Winona Ryder has insisted she is "proud" of her wrinkles, revealing she has experienced peer pressure to succumb to cosmetic surgery.

The 41-year-old actress posed for a cover shoot for Interview magazine and revealed she has found cosmetic surgery is common place in the film industry now.

Winona said: "It's funny, because I went straight from the Interview shoot to this premiere, and I still had on all the make-up, and my friend told me that some people were literally saying that I'd had work done - which, by the way, I've found is normal hygiene now on sets.

"I'm not trying to knock it, but, you know, I have a little bit of traffic now on my forehead - which I'm very proud of actually - and it's interesting how people just instinctively are like, 'Oh, maybe you should get something done for that.' And it's like, 'Really?'"

The A Scanner Darkly star also opened up about her experience when she was caught shoplifting in 2001, and revealed she actually felt it had had a positive effect on her life.

Winona said: "That thing that happened, I was starting to have some trouble before that.

"I think a lot of people think that that is what sort of sent me off in another direction, but I was actually starting to have some trouble a few years before.

"I did come up against what felt like a wall. And with what happened... I really needed the time off, which ended up being a couple of years.

"In a weird way, it was almost like the best thing that could have happened because I'd never asked myself the question before of, 'Is it okay if I'm not going to act? Is there anything else?' because that was all that I really knew."
