Winona graced the cover of Sunday Times Style magazine this past Sunday (February 28), in a great interview by Edwina Ings-Chambers and photograph by Phil Poynter. I wasn’t able to get proper scans of the magazine yet, but my friend Lindsey got the article for us, which you can read under the cut tag.

It’s hard to talk about Winona Ryder without at least acknowledging the mythos that surrounded her as she came to define a certain authentic cool in the early ’90s. Doe-eyed and dark-haired, Ryder appeared, for young people who identified outside the mainstream, to be a kindred spirit. She entered pop consciousness in late ’80s as a cult-movie ingénue of sorts, first as the goth pixie Lydia Deetz in Tim Burton’s absurdist Beetlejuice (1988), and then as Veronica, a too-smart recruit to the mean-girls clique, in the dark revenge comedy Heathers (1989). Soon after, she established her indie cred in Jim Jarmusch’s Night on Earth (1991) and embodied the Gen X zeitgeist in Ben Stiller’s Reality Bites (1994), in effect, becoming an icon of quirky angst, and in the process, revealing herself to be one of the most precociously talented actresses of her generation.
Growing up in San Francisco and, for four years, in a commune in Northern California, Ryder fell in love with film watching the greats: Bette Davis, Gena Rowlands, Ruth Gordon, and Audrey Hepburn. And, now 44, she’s built her own body of work by making shrewd choices those actresses would approve of, including last year playing a tough city councilwoman in David Simon’s HBO miniseries Show Me a Hero. Ryder will next star in the Netflix supernatural-thriller series Stranger Things, as well as the spring beauty campaign for her longtime friend, the designer Marc Jacobs.
In February, Ryder met with her friend, fellow actress and Rookie editor-in-chief Tavi Gevinson to talk about film and favorite actresses. Gevinson, who will appear, beginning this month, in the Broadway production of The Crucible, where she plays Mary Warren, came prepared, and the two dived in.

Winona Ryder – I’ve always held the original script of Heathers among the great literature that I’ve ever read. For me, it’s like Ezra Pound, Philip Roth, Saul Bellow, and Daniel Waters, you know?
