Winona Ryder for Interview Magazine

Posted on May 06, 2013

And finally, for your Pretty of the Day, Miss Winona, serving up some grownup, sexy-time Lydia Deetz realness for Interview mag. Perhaps not the most fascinating of editorials, but it’s nice to see the gal can still work a lens like a pro. We’d love to see her really spread her wings in a full-blown fashion mag editorial.


Winona Ryder covers the May 2013 issue of Interview magazine in a Giorgio Armani dress photographed by Craig McDean.

    First of all – I love how dark her lips are in the first photo.
    Second – I wonder if even her own mother would recognize her in these photos.
    Third – the dress in the second photo? It looks like like it could be the best garbage bag dress ever in a Project Runway challenge.

    • Kristin McNamara

      Re: her dark lips… (and I’m adding commentary about her pallor)
      I almost feel like the cover should have the subtitle “with a vampire.”

    • Raanky

      All of that said, this is the best Wynona’s looked in YEARSSSSS!!!

    • marshmallowjane

      My sentiments exactly.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Definitely garbage bag!

    • Tatiana Luján

      She looks a bit like Michelle Dockery in this pictures.

  • MilaXX

    Nice to see her back and in full swing

  • hughman

    Well fuck me with a chainsaw. She looks awesome.

    • Rand Ortega

      Stealing that. JSYK. Mwah!

      • hughman

        It’s a quote from “Heathers”!

    • Sara L.

      Didn’t you forget a “gently”?

      • drdarke

        Yes, @hughman:disqus did, @disqus_m1ngJaxyNu:disqus – and it’s a very important part of the quote, too….

        • hughman

          Yeah, I’m real torn up about it too. Oh well.

          • drdarke

            Well, fuck me gently with a chainsaw, @hughman:disqus ….

    • Raanky

      “Lick it up, baby. Lick it up!”

    • zenobar


    • Sheri Z

      What’s your damage, Heather?

      • Ramon Figueroa

        This is all very. Our love is king. Let’s have a slushie. Give it up Heather. Bulimia is so 87.

    • BPlease

      Great påté. I’ve got to motor if I’m going to make it to Heather’s funeral on time.

    • Sara L.


    • Marta Lilly

      I don’t patronize bunny rabbits!

    • misstressofsylar

      she recently said in an interview that when Heathers is shown on cable she speaks her lines. she’s cool.

  • Unvacuous

    Photoshop aside, that first picture looks like it could have been taken in the nineties, she really hasn’t aged much….

    I’d swear the second was Michelle Dockery if you hadn’t told me it’s Winona.

  • AbbeyRogue

    I just love her. I don’t care HOW Gen X that makes me.

    • alyce1213

      I’m a baby boomer and I love her.

      • marshmallowjane

        Me, too.

    • Not applicable

      yep- she’s our generation I own it and I love love loves her!

    • Sarah

      Oh, well, we didn’t know we were “Gen X” until after they named us that, so nothing to be ashamed of..

  • carpediva

    She looks amazeballs. Hafta say, though (and this is coming from one of the least prude-y chicks ever), the O-face combined with not one, but BOTH hands all up in the good china is a bit too porntastic for me.

    • Kristin McNamara

      That was my gut reaction too. Did it really need to be so masturbatey?

      ETA: OH. MY. GOD. As I just typed out masturbatey, I thought of Bates from Downton Abbey… Do they ever call him MISTER Bates?! If so, howwwww did I not hear that almost-gem sooner?!??

      • IMNAngryLiberal

        i was once on a softball team called the Master Batters. After wearing a t-shirt with that on it for a season AND hearing every possible joke about it, I tend to pick right up on that sort of wordplay.

      • carpediva

        “Masturbatey.” So much this.

    • Lori

      I’m not generally prudish either, but I’m also not crazy about feeling like I accidentally interrupted a Wy having a little private time.

  • Patrick Cleary

    It’s really just a composite of Winona Ryder’s features vaguely assembled into a montage somewhat resembling a human being.

