Winona Ryder: Kristen Stewart & Jennifer Lawrence Are Incredibly Talented!

Winona Ryder: Kristen Stewart & Jennifer Lawrence Are Incredibly Talented!

Winona Ryder goes dramatic on the cover of V Magazine‘s Winter issue, on newsstands November 14.

Here’s what the 43-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her comments about Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence: “I was recently asked about Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence. In answering I was very genuine, and I did say that I thought they were both incredibly talented. But I mentioned something about their privacy and how my heart goes out to them, and the feedback I got was like, HOW DARE SHE! It’s just another example of something be taking out of context, the interpretation was that I pitied them or something… But these are great actresses!”

On why she dropped out of school: “I was obsessed with Bugsy Malone and cut my hair short. I remember the halls were empty and these kids started shouting: f*ggot. And I didn’t think they were talking to me.”

On her Homefront character: “She’s this woman who had been in a biker gang and that is a hard-core scene. What’s creepy is that she’s sober and she’s running this drug operation with James Franco’s character and to me, it’s the epitome of evil in a weird way. If it’s possible to be a victim and be diabolical at the same time. I had never explored that.”

    The film she is in is called Homefront not Homeland.

    Kristen Stewart a very talented actress?? puhlease!! After seeing a comment like that, I can’t hardly take winona’s interview seriously.

  • Sim

    Well, finally I have always said from Kristen is talented, he writes that only idiots do , jealous

  • Sim

    Well, finally I have always said from Kristen is talented, he writes that only idiots do

  • Sim

    @Jen: Kisten is talented, but I disagree that I jenifer , you are definitely a fan of insanely rob what you are jealous you can not handle what she Oh, please go with his stupid commentary shit

  • Haha

    @Sim: The problem with Kristen is that she has one disgusted/in pain expression throughout the whole movie she’s in. I cringed when I watched her in Snow White and Twilight, her nauseated sole expression was.. annoying. I expect more of an actress. She doesn’t seem interested or there. She seems to be someplace else in her thoughts. You’ll maybe say “oh she just has some kind of mystery about her” but no….. It’s not enough to say that. Many other mysterious actresses did it better. I think kristen is pretty but her acting just sucks mighty balls. You’ve got to say it as it is!

  • talia

    @Haha: Twilight and Snow White and the Huntsman are not the best films to judge her acting on,she played the role of Bella exactly as she is written in the book. Have you ever actually watched any of the films where critics have praised her performance?

  • Sim

    @Haha: You’re an idiot, you’ve seen her film at all, let me tell you, if it was a bad actress, and still the same terms should be so many films and others, the answer is no, so baby you’re either a moron or serious blind, you’re probably crazy fan Rob, I would not consider myself stiděla, seriously write such crap, go to heal, you’re probably a little girl which it does not have insane

  • Ross

    Hey Just Jared!

    Winona Ryder is 42 years old, not 43. They fixed the typo from “Homeland” to “Homefront” now fix this one.

  • bebe

    yeah, i think kristen stewart is really talented too. people have gotta know the difference between BELLA and kristen stewart! they are two different people, people!

  • bebe

    @Sim: dude, jennifer is really talented too

  • Fercat

    @bebe:
    The thing with Jennifer though is that she’s always playing to her strengths. It kinda gets old and becoming a one note actress. All her characters are essentially the same.

  • Problem?

    I’ve seen Kristen in Snowhite, on the road and into the wild (oh, and in Panic Room). And…I don’t like her as an actress – it’s just my opinion. She seems to hasn’t much control over her facial expressions and looking bored most of the time and that’s very sad for an actress. But at the end she is a better actress than Megan Fox. ;)

  • Yawn

    Winona Ryder was bigger than Jennifer and Kristen combined, in her heyday, before she took up shoplifting.

