Winona guided by ghosts

Winona Ryder claims dead family members guide her. She explains, “I do believe in spirits. I often feel like someone is guiding me. I had a lot of family members who died in the Holocaust, in the camps. My grandmother is still alive and she has a lot of letters and pictures of relatives and there’s this one particular relative of mine who was my age when she died. She was a great violinist and actress and looked a lot like me. I think she is the one.” Although Winona never met the relative, she often feels her presence while she is on film sets. She adds “I have had this feeling that she was sometimes there with me and guiding me with performances. I never got to know her. It’s a supernatural thing.” [26 September 2006]