  • Sara L.

    I love her. She looks amazing.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    I’m glad she’s back. She looks very pretty, and not that much older than she did in Lucas. I wish we didn’t have to see her polishing the good china.

  • CommentsByKatie

    It’s a dark day here at T-Lo, with this micro black trend. What a cool editorial, going back to her Beetlejuice days so many years later. I’m also getting a little Satine from Moulin Rouge in her last shot. Beautiful!

  • filmcricket

    Wow, she looks great. And while they’ve clearly done a fair amount of ‘shopping on her face, I like that they left some of the definition in her arms instead of brushing them out to “Side of a Van” smoothness.

  • turtleemily

    “The return”? She’s been in movies lately… Although now I want to see if Heathers is still on Hulu.

  • Eskimoe

    Wino forever.

  • imspinningaround

    She still looks incredible. The cover shot is blowing me away.

    (Although I was sad not to see a single mention of my favorite Winona Ryder role in that interview…Jo March.)

  • jilly_d

    That shot with the gloves is giving me LIFE

  • Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

    I don’t care about Botox or Photoshop. This is a feast for the eye.
    She looks so beautiful and classy!!

  • Beverly Kozma

    Those eyes.

  • Sara Padilla

    I love the mesh gloves that came out in Oscar de La Renta show. I would love to wear those constantly, especially because my fingers are having a gigantic eczema attack right now.

  • Leah Elzinga

    41 years old. crazy pants.

  •árez/100002964685796 Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    She sure can give face like a pro. I’ve always loved her, and I’m glad she’s back and with her mojo back.

  • marlie

    She’s one of those ladystars who MUST have made a deal with the devil, because she hasn’t aged since Heathers. There’s nothing revolutionary about these photos themselves, but SHE looks AH-mazing.

  • andreawey

    hmmmm……she masturbates with gloves on?

    • BrooklynBomber

      Doesn’t everybody?

  • BrooklynBomber

    I don’t care if the Nina Ricci reminds people of a PR garbage bag challenge. I kind of love it.

    • demidaemon

      I don’t think there actually has been a specific garbage bag challenge, which I feel is a grave oversight. However, there have been garbage bag “outfits” in the past, and I think they are were results of the grocery store unconventional challenge.

      Onto the editorial. I agree. I think she is making all of these outfits sing.

  • m0r0

    Pretty girl, horrible actress. What is it she is returning to?

  • Christiane Truelove

    Holy moly, she’s going to be in “The Iceman”? I grew up in the town where Richard Kuklinski lived with his family – Dumont, NJ. Never knew his daughters or his son, though, because he sent them to the local Catholic school, St. Mary’s, where they were also parish members. We didn’t even know them through the church, my mom so intensely disliked the priest at St. Mary’s, we became parishioners at another church in the next town over.

  • Melizmatic

    WERK, ‘Veronica.’

  • Angelo

    A few years ago when I saw “Black Swan” my first reaction was “I’m just happy to see Winona in SOMETHING.” Same reaction to this.

  • Danielle Lisle

    Does this woman age? She’s flawless.

  • Jon

    She’s still so cool. Winona Forever.

  • Tamara Hogan

    Gawd, she’s gorgeous. Loved her in Star Trek!

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    She just looks AMAZING!! I’m going to have to hunt down this magazine, buy a copy, and give it to my boyfriend. It’ll be a surefire way to make sure he does whatever I want him to do for the rest of his life. “Okay, here’s what I want… and before you say ‘no’, let me just remind you – who gave you the Interview magazine with Winona Ryder on the cover?”

  • copperspot

    Why didn’t anyone wear that Nina Ricci dress at the Met Ball!?!

  • bellafigura1

    I dunno, it would be kinda cool to see her softened up, not playing to type.

  • Frank Lithium

    That’s quite a statement.

  • Frankie Carter

    I opened this while watching her in “Age of Innocence,” and it was quite a shock.

    She looks good!
