'''Christina Ricci''' is a FormerChildStar, and now respected actress in her own right. Ricci acted in such movies as ''Mermaids'' (alongside {{Music/Cher}} and WinonaRyder), ''Film/TheAddamsFamily'' motion pictures, ''Film/{{Casper}}'', and as an adult in ''Film/TheOppositeOfSex'', ''{{Buffalo 66}}'', ''Film/SleepyHollow'', ''Film/{{Monster}}'', the remake of ''Film/ThatDarnCat'', ''Film/SpeedRacer'', ''New York, I Love You'', and ''Film/AfterLife''. Also starred as SexyStewardess Maggie on ''Series/PanAm''.
----
!!Her acting roles provide examples of:
* CreepyChild: As Wednesday Addams.
* DeadpanSnarker: In films, she's played such characters, especially Wednesday Addams. In real life, she's notorious for saying scathing and taboo things to screw with annoying, invasive journalists during her young adult years.
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: In her child actress days.
* DyeingForYourArt: While best known as a brunette, many of her most important roles have been [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold blo]][[BlondesAreEvil nd]]: [[Film/SleepyHollow Katrina]], [[Film/TheOppositeOfSex DeeDee]], [[BlackSnakeMoan Rae]] and [[{{Buffalo66}} Layla]]. Also compare her voluptuous curves as Layla, Katrina and Deedee with her gaunt, skinny frame in BlackSnakeMoan.
* FemmeFatale: In ''Film/TheOppositeOfSex'' and ''BlackSnakeMoan''.
* FilleFatale
* {{Goth}}
* LittleRedRidingHood: Played the title role in a very dark take on the tale in the black-and-white short early in her career.
* MsFanservice: She is nowadays.
* MysteriousWaif
* PerkyGoth: Has this reputation since playing Wednesday Addams, but insists that it does not apply to her out of character.
* TheRival: In her child acting days she was both this and a DistaffCounterpart to [[HomeAlone Macaulay Culkin]]. As she got older, Christina on several occasions found herself being offered roles that NataliePortman had for one reason or another (usually her schooling) turned down; rather than be insulted, Ricci chose to view it as a plus that if Portman was unavailable, she was the second choice.
** Another rival of her younger years was KirstenDunst, the blonde beauty to whom she lost coveted roles as [[LittleWomen Amy March]] and [[InterviewWithTheVampire Claudia]], as well as being turned down four times for the role of {{Lolita}} to an [[DominiqueSwain unknown]], and was deemed to old to play Enid in ''GhostWorld''.
* SheIsAllGrownUp
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: See the roles she missed out on above.
