Happy birthday, Winona!

With starring roles in "Beetlejuice," "Heathers" and "Edward Scissorhands," it's no wonder that Winona Ryder has got a pretty firm handle on sass. Still, it's pretty surprising just how well she's got the cheekiness down; she's got all of us beat, easy.

To celebrate Winona's birthday today (Oct. 29), here are all the times that she achieved a level of sass that us mere mortals can only dream of.

  1. When she perfectly summed up the perils of being in love.
  2. When she knew what every post-college graduate is thinking.
  3. When she acknowledged that we all have flaws.
  4. When she created the perfect combination of the laugh and cry.
