She has a look all her own, and the attitude to match: She’s Christina Ricci, and she’s been growing up onscreen–and chewing the scenery opposite some big names and imposing presences, indeed—since the early 1990s! Her unconventional beauty and charismatic, wry humor have served her well in both fictional roles and those based on real-life women and girls, and she has worked with a veritable who’s-who of subversive, acclaimed auteurs like Tim Burton, Vincent Gallo, and Ang Lee. In this video, we take a stand and put ourselves firmly in Christina’s corner, laying out our love for this talented actress and her iconoclastic charms!
