Winona Ryder is on current anniversary issue of Interview Magazine, in an interview done by the editor in chief Stephen Moallen. I didn’t had the chance to get the magazine in hands, but here’s the interview so you can read it.
Thanks for Lunis for the heads up.
How Winona Ryder overcame junior high school bullies, teenage rebellion, the controversy surronding Heathers, overwhelming stardom, tabloid harassment, her breakup with Johnny Depp, suffocating mega-fame, wearing a corset, gen x angst, the Hollywood machine, J.D. Salinger’s cone of silence, the late ’90’s malaise, her fear of series television, and that time she got arrested and found a way to be free at last.
There’s here at CinemaBlend a interview with the autors of The Ten, Ken Marino and David Wain.
(…) David Wain and Ken Marino have been working together for over fifteen years, and it shows. Interviewed together, the two play off each other both for their own entertainment and for the sake of the poor journalists assigned to pick their brains. Wain may respond to a question with a perfect deadpan that cracks up the room, but Marino: will follow up with an actual answerâ€”just as funny, as course. The two co-wrote The Ten, a feature film consisting of ten shorts, each based on one of the Ten Commandments. Among the highlights, which are also important for understanding this interview: a man becomes a celebrity after becoming wedged in the ground during a skydiving accident, causing his distraught fiancee to leave him, take up with a news anchor, then eventually leave the anchor for a ventriloquistâ€™s dummy. Two neighbors try to one-up each other by buying dozens of CAT scan machines. A doctor goes to jail for killing a patientâ€”but, as he insists, â€œit was a goof!â€ A white woman explains to her black sons that their real father is, in fact, Arnold Schwarzeneggerâ€”and hires an Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonator to give them a feel for their real father. A man ditches church each Sunday to hang out in his house, naked, with dozens of other naked men, all dancing to Roberta Flack. And of course, at the end, all the characters of the film sing onstage together, while wearing sparkly costumes. (…)

WRNC interviews director David Wain
‘Winona’s a genius comic actress and does stuff in this movie that we’ve never seen from her before. She’s totally fearless’.
So, first, you’re bound to face the ‘no-spoilers-but-tell-us-a-lot’ question. What is “The Ten” about basically?
Basically, it’s ten stories, each inspired by one of the Ten Commandments. Characters overlap and interweave. Winona’s a main character in two of them.
