Finn Wolfhard says it's 'insane' that he can just ask Winona Ryder about her famous ex-boyfriends

Finn Wolfhard says it's 'insane' that he can just ask Winona Ryder about her famous ex-boyfriends

"She’s a homebody and doesn’t care about being relevant either. She just wants to be fulfilled"

Finn Wolfhard says it's 'insane' that he can just ask his Stranger Things co-star Winona Ryder about her famous ex-boyfriends.

As the 20-year-old actor gears up to film the final season of Netflix's hit sci-fi show, he's opened up about his bright future in the world of acting and the struggle with balancing growing up in the spotlight.

Speaking with GQ, Wolfhard described how, just like him, the rest of the cast have got 'their own quests in real life' as they look at what's next in their careers.

The young star, who recently starred alongside Julianne Moore in Jesse Eisenberg’s dramedy When You Finish Saving the World, explained that the Stranger Things stars who grew up on the show together are like family.

"We’re not on everyday-text vibes in any way, and not because... it’s like, do you text your cousins every day? Probably not," he told the outlet.

"They’re our family. We’ll talk on each other’s birthdays. We’ll talk once in a while. But in the same way that family works, if I ever needed anything, they’re there."

Wolfhard went on to say that Ryder, who has become somewhat of a mentor to the group, is 'one of the funniest texters ever' as she'll 'text you and then you’ll text her back and then she won’t text you ever again'.

He added: "She’ll text you whatever, say something like, 'Oh, have you ever seen this movie?' And I’ll be like, 'No, I haven’t. How are you?' And then just, nothing."

Doesn't everyone do this? Pretty damn relatable if you ask me.

Either way, Ryder's a pretty cool person to have in your life, not least because of her extensive career in some of the biggest movies of the 90s including Tim Burton classics such as Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice.

Wolfhard, in particular, finds her past life fascinating and is grateful that she's open about some of the famous musicians she dated or knew in decades prior.

"She dated Dave Grohl and MCA from Beastie Boys, and all these people," he said.

The Beetlejuice star also dated Johnny Depp in the 90s.

"I could literally ask her what it was like knowing Kurt Cobain, and she just tells me everything. It’s insane."

He continued: "She is awesome too, because she just lives with her partner at her house. She doesn’t go out.

"She’s a homebody and doesn’t care about being relevant either. She just wants to be fulfilled."

Between being a bad texter and not giving a crap about what people think about her, those two facts alone make the 51-year-old star one of the coolest people in Hollywood.
