After the release of Stranger Things Season 4 Volume 1, fans are excited and are direly waiting to witness volume 2 for the same. Winona Ryder recently played Joyce Byers in this Netflix series and she is bagging a massive amount of love and appreciation for the same. She is a treat to our eyes and we cannot imagine her being called ugly or anything nasty for that matter. However, she revealed that during the 80s she wasn’t really considered attractive by the directors.

Yes, that’s true. However, this might be the last thing we want to hear or read but it is true. Finding Ms. Ryder unattractive is something that cannot be true. This is something one cannot really comprehend. Winona Ryder revealed how during the 80s directors found her unattractive and often told her that she wasn’t pretty enough for the role. Sitting by her side while she blurts this out, David Harbour is more than surprised and we can very well relate to that look after knowing this.


Ryder had her looks critiqued early on in her career, in 2013 she told Interview: I remember one time in particular. I was in the middle of auditioning, and I was mid-sentence when the casting director said, ‘Listen, kid. You should not be an actress. You are not pretty enough. You should go back to wherever you came from and you should go to school. You don’t have it.’ She was very blunt—I honestly think that she thought she was doing me a favor. We’re glad the Stranger Things star didn’t listen.

Winona Ryder plays their goth teenage daughter, Lydia Deetz. Now that the sequel for this masterpiece is arriving in theatres in 2025, Winona Ryder will be returning as its cast after almost 30 years. Fans are ecstatic to witness a sequel to Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice. For those who haven’t seen the movie, Beetlejuice follows Adam and Barbara Maitland, portrayed by Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis, as they attempt to frighten away a family who has taken up residence in their home. They come into touch with Michael Keaton’s over-the-top bio-exorcist Betelgeuse, but his antics just add to the confusion.
