Women We Love: Christina Ricci

Object of our affection: Christina Ricci, actress.

- At age ten, she made her film debut upstaging Cher and Winona Ryder in Mermaids, and then went on to steal The Addams Family movies from the likes of Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston.

- Hitting her tween years, she paid her dues in such family friendly fare as Casper, Gold Diggers: The Secret of Bear Mountain and That Darn Cat, and played a younger version of Rosie O'Donnell in Now and Then.

- She grew up fast with challenging roles in Bastard Out of Carolina, The Ice Storm, Buffalo '66, Sleepy Hollow, Black Snake Moan and her Golden Globe nominated performance in The Opposite of Sex.

- Other notable films on her résumé include such other gay faves as John Waters' Pecker (hee hee), All Over the Guy, The Laramie Project and Monster.

- This week, she revs the engine of our hero Speed Racer as his gal pal Trixie.
