Christina Ricci Suffers For Her Art

Wacky starlet CHRISTINA RICCI has done all manner of bizarre things in her fascinating career - but none of them compared to the S&M nudity she pulled off for new film PROZAC NATION (2000).

The busty brunette has starred in some of Hollywood's stranger offerings, from Addams Family, The (1991) and SLEEPY HOLLOW (1999) to OPPOSITE OF SEX, The (1998). But her starring role in the film, based on ELIZABETH WURTZEL's cult novel, took her to a new level. She explains,

"I did my first nude scene. There are 50 people watching you and you're just thinking, 'I hope my a** looks good. ' In the scene, I was tied to a chair and all my clothes were stripped off me. But I decided I had to do it because it was important for the movie. " (NFA/WNWCPS)
