The Very Private Lives of Winona Ryder


My favourite ever celebrity, Winona Ryder, is on the cover of UK Elle this month. The 37-year-old is looking as pixie-ish as ever in a tulle Dolce & Gabanna corset. Inside she is interviewed by Rebecca Miller, who directs her in the forthcoming film The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. I read the book (Miller first wrote TPLOPL as a novel and subsequently adapted and directed it for the big screen) on a flight recently and whilst I could recognise some of its limitations - the pretty ridiculous ending being a major one - I thought that Miller captured the difficult mother-daughter relationship perfectly and I’m really looking forward to the Blake Lively/Robin Wright Penn/Julianne Moore/Winona movie. Unfortunately though Miller fails to capture any essence of Winona in her interview but you get the feeling that this may have something to do with Winona’s reticence. In her editor’s letter, Lorraine Candy says “There is so much Winona does not want to talk about” and boy do you get that impression in the interview. LE
