Believe it or not, actress Winona Ryder will be celebrating her 40th birthday next year! Her career is on the upswing thanks to roles in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan and the comedy The Dilemma. When it comes to her personal life, Winona reveals that she still hopes to be a mom one day.
“Knock on wood!” she tells ELLE when asked about having kids, adding that she “would at least take a couple of years off” to focus on motherhood. But first she seems to have her sights set on finding a good guy.
“I remember being at this bar called Tosca in San Francisco, and I met this guy one night,” Winona recalls. “He was really cute, and we were talking, and then, like, he just said something about how he had always had a crush on me. And I was suddenly mistrustful about why he was talking to me. I wanted to be just a normal girl flirting with a normal guy. It’s like you meet people, and they know this stuff about you. It’s why you want to meet somebody who’s in the same business, only because they understand more. But you don’t necessarily want to be with another actor.”
She has had a few high profile relationships in the past – she was engaged to her Edward Scissorhands co-star Johnny Depp and also dated actor Matt Damon.