  • Haha

    @Sim: Was it necessary to call me an “idiot”? Can’t you argue with someone without calling names?! No, for your information I am absolutely not a fan of Rob Patz. Not at all. I was just giving my opinion. You know that one that I am entitled to. But I guess only your stupid a$s can give yours, the best of all, right! Can’t you defend your favorite without talking ish about Rob’s fans btw? Pffft. So defensive and harsh for such a small debate. It’s not like I insulted her or something. I’m just stating what I think. Overreacting people like you sicken me. I don’t even want to say anything more. I hope you’re not like that in real life.

  • ha ha

    Kristen? LOL hs eis terrible! Jennifer is good not great but good but Kristen?? HAHAHAHAHA nope she is terrible and nope I don’t like Robert P. he is ugly as horrible actor ¬¬’

  • ha ha

    @Sim: Kid , go away honey grow up a little!

  • LaCroix

    Sorry but I can’t take anything Winona Ryder has to say seriously. Kristen Stewart shouldn’t even be acting.. get real Winona. And Jen is OVERrated. The only young actress who has potential to being fantastic is Mia Wasikowska.

  • SleeperWillWake

    @Haha: ” I think kristen is pretty but her acting just sucks mighty balls. You’ve got to say it as it is!” Guy, that is just your opinion. Do you know how many reviews I’ve read that praised Kristen performance in Snow White. It’s fine to have an opinion but don’t act as if your opinion is a fact.

  • SleeperWillWake

    @LaCroix:” Sorry but I can’t take anything Winona Ryder has to say seriously. ” Yeah, cause she dares to have an opinion different from yours. Seriously, grow up.

  • SleeperWillWake

    The people who are complaining about Kristen and Jennifer need to stop. It’s fine to have a constructive criticism when you actually have a constructive criticism. Simply regurgitating negative feedback that other people have been saying doesn’t mean you’re giving a critical analysis. I’m not sure if people actually believe that Kristen looks bored in every movie or that Jennifer is an overrated one note actress. Or if they’re just saying that because they think that is the popular consensus. It’s probably that latter.

  • Hardeyincar

  • Sim

    @Haha: Kristen is a great actress, I got it right in the head I saw her movies and Jets when something is in the movie look disappointed with Mutne it is clear that the shape of the other, for God’s sake people have a brain, some people seriously entertained as They are stupid, or I ignore people like you, only I’m jealous and obsessed you would not be without Kristen

  • Sim

    @Sim: Jo is because I really have Kristen is a great actress from you because of some stupid not, most of the actors and the director says it’s great and not some stupid man? haha you’re ridiculous my opinion is that Jenifer’s not good, it’s Mean actress par with movies and Kristen has over 30 films so that if she should so bad? Probably not, you’re crazy and obsessed aspon goes to see who is the normal person and who is crazy, seek the advice, I’m taking opinions from normal people intellectually and not from what a fool sparkle STUPID and hateful comments

  • LaCroix

    @SleeperWillWake: That is not a matter of opinion. Its a damn fact. Kristen is pathetic ..telling me to grow up proves how blind & immature you are for someone to have an opinion other than your own. stfu!

  • Sim

    @LaCroix: Bite too seriously grow up, have someone criticize or do not know him, I will not tell you that if you knew but you do not know him, and the tikas is pathetic from what you wrote here too I can tell you’re pathetic and embarrassing jealous if you do not like good but not write there are some stupid commentary nobody is curious just idiots and possessed most of the actors rumored that Kristen is a great actress, and not just those I believed I saw her movies so shut up

  • Sim

    @LaCroixIf it was not good she should over 30 films, and no one would not take much at all you are, you are probably young and stupid to you this one understood, if it was bad no one would want to, but they want it, so Oh, please be so kind and bite you to think in te your silly head:

  • lol

    Was she high when she gave those answers? Jennifer is a good actress, but Kristen? Really? lol

  • Sam

    I read the entire interview that Wynona is referring to. Wynona gave that interview with W magazine and she did not at any time pitied Kristen and Jennifer against each other. Whoever gave Wynona a hard time about the privacy comments she made obviously did not read the interview. Wynona was highly complimentary of both Kristen and Jennifer and said she felt sorry for both for the amount of pappz intrusion and false gossip they both get.

