Generation X might feel this in their gut: Someone had the audacity to once say, “OK, Boomer,” to Winona Ryder. Granted, she didn’t know what they were talking about. Ryder admits that her young “Stranger Things” co-stars usually are the ones making her hip to modern slang.

“The kids just explained who ‘stan’ is, by the way – like to stan something. Stan is a fan,” she says proudly. “Forever, I was like, ‘Who’s Stan?’ So I am in the know there, even though it makes no sense to me. In a way, I think I’m lucky that I don’t know what is an insult.”

On the horror-tinged Netflix show (premiering its fourth season Friday), Ryder, 50, is “Stranger Things” main mom Joyce Byers, fresh off a move from Hawkins, Indiana, to California when she embarks on a globe-trotting adventure. But the actress – who had a breakout role as goth teen Lydia Deetz in 1988’s “Beetlejuice” and then starred in seminal films such as “Heathers” and “Reality Bites” – is also the pop-culture matriarch for a series that wears its 1980s influences on its jean-jacket sleeve.
