Personal Quote:

I don't feel threatened like Julia Roberts. Pretty Woman (1990) turned her into an overnight celebrity rather than an actress. Now her whole career is about box-office -- if her movies don't break $l00-million. It's not a burden I'd ever want to carry. See more »

Trivia:

Although there was no electricity on the commune where they lived, when Winona was seven, her mother began to run an old movie theater in a nearby barn and would screen movies all day. She allowed Winona to miss school to watch movies with her. See more »
