【Aging Gracefully】之Winona Ryder

電影”Beetlejuice”會開拍第二集的消息已經傳了很多年,一直只聞樓梯響。最近這個傳聞又忽然再次熱鬧起來,如果真的成事的話將會令人十分期待,包括我。1988年的”Beetlejuice”是一套黑色喜劇,小小驚嚇,多多攪笑。當年口碑票房俱佳,刀仔鋸大樹。由當年還是新導演的Tim Burton執導,主要演員包括Michael Keaton,Alec Baldwin,Geena Davis,還有我的女神(廿幾年前),那時剛出道不久的Winona Ryder。

求學時期的我非常喜歡Winona Ryder。喜歡她甚麽? 靚囉!除了靚外,她那種「平民化」及「the girl next door」的形象亦深得我的喜愛。她衣著簡樸,不愛穿名牌。她曾穿著價值港幣百多元的裙出席奧斯卡頒獎典禮。她說沒有興趣成為一顆明星(雖然她巳經是一顆明星),只想做一位好演員。還有,我很喜歡看她演戲,她的戲演得自然不造作。她的演戲天份受到各大小導演的賞識,包括Francis Ford Coppola,Martin Scorsese,Woody Allen等等名導演。她曾數次獲奧斯卡金像獎提名,並曾獲金球獎最佳女配角獎。她勇於嘗試不同類形角色挑戰自己,亦樂於參與很多獨立、小本製作電影。她曾是Johnny Depp的至愛,愛得令他在手臂上紋上”Winona Forever”。

當年萬千寵愛在一身的Winona Ryder外表看似事事一帆風順,但其實內裏藏着的心魔卻一直纏繞着她多年,不知何時會爆發出來…….

1985年當時年僅14歲的Winona Ryder參演她的首部電影”Lucas”,一套校園青春電影。電影成績並不理想,但她的演出卻吸引到她的伯樂Tim Burton的注意,邀請她參與電影”Beetlejuice”的演出。這電影的成功不單令Tim Burton躋身名導演行列,更令Winona Ryder成了名。在戲中她飾演一個性格古怪,能夠與鬼溝通的女孩。 162 more words
