Winona Ryder’s first big role came in 1988 as the goth teenager Lydia in Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice. She was nominated for Academy Awards for her work in The Age of Innocence and Little Women. Ryder was engaged to Johnny Depp for three years in the early 90s. He even had “Winona Forever” tattooed on his arm. But when they broke up he had the tat changed to “Wino Forever.” But her starring roles and romances were overshadowed in 2001 when she was arrested for shoplifting $5,500 worth of designer clothes from Saks Fifth Avenue. Winona was convicted of felony grand theft and put on probation for three years and required to perform 480 hours of community service. She went on hiatus for five years but has made a successful return to cinema. Ryder starred as an aging ballerina in Black Swan, and starred alongside Vince Vaughn and Kevin James in The Dilemna. Today is also the birthday of former Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard. She won seven medals in the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympics, but failed to qualify in 2012. Beard was featured in the 2006 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and posed nude in the July 2007 Playboy.
So, who’s older? Winona or Amanda??
