Winona Ryder Opens Up About Experiencing Anti-Semitism

American actress Winona Ryder talked about her experience in the film industry. She revealed she lost her role in a movie she was waiting for a long time because the producer said she looked ‘too Jewish’.

She disclosed that many times she has experienced anti-Semitism. Many times people said to her ‘Wait, you are a Jewish?  But you’re so pretty.’

Winona also spoke about the incident when American-Australian actor Mel Gibson asked her ‘if she was an ‘oven dodger.’ She said Gibson later apologized for his comment.

Winona talked about her Jewish heritage and disclosed that she is not that religious. But it is not easy for her to talk about because her family had died in camps. She has always been captivated by that time.

Winona was born on October 29, 1971. She is the receiver of a Golden Globe Award. Actress has also been named for two Academy Awards, four Screen actors Guilds Awards, and a BAFTA award.
