Vanity Fair did a round of interviews during the 2012 TIFF and here’s the one they did with Winona:
The Upcoming has published an interview with “The Iceman” cast at Venice festival. Here’s the highlights:
How was working on this movie and with these actors?
Working with Michael is very much â€œyou donâ€™t know whatâ€™s gonna happenâ€. So amazing and spontaneous. A sort of explosion you are not prepared for, how he grabs you. He is completely present. Quite wonderful and generous.
Winona, what did you like of this character? How are you choosing roles at this point of your career?
I was drawn to this story, itâ€™s a compelling and different type of role for me to play. I sort of had to approach it in a very different way than I usually approach roles. I could not do any research on the character that I played because everything that was available was involved with very graphic descriptions of his crimes, my character was very much in denial or unaware of what happened.

Just in time for Earth Day on Sunday, the fashion crowd went crunchy two nights ago at the charity concept store Treasure & Bond in Soho when Rogan Gregory and Scott MacKinlay Hahn of eco-fashion line Loomstate took over to debut their Loomstate 321 line.
Winona was there, and I’ve added a few pictures of the event. Sadly, mostly pictures are still tagged, and I’m working to get it in better quality for you.
She also gave a quick interview to site Fashionista, which you can read below:
The stunning actress seriously hasnâ€™t aged a day since Heathers (she recently modeled some H&M x Marni out in L.A.) and looked amazing in a Loomstate 321 tee under a fitted leather moto jacket. She seemed a bit discombobulatedâ€“first warmly greeting us, then asking for a moment (â€œI just need to fix my lipstickâ€) and later apologizing for being out of it because she â€œtook the redeye in.â€ We asked her to share the most earth friendly thing that she does and we think we kind of confused her.
â€œLet me think,â€ Ryder giggled. â€œMaybe you should pause it [gesturing to our recorder]. Iâ€™m trying to think of the greenest things that I do. I donâ€™t underâ€¦.You mean like in my own personal? So boring. For the line? What? Iâ€™m sorryâ€¦â€
We felt bad for flustering the jet-legged actress and backtracked to an easier question: How does she know Gregory and MacKinlay Hahn?
â€œIâ€™ve known them for a few years and Iâ€™m a huge fan of their designs, but also their deep commitment to the environment,â€ she slowly articulated. â€œAnd you know theyâ€™re doing what everybody should be doing and with sustainability and with keeping it organic and Iâ€™m just excited for them. Theyâ€™re great guys and the thing is so awesome. Such a great example and itâ€™s something that you can wear eight million ways and believe me I tried them all tonight. I speak from experience.â€
So taking the eight-dresses-in-one in mind, how many times would Ryder wear the design before she threw it in the wash, we asked?
â€œWell, I would have to double check with Scott because Iâ€™ve been schooled about laundry by them,â€ Ryder said. â€œI just used to do my laundry and I never thought about it. Then through them I really learned that you donâ€™t have to wash your jeans every [day]â€¦and itâ€™s actually better.â€
So there you have it: Stars, lazy with laundryâ€“just like us.
Winona: I wanna go to Australia so bad! Iâ€™ve never been!
Because Iâ€™ve almost done movies there but then for whatever reason theyâ€™ve fallen apart. Like, I was hoping on this movie weâ€™d get to go there but because of Vinceâ€™s baby we canâ€™t do a trip like that but I canâ€™t wait to go there. Iâ€™ve got a lot of friends from there
So why are there so many films these days starring chubby men and hot women?
(laughs) Ohâ€¦ I donâ€™t know. I feel like I would sound a bit sexist but I do think there is some truth that women fall in love with the person inside, someone whoâ€™s gentle. I think there are all different kinds of women and some women donâ€™t think this way but looks arenâ€™t as important to women as they are to most men. I donâ€™t know what the exact percentages are but Iâ€™m sure there are men who feel the same way, but Kevin James is a real charm and has a real sweetness about him that draws you in and so I can totally see Geneva [Ryderâ€™s character] being swept off her feet by this sort of mad scientist really sweet shy guy. I get it. I get it (laughs) Continue reading
