Quint has a strange and unusual interview with Winona Ryder! We talk pets, Frankenweenie, Beetlejuice 2 and more!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I was quite excited to get a little bit of time with Winona Ryder when she came through Austin to premiere Frankenweenie at Fantastic Fest. I really didn’t know what to expect when I sat down with her, to be honest. I could see it play out a few different ways and the way it ended up happening was about the best case scenario for me as an interviewer. It’s a conversation. It’s not a professional, dry Q&A, but a real deal two people talking to each other conversation, which is becoming a bit of a rarity in these kinds of junket interview situations.
That having been said, I hope to God you guys find it interesting because we spend the first half of the interview just talking about our pets. I’m on exaggerating. But in that bit we do venture into some Edward Scissorhands stories, so it’s not all gushy animal lover stuff.
We do get to talk about Frankenweenie, her character Elsa van Helsing and even a bit about her thoughts on the current talk of Beetlejuice 2. I particularly like what she has to say about Lydia Deetz’s influence on her Frankenweenie character, her Alan Arkin dog story and what she’s asked to do by Beetlejuice fans.
Hope you enjoy the chat!
Quint: Did you hear about the dog theater?
Winona Ryder: No!
Quint: For the big premiere tonight they’re devoting one of the theaters showing the film to only dog owners with lapdogs, which have to be wearing dog tuxes.
Winona Ryder: Oh! That’s amazing. What if they, like, bark and stuff?
Quint: I guess that’s why they get their own theater.
Winona Ryder: I wonder how that’s gonna go. Do you have a pet?
Quint: I have a really bitchy cat.
Winona Ryder: My cat, Bianca is her name, was born the month that I was born and she lived to be 21, which is quite old for a cat. What’s interesting is my dad grew up in Brooklyn and he found this kitten when he was 11 and we had every generation, every daughter (from that cat.)
Bianca was kind of my cat. What’s so weird is when she passed away I became kind of allergic, but it’s psychosomatic, I think. It’s interesting how cats, including Bianca, know that they’re dying. She went into a cupboard… they kind of know. So, you have a cat, too?
Quint: I do and I’m kind of allergic, too.
Winona Ryder: Isn’t that weird?
Quint: I grew up a dog kid. I always wanted a dog and when I was around 14 or 15 we rescued a stray puppy and I got my wish. My mom was always the cat person. She loves cats. I like them, too, but not as much.
Winona Ryder: I remember on Edward Scissorhands we were shooting near Tampa, at a sort of golf resort. That neighborhood was being built and they let Tim come in and paint the houses and stuff. But I went a shopping mall one day and you know those pet stores? They’re awful. I saw this little puppy and I got it so I could get it out of there. I brought it back to the hotel and took care of him for a few days, but I just knew I couldn’t work and take care of him, so I gave it to a nice family.
But I’ll never forget that thing of seeing an animal suffering in a little, tiny inhumane… actually, the word wouldn’t be “inhumane.” It’d be “indogmane” or something (laughs).
I remember bringing it to the set and it was just too much. We named him Dude.
Quint: I actually named one of my mom’s cats Dude, believe it or not. And of the litter he ended up being the fattest cat in the world. He lived up to his name.
Winona Ryder: Bianca was very… when you said “bitchy…” (laughs) She was very regal and there was something dame-ish… She always looked down on people.
Quint: “Now it’s time for you to pet me. Now I’m finished with that.”
Winona Ryder: Exactly!
Quint: Yeah, that’s my cat.
Winona Ryder: They have personalities! Alan Arkin, actually, told me this story on Edward Scissorhands… he had just lost a good friend of his and he was just sitting outside and was really sad. His dog came up and… put your arm up (I comply)… he just came up and went (she pats the top of my hand a few times. Cue heart-flutters). He consoled him! He was like, “I swear to God, it knew.” He had never done that! To pat him twice on the hand and nod? Amazing!
Quint: Wanna hear something like that? I do like cats, but I was always a dog person. The same day I had to put my dog to sleep a little, tiny kitten came walking up to me outside my house.
Winona Ryder: Do you think it was… wow…
Quint: We actually tracked her back to a neighbor, who ended up being a redneck guy that told us he had a boy and a girl cat from a litter and just wanted the “Tom” and was going to dump the girl cat in the country. So, I told him I’d take her.
