Fact: Actress Winona Ryder defined an era. From iconic roles in Beetlejuice, Girl Interrupted and Reality Bites, her name was synonymous with talent and her face became the poster child for a certain disenfranchised generation. So it was little surprise she was enveloped as the perennial Hollywood ingenue.
