Winona Ryder - Winona Ryder Welcomes Wrinkles

Winona Ryder is relishing growing older, insisting she is looking forward to having wrinkles.

The actress was one of the hottest young stars in Hollywood during the 1980s and '90s, making her movie debut aged 15. She went on to define her generation with roles in Heathers, Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands, but is adamant she is not desperate to hold on to her youth.

The 41 year old tells Britain's Radio Times, "I love getting older. And I was really excited to turn 40. I feel like the older you get, the more yourself you become, and I think the roles, even if they are smaller, are more interesting.

"I do look forward to the wrinkles, actually. Really, I won't mind. I started out so young and part of me always wanted to be older to get those more interesting parts. Now I feel like I have more life experience and I embrace it.

"Being the ingenue is fun for a while, and if you are lucky you get a couple of years. I feel like I got really lucky because I had a lot longer than that. And part of me never thought that I would still be acting now, so I relish the work. There's a lot of pressure in Hollywood on women to stay younger looking, which I don't quite understand."
