10Winona RyderWinona Ryder is an American actress. One of the most profitable and iconic 1990s actresses, she made her film debut in the 1986 film Lucas.

She is my favorite actress, since I was a kid I have 8 of her movies. When love is not enough was great too. I also have 2 of her biographies, an interview book as well. I have gotten her movies as gifts for friends and nieces as well. I own mermaids, boys, great balls of fire, reality bites, little women, last word, autumn in ny and edward scissorhands. It's a shame that she doesn't take better care of her health, I love how she can act with her eyes. I think is better suited for drama than comedy.

She is the best! Love her very much. Since watching her in Edward Scissorhands, I started falling in love with her. I keep watching her movies, from Reality Bites, Mermaids, Beetlejuice, Heathers, Alien: Resurrection, Girl Interrupted to her newest T.V. shows, Stranger Things. Can't wait for her next project!

Different from the other actresses

Mermaids, edward scissorhands, night on earth, dracula, reality bites, the age of innocence, little women, girl interrupted
