Winona Ryder Still Traumatized by Shoplifting Conviction

Winona Ryder boycotted this month’s Cannes Film Festival because she hasn’t yet recovered from her shoplifting conviction four years ago, according to her co-star Keanu Reeves

Reeves and Robert Downey Jr. were left to promote A Scanner Darkly at the festival without Ryder, who has avoided the limelight since she was found guilty of stealing from a Beverly Hill department store in 2002.

Reeves explains, “Robert and I were speaking of how we miss her and wish she was here because she’s such a delightful person and really good actress.

“But, for her to be here and have to deal with all these other kinds of questions–I don’t know if she’s quite ready to do that.”
