Winona Ryder‘s 1993 separate from Johnny Depp left her reeling.
That combined with the pressure of Hollywood left her in what she informed Harper EXCHANGE was her “Girl, Interrupted reality”– a referral to her and Angelina Jolie‘s flick about a psychiatric medical facility.
The starlet looked for aid, sharing that “an incredible therapist” recommended she picture respecting a more youthful type of herself.
At the time, she was starring in the drama The House of the Spirits “I remember, I was playing this character who ends up getting tortured in a Chilean prison,” she detailed. “I would look at these fake bruises and cuts on my face, and I would struggle to see myself as this little girl. ‘Would you be treating this girl like you’re treating yourself?’ I remember looking at myself and saying, ‘This is what I’m doing to myself inside.’ Because I just wasn’t taking care of myself.”
“I’ve never talked about it,” the 50- year-old continued. “There’s this part of me that’s very private. I have such, like, a place in my heart for those days. But for someone younger who grew up with social media, it’s hard to describe.”
