If I showed you scripts from my first few movies, the descriptions of my characters all said ‘the ugly girl’. – Winona Ryder.
That could have well been the case, but perhaps what they were after was a girl with strength beyond her looks, someone with enough intelligence to feel a little darkness, or a young woman with enough of a spirit to have Johnny Depp tattoo ‘Winona Forever’ into his arm.
Let us celebrate Miss Winona Ryder. The 90’s babe who is little in stature with huge, sullen eyes, yet armed with an undeniable staunchness and sparky mouth. I love her tomboy style, her rebellious streak, and her dark, cropped cuts.
