Actor Winona Ryder is dreading her upcoming 40th birthday because because people have told her it would mark a downturn in her career, reports“I’m at that age I’ve been warned my whole life about,” she said.

But she is determined to follow in the footsteps of her idol Meryl Streep, who has carved out a stellar career in her later years despite feeling abandoned by Hollywood in her late 30s.

“It’s hard to imagine a time where Meryl Streep wasn’t the first choice for everything, but I was reading some article, and she said something like, ‘Yeah, when I was around 38, 39, I turned to my husband and said, ‘Should we just call it a day, or should we try to kick the can down the road?’’ said Ryder.
