Happy Birthday Winona Ryder

Wow are you really 37 today?  We’ve been through a lot together you and I even if you don’t know it.  We fell in love when you were in Lucas and continued our love affair through Beetlejuice, Heathers, Welcome Home Roxy Carmichael and developed unhealthy obsession when you showed in Edward Scissorhands, Little Women and Reality Bites.

Looking back it’s really been all down hill since then.  We were able to forgive you for a slew of movies (especially Mr. Deeds, Autumn in New York) and wanted to wrap you up and give you a giant hug when you were arrested for shoplifting.  You tore our heart out and we wondered if everything we built together just got thrown away.  But still, as Ennis Delmar said, we couldn’t quite you.

No, there was always something about you: that crazy hair, that slacker coolness, the soft voice, how you got Johnny Depp to put a tattoo of you on his arm and then your love for sleeping with every rockstar on the planet.

So were are we know?  37.  Hard to imagine that the cutest little thing is all grown up now.  I have a feeling we’re not done, especially now with your recent move into science-fiction by starring in A Scanner Darkly and the upcoming Star Trek reboot from J.J. Abrams.

It’s almost like you want us to like you even more than we already do.  Happy Birthday Winona.
