Our gallery was updated with screencaptures of Winona’s latest work, Experimenter, that was released on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital last January 5. The film, directed by Michael Almereyda, stars Peter Saarsgard as the social psychologist Stanley Milgram, which in 1961 conducted the “obedience experiments” at Yale University. The experiments observed the responses of ordinary people asked to send harmful electrical shocks to a stranger. Despite pleadings from the person they were shocking, 65 percent of subjects obeyed commands from a lab-coated authority figure to deliver potentially fatal currents. Winona plays Sasha Menkin Milgram, his wife.
Winona promoted the film on Sundance Festival, on San Francisco Festival and on New York Film Festival, before being released in October. Experimenter was high rated at Rotten Tomatoes score with 88% Fresh.
The video for the Velvet Noir Volume Mascara Winona did to Marc Jacobs Beauty was released and you can watch it below:

Winona Ryder is, again, the face of a Marc Jacobs campaign and the sneak peek was shared on the fashion designer’s Instagram earlier today. He also shared another moments as the shoot they did together to Harpers Bazaar in 2011 or when she attended his fashion show in 2005. Check the new image below:
It is with great pride (and pleasure) that I 'leak' this image from our upcoming 2016 MARC JACOBS BEAUTY campaign. Photographed here by David Sims and styled by Katie @kegrand, it stars my dear friend (of over two and a half decades), the stunningly beautiful and extraordinarily talented, Winona Ryder. Mesmerized by this image and her look- created by Diane @diane.kendal (using our fine liner eye crayon, velvet noir mascara and new nudes lipstick) and hair by Guido @guidopalau I am reminded of one of my all time favorite films: The Last Year at Marienbad. The flawless cool, elegant and timeless chic of actress Delphine Seyrig has long been a reference of mine. The force of the surreal calm, and painstaking fetishistic polish of this film and its heroine are truly 'ON FLEEK' and continues to inspire me to date. No one I know could exude the adjectives I've listed as perfectly as Winona does… She does not model the look she gets into the role- and exudes it! A brilliant mind, talent, and physical beauty like no other, I am delighted to share this image of Winona with my IG fans and followers today. I'll follow this post with a few more MJ/WR images from our past- To see more of the campaign, stay tuned! #4everwinona #marcbeauty
A little late, been away the whole day, but it still time to celebrate. Happy 44th birthday, Winona!
I was going to create a graphic, but this post from Perez Hilton on his Instagram is just the best. Winona Forever!
Now in her 40s, Winona Ryder is finally getting what she wants. “I feel like only recently I’ve hit a point where I’m actually old enough to play my age, which is a tremendous relief,” says Ryder when we sat down at the Crosby Street Hotel last Tuesday. An icon of 90s culture, Ryder became the decade’s go-to “waifish ingenue” with films like Reality Bites, Heathers, and Girl, Interrupted but has moved beyond that in her career, and is now getting to take on the more mature roles she’s always wanted to play. With her latest film, Michael Almereyda’s Experimenter, Ryder portrays Sasha Milgram, the wife of controversial social psychologist Stanley Milgram, whose obedience experiments shocked the 1960s. Starring opposite a compelling Peter Saarsgard, Ryder delivers a delicate yet captivating performance as the woman who was not only his partner, but his emotional anchor. Breaking down the barriers between memory and reality, Almereyda brings his imaginative and intelligent touch to the story of Milgram’s work, crafting a character portrait in the way only he can.
With Experimenter out in theaters this Friday, we sat down with Ryder to chat more about working with Almereyda, the female characters she admires, and re-teaming with Tim Burton for Beetlejuice.
I’m such a fan of Michael’s films. It’s the way he chooses to approach universally known material and make it totally his own that’s so interesting—whether it’s Stanley Milgram or Hamlet.
Me too! He’s actually someone I’ve known since I was 16.
How did you meet him then?
I met him at the Independent Spirit Awards the year Down by Law was there.
