This article is from the Winona Ryder FAQ, by C. Scott Duprey email@example.com with numerous contributions by others.
Born: Winona Laura Horowitz; October 29, 1971; in Winona, MN to
and Michael Horowitz.
Siblings: Sunyata (half-sister), Jubal (half-brother), Yuri (brother)
Height: 5 feet, 4 inches (162.5 centimetres)
Weight: 103 pounds (46.7 kilograms)
Eyes: Brown/Hazel. I've never actually seen Winona in person, but her
eyes sometimes appear to change color; I guess it depends on how she's
Hair: Brown. There's been some debate on this one. Someone posted to
alt.fan.winona-ryder that they read an article in which she said her
hair was blonde and dyed it because she thought she looked weird with
such pale skin and dark eyes and light hair. I read an interview
where Winona said her mother cut all of her hair off because it wasn't
her natural color anymore. In the photos accompanying the interview,
she appeared to have kind of brownish/dirty blondish hair; again, I
guess it depends on how she's lit. After the initial posting of this
FAQ, I received an e-mail from someone who says she's known Winona
since '84, and says brown. So brown it is.
Although born in Winona (she was named for the town), Winona grew up
in Petaluma, CA. Among her favorite authors are J.D. Salinger (The
Catcher in the Rye being her favorite book), Jane Austin and Charlotte
Bronte. Favorite musicians include Tom Waits and Soul Asylum (but it
remains to be seen how high up on her list they are since she recently
broke up with lead singer Dave Pirner). Winona says the first time
she was proud of her acting was in "The Age of Innocence", but of all
her films, "Heathers" remains her favorite; she mentions it in just
about every interview I've ever read, and has pestered "Heathers"
scribe Dan Waters to write a sequel for years.
