Biography RIDER Winona (Winona Laura Ryder Horowitz)
Winona Ryder was born on October 29, 1971. Real name - Winona Laura Horowitz. Almost all her life is full of strange, and not very pleasant events and adventures.
Well, let's say, hard to find a man who gave the name of the settlement, but her parents named Winona (Uinonoy) in honor of the city in Minnesota, where she was born.
Her parents are reputed large original. His father, Michael Horowitz, a writer and publisher, along with her mother Cindy, who is also involved in literature and the New York Times, were convinced hippies. So they protested against the then existing morals and generally accepted norms of behavior of middle-class U.S.. In the circle of close friends of her parents was part of the famous beatnik poet Allen Ginsberg, praises the idea of a hippie, and Timothy Leary (famous apologist and a user of LSD) has become the godfather of Uinony. In this mother practiced Buddhism, and his father was an ardent atheist.
Despite such unusual conditions that prevailed in the family, the girl instilled a love of literature and art. Since childhood, her favorite book was Dzh.D.Selindzhera novel 'The Catcher in the Rye', which, it claimed, she read 50 times, and always carries with him on trips.
. When Uinone 7 years old, her parents have organized an unusual district, covers an area of 120 hectares near the town of Elk, in Northern California
. Next to them another seven families and ... herd of horses. In the commune had no electricity, but because the children wanted to watch a movie, the mother Uinony equipped theater in the barn and show them the old classic films, which ultimately determine the future of her daughter. The municipality did not last long, a year later she collapsed, and the family Uinony which parents affectionately called Nonie, returned to civilization, having moved in 1982 to the provincial and 'sleepy' town.
. It would seem, for the 11-year-old girl began life typical child
. But ...
- All my childhood I grew up in a society of drug addicts, homosexuals and feminists - recalls Nonie. - I was surrounded by an atmosphere of free love - say, no one is ashamed to go naked. However, I finally had my own room in this house, and I went to normal school.
Peers Uinonu disliked: they did not like her short hair, love for the boy's clothes, they do not understand her family life. The girls threw Noni rotten apples, and three boys, catching her on the street, once beat baby so that she went to hospital with a brain injury and a broken rib.
. The parents filed a complaint in court, the case finally ended with the school director told them to pick up the girl: she, they say, a bad influence on students
. As a result Uinona received education at home, in 1989 as an external student graduated from the school, and parents enrolled her in an acting studio in San Francisco. Obviously, she somehow attracted producers, are looking for young talent, if she is soon invited to try on a small role in a feature film.
- I remember: the cameras, and I was paralyzed horror. Words completely flew out of my head. It was six or seven takes, and I just stood in silence, - says Uinona. - The day was not successful in all respects - in addition to everything I started having monthly ...
Audition is not passed, but it drew the attention of representatives of the agency Triad Artists, the actors involved in the identification. And when Uinone turned 15 years old, made her film debut in the film 'Lucas'. Uinona Laura Horowitz (this is the full name of the actress) took the pseudonym Uinona in honor of Mitch Ryder, Ryder, her father's favorite musician.
Then there was a lot of roles, but in all the films she was offered to play a strange teenage heroines. Due to the fragile exterior of directors did not see in it the actress that could act in a different Role. But, apparently, came her finest hour - by Noni appeared to demonstrate their talents, when the famous director Francis Ford Coppola asked her to withdraw in the third part of 'The Godfather'. However, the young actress ... refused! According to one version - because of an annoying cold, on the other, more plausible and similar to Uinonu - in connection with the fact that 'very tired' and could not devote the whole picture.
. This was understandable: this time she had already been removed in five films that are not all adults on the shoulder.
. Elegant, refined, delicate, with transparent skin and big dark and expressive eyes, Uinona was more like a child, but it was a real woman, and saw that it Coppola
. And not only he! In 1992, Noni got the role of woman in the sensational film 'Dracula', removed from the novel by Bram Stoker. There were quite erotic scene involving the heroine Uinony and bloodthirsty Count Dracula.
For the role in subsequent Uinona reel of film nominated for Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, and then as the best actress of the year. This opportunity gave her film 'Little Women' on the real girl Polly Klaas, who in 1993 was kidnapped and brutally murdered in his home town Uinony Rider. By the way, then she Nonie invited as a reward of 200 thousand dollars to anyone who will give the police reliable information about the killer. She still supports her based Polly Klaas Foundation, as she was familiar with her and her family.
What: creative biography of the actress almost always been closely intertwined with her personal life. Example - shooting in the famous film 'Alien: Resurrection'. Uinone was eight years old when in 1979 she had seen the first film 'Alien'.
. She, along with his two brothers Dzhubalem and Yuri (it was named in honor of Yuri Gagarin) came for the premiere of the movie in San Francisco.
