would interest an interviewer or the public? Why bring up old BFs and a follow actress from so many years ago when she refuses to discuss the shoplifting mess? I have a feeling Winona hasn't thorougly worked out her mental problems. Maybe she shouldn't be out promoting this movie that nobody will probably see.

Hasn't the "Gwyneth gossip" already been spilled? And didn't Gwynnie just recently diss Winona on her "GOOP" blog? I don't think what happen between them is a top secret.

She's too classy to spill the Gwynneth gossip in an interview.

I can't help liking Winona. She really is a very talented actress and I loved her performances in The Crucible and Mermaids so much. I hope things continue to pick up for her.

I love Winona, the 90's were all about her: Heathers, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands... Loved her then, love her now. And yes - I would love the Gwyneth goss too!

i've always had a soft spot for winona. she was a great actress who did make some bad choices (life and scripts!), but i'd love to see her back on top. i also wish there was some dirt spilled about Shakespeare in Love!!!

^Skankolina may say she doesn't know where her Oscar is but you know she's lying. She was so freaking thrilled to get it...maybe she gave it to her brother LOL
