Winona Ryder Reveals Why She Never Got Married

The actress, once engaged to Johnny Depp, weighs in on tying the knot. 

Winona Ryder, 44, has been promoting of Stranger Things on Netflix, and in the meantime is dropping some personal nuggets as well—like the fact she has zero interest in marriage

She was once engaged to Johnny Depp, and dated Soul Asylum’s Dave Pirner, Matt Damon, and Beck, but the actress never married.

In an interview with Net-A-Porter's The Edit, the beauty says she is happy dating. 

“I’m a serial monogamist,” she told the magazine. “I was single for a while and dating and … I just didn’t know how to do it! I’ve always been like that: When I was 15, there was a guy I liked, and we made out, and I thought that meant he was my boyfriend. My mom had to explain it to me.”

On marriage, she says she’s just fine not walking down the aisle

“But marriage? I don’t know,” she said. “I’d rather never have been married than been divorced a few times. Not that there’s anything wrong with divorce, but I don’t think I could do it if that was a possibility. When your parents are madly in love for 45 years, your standards are really high. But I’ve been happily with someone for quite a while now.”

Winona also says she’s managed to stay private in the age of social media—a feat in Hollywood. 

“I’m not on [social media]. I’m very private so I can’t imagine what I’d want to share with the world,” she says. “I can’t even take selfies; I literally just learned about the button that makes the screen flip. I think [social media] is a bit dangerous, in terms of self-obsession. It’s so important to look outward.”
