Winona Ryder Chats About Her New Netflix sci-fi thriller 'Stranger Things' - Lioness Magazine

One of our favorite childhood superstars is back. Winona Ryder graces the cover of NYLON’s annual September fashion issue. The actress, model, and fashion icon talks about her new role in the Netflix sci-fi thriller “Stranger Things” and reflects on 20 plus years in the spotlight and her Hollywood career.

Check out some of the interview highlights:

Winona Ryder’s thoughts on being a goth icon:

“I feel kind of proud, I guess, but I can’t take full credit,” she says. “It’s flattering to me. It was a long time ago, but I’ve always felt sort of attached to that time [’90s goth]. I was listening to The Cure’s ‘Pictures of You’ because I have these old mixtapes that I don’t know what to do with—I’m like, ‘How do I transfer them?’ I still have a tape deck.”

On tricks of the trade:

Laying her hands on her lap, palms up and open: “If you put your hands up, you feel vulnerable. It’s the little things. I learned that from Jennifer Jason Leigh when I was just starting out.”

On being drawn to different periods of history:

“I think actors, on some weird level, feel like displaced souls,” she says. “I have a lot of conversations about this, and part of it just may be from steeping ourselves in the history of film and the things we’re drawn to, like period pieces.”
