Ryder's Acting 'Shame'

WINONA RYDER spent years feeling "ashamed" of her acting career, because she thought it was a "shallow occupation". The MERMAIDS star, 34, started acting in her teens and hated the reaction to her job from the public and her associates. She says, "I know how nauseating it is when actors complain about their lives. We're sickeningly well-paid people who have very charmed lives. But that doesn't mean you don't have problems. "For a long time I was ashamed of being an actress. I felt like it was a shallow occupation. "And people would be watching my every move. They'd be judging me: 'Look at her shoes. I bet they cost $400.' In fact, I grew up with no money - we lived without electricity, running water or heating except for a stove."