Winona Ryder: And you had that cat for a while?
Quint: Seven years now, I think.
Winona Ryder: Wow! So, did you like the film? I mean, I was really moved by the film.
Quint: Oh yeah. The animators did a fantastic job capturing Sparky… as a dog lover and ex-owner, they really nailed all the subtle dog-isms. They made him real, so I really connected with the central boy and his dog story.
Winona Ryder: I feel like it captured that… being that age. I didn’t lose any pet at that age, but it captured how attached we are to them. Bianca and Lavinia, her mom, were so a part of our family.
Quint: There’s a definite bond there. I’m an easy mark if a filmmaker gets that connection right and I think Tim and his team really nailed it.
Winona Ryder: Yeah. Remember Where the Red Fern Grows? Those books?
Winona Ryder: Those were great… but I’m sorry, I haven’t let you ask any questions!
Quint: (laughs) It’s no big deal. We should talk a little about Elsa. Obviously, she’s a young girl in the story, so was there any sort of mindset you had to put yourself in or a trick you did vocally to capture that in your performance?
Winona Ryder: I drew on my character from Beetlejuice a little bit. I imagined Lydia as an 8 year old. A little bit of a loner, a little shy, not the popular girl and not the class clown. If anything, Tim is a very expressive person, but sometimes not so verbal. We’ve always had this sort of telepathic… like, I always sort of know what he means.
He definitely wanted (the performance) to be smaller, but very real. I know people think of that character in Beetlejuice as very dry and cynical, but there’s a real innocence and purity (to her). That’s why she could see the ghosts. To this day that’s the movie I’m recognized most from.
The reason I think kids really respond to Tim’s work is there is that purity. With children, these characters… you know, there’s always this attitude that “Oh, they’re just kids. It’s all fun and silly,” but actually it can be just as painful as being an adult.
Quint: Well, you haven’t built up any defenses yet.
Winona Ryder: Yeah. It’s interesting to think of what Tim was like as a little boy. I also drew on that. I drew on my relationship with him. He really changed my life. He kind of gave me a career with Beetlejuice.
Quint: Before I go, I wanted to bring up all this current talk from both Tim and Michael Keaton about another Beetlejuice film. I’m not fishing for scoops or anything, but we’re in an age where a lot of the later sequels to movies we grew up loving haven’t lived up to our expectations. Indiana Jones 4, the Star Wars prequels, even Tron… Do you think a Beetlejuice sequel, with all the talent of the original behind it, would break away from that trend?
Winona Ryder: I don’t really know what’s going on. I know something is being written. I think I’m sort of old fashioned about not giving anything away, but there’s actually nothing for me to give away!
Quint: Sure. I just wanted to get your opinion on whether or not you see room in that world for a sequel. I personally think there could be a good story in there, especially considering just how great Michael is in that role.
Winona Ryder: I know, right? I would be really interested in that because it’s such an iconic movie. Again, it’s the movie little kids come up to me about and when I’m going through airport security they make me say “Beetlejuice” three times or I’ll miss my plane! (laughs) So, it is ingrained in us in a way. It would be very, very interesting to see. I just don’t know yet what the story is. Obviously it’s Michael and Tim’s film, their collaboration and vision and I was just so lucky enough to be cast in it. I like to think I brought something to it.
As I stood up to leave, I assured Ms. Ryder that she did indeed bring a lot of the movie, especially for most boys my age who ended up with teeny-tiny crushes on Lydia Deetz. I expected a laugh and instead got one of the most sincere “thank you’s” I’ve ever heard.
Ryder stressed that after making that movie she went back to high school and everybody thought she was a freak or weirdo because of Lydia and she caught a lot of hell for it, so it was vindicating to hear that a generation of nerds like myself (my words, not hers) really connected with the character.
I forgot to propose right then and there, but maybe next time. Hope you guys enjoyed the conversation as much as I did. We still have Martin Landau on the docket, so keep your eye peeled for that interview!

