Those of us who grew up on her classic films like Heathers and Reality Bites and see her now keep asking each other the same question: why is it that we keep getting older while Winona Ryder keeps staying the same age? “She hasn’t aged and let me tell you, she has had absolutely nothing done,” her make-up artist on her upcoming film Stay Cool and friend Kim Collea tells PEOPLE. Her secret? “She is a very healthy eater, and I think that is a big part of it,” says Collea. “It sounds boring, but the girl eats a lot of salads. And you know those giant Big Gulps cups that most people fill with soda? She’s got hers filled with water.” As for make-up, Ryder, who famously sported a Gothic look in movies like Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands, has switched to a minimalist and more natural look. “When it comes to Noni, less is always more,” says Collea. “With her I did a mix of Neutrogena, Chanel, and this stuff called Alison Raffaele a natural line. She likes everything to be natural. Her palette is all ivories, and beiges and very light browns.” One thing that hasn’t changed for the Gen-X icon is her knack for the perfect accessory. “She has the most amazing handbags,” says Collea. “Designers send them to her. They are beautiful.” To read more about Ryder’s surprising cameo in Star Trek and the 37-year-old’s new life in Hollywood, check out this week’s issue of PEOPLE. –Oliver Jones

Love Winona and she looks fabulous! Time to get back to natural – salads and water. And her make up is great too!

Winona was NOT goth in Edward Scissorhands. She played a teenage cheerleader, which is basically the opposite of goth.

I’m sorry but in this picture she has lots of wrinkles. And for the body, she hasnt have any children, so this is a reason is not ruined yet.
See the bodies of mid 30’s women with children and without them, you’ll see the difference.

liz on

yeah, she looks beautiful, but she also looks miserable and squeamish. i really wouldn’t change places for her skin.

Taylor on

wasn’t she arrested a couple times for stealing high end items?? she’s crazy , and looks 30 something.Maybe if designers quite sending her bags for free she would get that she still has to pay for everything else.

Sandy on

she looks like a scared mouse. who is old.

lw on

although she looks her age now, she still looks great. im a huge fan of hers – always have been – and it’s nice to see she hasn’t gone the route of botox and fillers. i think we’re all a little shocked to see a real face – with lines! – on an actress.

Positive on

I just saw her in Star Trek and I am sorry but I was shoked to see her looking so old. She looks beautiful but with lots of wrinkles. I wish her the best in her return and I pray that she has overcome her deamons.
