a Golden Globe and Emmy Award-nominated American actress. Ricci made her acting debut at age 10, starring with Cher and Winona Ryder in the 1990 film Mermaids, followed by a small role in 1992's The Hard Way. Her breakout role was as the dark 12-year-old Wednesday Addams in the successful The Addams Family film (1991) and its sequel, Addams Family Values (1993), where she received commercial attention and critical praise.
As an adult, Ricci began appearing in more mature roles after 1997's The Ice Storm, going on to successfully emerge out of her status as a child star, starring in a string of critically acclaimed independent films, such as The Opposite of Sex (1998), for which she received a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role (Comedy) and Pumpkin (2002). She also starred in major blockbusters such as Sleepy Hollow (1999) and Monster (2004).
Ricci has endured a status as a child star, teenage idol and today has emerged as a mature leading lady, dividing roles between independent films and mainstream blockbusters, and currently holds her own production company, Blaspheme Films, responsible for Pumpkin and Prozac Nation. Ricci has recently appeared in Black Snake Moan (2007) and Penelope (2007), and has a confirmed female lead role in the upcoming The Wachowski Brothers' feature film adaptation of Speed Racer, in 2008.
I just watched the film 'Black Snake Moan', starring Christina Ricci, and it's really quite good.
A very sexy
, actress who played Wednesday Adams in the movie version, as well as some other fun roles.
Hoorah for Christina Ricci!
Christina Ricci is one of my Hollywood crushes.
A child actress of the 90's, who remained looking like a child throughout her whole life. She has a massive forehead, and looks truly horrible. She was good as Wednesday Adams, but then her acting went waayyy down. Just look at her in Sleepy Hollow
. That was an excellent movie with great actors (especially Johnny Depp
), but she was very much below all of them. She really couldn't act for shit in that movie. And she was very damn lucky to play roles opposite Johnny Depp in 3 movies (Sleepy Hollow, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
, and The Man Who Cried
Wow! Christina Ricci is one ugly girl!
