Troubled movie star WINONA RYDER was last night (20th December 2001) on suicide watch after checking into a psychiatric ward.
Ryder, who was charged last week (13th December 2001) with alleged shoplifting from Beverly Hills store Saks Fifth Avenue, booked herself into the psychiatric wing of the famous Cedars Sinai hospital in Beverly Hills where she is being given careful round- the-clock care.
A hospital employee says, "Staff feared she was unstable and ordered her to be put on suicide watch. Winona's in bad shape. " The star is due to be arraigned on 11 January (2002). (LE/WNTST/ES)
