It’s not like the woman hasn’t paid her dues. Winona Ryder did 480 hours of community service to atone for that little shoplifting mishap (the $7,600 worth of Saks duds she lifted in 2001 — oopsy!), and still the actress endures discrimination — now from enviros, of all people.
Ryder says she wanted to sign a petition calling on Bush to get behind the Kyoto Protocol but was turned away because of her criminal record. No word on which green group did the spurning — last we heard, enviros weren’t rebuffing any would-be signers from their go-nowhere petitions, let alone celebs, even of the has-been variety.
Come make your voice heard on the virtual pages of Gristmill, Winona. We won’t turn you away!
