Meryl Streep inspired Winona Ryder's happiness
Fri, 29 May 2009 12:00a.m.
Winona Ryder vowed to cheer up on movie sets after Meryl Streep taught her how to be happy and successful.
The actress, who suffered from depression following her split from Johnny Depp, realized she could combine her acting with a contented personal life after working with Streep on 1993's The House of the Spirits.
And the experience helped her learn it wasn't necessary for actors to be moody in order to give their best performance.
Ryder tells Elle UK, "I worked with Meryl Streep on The House of the Spirits. I always thought actors had to be really depressed or moody or anguished to be great, but she was completely fine and had her family and came to work and did an amazing job and she wasn't that way.
"I remember that being a really big deal to me. And I was like, 'Wow, I can actually be happy and be good at the same time!'"
