If you thought that after winning the defamation trial against your ex-wife ( Amber Heard ) your life would be calmer, you were wrong. The name of Johnny Depp continues to be at the center of the scene, contemplating that both colleagues and girlfriends from the past appear to talk about him. This time it was Winona Ryder, who made a strong confession.

The actress had an affair with the actor in the 1990s. They met in New York at the premiere of ” Great Ball of Fire ” in 1989 and the following year they got engaged. The relationship lasted four years and the protagonist of Pirates of the Caribbean got a tattoo that read ” Winona Forever “, which he later changed to ” Wino Forever ” when love faded.

Almost three decades after that breakup, the woman who shone in Stranger Thing gave an exclusive to the American fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar, in which she revealed that she went through “a lot of pain” after the unexpected estrangement in 1993. She had to go to therapy to overcome the crisis he experienced.

“It was like ‘Girl, Interrupted’ in real life. I remember Michelle (Pfeiffer) telling me, ‘This is going to happen.’ But I couldn’t hear it. I have never talked about it. There is a part of me that is very private. I have a place in my heart for those days. But for someone younger who grew up with social media, it’s hard to describe,” she began her description.

The healing process took place thanks to a technique in which she was kind to a younger version of herself: “I remember, I was playing this character who ends up being tortured in a Chilean prison (The House of the Spirits). She looked at these fake bruises and cuts on my face and struggled to see myself as a girl. ‘Would you be treating this girl how you are treating yourself?’ I remember looking at myself and saying, ‘This is what I’m doing to myself on the inside. She just wasn’t taking care of me,'” she concluded.

Sadness is part of the past and today they are great friends, to the point that the actress showed her support after the accusations of domestic violence made by Amber Heard. “I can only speak from my own experience, which was very different from what is being said. He was never, ever that way with me. He never abused me at all. I just know him as the really good, loving, caring guy that he is. very, very protective of the people he loves.”
