8. Winona Ryder
Winona Ryder had colorful parents, which might explain the name of her cult “Rainbow Commune.” Her folks belonged to the 1960s counterculture elite. Her father is Michael Horowitz, friend to beat poet Allen Ginsberg and LSD guru Timothy Leary (incidentally Winona’s godfather.) In her early childhood, Winona’s family went to live with seven other families on a commune in Northern California. There, they had no electricity or television sets. The eight families attempted to live self-sufficiently off of the 300 acre plot of land. In other words, not only was the Winona Ryder raised in a cult, she belonged to a cult that her parents formed. After a few years, her family moved on from the Rainbow Commune and Winona became able to audition in earnest.
