Winona Ryder growing older gracefully

Winona Ryder thinks people who fear ageing are "nuts".

The pretty actress has been in the film industry for years, starring in Tim Burton's movie Beetlejuice when she was just 17.

Winona will be celebrating her forty-first birthday later this month, but insists she doesn't worry about growing older.

"I think that all this insistence that you shouldn't get older is nuts - it's a part of our existence that make us more human," she told the latest edition of Italian magazine Io Donna.

"I always refused the idea that ageing is something that we have to fight. On the contrary, for me it is welcome."

Winona has reunited with Burton for the director's latest animated offering, Frankenweenie, where she lends her voice to the character of Elsa Van Helsing.

Despite her involvement in the film, she insists working isn't the most important thing in her life.

"Working is no longer a priority for me… Maybe it's because I have been acting since I was 12, but now I just want to enjoy life and focus on other things," she explained.
