Winona Ryder Covers BlackBook Magazine December 2009

Winona Ryder bites back on the December 2009 cover of BlackBook magazine. Here’s what the 38-year-old actress opened up about to BlackBook‘s Nick Haramis:

On Matt Damon and Johnny Depp: “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… ”

On her relationship with the press: “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 Angelina Jolie, who won the 1999 Academy Award for best supporting actress for Girl, Interrupted (Winona starred in and produced the film): “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 [Angleina] to have that part, and I never really felt like I got the chance to know her.”

On if Angelina ever personally thanked her for helping to jump-start her career: “I feel like it won’t read in print very nicely if I say that wasn’t really her style. But she seems to be a completely different person now.”

    Angelina thanked her during the awards season. There were LOTS of awards that Angelina won. She thanked her at the Oscars as well.
    .
    What is Winona’s problem? Is she trying to stir up a non-existent controversy to get publicity knowing Angelina Jolie’s name will get her attention? Pathetic.

  • teri

    No drama with Angelina.

  • LolaSvelt

    ^I haven’t read all of the interview, but does she actually say that Angelina didn’t thank her?

  • Tom

    Horrible photos. Her career never recovered.

  • Blackat

    Geez get over it already. Both Winona and the press! What good does it do discussing something that happened over 10 years ago?
    Check youtube, Angelina thanked Winona at the Oscar Awards, what more could you ask for?
    Can’t these women sell news in ways other than by associating themselves with Angie?

  • teri

    Winona your Amazing, was the thank you Angelina gave her during her acceptance speech what more did she want?

  • LuckyL

    Winona, you c*nt, it wasn’t because it was some “big showy part” it was because it would be DIFFICULT AS SH*T TO PULL OFF AND WHOEVER DID WAS GOING TO BE BRILLIANT. STFU you stupid b*tch. You sucked as Susanna too. People can be given a great script and still f*ck it up so stop acting like it was some pre-made Oscar. Dumb kleptomaniac.

  • LuckyL

    I like how she’s older too and has no family and no friends and no career.

  • teri

    She thanked Columbia House then Winona right after. Then thanked others.

  • LuckyL

    AND WTF DOES SHE HAVE TO THANK HER FOR? DID SHE WRITE THE BOOK? THE SCRIPT? DIRECT THE FILM?

    GOD, I HATE STUPID BITTER B*TCHES

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    it should be ‘why” magazine.
    .
    i don’t know why she’s on anything. she’s nothing.

  • teri

    I’m done commenting on this thread now. It’s for all to view on Utube, Angelina giving her acceptance speech in 2000 and the Winona your Amazing is clearly heard. When she quits blaming others for her ruined reputation of stealing and takes responsibility she’s get her life back on track. Wishing you the best Winona.

  • lovely

    She is very pretty but not much of an actress.

  • coco

    @LuckyL: Neither do you that’s why you are on here 24 / 7!

  • Joanne

    she should get back into acting. she ruined her own rep by stealing.

  • LuckyL

    ^^^And so are you sweety, stalking my everyone move. Take your tongue out my a**hole already

  • http://allwomenstalk.com All Women Stalker

    She probably forgot that Angelina thanked her haha. The photos look nice, though.

    -meream

  • LolaSvelt

    @LuckyL: @LuckyL: You’re so vulgar. It WAS a showy part. Jolie probably had OSCAR in her mind when reading the script. I wasn’t the biggest fan of her performance. Chloe Sevigny should’ve won.

  • mailey

    this woman got good genes. she is always going to look younger than her actual age. nice.

  • QQQQ

    How the HE.LL did WR jump start Angie’s career when Angie won awards the previous 2 yrs for George Wallace (Golden Globes) and GIA. (GG & SAG). Jeeze

    _____________________

    Angie’s career did not need a jump start when she played Lisa in GI. Angie had won 2 consecutive GG and SAGs when she did GI. And Angie did thank WR during her Oscar speech. After all these years why is the interviewer trying to stir up something negative about Angelina and why is WR not gracious in comments about Angie?

  • AutumnM

    Nice to see Winona back. She’s a great actress. Hope to see her starring in some more movies in the future.

  • bye

    Why is she coming out the woodwork? I struggled to recall who she was. She might consider going back, or launch a new anti-aging cream (send Angelina some free samples).

  • Hary

    winona is great the rest of you shut up

  • Luciana

    Love you Winona! Welcome back!

  • fresh

    Who did this interview? Why are they asking questions from 10 years ago?? LAME.

