Winona Ryder was once plastered everywhere, thanks to her movie roles, romantic personal life and quirky fashion sense. Her style may be the same, but apparently her face isn’t. Despite the fact that she looks much the same as she did back in Edward Scissorhands, the star says she isn’t interested in plastic surgery.
In the April 2014 issue of Red magazine, 42-year old Winona Ryder reveals that while she may still look the same as she did when she played a troubled youth, her face tells a different story up close and personal. Although many assume that Winona has been under the knife to preserve her unique beauty, she says that the result is great makeup and professional photographers to catch her at her best.
When asked about plastic surgery, Winona reveals that while she doesn’t want to seem critical of anyone has turned to plastic surgery, she herself relies more on the magic of makeup.
Winona says, “I’m hesitant to say this because I don’t want to knock anybody who’s done it, but the whole thing with plastic surgery… When you’re around people who celebrate age and respect every line for telling a story, it’s beautiful. I wish there was more of a celebration of getting older. When I do magazine shoots, people always say, ‘Oh, she doesn’t age,’ but I have the best make-up people and photographers. I don’t look like that every day.”
Although it may seem counterintuitive, Winona may be telling the truth. While many believe that plastic surgery is a way to preserve youth, too much of a good thing often changes a person’s appearance. Still, it doesn’t mean that Winona hasn’t faced her share of plastic surgery rumors over the years.
As a young actress, Winona is thought to have undergone nose surgery, as very old photos of Winona seem to reveal a wider nasal tip than the one she has had all of her adult life. The procedure was very natural and had great results, although Winona may also have learned to angle her head for a more flattering angle and a better view of her nose as she grew into fame.
There have also been rumors that the troubled actress has undergone a breast augmentation, but as her bust size varies depending on what she is wearing, that likely indicates different bust boosters at work, including tape and push-up bras, rather than implants. If she did have implants, she chose a very conservative size that she continues to augment with various breast-enhancing devices.
Winona seems to be aging fairly naturally, with fine lines beginning to creep around her eyes. She likely has always used an excellent skincare line and avoided the sun to keep her creamy complexion freckle-free, which also serves as an excellent aging deterrent.
In past interviews, Winona has said that she is enjoying growing older.
“I’m not trying to knock it, but, you know, I have a little bit of traffic now on my forehead – which I’m like very proud of actually – and it’s interesting how people just instinctively are like, ‘Oh, maybe you should get something done for that.’ And it’s like, ‘Really?’”none
