Winona Ryder in high school
“I was wearing an old Salvation Army shop boy’s suit. As I went to the bathroom I heard people saying, ‘Hey, faggot’. They slammed my head into a locker. I fell to the ground and they started to kick the shit out of me. I had to have stitches. The school kicked me out, not the bullies.
“Years later, I went to a coffee shop and I ran into one of the girls who’d kicked me, and she said, ‘Winona, Winona, can I have your autograph?’ And I said, ‘Do you remember me? Remember in seventh grade you beat up that kid?’ And she said, ‘Kind of’. And I said, ‘That was me. Go fuck yourself.’”
Anonymous asked: What motivates you?
Hmm that’s a good question. My biggest motivation is my friends and family. I know that soumds cheesy, but it’s the truth. I want to make them proud of me. I don’t want to let them down. I believe in them all so much and truly think that they can achieve anything if they want it. So, I must believe in myself as well and strive for what I want, for them. :)
It well may be that we will never meet again in this lifetime, so let me say before we part, so much of me is made from what I learned from you. Like a hand print on my heart, and now whatever way our stories end, I know you have rewritten mine by being my friend.— Wicked (via whatabout-youandme)
