Winona Ryder: Marc Jacobs is a fashion maestro

Beetlejuice actress Winona Ryder loves that Marc Jacobs never rips off anyone else's work when he designs his collections.

Actress Winona Ryder loves the way Marc Jacobs works.

The two are firm friends, with the famed designer casting Winona in his campaign in June (15), 12 years after they first collaborated. Winona also sat front row at Marc's New York Fashion Week show in September (15). Talking about their relationship, Winona explains their shared love of retro pieces keeps the bond strong.

"I wear a lot of vintage stuff," Winona told Details magazine. "I have a huge vintage collection. Marc's someone who has been a friend for a long time, and I love the way he acknowledges and pays homage to different time periods - I appreciate that. He and I have a history. He's an incredibly generous person. I really appreciate our relationship. When he does a collection, he's not ripping others off, he's doing a homage, and there's such a big difference, and I respect that."

Winona has made a career comeback of late, adding TV shows as well as films to her impressive résumé. The 43-year-old can next be seen in series Stranger Things, and she has also got fans excited with the news Beetlejuice 2 will hit cinemas in the not too distant future.

The cult film was released in 1988, and despite nearly 30 years passing, Winona barely looks a day older.

"My grandmother, she lived to be 101!" she grinned of her fountain of youth. "I remember she visited the sets of a couple of my movies early on, and my leading men all thought she was, like, 50! She always used to say to me, 'Use soap and water, soap and water.'

"I guess it's genetics. I try to keep it simple. I'm actually quite terrible at putting on make-up, which you'd think I'd be good at after all these years. I just clean my face and stay out of the sun."
