Winona Ryder: I avoid the internet


Winona Ryder gives the internet a miss

Winona Ryder has yet to catch up with modern times, with the actress revealing she never uses the internet.

The 39-year-old, who next stars alongside Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, has yet to use the iPad that director Ron Howard gave her as a gift after they completed The Dilemma, and prefers writing letters with “paper and pen”.

“I don’t use the internet, but apparently you can find out everything on it – I have my e-mail on my BlackBerry, and that’s about it,” she told US Elle.

Winona bemoaned that the wealth of information available these days can spoil her enjoyment of a film.

“I’ve never read a blog, ever. I feel like it’s taking away that great anticipation of seeing a movie,” she said.

“It used to be you’d hear, like, Al Pacino was making a movie, and you wouldn’t know anything about it. And nowadays, you know it all, like how much [the actors] are being paid. I would hate to see a picture of me and the caption reads, ‘Is she worth it?’.”
