Winona Ryder and Robert Trujillo

Winona Ryder has always had a soft spot for rock stars, and it looks as if she loves playing the part as well. The hook up was due to Metallica regrouping for her new film The Darwin Awards, co-starring Joseph Fiennes and Wilmer Valderrama.

The cast members from the movie watched Metallica’s hour long performance, but one cast member who wasn’t there was actor Chris Penn, who was found dead earlier in the week.

Metallica singer James Hetfield made mention of Penn saying “He could not physically be with us, but his spirit is here.”

In a bizarre twist, the movie is about people who accidentally kill themselves in really stupid ways.
