Christina Ricci's Anorexic Flash Backs

23 March 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Christina Ricci hated slimming down for Prozac Nation because it reminded her of her anorexic past. After appearing as Wednesday Addams in the Addams Family movies, Christina developed into a gorgeously sexy, voluptuous 14-year-old. Studio chiefs told her to lose the pounds because audiences preferred to see "cheeks ultra hollow". Christina remembers, "All I ate was green salad, I looked like ET my head was so big. I thought if I could be skinnier, I could be more successful. But that's silly because I was successful. I hated looking at myself and covered up the mirrors at home." Slimming down to play an antidepressant-addicted college student in Prozac Nation brought back her horrific memories. She admits, "I lost weight to the point where I couldn't buy clothes. The role really affected me because my character was having a nervous breakdown. After a month I was a wreck. I wasn't eating, I couldn't sleep, my moods were up and down." »
