Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s relationship has been the centre of the media’s attention for a while now. The defamation trial that Johnny Depp ultimately won, further made their relationship even more public. However, Amber Heard wasn’t the only woman that Johnny Depp dated during his career. During the 1990s, Johnny Depp was in a serious relationship with Winona Ryder, and the two even got engaged.
Winona Ryder talks about her breakup with Johnny Depp in a recent interview
Winona and Depp had been together for four years before breaking up. The couple jumped into the relationship fast and got engaged just five months into the relationship before falling apart a few years later. Recently, the Stranger Things star talked about her breakup with Johnny Depp and how it impacted her mental health. The actress stated in an interview with Harper Bazaar,
“I remember Michelle (Pfieffer) being like, ‘This is going to pass.’ But I couldn’t hear it. I’ve never talked about it. There’s this part of me that’s very private. I have such, like, a place in my heart for those days. But for someone younger who grew up with social media, it’s hard to describe.”
Winona Ryder admits to seeing a therapist after her breakup with Johnny Depp
Winona also said the breakup was her “Girl, Interrupted real life.” The actress also talked about seeing “an incredible therapist” who taught her to be kind to a younger version of herself.
“I would look at these fake bruises and cuts on my face [from the shoot], and I would struggle to see myself as this little girl. ‘Would you be treating this girl like you’re treating yourself?’ I remember looking at myself and saying, ‘This is what I’m doing to myself inside.’ Because I just wasn’t taking care of myself,” the actress added.
Fans react to Winona Ryder’s statements about the breakup
Winona’s comments on the breakup that happened decades ago were not met well by the fans.

Is that about the time she submarined Godfather 3, by not accepting the role of Michael Corleone’s daughter.

According to the fans, it makes no sense to dig old graves and talk about the past repeatedly just to get attention. Moreover, it seems like the actress does not look back at her days in the 1980s-1990s with fondness since Winona recently stated that she wasn’t attractive enough during the time.
