Ryder's 'Alcoholism' Following Depp Split
Hollywood actress WINONA RYDER "attempted" to become an alcoholic recluse after the break-up of her romance with JOHNNY DEPP. The GIRL, INTERRUPTED star, 34, dated Depp for four years, calling it a "fiercely deep love". But she descended into wallowing when they split in 1993, spending endless nights alone listening to moody TOM WAITS records. She says, "I was embarrassingly dramatic at the time. But you have to remember I was only 19 years old. "I attempted being an alcoholic for two weeks, spending a lot of time in my hotel room, drinking screwdrivers from the mini-bar, smoking cigarettes and listening to Tom Waits."