. - I was so seized the blockbuster that I persuaded the brothers to hide in the auditorium of the cinema to watch it again - recalls Uinona.
. Most girl liked Sigourney Weaver, who played Officer Ellen Ripley.
. - I had never seen a woman so well knew how to fight with his hands and feet - says Uinona
. - She made me the impression that even then I knew: I want to be an actress - such as superheroine, as Ripley.
And now the dream becomes a reality. She was invited to appear in science-fiction action movie 'Alien: Resurrection', together with the most legendary Sigourney Weaver. Uinona the first time in my life, even without reading the script, set to work to avoid looking pale next to the already elderly Sigourney.
Despite his 50 kilograms of weight, they lose zhirok and build muscle. However, the actress was in despair, when, finally, looked the script and found out that she was the scene of diving under the water.
- When I was 12 years old, I was lost, - she says. - My friends and I ran away from school and went swimming in the sea. I faced a wave, I choked ...
Rescuers pulled a girl, but this time her pulse was palpated. She did artificial respiration, cardiac massage: a word, literally dragged from the world. Since Noni is afraid of water.
- Director advised me not to worry, because the underwater scene for me was to play understudy - continues Uinona. - But I dive in the end, had to itself.
She was given an instructor who helped the actress to cope with fear. In addition, a few inches from the camera on duty professional divers, ready at any moment to help ...
In such a charming woman, as Uinona, could not take place and turbulent personal life. To her beauty did not remain indifferent to such well-known representatives of the American bohemians, like actors Christian Slater and Daniel Day-Lewis, lead singer rock band Soul Asylum, David Pirner. Although short-term, but it was her affair with David Duchovny. There were even rumors that some time was a knight Uinony Richard Gere. However, the actress said that in real life she would not like to see next to a man who is almost twice her age.
Yet the first and true love Uinony was Johnny Depp, with whom he began dating in 1989. Their combined boundless love for rock music. In 1990, was engaged. But three years later the lovers parted, and Johnny Depp, who at the time of the birth of relations made himself a tattoo on his shoulder Winona Forever ( 'Uinona forever'), changed it to Wino Forever, which in Russian roughly means 'п-п¦п¦п¦яT forever'.
. After the break with Johnny Uinona fell into a deep depression
. They say it even for some time clouded mind. She began drinking, and was the case when, after another steep drink she fell asleep with a lit cigarette in his hand and miraculously woke up, when it began to smolder her bed. Then Uinona realized that to go out of depression. I voluntarily went to a psychiatric hospital.
- I was 19, and I was very, very tough year, - says Uinona. - I'm awfully tired at night could not sleep. Nerves were not to the devil, and therefore went to the clinic. It seemed to me that the doctors could give me some pills, so I quickly got rid of all that gravity. But then realized that the only one who can help me - is myself.
. Uinona stayed in a psychiatric hospital just five days, but this experience proved useful to her in his movie 'Girl, interrupted us', on which work has helped her emerge from a deep spiritual crisis.
. The film is based on real events, borrowed from a book written by his father Uinony - Michael Horowitz
. When the book came into the hands Uinony, she knew immediately that her character is close in spirit. It was about 19-year-old Susan Casey, who in the 60 years spent 18 months in the Boston Psychopathic Hospital. While working on the film into Uinona corresponded with Susan, played, and in the middle of filming, they even met.
. Uinona not only played a major role, but, having bought the rights to a book, became executive producer of the film, which was released last year.
. And soon she has a new holder - Hollywood actor 29-year-old Matt Damon
. A year later, they announced their engagement and bought an apartment. But recently the media reported that Matt has to take care of his partner on the last film - Penelope Cruz. Rumors confirmed: in late April, the actress broke up with Matt. However, many believe that the reason is not jealousy, but the fact that Damon Uinonu persuaded to invest in the company adventurer Dan Gyachetto known 'architect' of bubbles. As a result, Noni had lost $ 1 million, accounting for the company itself Damon and Ben Afflick, Leonardo DiCaprio and others deceived: for some data, Gyachetto 'shod' Hollywood stars for a total of $ 9 million.
. However, despite the financial loss, Uinona Ryder was not discouraged, riding his five hundred 'Mercedes' black and meets 28-year-old actor Mark Wahlberg, who last worked as a model for Calvin Klein underwear and advertised
. The actress, however, said that they have a purely friendship and no love for him she does not feel. However, reporters scandalous chronicle already launched another version: do Uinona really disappointed in the men changed sexual orientation and become a lesbian ...

|Winona I must say is one of my favorite actresses with a style and grace unmatched as of yet. I would love to know if she has any up and coming projects as I haven't seen anything new from her lately and I really miss seeing her where she belongs up on the silver screen. Sure she has had some problems but who doesn't, many times these problems cause one to reach deep inside and when they return the have become even more brilliant than ever.
All my love Winona.....
