“He’s like the same guy that I met, that first day I met him when I didn’t even know he was the director (of Beetlejuice, 1988) because he was so cool, and we were talking and I was like “When’s this Tim Burton guy getting here?”, and he was like “Oh that’s me!”, and I was like “Oh! What? You? You’re so cool!”

Winona Ryder on Tim Burton (2012)


“When you don’t have many friends and you don’t have a social life you’re kind of left looking at things, not doing things. There’s a weird freedom in not having people treat you like you’re part of society or where you have to fulfill social relationships.”

Happy 57th birthday Timothy Walter “Tim” Burton (°August 25, 1958)

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.’ ”
