  8. More on this film
We asked readers to nominate the all-time greatest Winona-moments, and here are the results, with suggestions from@KIRSTYSTRAIN‏@Marshy00@Fine_Life,@cyberjohnboy and ‏@ajeastwood.
Adult content and major spoilers feature in all these clips – but what's missing from the list that should have been featured? Let us know in the comment thread below.

1. Black Swan

Winona apparently felt she had to apologise to Natalie Portman after the filming of Darren Aronofsky's ballet melodrama, feeling bad about the vitriolic dialogue her character spits at Portman's. Still, it made for great viewing.

2. The Crucible

Arthur Miller's take on the Salem witch trials, a response to the House Un-American Activities Committee's activities in the 50s, stars Winona as the initial, vengeful accuser Abigail Williams.

3. Edward Scissorhands

Donning a blonde wig, Winona was perfectly cast opposite Johnny Depp as the love interest in Tim Burton's highly–stylised Frankenstein-update.

4. Beetlejuice

Her second film, and her first with Tim Burton, Winona was the alienated goth teen and friend-to-the-dead who inspired a generation of kohl abusers.

5. Heathers

Here's the last five minutes of the best high school movie of the 80s bar none ('arguably', we probably ought to say, despite this being 100% a fact) – so if you've not already seen the whole film, you'd probably better skip this clip. Features an extremely novel method for lighting a cigarette.
