Christina Ricci has her rebellious character to thank for saving her from a tight spot.
The former Addams Family star plays an air stewardess in new TV drama Pam Am and she didnâ€™t have the constraints of her fellow trolley dollies.
â€œMy character refuses to wear a corset very often and gets in trouble all the time so I donâ€™t wear them as much as the other girls do,â€ explains Christina.
â€œItâ€™s good because Iâ€™m older than the rest of the girls, so I have to watch my weight a little bit more.â€
Ricci recently admitted she sees maintaining her figure as a pressure she, not the industry, puts on herself.
â€œIâ€™ve been doing this for a really long time and I used to hate feeling insecure. Itâ€™s the worst feeling in the world. So, I do a lot of things in advance so that I know I wonâ€™t have to feel like crap about myself,â€ she said.
â€œI think probably, in my late twenties, I became a lot more like, Iâ€™ll do what I can to make sure I look the way I like to look. But in the end, thereâ€™s only so much you can do and Iâ€™m not going to punish myself because I donâ€™t look like the average person in a bikini.â€
