Winona Ryder’s Missing Borrowed Jewelry

November 28, 2008

Meet Winona Ryder. She is an American actress whose roles have won her not only critical praise but numerous film awards. She is also well-known for shoplifting. Read her biography below, see photos and a video.

It seems that the Police in Spain are investigating $125,000 in missing designer jewelry last seen on Winona Ryder at an event on Sunday. She was loaned an incredible Bulgari bracelet and ring to wear to a Marie Claire event in Spain last weekend. Now the jewelry is apparently missing.

Supposedly Winona left the diamond encrusted bracelet and ring in an envelope and handed them to front desk staff at her Madrid hotel. But closed circuit TV doesn’t show her returning anything.

And even though Winona was arrested for shoplifting at Saks Fifth Avenue in 2001 and there was this incident with a CVS Pharmacy, police are not considering Winona a suspect in the jewelry case at this time. Right.

Winona Ryder Biography

Winona Laura Horowitz – better known as Winona Ryder – was born on October 29, 1971 in Olmsted County, Minnesota so her age is 37. She was named after the nearby city of ‘Winona.’ Her mom is a Buddhist and her father is an atheist but she considers herself Jewish. Her grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Russia, and relatives of hers actually died in the Holocaust.

Winona has a younger brother, Yuri, an older half-brother, Jubal, and an older half-sister, Sunyata. Her godfather is LSD guru Timothy Leary.

When Winona was seven years old, her family moved to a commune in California, where they lived with seven other families on a 300-acre farm. In 1983, when Ryder was 12, she enrolled at the American Conservatory Theater in nearby San Francisco, where she took her first acting lessons. Winona graduated from Petaluma High School with a 4.0 GPA in 1989.

Her acting career began in 1986. Her early films were Lucas, Beetlejuice, and the cult film Heathers. She has been in many films including Edward Scissorhands, The Godfather Part 3, The Age of Innocence, Girl, Interrupted, and Mr. Deeds just to name a few!

She has had some legal trouble. On December 12, 2001, Winona was arrested on shoplifting charges in Beverly Hills, California. She was accused of stealing $5,500 worth of designer clothes and accessories at a Saks Fifth Avenue department store. She was also accused of using drugs without valid prescriptions. She was convicted of grand theft and vandalism, but was acquitted on the third felony charge, burglary. She was sentenced to three years’ probation, 480 hours of community service, $3,700 in fines, and $6,355 in restitution to the Saks Fifth Avenue store – and was ordered to attend psychological and drug counseling.

Winona has had an interesting public love life. She had a longtime relationship with Johnny Depp in the 1990’s and was engaged to him for a while. She has also been linked with Dave Pimer of Soul Asylum, actor Matt Damon, comedian Jimmy Fallon, and recently split from boyfriend Blake Sennett.
