Winona Ryder got her revenge on a school bully when they asked her for an autograph as an adult.
The American actress has revealed she was beaten up and taunted by bullies who said she looked like a boy when she was at middle school.
However, Winona got her own back years later when one asked her for an autograph and she told her to "go f**k yourself".
The 34-year-old star told Ticket newspaper: "I was wearing an old Salvation Army shop boy's suit. As I went to the bathroom I heard people saying, 'Hey, faggot'. They slammed my head into a locker. I fell to the ground and they started to kick the s**t out of me. I had to have stitches. The school kicked me out, not the bullies.
"Years later, I went to a coffee shop and I ran into one of the girls who'd kicked me, and she said, 'Winona, Winona, can I have your autograph?' And I said, 'Do you remember me? Remember in seventh grade you beat up that kid?' And she said, 'Kind of'. And I said, 'That was me. Go f*** yourself.'"
In 2002, Winona was convicted of grand theft and vandalism, and around a month after the conviction the depressed star was put on suicide watch.
The 'Mermaids' actress is now re-launching her career and is currently promoting new movie 'A Scanner Darkly', which also stars Keanu Reeves.

I guess revenge could feel really good after you are jumped in the 7th grade for your clothes then they want your autograph. I cant blame her for being so harsh. I remember her getting into trouble for stealing but I thought she said she was doing it for a role so I wasnt sure what to think. Either way everyone makes mistakes and she is a very talented actress now and should be proud of her accomplishments.
