Who is Christina Ricci?

Christina Ricci is a famous American actress who started her career at an early age and established herself as a child star. She started her film career at the age of nine and though she never had any formal acting training she impressed everyone with her acting skills. Unlike many child actors who are unable to establish themselves in adult roles, Christina Ricci faced no such difficulty. Her first adult role at the age of 17 established her acting credibility and she went on to act in several large-budget films thereafter. She has performed on Broadway and has also acted in television serials and onstage as well. She has also tried her hand in directing movies. She is a self-confessed non-stop shopper and is known to have made several extravagant fashion purchases.
