Did You Know?
In my first apartment in L.A., Jodie Foster
lived upstairs, and we'd do laundry together. She's so smart. She told me to resist doing things that other people say you should do. Don't be 'strategic'! I was up for this movie, Mobsters
(1991), and everyone said I should do it. But Jodie said, "You have to feel very connected to something before you do it." So I turned it down. And it was a flop.
When Joyce Maynard
released private letters from J.D. Salinger
to the public for an auction, Ryder bid on them in hopes of sending them back to Salinger to honor his privacy or to ignite them if he did not wish to keep them. Salinger is one of her favorite writers.
Frequently plays a character who writes. In most of her films, she has played a journalist, a reporter, a writer or just a teenager who writes in a journal or diary.
