First of all let me just say that it’s still shocking how Brittany Murphy died from pneumonia or, like, a moldy house??? and not an overdose. She was a true original that way – playing a pillhead like Daisy so convincingly and then dying young HERSELF… but not in the way that everyone would assume. She made ASSes of U and ME in death, and that is original af.
Anyway, this pillhead of the week post is dedicated to her (RIP) and Daisy in “Girl Interrupted”– who just wants the fucking Valium, asshole.
Daisy is creative in where she stores things – her pills, her poop, whatever – and hides pills in her teddy bear like the adult child that she is. (That we all are.)
Winona Ryder is the true representation of a glam movie star in this day and age: the quaalude / barbiturate addiction she would’ve had if she had actually lived in the “Girl, Interrupted” 1960s is, in 2017- Xanax / and whatever designer benzos that spray-tanned Hollywood docs are placing in Wino’s shaky, pale hands so she can sedate herself enough for one or two interviews a year plugging her show. (“Stranger Things”, if you’ve been living under a rock).
Things HAVE been stranger for Ms. Ryder in the past, like her iconic arrest where she was caught with stolen clothes and pills on pills on pills. But the druggie part of that incident has been forgotten about since they were all legally prescribed, and no one seems to mind that she does her, like, two yearly interviews seemingly strung out like a pull-apart chunk of Xanax string cheese. Benzodiazecheese.
Courtney Love claims Winona ‘ruined’ her sobriety by offering her benzos at a Hollywood party, and I believe Courtney. Not that she was ever seriously trying sobriety, of course, but that Wino WOULD stockpile chill pills to hand out to her Hollywood hos, even after run-ins with the law. Because she’s a bad bitch and rules (including that one has to age) do not seem to apply to Ms. Winona Ryder.
SO SAY FUCKING ‘THANK YOU’ NEXT TIME, COURTNEY,
