Wino Forever: Happy Birthday To Lissome Specter, Winona Ryder

winona-ryder-beetlejuice-sequel.jpgOn this date, 44 years ago, a gust wind blew open a wood garden gate, carrying with it leaves, twine, and loose buttons.

Nearby, a rope tree swing rocked slightly, disturbing a crow that had been perched on the sturdy branch above; it ruffled its feathers and cawed at the blanched sky above it.

And that's how Winona Ryder was born.

Happy birthday, Wino.

From living in a yurt with your family in an artist commune on a farm, to starring in some of the most beloved movies of the past 20 years, you've simply given us life, over and over again.

You're given back, in a major way...

...have a gloriously spooky sounding Netflix original series on the way...

...and aside from a few bumps (we don't blame you, boo)...

you've effortlessly glided through the often treacherous and eternal twilight of Hollywood.
