Ryder slims down for Weaver

NEW YORK (AP) — Winona Ryder on a diet?

The petite actress is working out six hours a day to play an android opposite Sigourney Weaver in “Alien: Resurrection,” due out next summer.

And the star of “Little Women” and the upcoming “The Crucible” is being told to eat healthy so she can build muscle.

“What scares me is when they say that I’m going to have to eat differently, because I like to eat,” Ryder says in the Sept. 20 issue of Entertainment Weekly. “I’m skinny and I should be able to eat.”

Ryder said Twentieth Century Fox could provide her with some incentive to exercise.

“They should start paying me more now — this is harder work,” she said.
