Winona talks about how difficult it must be to be famous in this day and age. The starlets like Kristen and Jennifer are dealing with a much different kind of fame — a fame that encompasses an individual’s entire life, not just their “job”.
INTERVIEW: So what do you think when you see some of these girls, like Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence, go through what they’re going through today?
RYDER: I have to say, I really wonder if I would become an actress if I was their age now. I’ve only seen part of Twilight , but I’ve seen their other work and they’re both super-talented. I don’t know how they do it, though, in just trying to maintain some degree of a personal life and privacy. I don’t know how you feel, but when Jodie Foster gave that speech at the Golden Globes, I heard people who were like, “Why is she talking about privacy when she’s on stage?” But I have to say, I got what she was saying. Look, this is a story in Interview, so I do get how people complaining about privacy when they’re actually doing very public things can come across as a bit hypocritical. But I do feel so lucky that I got to get in at least 15 years pre-whatever that show is called where they follow you around and then put it on the Internet. That stuff just didn’t exist before. I also have yet to make sense of reality shows and the whole famous-to-be-famous thing where I don’t really know what they do, but they’re very famous—I know that’s a whole other thing. But in terms of what happened to me or to other people who are friends of mine who have gone through difficult times where it’s really publicized . . . You know, it’s hard—and I do have feelings about it. So it’s a combination of my heart goes out to them, but then at the same time I know that they don’t know anything different.