I'm so sick of sequels feeling obligated to use the "2". The sequel should be called, "Beatlejuice Beatlejuice". This would work especially well if it turns into a trilogy.

Are they edited down? Or do these stars only give you 5-10 minutes of their time? That's what it seems like. Some of these stars/director's I'd love to see a very lengthy in depth interview where you could get around to asking those little obscure questions that reveal a whole lot more than the major "Been asked a thousand times" questions where the interview subject gives the usual canned studio answer.

has no soul. So what if she's a little bit crazy? Isn't that part of the appeal of women in general?

Beetlejuice started it and Heathers sealed it. Love that girl.
Oct. 5, 2012, 9:06 p.m. CST
Always had a soft spot for Winona. She was incredible as the semi-antagonist of "Black Swan", and was the best thing about Ron Howards literal "Dilemma".

Yeah, not exactly what I expected.

Even though she's not quite as hot as she was in Lucas...I'd still drink her bath water.
Oct. 5, 2012, 9:41 p.m. CST
Funnily enough, I just rewatched Heathers a few days ago. Winona is still GORGEOUS and comes across as a really smart, sensitive lady. Will always love her work.
Oct. 5, 2012, 9:52 p.m. CST
Id love to see that more than one to BJ. That was some seriously fucked up shit. Ive no idea how they could bring back Christian Slater without going full blown supernatural but there are ways to do it. Heck make him a part of her psyche.

I for one, would have a hard time choosing between Winona Ryder or Natalie Portman, to warm my bed...
yeah, as if that would ever happen...but a man can dream, right? In all seriousness, I think Winona is probably more wild and crazy in the bedroom, and would give most of us a heart attack. Nevertheless, Natalie has that quintessential statuesque beauty (not that Winona is any slouch), which puts her up there with Grace Kelly. However, just from seeing "live" interviews, I find Winona much more interesting and down to earth, versus Natalie, who seems like she is made of ice. So, IMHO, Winona 1, Natalie 0.
Oct. 5, 2012, 11:43 p.m. CST
She was in so many seminal films from my childhood - Lucas, Beetlejuice, Heathers. Plus, she was great and underrated in Girl, Interrupted.
Oct. 5, 2012, 11:51 p.m. CST
Loved her in Dracula.
Oct. 6, 2012, 12:59 a.m. CST
This chick has never been cute and never will be cute. Only babe uglier than her on this whole planet is Maggie Gyllenhaal
Oct. 6, 2012, 6:10 a.m. CST
If Winona or Maggie spread their legs in front of you, you'd dive right in and we all know it. Troll.
Oct. 6, 2012, 6:23 a.m. CST
when I’m going through airport security they make me say “Beetlejuice” three times or I’ll miss my plane!
Heheheheh, that was funny, wasn´t it? Well, I found it funny, bite me! I love Winona. Winona Forever!

Quint, you gotta follow up on that.
Oct. 6, 2012, 9:24 a.m. CST
since Beetlejuice. She seems like a really charming and warm person. Surprisingly, I actually loved her more in Alien Resurrection, not her acting, but just her looks in it. For me, she's up there with Portman. Kate Winslett too.
Oct. 6, 2012, 10:06 a.m. CST
Oct. 6, 2012, 10:23 a.m. CST
She's crazy hot. Oh and Quint, TRON Legacy may not have lived up to your expectations, but it I think it was great.
Oct. 6, 2012, 10:45 a.m. CST
Did she stuff it in her purse?
Oct. 6, 2012, 10:46 a.m. CST
awww she touched your hand for one second. first mary elizabeth winstead, then mila kunis and now winona...
...you are such a dog Quint.
Oct. 6, 2012, 12:58 p.m. CST
And Winona ticks all my boxes! Winona Forever!
Oct. 6, 2012, 1:05 p.m. CST
and I'd love to be holdin Winona!
Oct. 6, 2012, 1:38 p.m. CST
That's it. No plot, no story, no dialogue (apart from the odd grunt). Just Winona and Christina, rolling around in that jam. For an hour and a half. Box office gold, in my opinion...

Oct. 6, 2012, 3:32 p.m. CST
Ever since Heathers, I've adored that girl. Though I do wish she'd grow her hair out more often. (Not a fan of the pixie Emma Watson type look..) But she's always been a great actress, who's been forever underrated. After seeing her in Age Of Innocence I kept wishing Martin Scorcese had made the House of Mirth and cast her as Lily Bart. (Instead Gillian Anderson got that role, when a film was eventually made, which was a spectacular bit of miscasting..) I also always wondered what she REALLY thought of Francis Ford Coppola's version of Dracula given that it was one of her favourite books, and his take on it was most definitely not Bram Stokers, despite the title. Don't know why he felt the need to try and turn that into Beauty and The Beast. Really didn't work.. I wish Winona would get better roles. As much as I may like Natalie Portman, she can't hold a candle to Winona, who would be able to outact her in any film, if she was given the chance..

I can't really explain it but the big brown eyes and big boobs probably have a lot to do with it.

