Winona Ryder is looking back on her relationship with Johnny Depp.

The two started dating after meeting at the New York premiere of “Great Balls of Fire!” in 1989. Two months later, they had their first date. Five months after their first date, the two Hollywood stars got engaged. They appeared in the 1990 film Edward Scissorhands, and Depp even had a tattoo that read “Winona Forever.”

But in June 1993, the couple announced their withdrawal. Depp famously changed his body art to “Forever Wine”.

Ryder, who was on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s July 2022 digital edition, called their breakup and Hollywood culture at the time “my ‘girl, interrupted’ real life,” referring to her 1999 story about A movie about the mental health struggle.

The 50-year-old told the outlet that an “incredible” therapist suggested she try to imagine her younger self and be kinder to her.

“I remember the character I played ended up being tortured in a Chilean prison [for the 1994 film ‘The House of the Spirits’]’ she recalled. ‘I would look at these fake bruises and cuts on my face [from the shoot], I have a hard time seeing myself as this little girl. “Would you treat this girl like yourself?” I remember looking at myself and saying, “That’s what I’m doing to myself in my heart.” Because I just didn’t take care of myself. “

“I never talked about it,” Ryder admitted. “This part of me is very private. I have a place in my heart in those days. But for a young man who grew up on social media, it’s hard to describe.”

Ryder also noted that she “definitely quit” the tabloids in the early 2000s.

“I was in San Francisco,” she told the outlet. “But I didn’t get an offer either. I think it was a very mutual break. When you look at things early on, it was so funny. It was a brutal period. There were a lot of scumbags out there…  .and then I remember going back to LA and it was a tough time. I don’t know if that part of my life is over.

In 2016, Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard obtained a domestic violence restraining order against the actor during their divorce. Ryder, who is known for keeping quiet about her personal life, told Time magazine that Depp never abused her during their relationship, which ended decades ago. Depp, 59, has long denied the allegations.

“I can only speak from my own experience, which is nothing like what is said,” Ryder explained at the time. “He never, never treated me like that. Never abused me. I just knew he was a very nice, loving, caring man who was very, very protective of those he loved.”

“I wasn’t there. I don’t know what happened. I wouldn’t call anyone a liar,” Ryder continued. “I’m just saying, it makes me sad, sad. You see, that was a long time ago, but we’ve been together for four years, and it’s a big relationship for me. Imagine if someone You’re accused of doing this when you were dating – I was 17 when I met him. This is shocking. I’ve never seen him be violent to a person before. “

Ryder also described being “down” and “going through something” in the 1990s, around the time she and Depp split.

“You can’t expect the industry to prove you’re a human being because it just leads to incredible disappointment. I admit I sinned when I was young because you got involved and was surrounded by people saying you thought it was It’s the most important thing, and you’re young and you believe it.”
