The former couple starred in Edward Scissorhands and after just five months of dating, Johnny Depp asked for Ryder’s hand in marriage.
During an interview with People, Depp had nothing but wonderful things to say about the Stranger Things actress.
“There’s been nothing in my 27 years that’s comparable to the feeling I have with Winona… I love her so much. I don’t know what I would do without her. I love that girl. I love her almost more than I love myself,” he said.
During an interview, Ryder also gushed over the Pirates of the Caribbean star. The actress said that Depp was her first everything.
“When I met Johnny, I was a pure virgin. He changed that. He was my first everything. My first real kiss. My first real boyfriend. My first fiancé. The first guy I had sex with,” she said.
But in the summer of 1993, Ryder and Depp shocked their fans when they announced their split. Since then their lives changed forever.
Following their breakup, Depp returned to work with director Tim Burton. The latter said that Johnny Depp turned up to work in floods of tears. When Burton asked Depp what happened, he said that the breakup was his fault and not Ryder’s.
One year later, Depp dated Kate Moss. But Burton said that the couple’s relationship wasn’t the same with Depp and Ryder’s relationship.
“I felt weird to be around him like he wasn’t acting like Johnny anymore. It’s almost like Winona took Johnny’s soul, Johnny’s love,” Burton said.
According to Mirror, Ryder spiraled into a dark depression after her split from Depp. The actress has also prescribed sleeping pills following her anticipatory nostalgia diagnosis. The condition is characterized by an acute sadness caused by leaving something important behind.
There was a time when Ryder almost ended up dead when she lit a cigarette fire in her hotel room. Years later, Ryder shoplifted at a store in Beverly Hills.
Following their split, Depp also had to tweak the tattoo that he got with Ryder’s name on it. Instead of removing the ink, the actor decided to replace “Winona Ryder” with “Wino Forever.”
“To have the tattoo removed or erase it is to try and say it never happened. If I alter it in some way, make it funny – put her next boyfriend’s name on top of it, say – it would still be honest,” he explained.
Years later, Johnny Depp dated Amber Heard shortly after they starred in The Rum Diary. However, their marriage ended in a divorce.
