11 Winona Ryder Winona 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.

Welcome Home, Roxy Carmichael (1990), Edward Scissorhands (1990), Mermaids (1990), Night on Earth (1991), Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), The Age of Innocence (1993), The House of the Spirits (1993), Reality Bites (1994), Little Women (1994), How to Make an American Quilt (1995), Looking for Richard (1996), Boys (1996), The Crucible (1996), Alien: Resurrection (1997), Celebrity (1998), Girl, Interrupted (1999).

Really needs to be number one. Edward Scissorhands was Tim Burton's best movie, and she was great in it. Dracula, Reality Bites, Girl, Interrupted, Mermaids, Night on Earth, The Crucible, The Age of Innocence, and Little Women were also some of her best performances. She also just happens to be the best part of Alien: Resurrection. Winona Ryder is truly America's sweetheart of the 90's and still is today.

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!
