Actress Winona Ryder feels lucky to have started her career in the 1980s when there was no Internet and no paparazzi following her.

She wonders whether she would have been able to cope with fame the way actresses Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence do. 

"I have to say, I really wonder if I would become an actress if I was their age now. I've only seen part of 'Twilight', but I've seen their other work and they're both super-talented. I don't know how they do it, though, in just trying to maintain some degree of a personal life and privacy," quoted her as saying.

"I do feel so lucky that I got to get in at least 15 years pre-whatever that show is called where they follow you around and then put it on the Internet. That stuff just didn't exist before," added the 41-year-old actress.
