Ryder: 'I Didn't Feel Guilty After Shoplifting Arrest'

Actress WINONA RYDER refused to feel guilty in the aftermath of her infamous 2001 shoplifting arrest, because she didn't harm anyone. The Beetlejuice star, who was convicted of trying to steal clothing from a Beverly Hills, California department store, insists painkillers she was taking for a broken arm were to blame for her bizarre behaviour. She tells the American edition of Vogue magazine, "I didn't have this tremendous sense of guilt because I hadn't hurt anyone. "Had I physically harmed someone or caused harm to a human being, I think it would have been an entirely different experience."

Anger Managemen...

Although it has been several years since Winona was arrested for shop lifting, she is not acknowledging responsibility for the fact that the harm she did....was to herself. Who did she harm? Family? Friends? Ofcourse those close to her were affected by her inappropriate behavior. However, the most damaging harm was definitely to herself.It would be a large growth spurt in Emotional Intelligence for her to make ammends to those involved personally and professionally. Again, we see another celebrity who could be a positive role model for adolescents, just make light of a serious behavior.
