Top Ten Celebrity Excuses for Acting Completely Bat Shit Insane

9. “I was researching for a role!”

Liar: Winona Ryder

Bullshit Meter: 10

When a rich person gets caught shoplifting, it must be super mortifying. When a famous actress like Winona Ryder gets caught, it’s downright bizarre. In 2001, Winona Ryder was caught stealing over $5,000 worth of stuff from Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. When the police asked her, “Um, so why did you take this stuff again?” Winona was all, “I’m researching for a role!” Talk about going method and having a dedication to the craft. I wonder if Winona checked into a mental institution in preparation for Girl, Interrupted. Or went into space for her cameo in Star Trek.
