Washington: Winona Ryder’s return to fame has been nothing short of a miracle and the actress has now reflected on what it has been like finding fame for the second time in her life.
According to Conctactmusic.com, the 45-year-old actress feels that it is really overwhelming for her to find fame once again.
In a new interview with Marie Claire magazine, the ‘Stranger Things’ star said, “It’s so overwhelming. I don’t know what it’s like for really famous people. I keep hearing that people are dressing up like me [Joyce Byers]. I’m like, ‘What?'” she said about her first-ever television role.”
The 45 year old actress became a teen sensation back in the late ’80s, starring in a number of critically acclaimed films and Hollywood blockbusters, before a shoplifting arrest in 2001 put something of a spanner in the works.
The actress also admitted that it would have been difficult for her to start as an actor now.
“I’m grateful that I got to start at the time I did. As much as I love it, I don’t know if I would even have become an actor [if I was starting out now]. I wouldn’t know how to [handle it]. I do worry about the massive exposure at that age,” shared Ryder.
Ryder also revealed that she consulted her own mother about how to play her character of Joyce, and how to create a believable reaction to her son [Will] going missing and presumed dead.
“I said, ‘Mom, if every bit of logic is telling you your kid is gone, would you still [refuse to believe it]?’ And she said, ‘Absolutely.’ I said, ‘What if they show you a body?’ She said, ‘If you don’t see it happen, you don’t believe it’. It’s a weird, primal thing. But I may have gone too far: it seemed like every day I was crying or freaking out,” Ryder noted about her eventual portrayal of the character.
The second season of ‘Stranger Things’ starts October 22 on Netflix.
