In an interview with David Harbour for Stranger Things 4, Winona Ryder had mentioned being rejected back in the 80s. She talked about how she didn’t have the look and people were telling her that she was not going to get cast. This received disbelieving looks from David and the interviewer. Understandable. Who wouldn’t adore the 80’s-90’s looks of the actress?
We’re pulling the evidence out because we are here to debunk some claims!
Iconic Veronica Sawyer
Have you seen that video where Winona says “Lick it up, baby. Lick it up.”? It’s from the teen dark comedy film Heathers where she plays Veronica Sawyer. She goes from becoming a part of the highschool’s popular clique to committing murders. A thing you should know is that it’s one end of a scale where Mean Girls is also situated on the other end.
With her voluminous hair, various blue outfits with shouldered blazers, and sharp retorts, Winona as Veronica hooks the audience. In other words, who wouldn’t be charmed by her?
Winona in All-black
Who doesn’t love an all-black outfit, especially if you’re wearing one to an event?
The 90s continued some of the fashions of the 80s. Wearing baggy suits was carried over the decade and here we see Winona rocking in one. In addition to that, Veronica Sawyer would definitely approve of that shouldered blazer!
Oh, the leather jacket!
Hey, what will give off the simple but cool vibes? A band t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers for the win. Don’t you agree? Add the leather jacket and everyone’s gaze is on you.
So, you see Winona Ryder in one and you tell me she doesn’t have the look?
Apparently, one leather jacket photo isn’t enough. We have to have one more. Why? In short, it’s for the sole reason of admiring how beautiful she looks. With her hair swept back artfully from her face, she looks as dazzling as ever.
Isn’t she lovely?
Absolutely, she does. She really does look lovely and sweet in her pink sweater and heart-littered necklace. We’re sorry for the other films out there who don’t have her as their main protagonist.
She is beauty, she is grace…
Unquestionably, Winona Ryder continues to amaze us after all these years . Her beauty and talent will always be praised. Although the industry may have too many to say, we sure have all the evidence here. You’ve seen her as Joyce Byers in Stranger Things. She is beauty, she is grace, and she will definitely punch you in the face.
