Blind Items Revealed - Kindness

May 1, 2014

This former A list mostly movie actress has had a turbulent ride through Hollywood and is not even that old, but it feels as if she has been around forever. Her A list name recognition is the only thing that is keeping her in the B range. Her history and personal life have kind of hindered her ability to get parts. Despite all of that, she is practically bankrupting herself because of all the money she gives to two or three different charities and spends almost a thousand hours a year volunteering at them too.

Winona Ryder

Dingle Barry said...

Someone give her a job!!

Cocoa said...

Ah yeah.... Nerdy girl happy dance!

Violet said...

I've had to put my maths hat on - that's like 2 working days a week. Wow. Good on her.

Runswithscissors said...

Aw Winona, I really like her acting style, I wish she would get more roles.
If she is nuts, as has been reported, it's not bad that her craziness directs her towards philanthropy.

The Real Dragon said...

well she needs to stop. yeah its good cause but aint stay broke becuz of it.

sandybrook said...

Winona is a good person how the hell could you not be with a name like Winona?

sugarbread maker said...

Save some for yourself girlfriend. There's no retirement fund for you either

Seven of Eleven said...

Go, Cocoa!

Veronica was always my favorite Heather.

Cocoa said...

I clearly learned from the best, Sandybrook. Thank you all, I couldn't have done it without you. *sniff*

FrenchGirl said...

Yet revealed before?

sandybrook said...

Go get yourself a free doughnut Cocoa. You earned it!

sandybrook said...

I dont think so French Girl its only been up 5 weeks. There was another one similar with Britney Spears revealed but not the same one.

abbiesgail said...

This warms my heart. I love Winona.

Krystie Rachelle said...

She could probably raise money for charities and not just spend her own, if she wasn't such a hot mess. People would probably be leery of anything collecting money she attaches her name too.

Mama Bear said...

You go Glen Coco!

TalksTooMuch said...

^5!

TalksTooMuch said...

I still don't like her, but I'm glad she's doing something good with her dough

The Real Dragon said...

@talk why dont you like her? She seems harmless beside the robbing and shit lol

Sherry said...

At least she's doing something good out there. Wonder what charities she works on.

__-__=__ said...

That's sweet. This should make people want to hire her. We all know they put up with crazy from plenty who are not as generous and not as loved by fans.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Real dragon heh

Henriette said...

Lainey has been trying to make WannaRideHer happen for the longest time, but her ship has sailed.

MISCH said...

She was treated very badly, punished for what most of them do all the time..

Haywood Jablomee said...

The question of the day is "who has serviced more singers, Winona or Giada?"

Tigercat said...

I'm not disrespecting her charitable efforts, but good gosh, when you have the sort of assets WR had, why couldn't a smart financial advisor set it up so the money works in ways that continuously grow and interest steadily flows into the fund rather than consciously take on bankruptcy?

MeanieRhysie said...

Whoo-hook!

J-Mo said...

I bet she's fine financially and has a simple lifestyle. I've loved her from the start but many blinds say she is a rude mega bitch.

sugarbread maker said...

jmo nope she's not realy.. she's living out of helen mirren's guesthouse. she own's nothing. she needs to start saving something for herself someday. if none of her friends helped her out then they won't help her out in the future.

Henriette said...

I don't think WannaRideHer was "punished." She had many breaks and amazing directors, like Francis Copola, who put their necks out for her to get screwed over. She was the one who decided that bad boys, drugs, and not dealing with her issues was the way to play the game. She lost.

Henriette said...

@sugarbreadmaker
Hmm, that was a piece of cute press she put out. WannaRideHer owns a beautiful house in the Cow Hollow section of San Francisco. Do you know how expansive it is to own property in San Francisco? Don't believe the cute sound bites. Just look at this from 2010 real http://realestalker.blogspot.com/2010/10/winona-ryder-does-not-live-here-anymore.htmlestate.

sugarbread maker said...

yeah she gave an interview last fall promoting homefront where she said she was relying on thr kindness of friends and living in hm and taylor hackfords guesthouse for free.
she blew threw all her money. i know she wants to help the poor, but she is the poor.. snap out of it winona you need to invest in something stat

derek harvey said...

Winona has mad coin but she is generous. Generous and complicated. She s great--I have always loved her. Look at her film resume compared to the "A" listers like Sandra Bullocks. I cant name one Sandra Bullock movie I love but I can name 10 Winonas. We all can. She use to be a mega bitch though. Fame does that to people.

derek harvey said...

Lainey is a bitch that is OBSESSED with Winona---it is embarrassing actually. Heathers, Reality Bites, Edward Scissor Hands, Reality Bites, Girl Interuppted, Black Swan, Great Balls of Fire, Little Women-----can Charlize compare to that? nope. Will Shaielene Woodley ever? nope. Perhaps Portman and Kiki...

auntliddy said...