I really hope this works. I think the story would need to be Lydia herself dies and needs help from Beetlejuice to protect her own kooky daughter from her father or something as she can't. Cue lots of "can't escape from the ex" gags from Keaton and have their dynamic like a real ex married couple, bickering and one-upping each other to the teen. I just get images of Winona going to that Welfare system looking for The Maitlands only to find a portly, disgruntled BJ who had to join "the system" to overcome his "little head problem".
Oct. 6, 2012, 5:28 p.m. CST
It starts with pinhead Beetlejuice's ticket number finally being called and BOOM! we're back in business. Come on, Tim. What else you got to do with your time, eh?
Oct. 6, 2012, 5:29 p.m. CST
Big eyes, granted...but big boobs? Winona? Petite is the charm, son - and more than a mouthful is wasted...
Oct. 6, 2012, 5:40 p.m. CST
Id hate to awaken to some chick looking at me like that.
Oct. 6, 2012, 5:46 p.m. CST
guaranteed five fingered discount. Either that or watch her fire ping pong balls outta her pussy.
Oct. 6, 2012, 6:03 p.m. CST
She has, from what I've deduced over years of research, C-cups...which on a tiny girl such as my Winona, that would qualify as big.

Winona said as she pulled at the satin string nestled between her firm white ass cheeks; "I mean...like, that Jam is really sticky." The director walked over, muscles rippling from his sleeveless shirt; "Don't worry Wino" cooed the winner of MTV's coveted 'Casting Couch' award, Michael Bay, "...this is an action shoot...you'll look fabulous, and it lends authenticity to the scene. Christina, am I right?" Christina Ricci took a last drag on her Virginia Slim, and slithered up next to the man who single handed banished Megan Fox to Lifetime afternoon specials. Christina looked hard at her costar, her reduced but still ample breasts heaving and almost totally exposed under the small black triangles that covered her obviously hard nipples; licking her ruby red lips she slinked over to Ryder, whose large dark eyes widened at Christina's approach. Winona closed her eyes as Ricci's small hands caressed her tussled black locks, fingers running through her hair as her free hand wrapped around Ryders slim waist, she could feel the Ricci's hard nipple pressing into the soft flesh of her exposed back. Sweety...relax..." Christina hissed into Winona's ear, her lips brushing Ryders earlobe as she leaned closer, her hand moving slowly up Winona's torso, "...just go with it...it comes natural to us; you'll see...once we are in that sweet jam, pressed tight, licking that sticky sauce off of each other....you'll forget all about these silly outfits". Christina traced Winona's ear with her slick hot tongue as her hand finally move up cupping RYders own ample bosom, Winonas lips parted uncontrollably, gasping a deep breath that caused her chest to heave such her breast popped free from her bikini top as Christina moved her towards the vat of heated Strawberry Jam. "Roll those Cameras you fuckers" Bellowed Bay, "...Shit this good can't be edited in during Post" Credit to "biggusdickus"

if you asked her about the persistant rumors she's a huge crazy nympho, and then asked her to unveil her tremendous hide-a-rack. I don't care if she is nuts, they'd need a crowbar to get me off of her if she gave me a thumbs up.
Oct. 6, 2012, 10:04 p.m. CST

I can't help but gush. Screw it. I don't care. So many outstanding performances. How about A Scanner Darkly? No one mentions that role much. She's great in damn near everything. I think my personal favorite is Bram Stoker's Dracula by Coppola. And yes, I loved her in Alien Resurrection.
Oct. 7, 2012, 4:15 a.m. CST
Guys, this Talkback is going to be ran like a set with Winona on it. She CRANKY. She's TIRED. Keep it to inside voices. Keep it down. Sorry love. Won't happen again. Kisses. ;)

