Winona Ryder: “I love getting older. I’ve been waiting so long for that to happen!”

winona1 - Winona Ryder: "I love getting older. I’ve been waiting so long for that to happen!"

On how she loves getting older:

“I love getting older. I think it has to do with always being the kid on set. It’s interesting because, these days, [cosmetic surgery] is treated almost like hygiene. I’ve had people say to me, ‘Oh, you should, you know…’ and they point to my forehead. ‘Get that seen to!’ But I’m like, ‘No! I’ve been waiting so long for that to happen!’”

On how she doesn’t see casting-ageism as a bad thing:

“I know actresses have a tough time because of their age – they’re just not getting hired. I know it exists. You’re the girlfriend, then you’re the mother. But I don’t see it as a bad thing – it can be just as interesting, if not more so, than the leading-lady, ingénue phase.”

… says 44 year-old Winona.

    I’ve always really liked Winona, even during her crazier phases. She has such beautiful skin.

  • prettydarnfunny

    good for her. finally someone who doesn’t buy into the “don’t age” crap.

    • Deborah G.

      Cameron Diaz has similar views as well.

  • SexxyManatee

    She is beautiful, but I really dislike the choice for the cover photo. The way the light hits her right eye looks odd to me.

  • chris

    She’s had so much work done though! Looks like she can’t quite close her eyes anymore!

  • Ellie

    She looks SO youthful. But I think she’s got something done…she has “crazy eyes” now. Something looks off! Still, she looks beautiful!

    I love her and her new show is great.

  • OfCourseTheyreReal

    I love her face, features, & coloring. And she’s right: older females DO get roles. Of course they do. Don’t we see older women in movies on a constant basis? What’s wrong with playing someone older & unmarried, a working mother, or D.A.?

    Men play older once they grow older, too. When they don’t, it’s gross. Hugh Grant played the hot guy a few years too long. Now he’s gotten real.

    One of the most interesting things an actress has had to say.
