Stephen: Winona Ryder thinks she went too far on Stranger Things

Winona Ryder admits that she “may have gone too far” while portraying the mother of a lost child in the first season of Stranger Things. “It’s a weird, primal thing… it seemed like every day I was crying or freaking out,” Ryder tells Marie Claire UK. Ryder, who has no children, goes on to explain that she asked her own mother for advice while preparing for the role. “I said, ‘Mom, if every bit of logic is telling you your kid is gone, would you still [refuse to believe it]?’” she recalls. “And she said, ‘Absolutely.’ I said, ‘What if they show you a body?’ She said, ‘If you don’t see it happen, you don’t believe it.’”
