Candid and Controversial Petite
This highly skilled actress and director is known as candid and sometimes controversial around Hollywood. In 2001 she was presented “Best Kiss” with scene partner Ashton Kutcher
at the MTV Movie Awards. For her highly controversial performance in the movie “Monster”
she was personally thanked by co-star Charlize Theron
at the 2004 Academy Awards. Ricci, has several new movies currently in production, including the Civil War era drama, “War Flowers.”
PURE CHRISTINA RICCI
Here’s what Christina has to say about height, sexuality and being a bad girl!
- On being just five feet tall: “Because I’m small, a lot of what I call ‘theoretical clothing’—high-concept, architectural stuff—doesn’t work on me.”
- On being sexual in front of the camera: “I’m totally comfortable being raw and emotional in front of people. Being sexual is harder.”
- On being a bad girl: “You can be a bad girl and still be a nice person. Who says the two are mutually exclusive?”
And, yes you better believe she likes her “Manazons”! Last year she was engaged to 6’6″ actor Owen Benjamin, her co-star in the movie “All’s Faire in Love”. She has since replaced him with a new “manazon” photographer, 6’0″ Curtis Buchanan. No word yet if there are wedding bells in their future!
