Wynter, once referred to as Hollywood's "oasis of elegance," divided her time between her homes in California and Glendalough, County Wicklow, Ireland. An anti-apartheid advocate, she refused to open a performance center because she discovered that black and white children would have to attend on alternate days.

In the late 1980s, Wynter authored the column "Grassroots" for the newspaper The Guardian in London. Writing in both Ireland and California, her works concentrated mainly on life in both locations leading her to use the titles Irish Eyes and California Eyes for a number of her publications.
