Christina Ricci: Wild, Tattooed, Almost Naked

By February 19, 2007

Follow me on:

Seven years ago, at the tender age of twenty-one, Christina Ricci starred in the art house film The Man Who Cried. She had re-teamed with actor and friend Johnny Depp for the first time since Sleepy Hollow. The two had first met on the set of Mermaids--when Ricci was eight. Filming their sex scene, therefore, was a little bit strange. "We were rooting around like pigs," she joked in our 2000 interview

That phrase came to mind when I first looked at the stills from Ricci's soon to be released new film Black Snake Moan. Craig Brewer's follow-up to Hustle and Flow tells the story of a God-fearing bluesman (Samuel Jackson) who takes a wild, tattooed, and nearly naked Christina Ricci into his home and chains her to a radiator--supposedly to cure her of her sins. Eek! The photos are disturbing, to say the least.

A former child star, Ricci has appeared in forty-seven films, many of them good ones, including the cult hits The Ice Storm, Buffalo 66, Pecker, and The Opposite of Sex. She played Charlize Theron's manipulative lesbian lover in Monster and had guest stints in numerous television programs, including the hit show Grey's Anatomy. She'll be seen next in Penelope, a modern day fairytale produced by Reese Witherspoon. Hopefully, the talented Ricci, whose career is clearly a work-in-progress, will be allowed to put on some clothes. [Posted by Marcy.]