Winona has an appealing voice. I worked with this girl who was not exactly hot but had the exact voice of Winona Ryder and it made her attractive to me.
Conversely I've spent much of this year dating a girl who is really beautiful but has the ugliest voice. Regardless of content or style, talking to her is stressful based on the harsh tone and inappropriate loudness of her speaking voice. Thing is when we fuck she puts on this girly voice and I am like yeah that's the stuff.
Oct. 7, 2012, 7:51 a.m. CST
I remember Adam Sandler poking her in the boobs on the MTV Movie Awards in 2001 or 2002. They were definitely C-cups at that point
I also still remember this poster of Winona that these guys at university had in 1995. I spent this whole evening staring at it once. Black and white, sparkly dress.. you guys know the one.
Oct. 7, 2012, 9:29 a.m. CST
Genius, sir, sheer genius!
Oct. 7, 2012, 9:47 a.m. CST
Lydia was pretty much my benchmark for girls when I was a teen. I loved the dark quiet types. She still looks amazing. Dang, she's gotta be forty now, right? Her poise, fragile stature reminds me of Audrey Hepburn.
Oct. 7, 2012, 9:48 a.m. CST
...along with that of Jennifer Connelly, ought to be considered a crime against humanity. The surgeons who performed such desecration should be made to stand trial...
Oct. 7, 2012, 11:50 a.m. CST
I think they're fucking nuts; both of them. Think about it, they've both dated basically every fucking guy in Hollywood over the last 20 years and with the exception of the guy Barrymore's with now, who I think she married, every guy has shitcanned them both famously. Yeah, Ryder's hot, but I'll bet she's bat-shit looney tunes, too.
Oct. 7, 2012, 11:50 a.m. CST
Lol, I love how she kept bringing up Edward Scissorhands & Beetlejuice to politely get on topic, yet Quint wouldn't fucking stop talking about dogs & cats.

Oct. 7, 2012, 11:52 a.m. CST
...with her in Beetlejuice. I think she was maybe the first time I actually felt a whole lot of something for a female character. Those of you who say you don't find her attractive?

@Red The reason why they add the 2 to most sequels is because it's easier for the studio to market the film.
Basically the movie studios thinks the audience is dumb and they'll get confused and not know it's supposed to be sequel.

Oct. 7, 2012, 7:36 p.m. CST
It's not so much the use of 2 that bugs me - its when they try to get clever and fail e.g. 2 fast 2 Furious
it just comes off as painfully lame. but i guess in this era...when you have people actually using "ur" in place of "you are" (really? you take so much longer to type it out properly?)...it can't be helped. I swear to god, half of the internet couldn't pass a 3rd grade spelling bee. Fuck. I've actually seen people on youtube use "thurow" in place of "thorough". I mean...a typo here or there is normal, but some of these people ACTUALLY THINK that's how you spell it, or they guess (horribly) because they don't know. My fucking Russian is better than their English...and I don't speak Russian other than "no". So yeah. I suppose they know who they're marketing to. The fucking tools who say "u no" instead of "you know"....yeah. Them.

So much that I can't be my usual vulgar self. I simply adore her and would never dis her with cheap masturbations jokes or crude comments about how much she needs a specific part of my anatomy inside her. I would love to see her in more films and/or TV. I LOVE YOU WINONA!!!

She will always be one of my favorite actresses. I developed a huge crush on her when I saw Heathers back when it originally came out in theaters.

my mom immediately asked if I named her after Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice, due to the sheer amount of times I watched that movie on cable as a child.

She's in that class of woman who are not 'carnal hot', but classically beautiful, like make you want to grow long Fabio hair, take her on a horseback ride on the beach and write poetry in Italian to.

"Tiny crush" on Winona? HUGE CRUSH, and it ain't never gonna go away. She's our Audrey Hepburn. Too beautiful for words.
Wish she was on-screen more these days.

by ricarleite4 - Is there something wrong with a person like you? Really -what is it that produces such venom and hate for no reason? You talk like these actions of another person were done to you-personally. What is it ?

I was so disappointed when I heard that she is a filthy criminal. She's scum.

I still love this woman. She never fit that Hollywood mold, and that's a good thing. Michael Shannon said recently that he felt very protective of her and I know exactly what he means.

And hopefully she will have a similar resurgence as Marisa Tomei, with or without the nudity. shes one of a kind, and a sweetheart to boot. And kudos to to all you aicn talkbackers for recognizing it. pleasantly surprised with the positive vibe in here

And yes, I would gladly shoehorn her into whatever role she was willing to play in a Marvel movie. Seriously, I could give a fuck that she doesnt "look" the part. Im willing to bet Joss has as big a crush as the rest of us, so make it happen man!!

"Indiana Jones 4 lived up to mine and most people's expectations. And the same is true for Revenge of the Sith".. thanks for the morning laugh...

That's how much I adore Ms. Ryder.

...surprising, considering the tenor of most commentary on this site. Like so many millions of young men, 20 years ago I was entirely convinced Winona Ryder was the world's most perfect female. My opinion has not altered. I just wish she was in more films.
