Winona Ryder - Winona Ryder Hates Bras

Winona Ryder hates wearing bras.

The 39-year-old actress admits one of her biggest fashion mistakes came when she refused to wear underwear underneath the lace dress she wore in 'Reality Bites' because she finds the garments too restrictive.

She said: "I made the huge mistake of not wearing a bra. When we were trying it on I wasn't moving around.

"I was young and bras give me backache, you know? The first thing I do when I get home is take off my bra - but I did sort of regret it because I didn't realise how it was going to look."

Though Winona hates wearing bras, she was happy to don a tight-fitting corset for her role in 'The Age of Innocence' as it put her in the right frame of mind for the film.

She explained to Total Film magazine: "The corsets are a tremendous help to the performance, because you're playing a repressed person and you can feel the pain they endured.

"My waist had to be 19 inches and they had to measure me every day. I would be on the floor and they would pull the strings until it was 19 inches.

"But if I did it again I would want it the same way because it made me performance."
