Ryder feels connected to child actors she’s working with
Actor Winona Ryder (right) says she feels like a mother to her young Stranger Things co-stars. The 44-year-old star, who has no kids herself, said she found it “strange” to quickly develop a strong maternal bond with her on-screen children Noah Scnapp and Charlie Heaton, reported Female First. “Honestly, I felt like Noah and Charlie were my kids. It was a bit alarming — it happened in an instant, almost like when my niece and nephew were born,” she said, adding, “It was like for the first time in my life I understood how you would jump in front of a bus for this little baby that you don’t even know yet. I did feel Charlie helped me a great deal with the emotion. He’s a tremendous actor.”
Ryder also said that there is much more she can learn from the young actors. “These kids are so incredible and special and talented, and they all love doing what they do. The only thing I could say to them is that getting to do the work is the reward, that life is short and you have to enjoy what you do — and we really, truly did,” she added. merican actor Zooey Deschanel (right), who worked with singeractor Justin Timberlake (above) in the 3D computeranimated musical comedy film Trolls, says she first met the singer-actor 10 years ago and he blew her away.
On a talk show, when asked if she had meet Timberlake before, Deschanel said, “I had actually, we did a screen test together like 10 years ago. I only knew his work as a singer at the time, and they were like, ‘Well Justin Timberlake’s testing’.”
Deschanel added, “I was reading with a bunch of different actors, and they were like, ‘Justin Timberlake’s coming’. Well I was like, ‘I don’t know what to expect because he’s a singer’. And I know he’s a great singer. And then he came in and he blew me away. He was such a good actor. And I was like, ‘Come on’.”
