Winona Ryder Has Been Crying From ‘Beetlejuice’ to ‘Stanger Things’

Winona Ryder is probably the worst thing about Stranger Things. That’s not a knock on her. It’s just everything else is fantastic and she’s just…Winona Ryder. But she took her role very seriously.

In an interview with Marie Claire, Winona talked about playing a mom who had lost her child and getting advice from her own mom:

‘I said, “Mom, if every bit of logic is telling you your kid is gone, would you still [refuse to believe it]?” And she said, “Absolutely.” I said, “What if they show you a body?” She said, “If you don’t see it happen, you don’t believe it.” It’s a weird, primal thing. But I may have gone too far: it seemed like every day I was crying or freaking out.’

Winona doesn’t have kids, so I can see how the role would be emotionally draining for her. She seemed to treat Noah Schnapp (her son in the show) as if he were her actual child. That’s some Daniel Day-Lewis s**t, folks. Of course she’s now ruined season two because if her actual child were kidnapped and taken to the depths of darkness in real life, he’d never be allowed out of the house again.

Winona is basically outing herself as a bad mother in season two.

In the interview, Winona also revealed that she has a history of crying over the roles she’s played. While she cried on her own over Stranger Things, others made her cry over Beetlejuice.

‘I remember thinking, “Ooh, it’s like the number-one movie. This is going to make things great at school.” But it made things worse. They called me a witch.’

Did she try saying “Beetlejuice” three times? I heard he appears if you do that. Honestly though, why didn’t that happen? She says “Beetlejuice” three times as kids call her a witch, Michael Keaton shows up to scare the s**t out of everyone, and then it turns into a giant school party with Michael Keaton.

Either Keaton didn’t like Ryder enough to do this for her or they just weren’t thinking.