  • Sim

    @lol: I got on the contrary JENIFER not a good actress,’s nothing much, but Kristen TA is great, I’ve seen many of her films, but here perhaps only write SILLEN fan Rob had been filmed by a bad turn, many people say it’s great but there is You will always find some idiots

  • Wowie

    Wow. Crazy world. KStew has managed to slither her way up through tabloid fame all the way to being in a praising headline as an actress with Jennifer Lawrence.

  • SleeperWillWake

    @LaCroix: “That is not a matter of opinion. Its a damn fact. Kristen is pathetic ..telling me to grow up proves how blind & immature you are for someone to have an opinion other than your own. stfu!” Do you not realize how idiotic and logical incoherent you sound. You say I’m being immature and blind for not accepting a person’s opinion different from your own. Then claim that your opinion is a fact? No, it’s your opinion is not a fact it’s a matter of an opinion. If you weren’t hellbent on seeing your opinion as a fact you would acknowledge that Kristen receives a lot positive feedback especially from critics on her performances in films like Adventureland, Cake Eaters, and On The Road. If anyone needs to stfu and think before the speak is you.

  • SleeperWillWake

    “KStew has managed to slither her way up through tabloid fame all the way to being in a praising headline as an actress with Jennifer Lawrence.”

    Sure she slither her to fame by putting part of franchise that no one knew was going to be a big hit. *eyeroll*

It’s you who needs to stfu and think before you speak.

  • M.s.

    @SleeperWillWake: How many times do you want to repeat, if the wretched Why do you keep shooting a film, maybe because he’s a great actress, saying that a lot of people, but you can not understand it, you are a fool, and possessed

  • M.s.

    Kristen is beautiful and a great actress

  • I love

    Kristen is beautiful and a great actress ♥♥♥♥♥

  • LaCroix

    LMAO at the trolls. If Kristen asked you to eat her crap you probably would.. delusional monkeys.

  • SleeperWillWake

    @LaCroix: “If Kristen asked you to eat her crap you probably would.. delusional monkeys.” So you claim that anyone who dares to say that Kristen is a good actress would eat her crap if she asked. And we’re the trolls?

  • Nightwish

    How awesome is it to have Kristen AND WINONA mentioned in the same post? Kristen is so fine, but Winona in her time would have given her a major run for her money. They are both awesome

  • Sam

    In this photo, Wynona reminds me of a young Barbra Streissand. I am glad that Wynona is back making movies. She is talented, is aging beautifully, and still has a freshness and softness about her that I always liked. Come to think of it, I would like to see Wynona and Kristen Stewart in a movie together. Very different personalities but I can see some chemistry between them.

  • Leah

    kristen stewart is incridibly talented?talented at what?LOL. She’s worst actress ever !!!

  • M.s.

    @Leah: Interesting how ever you can tell, I’ll tell you something GOLD IF BALA worst, it would revolve more and more movies, most actors and directors say it’s great, so your bullshit and lies are stupid, go to heal, another fan ROB

  • i have hater

    Kristen is the best actress at all, it is interesting how everyone says how bad it is, I’ll tell you one thing if ldi tro was true did not play in the next movie, he should so many of them, etc … You’re just jealous jne a stupid idiot, of who you take into account his regret

  • Tin Tin

    Still—no one compares to Winona back when she was the IT girl of Hollywood. She’s just a natural. Let’s just say—if she hadn’t fumbled–as in ‘the incident’ that ruined her career, thus giving way to other actresses with lesser talents—where would these so-called actresses be? Glad Winona’s slowly rebuilt her career though. She may never be Leading Lady Material again but I think that’s how she wants it.
