Winona Ryder recently made a rare statement about her past relationship with Johnny Depp during her recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar. The actress shared how she went through a rough time after she split from Depp to whom she was engaged in the early 1990s following a whirlwind romance. Edward Scissorhands’ co-stars first met in 1989 and soon began dating, eventually breaking up in 1993.
In her recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the Weird stuff star described her breakup phase with Depp as “Girl, Interrupted real life”, referring to her 1999 film that dealt with mental health issues. About going through a rough time at the time, she said: “I remember playing this character who ends up being tortured in a Chilean prison. [in the 1994 drama The House of the Spirits]† I would look at these fake bruises and cuts on my face [from the shoot], and I would struggle to see myself as this little girl. “Would you treat this girl the way you treat yourself?” I remember looking at myself and saying, “I’m doing this to myself inside.” Because I just wasn’t taking care of myself.”
The actress revealed how it was a very private time of her life that she didn’t talk about. Previously, Ryder had made a comment about Depp in 2016 when she told Time magazine that her experience was very different from what she heard about Amber Heard’s allegations† She described Depp as someone who was “a really good, loving, caring man” when they were together.
