THE DILEMMA

With two Oscar® nominations and a Golden Globe Award to her credit, WINONA RYDER (Geneva) hails as one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents and classic beauties.

Ryder can currently be seen in Darren Aronofsky's supernatural thriller Black Swan, opposite Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis. Ryder will lend her voice to Tim Burton's stop-motion animated film Frankenweenie. The film is a feature-length adaptation of the live-action short film Burton directed in 1984. Martin Landau, Martin Short and Catherine O'Hara also star. Walt Disney Pictures is slated to release the film on March 9, 2012.

She was previously seen in Rebecca Miller's The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, opposite Robin Wright, Alan Arkin, Keanu Reeves and Julianne Moore, and in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek, starring Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban and Eric Bana.

As Jo March in Gillian Armstrong's highly acclaimed version of the Louisa May Alcott classic "Little Women,” Ryder received an Academy Award® nomination for Best Actress. The previous year, she received an Oscar® nomination and won the Golden Globe and National Board of Review awards for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Martin Scorsese's The Age of Innocence. Ryder also received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress for Richard Benjamin's Mermaids.

In 1999, Ryder starred in and served as executive producer on the critically acclaimed Girl, Interrupted, based on the best-selling memoir, directed by James Mangold. While the film marked Ryder's first feature as executive producer, she previously produced the documentary The Day My God Died, which depicted the human story behind the modern tragedy of child sex trafficking in India.

Noted for constantly challenging herself with each project, Ryder has worked with some of the most acclaimed directors in film today, including Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Alien: Resurrection), Woody Allen (Celebrity), Nicholas Hytner (The Crucible), Bille August (The House of the Spirits), Francis Ford Coppola (Bram Stoker's Dracula), Jim Jarmusch (Night on Earth), Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice), Michael Lehmann (Heathers), Ben Stiller (Reality Bites), Al Pacino (Looking for Richard), Joan Chen (Autumn in New York), Jocelyn Moorhouse (How to Make an American Quilt), David Wain (The Ten) and Richard Linklater (A Scanner Darkly).

On television, Ryder lent her voice both to The Simpsons and Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist. She also narrated a Grammy-nominated album, "Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl.” Additionally, Ryder appeared in the season finale episode of Strangers With Candy and on an episode of Friends. In 1997, Ryder was honored with ShoWest's Female Star of the Year and the Motion Picture Club's Female Star of the Year, and also received an honorary degree from San Francisco's American Conservatory Theater. She served as a juror for the 51st Annual Cannes Film Festival under Martin Scorsese and received the Peter J. Owens Award at the 2000 San Francisco Film Festival. Ryder was also honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Ryder served on the board of trustees to the American Indian College Fund, which helps Native Americans preserve and protect their culture through education. She has been very involved with the KlaasKids Foundation for Children since the organization's inception in 1994.
