Time flies! This year Heathers is turning 25 years old, and Entertainment Weekly gave us a really great interview with Winona, Christian Slater, producer Denise Di Novi, Director Michael Lehmann and writer Daniiel Waters.
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?

So, today our website is turning 10 years old. It’s crazy how many time has passed and yet, it doesn’t seems so.
Winona Forever is my passion project, created due a wish to have a place to reunite fans and show my appreciation on this amazing actress. And here we are, 10 years later. Thanks everyone who’s with us since our first post!
To celebrate, as you can see, we have a new layout featuring the gorgeous images published on Red magazine. I had other things planned, but unfortunately, it didn’t work. I hope you like the layout, tho!
BBC Two is currently airing Turks & Caicos since last March 20, and the DVD with the whole trilogy already has a release date: April 27th, but sadly only in UK.
You can find in our gallery today new production stills, the DVD cover, and screencaptures of the film itself. The film is getting mixed reviews, but one of the high points is – as we’re used to – Winona’s performance.
Winona Ryder and I are sitting side by side in silence on a sofa in the bar of Chateau Marmont, holding our palms upturned and outstretched.
â€œYou see,â€ she says with a smile. â€œIt frees you up, doesnâ€™t it? Everything sort of comes to the surface.â€
The star of Heathers, Girl Interrupted and Black Swan â€“ an actress who has been reductively if accurately described as â€œthe poster girl for the 1990sâ€ â€“ has been telling me about â€œthis weird thing I do if I have to get emotional in a film. It always works.â€ She doesnâ€™t just want me to take her word for it; she wants me to try it. Which I do because this is Los Angeles and nobody would bat an eyelid if you were to assume the lotus pose in the middle of a bar and start chanting, â€œOm shanti, shanti.â€ But also, simply, because Ryder wants me do it.
Something about the actress draws you in from the outset, making you want to befriend and protect her â€“ both uncomfortable sensations for an interviewer. She talks in open-ended sentences, dipping in and out of whispers and veering off on tangents.
