Winona Ryder covers Harper’s Bazaar’s digital cover
Winona forever! Stranger Things star Winona Ryder appears on the new digital cover of Harper’s Bazaar and opens up to Heather Havrilesky about the downsides of celebrity. The 50-year-old actress addresses a more turbulent time in her life, when she was one of the most famous names in the world in the ’90s and early ’00s. “I just wasn’t taking care of myself,” she said, adding that co-star Michelle Pfeiffer once said: “This is going to pass,” as she grappled with living life in the public eye. “I’ve never talked about it,” Ryder said in the interview. “There’s this part of me that’s very private. I have such, like, a place in my heart for those days. But for someone younger who grew up with social media, it’s hard to describe.” After the infamous incident where she was arrested for shoplifting in Beverly Hills after being overprescribed painkillers, she reflected: “I definitely retreated. I was in San Francisco. But I also wasn’t getting offers. I think it was a very mutual break…It’s so interesting when you look at the early aughts. It was a kind of cruel time. There was a lot of meanness out there.” Living through it has ultimately helped her advise her younger co-stars though. Stranger Things co-creator Ross Duffer said of her, “She’s talked to the kids about what celebrity is like and how the press can be and the anxiety and confusion that comes along with celebrity. I think she’s really helped them. I know she’s specifically helped Millie [Bobby Brown] a lot to work through that. And that’s something that no one else can help with, really, because so few people have experienced it. It’s not something I understand. It’s not something that, you know, even a parent would understand.” Read the full feature, and see the editorial styled by Caroline Newell, here.
Dakota Johnson graces Vanity Fair
In a surprising revelation, Dakota Johnson reveals that vibrators make for effective facial massage tools when in a pitch. For her new cover story with Vanity Fair, the actress was profiled while getting ready for the Met Gala with her super stylist, Kate Young. The morning of the first Monday in May, Johnson says she used a sexual device from the company she joined as co-creative director, Maude, as a makeshift lymphatic drainage massager. “It’s not for your face but it’s good,” she said. “You showed me how to use it on my face,” Young chimed in too. The 32-year-old star also confirmed she always cuts her own bangs before public appearances, as a good luck charm of sorts.
