Winona Ryder is just bizarre anymore, if you ask me. And since you are reading, you did ask me. Anyways, last week she took too many Xanax on a flight and collapsed. This week, she merely lost $125 of Bulgari jewelry. I guess they let her borrow it. If history teaches us one thing about Winona, she doesn’t really know the definition of the term borrow.
Sticky-fingered actress Winona Ryder mysteriously lost a diamond-encrusted bracelet and ring worth more than $125,000, according to a published report.
Ryder told Bulgari jewelers that she misplaced their gems, which had been out on loan, after wearing them at a Marie Claire bash in Madrid on Sunday, according to the French celebrity-news magazine Voici.
The “Girl, Interrupted” star – convicted in 2002 of shoplifting in Beverly Hills – claimed she lost the precious stones after handing them in an envelope to her hotel’s front desk for safe keeping.
But Voici reported no hotel surveillance cameras captured Ryder giving the jewels to front-desk personnel.
Bulgari has asked police in Madrid to investigate, according to Voici.
A representative for the actress did not return phone and e-mail messages seeking comment last night.
A US-based spokeswoman for the famed Italian jeweler confirmed that the company had loaned gems to Marie Claire magazine for event organizers to then lend to celebrity partygoers.
The Bulgari representative declined to discuss Ryder or say whether any jewels were missing.
Anyone spending Christmas morning at the Ryder residence should warn the kids to padlock the stockings this year. Things may get borrowed…
