Winona attends Saban Clinic charity gala

Don’t you love when she pulls out a surprise appearance like that? Winona attended last night the Saban Community Clinic Dinner Gala in Los Angeles, in which she gave a speech. We have some pictures added in our gallery (sadly not many, since she seems to have skipped the red carpet). Enjoy!

Winona covers Marie Claire UK

Winona is featured on November issue of Marie Claire UK, with an amazing interview by Helena De Bertonado and a breathtaking photoshoot by Camilla Armbrust. Check it:

She’s the star of a Netflix phenomenon and she doesn’t even use social media, but when you’re as iconic as Winona Ryder, you live by your own rules. Here, the Stranger Things actress talks to Helena De Bertonado about settling down, recycling clothes and being the ultimate Hollywood rebel

Winona Ryder has only just started talking when we are interrupted by the seductively rasping voice of Leonard Cohen: ‘If you want a partner, take my hand…’ It’s the ringtone of her phone, set to ‘I’m Your Man’, the title track of Cohen’s legendary 1988 album. She giggles as she pulls it out of her jumbled bag to turn it off. On her phone case is an image of Patti Smith, whose music provided the soundtrack to much of Ryder’s adolescence.

Spending time with Ryder is like being in a time warp. The 80s – when she starred in a succession of cult movies, including Beetlejuice and Heathers – was her decade, even though she was only a teenager. When the late Terry Wogan interviewed her in 1991 – then 19 and engaged to her Edward Scissorhands’ co-star Johnny Depp – he introduced her as ‘the most exciting young actress in America today’.

Screen Captures: Author: The JT LeRoy Story

JT Leroy, for the uninitiated, was a super-hip trans teen novelist who CONQUERED the literary world in the early 2000s. Later, it came to light that JT was actually two women; writer Laura Albert who wrote under the pseudonym and Savannah Knoop who portrayed him for public appearances. LeRoy was the “author” of the novel which based a film Winona did in 2004, The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things, but before the movie was released, it emerged that “she” didn’t exist. You can read a lot more about such events in this Guardian article.

Earlier this year a documentary –Author: The J.T. Leroy Story – premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. It showed how Albert, a San Francisco punk rocker and phone sex operator, created created the character and managed to build such a celebrity following. Winona has a scene in the documentary since she was one of the artists that admired LeRoy and also did an appearance, in 2003, to a Public Theater event in their honor.

Check the documentary synopsis:

On January 9, 2006, The New York Times sent shockwaves through the literary world when it unmasked “it boy” wunderkind JT LeRoy, whose tough prose about a sordid childhood had captivated icons and luminaries internationally. It turned out LeRoy didn’t actually exist. He was the creative expression of 40-year-old San Francisco former phone-sex operator turned housewife, Laura Albert. Author: The JT LeRoy Story takes us down the infinitely fascinating rabbit hole of how Laura Albert—like a Cyrano de Bergerac on steroids—breathed not only words, but life, into her avatar for a decade. Albert’s epic and entertaining account plunges us into a glittery world of rock shows, fashion events, and the Cannes red carpet where LeRoy becomes a mysterious sensation. As she recounts this astonishing odyssey, Albert also reveals the intricate web spun by irrepressible creative forces within her. Her extended and layered JT LeRoy performance still infuriates many; but according to Albert, channeling her brilliant fiction through another identity was the only possible path to self-expression.

Winona Ryder Praises Ethan Hawke in ‘Born to Be Blue’: ‘He Is Unparalleled’

A day before presenting Hawke with a special tribute at 2016 Gotham Independent Film Awards, Winona attended a special screening of his film “Born to Be Blue” in New York. To Variety, she gushed about being proud of him, and about presenting him the award.

He is unparalleled in his vulnerability and intimacy as an actor, and it’s his performance in this film that is honestly, truly mind-blowing. It’s incredibly special to me because he means a lot to me as a friend and an actor. These are things that are often said about actors when they’re praising actors, but I really, honestly, from the bottom of my heart mean it. I just love him in a very, very deep way and I’m very excited for him.