Love her!

derek harvey said...

@Henriette---Say what? That's not the way to win the game? Finally somebody told me----off to Youth Group then!

The Real Dragon said...

@kritin =/

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

"She seemed harmless besides the robbing and shit"

Made me chuckle.

derek harvey said...

@Sugarbread---she is living in Helen Mirrens guesthouse actually

sugarbread maker said...

that's exactly what my 2nd and 3rd comments said.. hm guesthouse

derek harvey said...

well how am I suppose to run my mouth off if I am reading other peoples comments? *jokes*. You must be a true fan like I...

Jason Blue Eyes said...

She's also a two time Oscar nominee. In the span of a year she worked with Coppola and Scorsese. How many other actresses can claim that?

derek harvey said...

actually Chloe Moretz is building up herself a nice resume--and she has stated Winona is her favourite living actor/actress

and lets not forget her face...She is honestly my fav. Sorry for fan girling.

In a perfect world she would get a regular part on GIRLS

Henriette said...

@derekharvey
I actually went to the youth ACT with WannaRideHer, so I'm well acquainted with her "poor me" big brown eye persona. Anyhoo, she is NOT living in Helen Mirren's guest house, but in a beautiful home in San Francisco. Many in these parts, the SF Bay Area, see her ALL the time.

She "lost" the game by screwing over directors by being a flake.

Renoblondee said...

Always adored her.

derek harvey said...

well people make mistakes. Didn't realize 20 something yr olds were perfect and never made bad decisions and let attention go to their head...its cool at @Henriette--I was just joking--

sugarbread maker said...

i gleefully remember the reveal about her screwing the bonesworth's director then fiance now hubby michael polish just to piss her off.
that was really a kindness blind for the rest of us
@derek you're forgiven

derek harvey said...

oh well well don't I feel special ; ) I am normal---90 percent of the time I swear lol

Henriette said...

@derekharvey
I speak from personal experience, she is a class a c*nt. Being a bitch would be a compliment for her. I'm glad Hollyweird continues to spurn her and will continually do so. She's just lucky she missed the Internet age by a few years.

derek harvey said...

@Henriette and I really do believe you. But don't you think her charitable work should be thought upon with respect. Especially since she is doing so under the radar these days? My friends aunt worked with her mom in Toronto---I cant say where etc but her mother is a true humanitarian

derek harvey said...

to be honest Henriette just sounds like your jealous *shrugs* and HWood will always welcome her with open-arms. So you can go watch your Michelle William movies now and move ON. The past is in the past people...

derek harvey said...

and ALSO Henriette I can get Winona over here to defend herself.

derek harvey said...

she figured out to use a computer btw

The Real Dragon said...

@kristen oh lol

texas rose said...

What is the charitable organization - Shoplifters Anonymous??

Crazycatlady said...

Always loved Winona. @ Henrietta, I have no doubt you had a bad experience/s with her but statements based on experiences from 30 odd years ago are pretty harsh and making out like she still behaves that way comes across as petty, incredibly bitchy and smacks of jealously.

derek harvey said...

@Texas do not start with me about Texans rape---I am gonna go see Ringo---so I shall take my "my right meds" and mosey on down-------------------people shoplift ***big deal****

jo davies said...

I love Winona...I won't hear a bad word! It must have been humiliating for her to have her personal issues so public...good on her for doing her volunteer work...that will balance the karma out. I don't care what anyone else says reality bites is one great movie. And she was enaged to johnny depp when he was actually cool and hot...hes still cool now i guess but you know...amber try as you may you and johnny are no nona and johnny or kate and johnny ... Those couplings were legendary...That reminds me I really need to get a Winona T-shirt!

jo davies said...

And please! What's with the holier than thou comment way above...who hasn't decided at some point that" bad boys drugs and not dealing with your issues is the way to go" I'm guilty as charged!!! Fun times lol!!!!! Some of us just have to learn the hard way...

derek harvey said...

@Chiquita just out the door---gotta put my game face on I am seeing Ringo. xoxo

Alita said...

Me too, @Real Dragon - def lol territory with that comment ;)


(Also lollworthy - my spellcheck gave me 'yeti rummaging' for 'territory' - awesome).

Alita said...

Sherry -

I went to google with your question, have we no answer. I didn't read that far, to be fair ;)

BUT after the infamous shoplifting incident I did discover that Wino wanted to

- auction the goods for charity (instead of burning then per the store's concept)
- did her community service
- did extra community service and kept working there, the judge got 'multiple calls from the centre'

Wino Forever!

Alita said...

Sorry - I mean she kept working there after her time was up, and her trial.

I reiterate: Wino Forever!

mngddess said...

She was in the Star Trek movie for about 3 minutes, and I thought she gave a very memorable performance.
