Winona Ryder Claims Johnny Depp’s Breakup Transformed ‘girl, Interrupted’ Into ‘Real Life’

Johnny Depp's Breakup

We will always hold a particular place in our hearts for the romance between Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder. The famous couple was more than simply Edward Scissorhands’ love interests. They also had actual relationships. In fact, to the general public, they seemed to be soul mates. But evidently, they didn’t get along as well when they were alone.

Johnny had already married and divorced makeup artist Lori Anne Allison before teaming up with Winona. He had also called off his engagements to Sherilyn Fenn from Twin Peaks and Jennifer Grey from Dirty Dancing. We have Johnny’s entire list of ex-girlfriends.

But let’s recreate Johnny and Winona’s four-year union from 1989 to 1993 for the time being.

In 1989, Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp first met.

When Great Balls of Fire premiered in 1989, Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder first met (in which Winona stars). They didn’t communicate that night but instead had their eyes locked in the lobby as he was grabbing a soda, as Johnny recalled to Rolling Stone in 1991. He was already in love with her. He admitted to the outlet, “I knew then.

A few months later, Winona was taken by a mutual acquaintance to Johnny’s hotel room at the Chateau Marmont, when things truly got hot. They swiftly started dating when he invited her out on a first date.

After dating for five months, Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder got engaged.

Winona and Johnny had a crush on one another. It took him five months to ask her to marry him.

Johnny stated, “I’m being completely honest with you when I tell that there has never been anything in my twenty-seven years that even comes close to the sensation I have with Winona. It resembles some strange, bounding atom or something. Even if you believe something to be true, it will feel different in your hands. The power of the truth is immense.

The couple’s fan base expanded after the publication of “Edward Scissorhands.”

It was just a matter of time before Johnny and Winona were paired up in a film given their status as one of Hollywood’s hottest couples. The 1990 film Edward Scissorhands starred Johnny as Edward and Winona as Kim, who was his love interest.

Early in the 1990s, the couple’s real-life love story simply kept growing. Even Johnny got “Winona Forever” tattooed on him.

When Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder split up in 1993, Winona experienced some difficult times.

In June 1993, Johnny and Winona decided to call off their engagement. It’s unknown why they broke up, although Johnny made a suggestion that perhaps too much pressure from the media was a factor in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. “Having a personal life in this community is quite difficult. Being so candid in my connection with Winona was a mistake, he admitted.

Johnny had the phrase “Wino Forever” added to his tattoo.

Winona discussed their partnership with in an interview. “After calling off my engagement to Johnny, I was terribly depressed. You have to keep in mind that I was only 19 at the time, so I was shamefully dramatic,” she remarked.

What enabled her to go past Johnny? “One night, I slept off while smoking and woke up to the flames. Since then, I haven’t gone there. You could say that was my “wake-up call,” she remarked.

Winona Ryder Claims Johnny Depp’s Breakup Transformed ‘girl, Interrupted’ Into ‘Real Life’

Winona Ryder is speaking out about her split with Johnny Depp and equating the circumstances to the events of her movie Girl, Interrupted.

The infamously quiet Stranger Things actress reflected on her highly publicized relationship with Depp, which started in 1989 and ended in 1993 after a brief engagement. She is the cover star of Harper’s BAZAAR’s digital issue for July 2022. In reference to the 1999 movie she co-starred in and executive produced about a woman’s time spent in a psychiatric hospital for problematic young women, Ryder remarked, “That was my Girl, Interrupted real life.”

Ryder told the publication that “a wonderful therapist” was responsible for teaching her how to take care of herself by picturing herself as a young child. In the 1994 movie The House of the Spirits, I played a character who ends up being tortured in a Chilean jail, Ryder said. “When I would look at the fake scrapes and bruises I had from filming, it was difficult for me to imagine myself as a young girl. Would you treat this girl the same way you treat yourself?”

Ryder carried on, I can still recall staring in the mirror and thinking, “This is what I’m doing to myself inside. I just wasn’t taking care of myself.” According to Ryder, Michelle Pfeiffer, her co-star in The Age of Innocence, helped her through that trying time. Ryder recalled Michelle saying, “This is going to pass,” among other things. “I was unable to hear it though. I’ve avoided discussing it. There’s this really intimate part of me.”

After Ryder’s memorable arrest for shoplifting at Saks Fifth Avenue in 2001, her privacy was strengthened when she took a break from Hollywood. I absolutely went back, Ryder admitted. “San Francisco was where I was. I was, however, not receiving any offers. I believe the break was pretty mutual. When you consider the early aughts, it is really interesting. It was a very painful period. There was a lot of negativity around… Then I recall that it was difficult to return to Los Angeles. And I wasn’t sure if that chapter of my life was coming to a close.”

Ryder has referred to her breakup with Depp as her “first true break up” and “first real heartbreak” in previous interviews, while Depp has asserted that the media frenzy was to blame for the breakup. In 1993, he told the Los Angeles Times, “It’s very difficult to have a personal life in this place. “I made a mistake by being so open about my relationship with Winona, but I reasoned that by being truthful, the curiosity monster would be vanquished. Instead, it fueled it and allowed individuals to believe they were a part of it.”
