Winona Ryder joins Darren Aronofsky's 'Black Swan' as an aging ballerina forced to relinquish the lead in 'Swan Lake' to a younger, hotter up-and-comer: Natalie Portman. Ryder can't miss the irony of that casting call.

In the '90s, Ryder scored back-to-back Oscar nominations -- but since being famously eclipsed by then rising star Angelina Jolie in 2000's 'Girl, Interrupted' (which earned Jolie a Best Supporting Actress Oscar), Ryder's career has been on the back burner. (The whole shoplifting thing probably didn't help, either.)
