In an interview in an upcoming issue of Porter magazine, Winona Ryder opened up about the most infamous thing to happen to her since she ruthlessly murdered a clique of high school girls, each of them named Heather.

Oh right, that was just a movie.

“Psychologically, I must have been at a place where I just wanted to stop,” the “Stranger Things” star said of that time she was busted for shoplifting from Saks Fifth Avenue in 2001. “I won’t get into what happened, but it wasn’t what people think. And it wasn’t like the crime of the century! But it allowed me time that I really needed, where I went back to San Francisco and got back into things that… I just had other interests, frankly.”

The actress took a hiatus following her $4,760-bust, but has since made a resurgence with her spooky new Netflix original series and rumors of a “Beetlejuice” sequel on the horizon. But even with that, Ryder stays hush.

“Well, I don’t know [if there will be a second ‘Beetlejuice’],” she told Porter. “Movies are all big franchise superhero things, and I’m 44 – I don’t think anyone wants to put a cape on me and chuck me out the window! I don’t know how good my bone density is!”

Ryder’s full interview with Porter will be available on newstands and through iTunes Aug. 5.
