Winona Ryder looked very beautiful in Italy yesterday attending the Giffoni Film Festival. Beautiful, and not even so crazy even though she is so f-cking crazy. Love her, but it’s the truth.

Remember she was all like, yeah we’ll be doing a Heathers sequel and Christian Slater’s on board too…?

Well the director Michael Lehmann publicly announced that, well, she was out of her mind, and that no, there are NO plans to do more Heathers:

Winona’s been talking about this for years — she brings it up every once in a while and [screenwriter] Dan Waters and I will joke about it, but as far as I know there’s no script and no plans to do the sequel. A couple weeks ago everyone started talking about it and I guess Winona said the movie was gonna get made, and I thought, “I don’t know, maybe they did this without me?” But I got in touch with Dan Waters and he said he didn’t know anything about it. So I don’t think there’s any truth to it.

Embarrassing, right?

Not only because she was called out for lying, but because that lie reflected so much desperation. And once upon a time, Winona Ryder did not need to be desperate. She needs a Travolta/Tarantino, if only he’d give her the time of day and write for her.
