Winona Ryder 'Hit A Wall' When She Was Caught Shoplifting

MyDaily's favourite Nineties icon Winona Ryder is back on the big screen this year in The Iceman and now the former girlf of Johnny Depp (remember the "Winona forever" tat?) has opened up to Interview Germany about the notorious shoplifting incident in 2001, telling the magazine she'd "hit the wall".

"Many people probably think that everything started to go wrong from there," she explained. "But that already happened years before."

The star added, "I already had a lot of trouble back then. And then a lot of movies I was supposed to do didn't happen - that's when I hit the wall. I really needed a timeout.

"In retrospective, it was probably the best thing that could have happened to me."

Winona also spoke openly about her family. "My parents are great, they're really great, but they're also very alternative. They now live in Canada. They moved there when Bush was reelected... everyone just talked about it, but they really did it," she said.

"So you see I really do come from an alternative background. My earliest memories are from City Lights, the legendary bookshop in San Francisco. The owners used to babysit me."

And speaking about what she misses about the cinema before social media became so, well, EVERYWHERE she said, "That's what I miss: being an actress that's currently shooting with Al Pacino or Robert De Niro.

"You wait for that movie for a year, you queue up to see it at the theater. You basically know nothing about the movie, but you're still excited."

However, the cover shoot styled by Karl Templer and photographed by Craig McDean, 41-year-old Winona proved that even though it's not the Nineties anymore, Winona's still got it.
