christina ricci for BlackBook

i've liked Christina Ricci ever since she played Wednesday in the Addams Family Values in 1993 ("and for all these reasons I have decided to scalp you and burn your village to the ground"), and Now and Then (such a classic). i totally dig her indie darkness. here are some images from her new BlackBook shoot. i'm sure the accompanying interview will be a good read, too. she was photographed by matthew rolston. issue available at newsstands april 21st.

some wikipedia facts on her:

Ricci owns her own production company, Blaspheme Films, responsible for Prozac Nation and Pumpkin.

Ricci maintains a close friendship with former child star and actress Gaby Hoffmann, with whom she starred in Now and Then and 200 Cigarettes. She is also a friend of Black Snake Moan co-star Samuel L. Jackson.[4]

After making the top of PETA's worst-dressed list[17] and receiving a letter from the animal rights group, Ricci decided to give up wearing fur.[18] Ricci also owns two dogs (The Sheriff Steve Goldburg and Buzz Goldicci).

In 2004, Ricci appeared as the first model in the Spring/ Summer 2005 Louis Vuitton show, and also appeared in advertisements for the popular French fashion house that year.

In April 2007, Ricci became the national spokesperson for RAINN, the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network for the United States, which assists victims of these crimes and promotes programs that help prevent them from occurring. She cited some of her research in Black Snake Moan role as educational on the importance of the issues that RAINN deals with.

She has cited Pulp Fiction, Lord of the Rings, Gangs of New York, and My Own Private Idaho as her favorite films. She drives a Porsche Boxster. Her favorite musicians are the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Petty, The Ramones, R.E.M., The White Stripes, Weezer, and the Pixies.[4]

Ricci also has many tattoos: a lion on her right shoulder blade (a reference to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, a favorite novel of hers as a child), a fairy on the inside of her right wrist, praying hands on her left hip (this tattoo was originally a bat), a bouquet of sweetpeas on her lower back, the words "Move or Bleed" on the left side of her ribcage, the name "Jack" on her right thigh for a dead pet, a sparrow on her right breast, and a mermaid on her left ankle.

She is currently dating Australian actor Christopher "Kick" Gurry who she met on the set of Speed Racer.[19]
