|Winona Ryder at TIFF 2010|
Winona Ryder is back in the headlines again and this time it's not negative press about her. Ryder just revealed in an Interview with GQ Magazine, an encounter she had with shamed Actor Mel Gibson some years ago at a bash in Hollywood.
Ryder recalls "He was really drunk. I was with my friend, who's Gay. He (Gibson) made a really horrible Gay joke. And somehow it came up that I was Jewish. He said something about 'Oven Dodgers,' but I didn't get it. I'd never heard that before. It was just this weird, weird moment. I was like, 'He's Anti-Semitic and he's Homophobic.' No one believed me!". For your own knowledge, an Over Dodger is a crude term used to describe people of Jewish descent in reference to the cremations which took place during the Holocaust.
No surprises here. So much for the Public's forgiveness of Gibson for now - not that I've ever really been a big Fan of his to begin with.
On her period of addiction to Prescribed Drugs, Ryder explained "I broke my arm in two places. For about a month, I had to take it. But then I just kept taking it for, like... maybe three more weeks. But the thing I do remember is that once my arm was OK and they were still there, you kind of like... ".
All is forgiven Winona, welcome back! The negative publicity you had was a good thing because it gave you a chance to come back and remind us why we loved you in the first place. Now stop being so mean to your Fans and sign some Autographs for crying out loud! Horrible.
