With Halloween coming out, with movies like Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, and the 1992 Bram Stoker’s Dracula getting airplay through the month, Winona Ryder’s old career gets its assured seasonal time in the spotlight. That said, she already has regained star-status with the success of Stranger Things. It makes you wonder how much the starlet is worth.
Winona Ryder’s Net Worth as of 2017: $18 million
Ryder’s net worth is estimated at around $18 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth via Bankrate. While most of her money comes from her acting, her most recent success is believed to be what helped to fatten her bank account.
The Early Years-1985
As a young girl, she was said to have had an unconventional childhood, with family friends like Timothy Leary and Allen Ginsberg. Like many children, she was said to be bullied at school, until she was eventually home-schooled. Later, she took courses in acting at the American Conservatory Theater.
Her first film role was in Lucas, but roles like in Mermaids, Heathers, and The Crucible, as well as the aforementioned Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands, helped to make her a household name. In 2000, she was rewarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In late 2001, Ryder had been arrested on charges of shoplifting in Beverly Hill, eventually leading to a conviction of grand theft, shoplifting, and vandalism, with felony charges that were later reduced to misdemeanors, back in 2004. During this time, she took a hiatus from her acting career. While having film roles throughout the 2000’s, her biggest break since the incident was arguably 2010’s Black Swan.
In a way, Ryder has recrafted the gothic image she made for herself in the 90’s, with a role in 2012’s Frankenweenie, directed by Tim Burton, and playing Joyce Byers in Strangers Things.
