And in couples news. Rock ’n’ roll muse Winona Ryder (Lost Souls) and Rilo Kiley guitarist Blake Sennett (Salute Your Shorts) are engaged to be married, according to Getty blog (thanks Kelly for the tip). This is exciting news because everyone likes Winona Ryder, and Blake Sennet makes us think about Jenny Lewis. Also? Winona Ryder dated, like, half our CD collection. An exclusive photo of the short-lived supergroup comprised of Winona’s rock ’n’ roll ex-boyfriends after the jump. Congrats, kids.

  5. wilceaux  |   Posted on Feb 29th, 2008 -1

    Pretty sure Tweedy had a little thing going on with her back in the day as well.

    She’d be an Oscar winner or something if she took the sweater puppies out like 10 years ago.

    she got with jack white?

  12. Sal  |   Posted on Mar 1st, 2008 0

    Okay, there’s a couple of guys I don’t recognise there. I see Dave Pirner, Pete Yorn, Conor Oberst, Jack White, Adam Duritz, Dave Grohl and Beetlejuice, obviously. But who are the other guys? And seriously, she dated Tweedy too? Do we know this for sure? Damn the girl is good. I know she chased after Paul Westerberg too but he kept running.

  13. Mark  |   Posted on Mar 1st, 2008 0

    Evan Dando at top right.

  14. Michelle  |   Posted on Mar 1st, 2008 0

    Ryan Adams above Dave Pirner, duh!

  15. meg  |   Posted on Mar 1st, 2008 0

    I don’t remember her dating Jack, either.

  16. Ned  |   Posted on Mar 1st, 2008 0

    What about BECK?

  17. Ned  |   Posted on Mar 1st, 2008 0

  19. kevin  |   Posted on Mar 1st, 2008 0

    you forgot william hung!

  20. johnnydepp  |   Posted on Mar 1st, 2008 0

    Steve Malkmus once said, in like 1998, “since when does being a rock star mean you have to sleep with Winona Ryder” – or something to that effect

  21. Please, God, tell me she didn’t date Jack White. I’ve never heard that before. Courtney Love probably made up that rumor.

    “because everyone likes Winona Ryder…” Really?

  22. Steve Sanders  |   Posted on Mar 1st, 2008 0

    You dont seriously believe Winona went out with Tweedy do you?

  23. p.r.  |   Posted on Mar 2nd, 2008 0

    could someone tell me who the guy is in the bigger heart, far right, middle? above the guy with the dreads?

  24. how bout jay kay?

  25. Sal  |   Posted on Mar 2nd, 2008 0

    Sorry, I did recognise Ryan Adams I just forgot to mention him on the list. I didn’t recognise Evan Dando (is that really him?) or Rhett Miller or the guy in the bigger heart PR mentioned (anyone know who that is?). I have to admit I can’t imagine her hooking up with Tweedy.

  26. El Payo  |   Posted on Mar 2nd, 2008 0

    You forgot Poland.

  27. she was dating tweedy around the time wilco was promoting summer teeth and she was promoting… the crucible? something like that. she was gushing about him to conan o’brien.

  28. kay.  |   Posted on Mar 2nd, 2008 0

    She never dated Tweedy! Boldfaced lie. He’s been with his wife for forever and a half. They have two kids for crist’s sake. Also, he would not have been a sucker for her indie rock whore ways. I refuse to believe it.

  29. Sam  |   Posted on Mar 2nd, 2008 0

    How could we forget Paul Westerberg?

  30. Stephen  |   Posted on Mar 2nd, 2008 0

    She never landed Westerberg, although it is funny that pretty much every guy she’s been with since then has, in some form or fashion, been influenced by Westerberg, especially Pirner and Adams.

    I think the Tweedy thing came from the aforementioned Conan interview…I think Wilco may have been performing on that show and she was gushing about Tweedy. I’m sure she offered it up to Tweedy…whether he accepted or not is between them, god, and Sue Miller.

    is that Gerard Butler above Counting Crows boffin?

    was he even famous then?

    is he even famous now?

  32. brief  |   Posted on Mar 3rd, 2008 0

    The dude above the Adam Duritz is Stephen Jenkins of Third Eye Blind. (Hang on, didn’t he used to date Charlize Theron? And why do I know these things?)

  33. matt  |   Posted on Mar 3rd, 2008 0

    did she bang les claypool
    or is winona’s big brown beaver just about the fact that she has a huge cooch?

  34. fred  |   Posted on Mar 3rd, 2008 0

    You forgot Billie Joe Armstrong

  35. Katie  |   Posted on Mar 3rd, 2008 0

    I don’t see anywhere in the Getty story that says they’re engaged…

  36. eric  |   Posted on Mar 4th, 2008 0

    she never went out with billie joe armstrong.

  37. ave  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2008 0

    they took the engagement part out of the story (possibly after being told that they were wrong). it used to say something to the effect of Winona announcing her “surprise engagement” to Blake.

  38. Christ  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2008 +1

    I still say Blake Senett looks like a woman who had an operation to look like a man. And yes Winona is a whore.

  39. James  |   Posted on Mar 5th, 2008 0

    You forgot Diablo Cody.

  40. Elliot  |   Posted on Mar 7th, 2008 0

    These are the same people who accuse stereogum of being too tabloid, by the way.

  41. fanzene1  |   Posted on Mar 12th, 2008 +1

    I personally know someone who went out with Blake Sennett as recently as January of this year. And no, it was not Winona Ryder. And no, I’m not making this up. So either Mr. Sennett was two-timing Winona Ryder, or his “relationship” with Winona Ryder happened pretty darn fast!

  42. sarah2000  |   Posted on Mar 19th, 2008 0

    This is crazy! We never actually slept together Brian, I mean, stuff went down, we were intimate. He needed someone, and so did I. I told you all this. We have a connection he just doesn’t have with anyone else. I can’t believe you outed me. Now he’s gonna hate me, no matter what i say. You better not put this up, either.

      if the anonymous person is actually winona, i’m sorry these a-holes said mean things and called u a whore, it’s frankly, immature; i mean, you’re almost 37 years old and your personal life is your business…these people are lonely losers, if u appreciate a musician for their art, and have a relationship or whatever, it’s between you and that person….so stupid, i have been a fan of yours forever, since middle school, when i saw you in lucas, and i really identified with your characters in beetlejuice, heathers, and mermaids, and edward scissorhands when i was in high school and feeling left-out and alienated ( i am a little over two years younger than you)…thank you for giving the world your amazing and bold performances…Little Women was my fave book growing up, loved u and christian bale in that! anyway, i don’t know if u ever lurk on your fansites, just wanted to say hi and tell u that u r awesome and these guys are total dorks who r jealous because they could never get with anyone as pretty or talented or smart as u! i’ve also heard u r a really nice person with a good heart, i can see that…take care and keep being your fab self girlfriend! if they don’t like it, f*** ‘em!
