Over her decades-long career, Angelina Jolie has worked with several Hollywood stars in multiple movies. And there might be a possibility that the experience of starring alongside a fellow actor was not always the same for her. The actress starred alongside the Stranger Things star Winona Ryder in the 1999 drama Girl, Interrupted. Based on a memoir of the same name, the movie follows a young woman, Susanna Kaysen, who spends a year and a half in a psychiatric hospital after attempting suicide.

Angelina Jolie has always received praise not only for her work but also for her gorgeous looks. And she has gained a worldwide following for the same as well.

I remember thinking, ‘Oh we’re going to turn out to be great friends,” she shared. However, it did not turn out as she expected. Ryder believes that Jolie just wanted to look at her “character Susanna” and considered not knowing her real self.

She claimed that the Eternals star kept her distance in a respectful way. The Beetlejuice actress also shared that it was also the time when Jolie was adamant to prove that she was so much more than a good face. “She wanted very much to be taken seriously and not just judged on her looks,” she said.
