Christina Ricci – who we will see in the highly anticipated series Wednesday from November 23 on Netflix – has always been very private about her private life. Her transition into adulthood has seen her choose edgier roles than in the past, perhaps as a reaction to an upbringing she describes as “chaotic”. If for many years her sensitivity and being in tune with certain emotions helped her career, later the actress found herself having to exclude her feelings. “It was exhausting always being so upset and in pain” he claims. This led her to take “many important decisions in a completely dispassionate way, which ended up being a problem”.
Everything changed with motherhood: the birth of her first son, Freddie, 8 years ago was fundamental for the actress as “it broke my nihilism and it was a pretty amazing change”Ricci declares to the Sunday Times Style.
