We haven't seen her in a magazine for a long time!
Christina Ricci has landed on the front of BlackBook's October obsessions issue giving the world a glimpse of what's up her nose.
Luckily the inside spread is MUCH better than the cover with a lot of boob grabbing and fierce high fashion poses.
The actress also dished to the magazine about her life past and present.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On her eating disorder as a teenager:
"I had been really anorexic until I was like 16. They were going to hospitalize me, and I was worried about people force-feeding me through a tube. I didn’t want that, so I fought the disease. I still think about it, but I could never do it again. I remember the overwhelming feeling of hopelessness when I was in the middle of it. My brain had basically become my biggest tormentor. I’d become afraid of myself. I was outed in a magazine article when I was, like, 17, even though I’d been in recovery for about a year. The interviewer talked to a producer, who, being a total jerk, said I wasn’t eating on set. I think that was the thing that caused me to be ridiculously open about everything, so that I never again felt ashamed or embarrassed, or like someone was holding something over me."
On her rebellious past:
I wasn’t very… marketable back then,” she says, laughing. “I always said crazy shit. I was living in New York, and I was uncomfortable and angry. I was going clubbing all the time, partying with Chloë Sevigny and the cool kids. I woke up one day when I was 19, and it was like I hadn’t seen the sun forever. So I moved to L.A., where it was okay to be responsible, so that I’d stop acting like a crazy maniac.
On her new movie Bel Ami, co-starring Robert Pattinson:
"I read the book when I was 13. It was one of my tutor’s favorite stories, so there was a lot of discussion about it my entire life. Getting the part was one of those things that made me sort of believe in…well, fate. But, yeah, Rob’s fans are crazy. We filmed in London, and they were always around base camp, gathered at the barriers."
She sure has come a long way from playing Wednesday Addams, don't U think???