  • Michele

    Bram Stoker’s Drucula could have been SOOOOO much better without her and Keanu and I LOVE Keanu…. She did make the most of her (10) minutes in Star Trek.

  • ellie’

    Nice to see you Winona .. your a great actress hope to see you back in the near future..
    Love the pics.. I’m sure you were questioned about AJ but I understand what your saying.. Just please don’t blow this out of proportion just b/c AJ was mentioned.. My god the hungry wolves are always waiting to fight..Have A great day.. Matt was mentioned & Johnny was and as I see it no one has read the whole article..

  • coco

    Winona is a talented actress – I am glad she is working again. Also, I think she looks pretty and young in these pics. Best of luck to her!

  • Ellen

    Lucky L is a lucky loser. She is the most bitter person on JJ. Very sad!

  • xio pio

    Well, the question says “personally”, maybe they ment in person face to face after the Oscars.

  • lizzie

    The pics aren’t great !

  • LeviKlein

    People should stop jumping around everytime someone says something about Angie. Winona is a great actress, and to me she doesn’t sound mean or bitter.

  • Gia

    God I hope she finds the right role that she loves and could put her back where she needs to be which is on top and possibly with an Oscar. She is by far one of my favorite actresses ever. I wanted to be like her ever since I saw Heathers when I was 5.

  • TWPUMPKIN

    Love Winona! Welcome back.

  • faith faith

    Her career is brilliant. New movie with Raymond Romano HAHAHAHa

  • Lurker

    This bi@tch needs to stop lying, she is another opportunist who is using Angie to gain free publicity. Everyone seems to be coat tailing the JPS lately. A mere mention of their name will get them in the news. Winona knows no one would care what she has to say and even read her interview if she did not mention Angie.

    Here’s the link to Angie’s acceptance speech where she thanked her.

    ######################
    Angie won the National Board of Review Award for Breakthrough Performance earlier than all this for her role in Playing By Heart – a nothing movie.
    .
    Again Angie shone in the not so great film that is Girl Interrupted and made her performance the reason why that movie is even seen or mentioned anymore. Winona should be thanking Angie.

  • DemonMeister

    You people are so ridiculous! Winona herself by no means said she was never thanked… Read the article before you comment and name call! The media will twist anything and everything around to their benefit, in hopes of starting controversy! If you people would actually read the article you would see that it was in fact the interviewer who said “Did Jolie ever thank her?” Winona then said; “I feel like it won’t read in print very nicely if I say that wasn’t really her style, but she seems to be a completely different person now.” So, please someone explain to me how that’s her being bitter or jealous towards Jolie or the past? Winona was simply talking about her experience in seeking help for her anxiety and depression, then relating it to her love of the book and passion for filming “Girl, Interrupted.” That’s not her being bitter about the past as some have said! Moreover, she has said nothing but nice things about Jolie and her performance. Stop making nothing into something!

  • gaga

    What a WATB she is. Let’s get massive attention by bringing up Angie and Depp and then smearing them. YECH!

  • what

    @LuckyL:

    haha no, you dont have to be brilliant to win this oscar. for angelina, playing a person with mental problems come naturally. who the hell cares about oscars anyway? they are just ACTORS.

  • jillybilly

    @All Women Stalker:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Obviously, AJ was supposed to take Winona out for a spa day, feed her peeled grapes and kiss here feet before PERSONALLY holding Ryder’s hand and thanking her with tears dripping down her chin.

  • jillybilly

    @fresh:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Because 10 years ago is about the last time Winona was relevant.

  • Katmandu

    WATB??? LOL!!

    Who is Winona gonna get to “jump start” her career. Whoever it is I hope they don’t hold their breath until she “personally thanks” them.

  • lurker

    Winona, Angie thanked you during the awards and is documented. So, if you think that the part of Angelina was a good one, why did you not STEAL it from her? You are after all a pro and so is Gwynie.

  • Katmandu

    Angie was incredibly brilliant playing Lisa and Winona knows it. The film would have faded into obscurity long ago — along with Winona’s residuals — if it weren’t for AJ’s performance. I wonder if WR has thanked Angie for helping to pay her massive legal bills.

  • http://www.firemendating.com/ Laura Ginger

    I thought Angie did a better job in Gia. Its tough for winona getting older and losing roles to angie.

  • Dorian Gray

    Wow its amazing how good Winona looks. She makes Angelina look like a haggard old turd. Oh wait that’s because she is one.

  • Dorian Gray

    Oh my, I said something bad about your god Angelina, will I be punished now?
